She Writers, I am humbled. Indeed, I am in awe of the many talented people I am meeting here at BlogHer '11, who have blogs with a purpose.
One blogger I met writes about infertility and the struggle to get pregnant. Another writes about children with special needs. I met Karen, who writes for cats and about cats. Imagine that. I also met Trey who writes a blog called Daddy Mojo. Dominque has written a book and it's about to come out in paperback. It's called, "Slow Love - How I Lost My Job, Put on My Pajamas, and Found Happiness." I love the title, and the premise, but, She Writers, there's something missing.
I have now met 78 bloggers and writers, but only one of them is a She Writes member! And that's Sidney from Burbank, California. As for all the other bloggers I've met today, know that they will be receiving an invite from me to become a She Writes member soon.
Which just goes to show you, we have lots of work to do in getting our friends and family who write to come and join our fabulous community! So take a moment to think about who you know that writes, and ask them whether they're a member. Remember, you are all She Writes ambassadors and soon, you will also be the answer to your friends' prayers. That is, Once they realize She Writes full potential.
Next year's BlogHer conference will be in NYC, August 5-8. Registration is now open and if you sign up now you'll receive a 20% discount all this month. I expect to see more of you there. A whole She Writes delegation! Standing tall, standing proud, shoulder to shoulder, and knowing we are all part of the best resource around for women writers.
And that's my two cents.
