BlogHer, Inc. announced that its network now receives more than 4.23 million unique visitors per month, making it one of the leading networks for women online. According to Nielsen Netratings, BlogHer.com and BlogHerâ€™s publishing network of 955 blog affiliates achieved 4.237 million unique visitors and 17.7 million pageviews in September 2007. BlogHer.comâ€™s 60 editors and BlogHerâ€™s blog affiliates write across categories of interest to women online, including parenting, health, food, lifestyle, technology, business and politics, and all member blogs are continually vetted for content quality, category relevance, blog frequency and adherence to editorial standards.
BlogHer also brings its community members face-to-face by producing the worldâ€™s largest blogging conferences to mobilize, educate and inspire women. One thousand (1,000) bloggers attended BlogHer events in 2007, and the company recently announced expansion plans for 2008 that include the upcoming BlogHer â€™08 in San Francisco (July 18-21, 2008), BlogHer Business â€™08 in New York City (April 3-4, 2008) and the BlogHer Reach Out Tour, which will visit six different cities in the East/Southeast throughout October, 2008.
BlogHer began as a labor of love in February 2005, when Lisa Stone invited Elisa Camahort to launch a conference together for women who blog. Soon after, Elisa met Jory Des Jardins and invited her to join, too.
