At the Blogher ’07 conference, A World of Difference, it was nice to finally see the dynamic women behind the blogs. Wendy Piersall of eMoms at Home and Valencia Roner of Why Black Women are Angry are some of the many blogs from which I draw inspiration.
It was also nice to see some familiar faces at the conference. Aliza Sherman, founder of Webgrrls, and Nelly Yusupova, current Webgrrls NYC chapter leader were on hand to speak. Fellow Metropolitan College of New York MBA alumna Lynne d Johnson, was also on hand to moderate a panel on maintaining safer spaces online. She asked me “What took me so long? (to speak)”
Overall, I feel as if I have come full circle by me speaking at BlogHer. Being able to see familiar faces, yet also being able to embrace the present. I am inspired to do more things with blogging than I thought were possible.
