The 10x10 Presentations at BlogHer '14: 13 Videos You Don't Want to Miss

The 10x10 presentations made by long-standing community members rank as one of the highlights of BlogHer '14 in San Jose. These intelligent, witty, entrepreneurial, big-hearted, thick-skinned, been-there-lived-through-it-have-the-blog-to-show-for-it people took to the stage and shared the truth of their journey over the past ten years. We, the attendees, learned a lot and came away inspired by what our written word on the web can do.

Make sure to watch each video as each speaker brings something important to the stage, to the table, to your listening ear.
