Event Date: August 7, 2010 - 1:30pm - 2:45pm All of us need to keep up our technical skills to stay competitive in the job market, and now it’s becoming more and more common to see social media skills as a job skill requirement. Even those of us who felt pretty geeky a couple of years ago, may feel like we’ve fallen behind as new tools, apps and networks pop up every day.

Event Date: August 7, 2010 - 1:30pm - 2:45pm Brought to you by JELL-O . We’ve explored body image at many past BlogHer conferences, but we’ve never focused the spotlight on bloggers who are specifically and unapologetically getting in shape. How do you motivate, engage, get people excited, stay positive, and walk that line between loving the body you have now for what it can accomplish and seeking to help it do even more?
Event Date: August 7, 2010 - 1:30pm - 2:45pm We all know bloggers want to become authors.
Event Date: August 7, 2010 - 3:00pm - 4:15pm More and more of our community are using Wordpress. Ed Donahue and Shazia Mistry will focus on taking your blog design and layout to new heights, getting into the nuts and bolts of everything beyond basic HTML and CSS. Creating a WordPress Theme, led by Shazia Mistry Learn to create a magazine-style website with WordPress and Thematic . Thematic is a WordPress framework theme, with 13 widget-ready sidebars.
Event Date: August 7, 2010 - 10:45am - 12:00pm We’ve explored how “mommyblogging is a radical act,” but what happens when truly radical moms blog? For these bloggers motherhood isn’t the topic, it’s a catalyst for a new level of activism. Does naming motherhood as a fundamental part of these women’s identities impact how seriously they are taken?
Event Date: August 7, 2010 - 3:00pm - 4:15pm What are the online “rules of the road” that can keep even heated debates civil? Where is the line between dissenter and troll? How do you take personal responsibility for your role in the debate, and how do you encourage the behavior you want to see on your site and at the online communities you frequent? Four women will share their secrets to stirring their readers and engaging in friendly debate: Denise Tanton , community manager at BlogHer.com , hashes it out with Pam Spaulding author of Pam's House Blend and Suzanne Fortin, the writer behind Big Blue Wave .
Event Date: August 7, 2010 - 9:30am - 10:30am Our second annual International Activist Blogger scholarship program highlights the work of women who are galvanizing social change and social justice across their communities -- and by the very public and distributed nature of the Internet -- across the world. For some of them, this work is not without risk, yet still they continue. Because raising their voices is not a luxury or a whim or an option. It is a necessity.
