there's a blogher conference going on

July 30 in Santa Clara, CA

BlogHer is a network for women bloggers to draw on for exposure, education, and community. By holding a day-long conference on July 30, 2005, and establishing an online hub, BlogHer is initiating an opportunity for greater visibility, learning and success for individual women bloggers and for the community of bloggers as a whole. for more info

Specifically I'd be interested in discussing or hearing about some of the topics that have come up many times w/in my blogfam or here on my own diary (but I'd probably have to propose a talk myself for it to be heard)

My interests would be:

1. The feminist voice in hip hop blogging - where are the feminist hip hop bloggers? what do they have to say? how do they negotiate being feminist with loving hip-hop?

2. An idenity blogging talk that of course includes discussion around race somehow - you know, being a black female blogger - remember where da ladies at? stand up.

3. A topic often discussed, but I don't think I've ever heard full on from a woman's perspective is how journalism and blogging are informing one another. You know the usual journalism .vs. blogging, but with different insight.

4. Music blogging also would be different coming from women, b/c I think they way women would approach enacting with the technologies would be different - hmm, so I guess I'd actually be more interested in the technologies for music blogging as well as the technologies for creting the music. (I've experienced my own little experiments with this in the past.

5. I'd also be interested in learning about turning a blog into your career, for instance I ran across YPulse: Media for the Next Genertaion the other day, and it appears as if this woman has totally turned this into her livelihood. Beyond the google ads, blog ads, industry brains, etc.

(I guess now is as good a time as any for me to share this article : In Search of the Blog Economy that I read in econtent back in Feb.

I'm sure I could come up with more ideas, but that's it for now.
