You've taught us a lot with your posts and your in-depth survey responses. To reflect the goals of this community, we've expanded on the mission we developed for BlogHer '05 to encompass our future initiatives and to answer the question, Why are we doing this?
MISSION: Why do we exist? Our mission is to create an opportunity for all kinds of women bloggers to pursue exposure, education, and community.
POSITION: What makes us different from other blogging organizations? BlogHer evangelizes blogging by, for and to women.
VISION: BlogHer and its members work to manifest leadership by wired women. Here's what BlogHer is working toward, with your help:
a do-ocracy where BlogHer doesn't serve women bloggers, but rather creates the opportunity for all women bloggers to help ourselves and work together to voice and achieve our goals--professional, technical, social and/or personal;
a robust Web network equipped with the tools we need to deliver on the education, exposure and community of women bloggers, branching out beyond the blog to create a true community resource and meeting place;
a community that regularly meets in person, at regional, local and specialized meet-ups, as well as at our annual conference, to continue our conversations. We are committed to extending our conversations and network even to those who cannot attend these meetings in person.
