Yes, Barack Obama is Going to Address Attendees of BlogHer 12!



Obama is Going to BlogHer

BlogHer 12 attendees won’t just be hearing from Andrew Wilder and Keidra Chaney on Avoid Analytics Overload: Google Analytics Tips and Deb Rox, Faiqa Khan, and Kelly Wickham on Blogging the Fine Line Between Your Identity and the Issues and Martha Stewart in her lunchtime keynote, but they will hear from the President of the United States. Yes, Barack Obama will be speaking to the ladies (and men) in attendance at BlogHer 12 in New York City.

President Obama won’t be there in person, but will talk to BlogHer attendees via live video feed on Thursday, August 2,at 4:30 p.m.. The organizers of BlogHer, being a non-partisan organization, issued invitations to both the Republican and Democratic campaigns and Obama took them up on it. This isn’t the first time that the Obama team has worked with BlogHer; the campaign has done a lot of outreach to the BlogHer community. Not only did Obama sit down with BlogHer back in 2008, but Michelle Obama has done some blogging for BlogHer!

If you won’t be at BlogHer to see Obama’s address, don’t worry: they will post the video after the fact.

Are you going to BlogHer? Are you excited that Obama will be speaking?
