Sabrina Parsons and I will be headed down to San Francisco this weekend to attend BlogHer ’08.

Sabrina will be speaking:

What We Do: Taking Care of Business
If you’re a blogger, and your blog contributes to your livelihood…whether through direct monetization or as a platform to get freelance and consulting work…then it’s a business. But what does that mean? What should you be thinking about? Three experts are on hand to get down to brass tacks. Starting with taxes.

Kelly Phillips Erb is back to give you the low-down. Linsey Krolik will answer your legal questions, including when incorporation makes sense. Finally Sabrina Parsons will try to demystify the number one question many freelancers and consultants have: How do I quote for my services and build a proposal that attaches the appropriate value to my time and the work I do?

Friday, July 18th 2008, 10:30am – 11:45am – California West room at the St. Francis Westin.

I’ll be attending the sessions and meeting some fantastic women who have either made a business of blogging, do it for fun or an outlet, or to teach and share their knowledge.

I’m very excited about attending the conference and hope to bring back a lot of great stories about the event to share.
