Another sleepless night.....I just found out about BlogHer '09 in Chicago, was excited to go and then found out that it's sold out. Bummer!
Breakout session #1 has some great topics from this:
Identity/Passions: The Transformational Power of BloggingYour blogs are instigating change In Real Life, from changing how you make a living to changing your own self-perception. This session will inspire with stories of true transformation, but this session will also instigate transformation!
Business of You: Bloggers are Pioneers in a Post-“Employee” WorldBloggers have created any number of “portfolio careers” using blogs as a jumping off point for freelancing, consulting, starting businesses, etc. This session will look at the fundamentals of valuing your work, skills and expertise from a business perspective. How to market yourself, how to attach appropriate value to what you do, how to decide when you’ll do something gratis, and when it’s time for that gravy train to roll to a stop.
and that's just a nibble. I need to figure out how to get sufficient heads up!
