Blogher: Blogging Her Way

by Marianne Richmond on July 28, 2006

Blogging her Way is the description of the Blogher conference in this morning’s CNET News. This follows yesterday’s story from the Pittburgh’s Tribune-Review, Women Make Themselves Heard Through Blogs, noted by the quoted and quotable Jeneanne Sessum.

CNET noted that there were 700 attendees from around the world at the sold out conference, "We can all agree now, women are the power of Web 2.0," said Lisa Stone, one of the founders of the conference, whose numbers have swelled from last year, when around 300 attended."

The article notes the "deep sense of community" built around the Blogher site which hosts 20 topic categories, 60 contributing editors, 4100 bloggers and a growing ad network. Elisa Camahort describes the conference theme, "How blogs are changing your world" and explained that she and her partners see blogging as having a very tangible effect on many women’s lives.

CNET quoted Elisa Camahort explaining that the ad network " is based on a revenue-sharing model in which the bloggers with the best traffic share the highest percentage of ad revenue with the three co-founders," Lisa Stone, Jory Des Jardins and Elisa. Elisa also mentioned "that 80 percent of BlogHer readers make more than $50,000 a year, 90 percent have at least a college education and half write their own blogs…It’s the idea of amplified influence,"

For those like Jeneanne Sessum and myself who were not able to make it to Blogher, there is some awesome live blogging:
