After reading our article about "mommy blogging," I became interested in learning more about BlogHer mentioned in our article. I had a preconceived notion of what their website was going to look like and fortunately I was wrong. It covered issues ranging from news/politics to dating/love advice. BlogHer was found in 2005 by Lisa Stone, Elisa Camahort Page and Jory Des Jardins. They describe this website as "a powerful and unique cross-platform trifecta, BlogHer leads the new women's web as a social publisher, as a research hub and with its in-person events. Today BlogHer is more than a digital buy, and more than a social play: We are an organically grown community, based on trust, and built with handcrafted, custom content programs that celebrate women as well as brands (BlogHer)" They have a section for publishing, for advertising and for following their website. The Forbes magazine mentioned them in an article in 2010, they said " Celebrating its fifth anniversary this month, BlogHer has 76,000 registered bloggers plus 80 paid contributing editors. BlogHer’s advertising network counts a second tier of 2,500 affiliated bloggers with revenue-sharing agreements. In total the site and the network brings in some 20 million unique visitors monthly, with content syndicated everywhere from iVillage to Yahoo!(Forbes)." I was amazed by the amount and variety of content on BlogHer.
