The Wrap: Your Conference Wrap Up - April 22, 2016

BlogHer Original Post

It's Friday and welcome to another week of The Wrap.

The Wrap: Your Conference Wrap Up - April 22, 2016

Today as I write I feel a bit solemn. As you know by now, yesterday we lost one of the greatest artists who ever lived, Prince. I don't know if it's because he was such a huge part of my childhood or because he was so young, or perhaps because he was the true embodiment of pure talent that I find myself so sad, but I felt the need to share this with all of you as we mourn together...RIP sweet Prince.

This week Jennifer wrote a wonderful post about how you don't have to blog to learn amazing things at #BlogHer16 in Los Angeles. From content creation to finding your tribe, #BlogHer16 has something for everyone. Check out Jennifer's post for all the details.

Also, we are still accepting submissions for VOTY but only until May 8, so don't delay, get those submissions in. We have received so many so far and can't wait to dig in and read, see, and enjoy them all.

If you haven't already registered you can do so here and be part of #BlogHer16 in Los Angeles!

On to #BlogHerFood16...

We shared the "blog bling" that you can post to your website, signature line, or email to let people know you are joining us in Austin for another year of food 'fabulous-ness'. This year's bling is fun and I can't wait to see ya'll flashing your excitement!

Register today for #BlogHerFood16.

Now it's time to introduce you to another fabulous member of the Events Team. This week I would like you to say hello to Lucrecer Braxton.

The Wrap: Your Conference Wrap Up - April 22, 2016

If you are like me, I wasn't so sure how to pronounce Lucrecer's name but I can make it easy for you - just say Lu. Yup that simple. Now, I will say that on every conference call we have she says "Luuuuuuu-creeee-shuuuuh" when she announces herself - let me tell you, never a dull moment with this gal.

Lucrecer is our Events Programming Manager and that means she is the one who reviews all speaker submissions, vets our speakers, manages content flow, and then oversees all the sessions on site. She has been part of the BlogHer community for 8 years and is very active on Periscope and with her Hello Friend Podcast. Lucrecer has three kids and is currently living in Ohio. Make sure to say hi when you see her running around the conference!

Until next time...

Lori Luna
general manager, events
