BlogHer Inc., the community and network for blogs authored by women, has announced an expanded 2008 program of events, including the annual conference, specialized business blogging conference, and a tour of six eastern and southern American cities.

“In our fourth year, we are excited to produce events that embody what we find women are seeking online: Greater fulfillment via community connection and exposure for their blogs,” said Elisa Camahort, BlogHer Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer. “Our members inspired our theme — Reach! — and in addition to our annual and business conferences, we’re excited to hit the road in October with BlogHer’s first-ever Reach Out Tour, as we endeavor to bring together members of our community in more areas of the country.”

The conference series includes the following:

    Somehow I doubt that the year designation in the names of each of these events begins with an opening single quotation mark. Your smart quotes are too dumb to publish.
