Paying It Forward

Image Credit: The Research Goddess

Jonesie, Ny and I are firm believers in putting out into the universe what we hope to receive. And, we like to conduct business that way. This includes “paying it forward” by lifting up others in recognition of those who lifted us up. Do I sound sappy enough yet? I say all of this, because it’s the truth!

We were contacted awhile back by the wonderful Research Goddess, Amybeth Hale, who was writing a story about “media professionals to watch,” and we were honored and humbled to learn that Elisa Camhort-Page of BlogHer had given our names as women to be featured in the story. {I especially love how she came up with the idea in the first place.}

You can link to the original story on Mashable here and the expanded story on the Research Goddess’ site here, but that’s not the point of me posting. What I really wanted to do is acknowledge the importance of paying it forward to those around you. In this day and age, when so much of social media is clouded with negative publicity and pitting various groups against each other, it is so heartwarming to know that, at the core of the medium, community and relationships remain the driving force. So thanks (again) to Elisa and Amybeth!

Who would you lift up to pay it forward?

Blogalicious @ BlogHer – I’m in a Bloggy State of Mind

The excitement about Blogalicious has been building ever since last October when Blogalicious Weekend 2009 was over. Folks have been buying tickets, exchanging numbers, booking hotel rooms, finding roommates and just looking forward to seeing each other again. We’re all pretty psyched about Miami and all the fabulousness that South Beach will add to the conference.

But, if you can’t wait until Miami to re-connect with all your friends IRL, then you MUST join us at BlogHer in New York City this summer. Blogalicious, in conjunction with BlogHer, is hosting one of BlogHer’s official community parties during the conference and it’s!

When you think about a song that epitomizes New York City, don’t you just think of “New York State of Mind” by Billy Joel and Jay-Z and Alicia Keys’ rendition of “Empire State of Mind”? Big lights, city streets, cocktails and we can now add….Blogalicious ladies.

We invite you to join us for a night of dancing, cocktails and just plain ole fun as we revel in a “Bloggy State of Mind.”

If you’re already registered for BlogHer (either a Full Conference pass, Saturday-only pass or a Party pass) please RSVP to reserve your spot on the guest list for this party. The list is open to any registered BlogHer attendee and we can’t wait to hang out with you. Please RSVP here.

We hope to see you in August and can’t wait for the BlogHer party of the year. If you’d like to sport some blog bling, here are your badges.
