MEDIA ALERT: BlogHer Opens Call for Ideas for the World's Largest Blogging Conferences in 2012

BELMONT, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2011) - BlogHer, Inc. (, the premium cross-platform media network and publisher for women, has opened its Call for Ideas for both the fourth annual BlogHer Food Conference, taking place June 8-9, 2012 in Seattle, and the eight annual BlogHer Conference, taking place August 3-4, 2012 in New York City.

BlogHer will once again crowd-source programming, seeking the very best ideas to fill two full days of participatory conversations, topics, and speakers built by and for the 34 million women online BlogHer reaches every month. Past speakers have included television star Ricki Lake, PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Indra Nooyi, and Pulitzer-Prize-winning reporter Jose Antonio Vargas. Prominent authors and bloggers in attendance have included Ree Drummond (The Pioneer Woman), Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess), and Sarah Wu, aka "Mrs. Q." (Fed Up with School Lunch).

This June, the BlogHer Food Conference will bring together 500 of the country's top chefs, culinary experts, award-winning writers and authors, popular food bloggers, food activists, and top brands to learn, network, and show off the latest cooking techniques. The BlogHer Food Conference has sold out in each of its three previous years, and is expected to do so again in 2012.

This August, the BlogHer Annual Conference, described by Variety Magazine as "Comic-Con for women bloggers," is expecting between 4000-5000 attendees and will cover a comprehensive list of subjects to personal and professional bloggers. The conference will provide ten tracks of programming, including BlogHer's unique crowd-sourced "Room of Your Own" sessions. One hundred sponsors, many of which are Fortune 500 brands, will support the event and connect with the influential women of the BlogHer community in attendance.
