BlogHer launches group weblog

The BlogHer organizers have relaunched their website as an aggregated group weblog (these seem to be all the rage these days: BlogHer [beta] | Where the women bloggers are.
It looks like a cool site, well worth reading and the stream of blog posts definitely adds more value than simply promoting the conference, which is also in and of itself a cool thing (at least the first one, last year, was, and I expect this year’s follow up to be just as good) but isn’t quite as “sticky” as website content once you’ve signed up to attend.
I imagine there’s a small risk of alienating newer women bloggers and reinforcing the idea that there’s a clique or inner circle that is featured, but an open policy for inclusion should help mitigate that risk.

    Hi Xian, thanks for pointing to our new site. Rest assured women are listing their blogs left and right…and as one of the folks moving them through the queue I can tell you that I don’t know personally most of these blogs or bloggers, and that being part of any group, clique or circle is not a prerequisite to getting on board.
    And our guidelines for inclusion are here:

    See you at BlogHer 🙂
