BlogHer ’11: Call for Ideas!

Hi Blogalicious Bloggers!

We know you’re decompressing from a whirlwind weekend in Miami (as are we!) but we wanted to share the following call for ideas with you in the hopes that you respond to the call and help the women of BlogHer continue to bring a diversity of voices to their conference program:

BlogHer is passionate about delivering the most inclusive and diverse experience to our conference-goers that we possibly can, including (and particularly) on our speaking roster. Not only do we look for diverse speakers, but we have a commitment to bring *new* speakers to BlogHer each year. Every single year we aim to feature new corners of the blogosphere and to have the majority of speakers at BlogHer be new and fresh voices, focusing more on those than on “stars”. New this year, we’re also adding experienced, strong moderators to our panels, who can help govern and guide the sessions.

The Call for Ideas is open through the end of this month, and people can submit themselves or others as speakers or moderators, or just propose ideas for the kind of panels and content they’d like to see at the conference. More information is here.
