BlogHer launched it’s new site redesign on Tuesday of this week. It looks GREAT! Of course along with any major overhaul of this nature comes many glitches, updates and adjustments. The BlogHer team has been working on ‘overload’ for quite some time now; and this week we all took it to another level.
What a great bunch of people, and I want to say some thank you’s to a few who have managed to keep my brain as unscrambled as possible. Thank you to Denise….who is just so great in every way; and though we’ve just started working together, I feel like I’ve known her forever. Thank you to Mike and Graham for all your technical savvy and perseverance…I’d give anything to understand even half of what you do. Thank you to Kristin and Kristy, who are so invaluable to BlogHer I can’t imagine being without them. And, of course, to the Terrific Trio….Lisa, Jory and Elisa, who have managed to stay afloat even with the most exhausting and hectic schedules I’ve seen in a long time.
Timing is everything….and on the heels of this launch just happens to come BlogHer ’07; right here in my backyard. The conference opened this morning and will run through Sunday, the 29th in the Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier in Chicago. I’ll be joining the festivities, along with the 750+ other blogging addicts who already have a day up on me. What an amazing agenda BlogHer ’07 has.
Aside from the wonderful sessions, panels and speakers, (Elizabeth Edwards included)….there are all sorts of demos and displays, raffles, cocktail receptions, breakfasts, lunches, live music…..lots of food and drink and even the Yahoo Internet Café and Bookstore. There’s so much going on, I don’t know if I could survive three days. But while I’m there, I plan to take it all in and hope that Jory will catch me if I start to wilt…she’s good at that; and doesn’t really have a concept of what wilting is.
