BlogHer began in 2005 with a blog and a California-based conference. Today, itís one of the most popular online communities on the Internet. For female bloggers, the BlogHer Web site (and corresponding annual conference) offers a world of possibility, tips, advice and words on every topic under the sun. If youíre not familiar with this increasingly popular phenomenon, itís time to start exploring BlogHer.
BlogHer (http://www.blogher.com/) touts itself as a ďcommunity for women who blog,Ē and thatís exactly what it is. Created by women for women, the site is a gathering place/showcase for female bloggers who have something to say, or at least something to type.
More than two thousand blogs offer words on every topic you can name when you access the pages of BlogHer. Search the site by topic, blogger or keyword and youíre bound to find results. Featured topics on BlogHer include art and design, astrology, beauty, body image, careers, cars, finances, entertainment, fashion, feminism, food, green living, politics, motherhood, sex and technology. If you can think of it, someone from the BlogHer community has probably already covered it. You can also check the siteís Blogroll to see a full list of all blogs in the community.
BlogHer may have started as a humble blog and conference (three hundred attended the first event in San Jose, California), but today the site is much, much more. The annual BlogHer conference is a newsworthy event which boasts many keynote speakers, including notable women in the writing industry and members of the BlogHer community. Recently, the community partnered with Women@NBCU and iVillage so the words of BlogHer members can be spread far and wide. Through the terms of the agreement, iVillage, Oxygen.com and Bravo will all feature regular BlogHer content and information on the community itself.
