BlogHer '09: I'm speaking!

I've been given the go-ahead to announce this, so, guess what?

BlogHer '09: I'm Speaking!

I'm going to be on a panel at BlogHer '09 in Chicago! Here's the description:


Identity/Passions: LifeBlogging Outside the Lines: When you’re not a Geek, a Political Wonk or a MommyBlogger

Friday, July 24, 1:15-2:30 PM

Blogging started as a geek's game, and by 2004 political bloggers were making waves and mainstream media news. Post-BlogHer 2005 the rise of the MommyBloggers, first as cultural, then as commercial, force began. So where does that leave the rest of us... blogging about who we are and what we do with as much dedication, passion and amazing writing as any of those other blogging archetypes? We know that many of you who don't fit neatly into the above boxes share the same concerns:

Join Shameeka Ayers, Trish Bendix, Jane Gassner, and Amber Rhea and come flex your blogging muscles.

I'm really looking forward to this panel! And I have to say, the title amuses me... remember when "lifeblogging" was called, well, blogging? Heh. Also, I am a geek, but I know what they mean... my blog isn't trying to be TechCrunch (thank god).

If you're able to make it to BlogHer, register soon to get early-bird pricing through this Saturday!

Ewwww cool! Congrats. One of these years I'm gonna get to BlogHer. Then I'll be able to hear you as you'll likely be a regular speaker there from now on.
