BlogHop Blog Conference At Home

 Missing out on BlogHer ’11? Don’t worry – you won’t miss out on ALL the fun – we have a treat for you today because Blog Conference Newbie is coordinating with some amazing bloggers, vloggers, writers and women knowledable in social media to bring you some fabulous conference sessions. Right from home!

We’re calling it the Blog Hop Conference and I think you’re gonna love the line-up we have for you. Half of the sessions will post on Friday, August 5th and half of the sessions will post on Saturday, August 6th so be sure to check out EVERYTHING to maximize your learning potential.

Now I have to say – none of these writers are getting paid or compensated in any way for presenting you the skills and knowledge they are giving you today.

Do them a favor and show some love by stumbling, tweeting (#bloghopcon), sharing on Facebook, clicking that 1+ button and leaving a comment whenever you feel led.  If you aren’t following the author yet, do so!

It will be best way to show your support of the Blog Hop Conference.

    Thank you so much for this resource!

    Yay! I’m so excited to read up on these posts! I have been having major BlogHer envy, but haven’t yet read a post written by any attendees about anything they’ve learned outside of networking and swag! LOL! At least I can do this in the comfort of my own home (and pjs!), without any additional costs! But don’t get me wrong, I still wanna go next year! ;-)
