BlogHer in Spirit

Blogher250I think most people are aware that the BlogHer conference is currently under way in San Jose. From what I’ve read about it – it’s going really well and there are some wonderful bloggers in attendance.

However not everyone is in a financial or life situational position to be able to attend and while there’s plenty to read on their blog about what’s happening Phat Mommy is encouraging non attendees to attend BlogHer in Spirit. It’s a nice idea and she’s followed it up with a post on Friday’s topics.

A number of bloggers have picked up the idea and run with it including Erica from LittleMummy withtwo posts on first day workshops – the first on audience building and the second on generating an income from blogs (official page on the sessions).

update: Jen is Live Blogging from Blogher, Huffington post has notes on the keynote and Laura is sharing some impressions – as it Lipsticking.
