Grab Your Favorite Post Because Open Mic is Back for #BlogHer16
The post-VOTY Open Mic, hosted by Ann Imig from Listen to Your Mother, is back for #BlogHer16. Before you leave for the conference, dive into your archives and pull out a favorite post from this year to read in front of a friendly and energetic audience.
If you're not already familiar with BlogHer's Open Mic, it's one dash VOTY and one dash karoke ... without the music.
For nine years, BlogHer has been showcasing great posts from our community at the community keynote known as Voices of the Year (VOTY). If you've never been to VOTY, prepare to have your mind blown. It is some of the best of the Internet distilled into 90 minutes.
You will laugh, cry, laugh some more, and grab the hand of the person sitting next to you.
But here's the thing: After VOTY, you will be inspired and want to add your voice to the mix, and that is where the Open Mic comes into play.
Open Mic is an extension of VOTY, but it's not a preselected or curated experience. Instead it operates like a karaoke-style open mic: Pick your post, throw your name in the hat, and get the chance to read it out loud for other bloggers who are there to do the same ... and who are likely equally one-part-nervous, one-part-excited.
If you've never heard posts come alive, you're in for a real treat. But better yet, get on stage yourself and see what it feels like to read your words to huge crowd. Join us on Friday night from 7 - 9 p.m. for the Open Mic.
You can't see the show if you don't go to #BlogHer16. Register now for your seat in sunny Los Angeles August 4-6, 2016.
#BlogHer16: Experts Among Us is THE largest conference for women content creators in the world.
