Yi-Tan? I know what you are thinking. What the hell is she talking about now? Well, Yi-Tan is an invented phrase in Mandarin Chinese meaning, “Conversations about Change.”
Jerry Michalski had such a great time during last week’s call with BlogHer’s organizers Lisa Stone, Elisa Camahort, and Jory Des Jardins along with Nancy White that he wanted to expand on some of the topics that were discussed, namely MommyBlogging. He invited me along with Mindy Roberts to join our BlogHer organizers to discuss MommyBlogging tomorrow, Monday, August 15th @10:30am PDT/ 1:30pm EDT. From the term itself to the impact MommyBloggers can have not only on the internet but in the community in general.
Join us! Come talk to us about MommyBlogging and your thoughts regarding this particular aspect of the blogging world. I look forward to joining this amazing group and hearing from all of you. (Or as we say here in Texas: y’all!)
You will find the official invite in the extended entry.
BlogHer Afterthoughts – Part 2
Yi-Tan Weekly Tech Call #46
Monday, August 15, 2005
Last week we talked to the first BlogHer conference’s organizers, discussing their do-ocracy, the benefits of authenticity and the listening shortage in our society. In so doing, we uncovered a few interesting paths that we will follow in our next call.
This Monday, we’ll focus on “MommyBlogging,” a term some moms who blog find demeaning and others have adopted wholeheartedly (see our page on Monikers that Flipped and add your own).
To cover Mommyblogging and the places it takes us, two new guests – Jenn Satterwhite and Mindy Roberts will join last week’s guests, Elisa Camahort, Lisa Stone, Jory Des Jardins and Nancy White. Jerry will be back moderating. Together, we’ll ponder:
* Is Mommyblogging a fad, a tiny niche in the blogosphere or something bigger?
* What does it mean for the future of marketing?
* What does all this say about the man/woman divide? Is there one? If so, what does it do to markets? to conversations? to decisions?
Yes, there are Daddybloggers.
An IRC Chat will be available during the call, here.
