Regional Opportunities to Connect with Bloggers

In addition to promoting events and activities for women bloggers here in Cincinnati, from time to time we like to share opportunities outside of the Tri-State that you might be interested in.  Here are two regional blogging conferences you might be interested in. Let us know if you plan on attending either event as we are keeping a blogroll of those attending from Cincinnati.  Also, for BlogHer we are considering hosting a mixer if there are enough bloggers from our area attending (last year there were only about 5 of us there).



February 6-8
Nashville, TN
Hotel Preston
Presented by Blissfully Domestic

About BlissDom09 (from their site): 

What does “Bliss” mean to you? For some it means keeping a happy home, for others it’s taking over the world.  And for the women attending BlissDom ’09…it’s having it all.  And by having it all we mean our hopes, fears, laughter, and tears.  This conference won’t be about being big, it will be about being real.  You can bet on learning about the latest in blogging, entrepreneurship, social media, and being the best women we can be.  You better believe you’ll be bonding, opening your heart, and opening your mind as experiences are shared and friendships are forged.  Everyone’s got a state of bliss…at BlissDom ’09 you’ll define it and achieve it!

The belles of BlissDom (that’s you!) will descend upon Nashville, Tennessee on February 6 and 7 and stay at the fabulous Hotel Preston. Throughout the weekend you’ll learn from other women about building your blog, your brand, and your business while achieving bliss in those other areas that are so important too: being a mom, a wife, and being true to yourself.  We’ve got some amazing panels in the works with women who are all defining what Bliss means to them that are passionate about paying it forward and helping you find your Bliss.

BlogHer ’09           

July 23-25
Chicago, IL
Chicago Sheraton
Presented by BlogHer 

About BlogHer 09 (from their site): 

Building on the momentum of four consecutive sold-out annual conferences, BlogHer ’09 will bring bloggers from every corner of the blogosphere together for hands-on learning, rich discussions, opportunities to meet with the brands that support them and plentiful networking opportunities. BlogHer ’09 will take place on July 23-25, bringing over one thousand attendees together to celebrate 2009’s theme: “In Real Life.”

One of the number one reasons we all attend BlogHer every year, whether coming for the first time or as an old-timer, is to meet our online community “in real life”. So after five years we think it’s a great time to celebrate the fact that our blogging, whether personal, professional or political, has brought us real work, real friends, real satisfaction and is most definitely a significant part of our real life!

BlogHer ’09 will be at the The Chicago Sheraton and Towers from July 23-25, 2009. We will kick off on Thursday July 23rd with out third annual BlogHer Business Conference, and will continue with the two-day 5th annual BlogHer Annual Conference on Friday and Saturday, July 24-25.
