Sometimes, my job is pretty cool. Like today, when BlogHer cofounder Jory Des Jardins came to talk to our company about how BlogHer could help our clients.
To a packed house of eager ad folk, she introduced BlogHer at work (the number-one community for and guide to blogs by women) and how it helps connect advertisers with the Web’s most sought-after “connectors.” She outlined the BlogHer Ads network (which WMAG is part of), the BlogHer conferences (which I giddily attended last summer), and the BlogHer community in general.
Meanwhile, I sat there all excited because there was a picture of me at BlogHer ’07 on one of her slides. Yes, I’m a dork. Afterward, Tela and I (along with MommyBits Shannan, whose hubby works with us) introduced ourselves to Jory and chatted about blog stuff.
Jory was so cool, smart, down-to-earth—I really enjoyed meeting one of the savvy women behind such a kickass organization. And it felt good to know that BlogHer is just as honest and upfront with the advertisers and marketers it deals with as it is with us blogger-mamas. Not something you see every day!
