Preparing For the Blogher Conference

BlogHer is less than a week away and I'm staring to feel the time crunch! I am going along with Dawn, Julio, and Armen to represent Experience Project at the conference and learn from the expertise of some top bloggers in the country.

This week was a little hectic as I have been reaching out to many people trying to get feedback and hear their impressions of our site. I have been really impressed by the response rate and how friendly many of the women have been. It's one of those jobs, however, where we are front loading all of the leg work and hoping it continues to pay off in the coming weeks. We leave Thursday morning for the conference and I'm afraid Mon-Wed in the office is going to be a little hectic because a lot of planning has gone into this weekend. Thursday, in particular, is a really big day for Experience Project because we are hosting a cocktail party at the conference for many of the speakers and attendees. It's one of the first big efforts EP has made to spread the word about our site and solicit input so we are hoping all goes well!

I'll keep you posted as the day nears and as the preparation continues to take place. But now it is Saturday and I'm going to relax for the rest of the weekend before craziness starts on Monday.

Thanks for the thoughts TTDD. We are working hard to improve the site and will be undertaking some really creative marketing efforts soon. Please continue to give feedback-- we love hearing from users!

Sounds like massive things are underway at EPHQ!!! Good luck to everyone - hope nobody loses their sanity permanently in the excitement ;) And it's interesting, I have noticed a preponderance of female users on this site, although I must admit I've not really pondered on why this is. The exact ratio would be quite interesting, although perhaps that will change as a result of the BlogHer publicity!
