Do you have a BlogHer Hero?
I’m so happy to break news about a contest that Wiley is launching at BlogHer Business tomorrow.
Speaking for many people at Wiley, we’ve all been blown away about the community that is the blogosphere. How people can use this means of communication to inspire others. To comfort others. To advance the causes that impact women all over the word. Maybe you’re thinking of some special blogger who has made that kind of an impact on others. If so, and you want to “pay it forward” for him/her, have we got an opportunity for you.
Announcing the “Who’s Your BlogHer Hero?” contest. In a nutshell, here’s how this is going to go down…I quote from the official ruleswhen I say that we’re looking for “a blogger that has made an impact in the life of women and how that blog inspires passion, innovation and ability to inspire a community.” Said blogger can be male or female, btw. The nominator will send in a 100 word essay on why this person is worthy of being the BlogHer hero, and a team of judges will pick one blogger to award an awesome prize to. The prize in question is a trip for 2 to BlogHer in San Francisco this summer.
Trust me, there’s tons of legalese on the official rules page, so don’t take my word for it (seriously, DON’T take my word for it) and check it out on the BlogHer site. I can’t talk about any of the judging or criteria, but I can say that I am thrilled to have this opportunity to partner with the great folks at BlogHer on this amazing opportunity. I’d also like to thank Alison Clarke at Wiley who has worked her tush off to make this dream of ours a reality. More to come!
