We’re Bringing You The BlogHer 09 Experience

by Susan

Yes, everyone is talking about BlogHer.

Are you at home, wishing you were here? Well, don’t worry… we’ve brought along our camera guy to all the parties and we’re talking to a ton of fabulous women and delivering it all to you.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be publishing video footage that will take the sting out of missing this event.

We think the best part of conferences such as BlogHer is meeting and talking to our blogging friends face to face. But since we can’t all meet in person, we love to bridge the gap with video. In our coming video interviews you can meet some of the bloggers we’ve been hanging out with here in Chicago.

And as you’ll hear in the video above, we are honestly impressed with the Kmart Design team and the line of women’s clothes from Kmart. Kmart is sponsoring our BlogHer 09 video shoot and we love that we can show off clothes that you can get for ridiculously low prices.

And until July 31st, you can enter for a chance to win one of 25, $100 Kmart gift cards being given away.

So stay tuned to 5 Minutes for Mom and we’ll bring the BlogHer experience to you!

(And don’t forget… you can catch up on last year’s BlogHer with our BlogHer08 videos.)
