This year, the BlogHer conference will take place both in the real world, in Chicago from July 27-29, and virtually, in Second Life, from July 27-28.
BlogHer Second Life will offer the opportunity to experience the Chicago conference live on a virtual platform, complete with general sessions, audio feeds, and even a virtual cocktail party! Similar to BlogHer ’07 in Chicago, the BlogHer Second Life virtual conference will feature an interactive format designed to inspire discussion.
“BlogHer is not just the world’s largest conference for bloggers – it’s the conference the community built,” said BlogHer Co-founder Elisa Camahort. “BlogHer is excited to work with Erin to open our virtual doors to members of our community around the world who aren’t able to join us physically in Chicago.”
“BlogHer has always been on the cutting edge of social media for women,” said Erin Kotecki Vest of Queen of Spain Blog. “It seemed only natural to take my business experience in Second Life and my role as contributing editor for BlogHer, and create an even broader opportunity for my fellow community members.”
