BlogHer is a community and media company created in partnership with women in social media. Lisa Stone, Elisa Camahort Page, and Jory Des Jardins founded BlogHer in 2005 in response to the question, “Where are all the women bloggers?”
Today, BlogHer is the largest community of women who blog: 25+ million unique visitors per month (Nielsen NetRatings). Engaged, influential, and info-savvy, these women come to BlogHer to seek and share advice, opinions, and recommendations. BlogHer’s team works hard to bring you the best and brightest conversations, writers, and speakers – online and in person. That’s what we do best.
- BlogHer Conferences, the world’s largest conference for women in social media
- BlogHer Publishing Network, with 2,500 blogs, ours is one of the largest and highest-quality publishing networks of blogs authored by women
- BlogHer.com, the Web’s leading guide to the hottest news and trends among women in social media, renowned as a community where women speak their minds on every topic from politics to parenting, in an atmosphere of integrity and respect
BlogHer is run by its three co-founders and a team of 50+ employees via offices in New York and Silicon Valley. We are proud to have venture backing from Venrock, the GE/NBC Universal’s Peacock Equity Fund, and Azure Capital Partners.
BlogHer Handmade, in partnership with the Creative Connection Event, is the newest addition to the BlogHer conference roster, and will extend BlogHer’s reach and influence further into the handmade sector.
This partnership was created to serve two active and eager communities:
- Women who have turned their handmade creativity into enviable small businesses and who want to learn more about how to use social media to promote and distribute their work; and
- Women who are blogging about their handmade creativity, building loyal enthusiastic supporters, and who want to learn more about how to take their craft to the next level by turning a hobby into a business.
BlogHer is the meeting place for women bloggers and their readers, and the Creative Connection Event has already proven to be the gathering place for creative women in the handmade sector. These two communities, coming together, can develop a strong support network to learn from each other and create one super-power, world-dominating force of handmade goodness!
