I’m currently in the closing keynote, listening to Elizabeth Edwards answer questions from the audience. I can’t keep up and live blog it, but I’m sure there are many people who are writing about this right now.
I have a lot of link love to leave when I get home. I won’t have time tonight, because of the party. And my plane leaves around 7 in the morning (what was I thinking?!), so I won’t get to it in the morning either. I met a lot of great women, and saw some old friends, too. There were some traveling snafus, but over all, it has been a great conference. I hope to recap as soon as possible.
If you got my card and you’re stopping by – HI! I loved meeting and talking to each and every one of you. Looking forward to visiting everyone’s blogs/ sites.

How did you first realize this was something you wanted to do and when did you start making money off of it.
Jody – strategy was to go out of mainstream; get brand out quickly by launching the blog.
Paula – started on blogger for links to give editors. She caught the bug & learned ads make money on blogs. Recently changed focus to create a list of blogger salaries.
Stefania – in a playgroup w/editor at weblogs inc. Both were blogging and she hired Stefania. No plan or vision or strategy. It just happened.
