Public Speaking on Fashion Blogs

by jennine on July 28, 2010

norwegian wood dress

Today I’m furiously typing away as there are some big things coming up in the next week… well tomorrow actually. Tomorrow I head down to Mountain View to give a Google Talk mostly for my involvement with Independent Fashion Bloggers. And then, next week I’m off to Blogher. It’s all kind of nerve wracking as I’m pretty much all in the moment 99% of the time, taking a look at everything that I’ve experienced over the last three years and talking about it, is kind of crazy. Tomorrow I’m wearing the dress I bought from Norwegian Wood.. Ever since I wrote about the new collection, I knew I had to have this dress. I haven’t properly styled it here, as really, that presentation isn’t going to write it self.

GStyle, Google Offices, Mountain View July 29th

It’s a huge honor to be invited there,Google has got to be one of the most innovative companies in the world.  The fact that they are taking interest in fashion online is one of the best validators a blogger can ask for. For all these years bloggers have been in a strange place, between a world that does not embrace technology (fashion) and a world that does not embrace fashion (techies). Fashion/Clothing/Shopping  did not even make a subject bloggers blog about in Technorati’s 2009 State of the Bloggosphere which indicates just how small we are. And 2009 was the year people said blogging hit the mainstream. Hopefully, they’ll post the video on the Google Talks YouTubechannel, but until then, wish me luck!

Blogher Conference NYC, August 6th 1:15-2:30 pm

Quite possibly the largest and most influential women’s blogging network, the Blogher Conference is something that everyone should keep an eye on. What’s been going on in the Mommy Blog sector is also happening here in Fashion Blogging and there is a lot of cross over between the two. The panel I will be speaking on Passions: This Year Fashion is Serious Business with Sarah Conley from Style IT and Nichelle Pace from STYLEMOM we’ll talk about what’s it like to be a fashion blogger.

I really hope you can make it!

I love the dress …and the shoes ~ Good luck with your forums. I got involved with the Google fashion sector because I knew you were a part of it so I figured it must be legit. But I wonder still why you don’t have BlogHer sponsor your blogs ;)

oh cool! tony is amazing, and i believe it’s an important program for fashion bloggers, so i’m glad you’re part of it.
yeah, blogher is great, but i haven’t done network ads except on few occasions, only now, I’m going to go with style coalition because they’ve been really good to me.

Hi Maegan. Please tell me more about Google fashion. I’m a new blogger and could really use the exposure. I’d appreciate your help! I love your last outfit post - excellent photos.
