Wow, what a summer. I honestly didn't anticipate speaking at so many places in such rapid succession. Last week was Girls in Tech, Thanks to Thanks Tony Wang, this week I'm preparing to head down to the Google campus down in Mountain View to speak as part of their GStyle program that's about to be made public exactly what it is. (I really don't know myself.)
GStyle, Google Offices, Mountain View July 29th
It's a huge honor to be invited there,Google has got to be one of the most innovative companies in the world. The fact that they are taking interest in fashion online is one of the best validators a blogger can ask for. For all these years bloggers have been in a strange place, between a world that does not embrace technology (fashion) and a world that does not embrace fashion (techies). Fashion/Clothing/Shopping did not even make a subject bloggers blog about in Technorati's 2009 State of the Bloggosphere which indicates just how small we are. And 2009 was the year people said blogging hit the mainstream. Hopefully, they'll post the video on the Google Talks YouTubechannel, but until then, wish me luck!
Blogher Conference NYC, August 6th 1:15-2:30 pm
Quite possibly the largest and most influential women's blogging network, the Blogher Conference is something that everyone should keep an eye on. What's been going on in the Mommy Blog sector is also happening here in Fashion Blogging and there is a lot of cross over between the two. The panel I will be speaking on Passions: This Year Fashion is Serious Business with Sarah Conley from Style IT and Nichelle Pace from STYLEMOM we'll talk about what's it like to be a fashion blogger.
I really hope you can make it!
