    Good time for womens to discuss about internet marketing.

  • Adrian

    Well, I have to say, your views align perfectly with mine on this topic. I’ve been to THREE sessions of Bloggy Boot Camp and TWO sessions of EVO (and have already bought my 2012 ticket!). I would dearly love to go to BlogHER also, but haven’t managed to make it yet.

    Both Bloggy Boot Camp and EVO are tremendously awesome and are run by women of integrity who have an intense desire to strengthen and support bloggers (mostly women, but some men) everywhere! I admire that and I support them in every way possible. When you put good out into the world, it has a way of boomeranging back to you and I wish them all the good fortune in the world with these conferences!

  • Lisa

  • Stormy Knight

    Thanks for the roundup. It’s getting to be conference planning time again. 😉

  • Sharon

    I will be at Blogher with my heels on my feet and my mind open to new ideas and hoping to make lasting connections. I chose to attend Blogher because it seem as if it were the most diverse group of women bloggers.
