Upcoming Engagements at Google’s GStyle and Blogher

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!

    How exciting! It is great to see you speaking at all of these events (even if I can only attend virtually).

    I am super excited about GStyle – hoping that Tony added me to the list.

    And BlogHer should be interesting – I am happy to see the focus moving away from the Mommybloggers a little bit.

    Trying to figure out how to register for the Blogher Conference in NYC, sounds like a great resource. The website is kind of confusing though. (+_+)

    I’m so surprised Shopping didn’t make Technorati’s list. That seems crazy to me (my Google Reader is filled w/ ONLY fashion blogs, it seems!)

    Anyway, good luck w/ all your engagements. I was actually offered an internship w/ BlogHer earlier this year but couldn’t afford it financially. I wish I could have, though–I would’ve loved to fly to NYC to hear you speak 🙂

    I attended your live talk yesterday and thought you did a really great job. Thanks you for spearheading IFB and creating a powerful (and fashionable) voice for all fashion bloggers.
