  1. I really enjoyed listening to you and Rita. It was fun hearing the voices behind the photos. More importantly, I learned a lot more about Blogher especially with regard to tips on being syndicated. Anyway, thanks again, Susan, and more power to you and Blogher! Now that I think about it, I ‘met’ you through Blogher, hehehe….. Have a great week!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! I think BlogHer is awesome, so it was an easy interview to do. I thought Rita’s info was great – especially things like the sections that are more and less competitive, the signature stuff etc.
