#DigitalSisterhood Wednesday Shout Out to #BlogHer15 Digital Sisters

image

Happy #DigitalSisterhood Wednesday Digital Sisters!

Today, I am giving a special #DigitalSisterhood Wednesday shout out to my #BlogHer15 Digital Sisters who are traveling to New York City to attend the 11th annual BlogHer conference on July 16-18 at the Hilton New York.

#BlogHer15 Digital Sisters come celebrate the diverse beauty, boldness, and brilliance of our BlogHer community on July 16 from 8-11PM at the third annual #MultiCulti Party at the Hilton New York. I am co-hosting the party with two amazing Digital Sisters, Pauline Campos and Dwana De La Cerna.

Guess what? The first person who arrives at the #MultiCulti Party will receive a signed copy of my book, Digital Sisterhood: A Memoir of Fierce Living Online.

There’ll be other goodies too including the #MultiCulti Party signature drink (alcoholic and nonalcoholic) created by Pauline Campos, #MultiCulti food and cake, #MultiCulti music, and the “What’s On Your #MultiCultiMind?” Post-It Wall that allows you to write and share your definition of #MultiCulti.

Follow @anandaleeke, @pauline_campos, and @justdwana on Instagram and Twitter for updates. Use #BlogHer15 and #MultiCulti hashtags to stay connected.

Throwback Thursday: #BlogHer14 #MultiCulti Party Memories

Happy Throwback Thursday!

Today, I’m reminiscing about the fun I had last year co-producing and co-hosting the second annual MultiCulti Party with my Digital Sisters Pauline Campos and Dwana De La Cerna at the 10th annual BlogHer conference held in San Jose, California.

Pauline and Dwana are two of the best people to work with. Their brilliant and creative ideas coupled with their commitment to celebrating diversity in the BlogHer community make them a joy to work with!

We thoroughly enjoyed meeting our BlogHer family. Check out some of the event photos below.

My favorites moments happened while I was greeting our guests and welcoming them to the party with a smile and free drink tickets. In those moments, I had a chance to connect one-on-one with people as we took pictures together and shared why we came to BlogHer and our passion for blogging. Their stories inspired and reminded me how beautiful, brilliant, creative, and diverse our BlogHer community is!

#DigitalSisterhood Wednesday: #DigitalSisterhoodat50 Lesson 6 VOICE

Happy #DigitalSisterhood Wednesday Digital Sisters!

VOICE is #DigitalSisterhoodat50 Lesson 6. I was reminded of the power of women’s voices online two times today. The first happened while reading reading a Medium blog written by the new White House Chief Digital Officer Jason Goldman about what he has learned from #socialcivics.

I was excited to see Goldman had included several women’s voices in his post. Three women are connected to me through the Digital Sisterhood Network (DSN): Janet Johnson, Patricia Patton, and yours truly. FYI DSN named Johnson and Patton as Digital Sisters of the Year. A few weeks ago, we used our blogs and digital presence to give voice to our #socialcivics ideas. Speaking up is something we can all do when we honor our voices.

This afternoon, I watched Lisa Stone, BlogHer co-founder, SheKnows Chief Community Officer, and Digital Sister of the Year, give voice to women’s issues while moderating the #ObamaTownHall with President Barack Obama. As I watched the event on WhiteHouse.gov, live tweeted, and read the tweets of other women, I witnessed firsthand what happens when women believe they have something to say — they give voice to their concerns with passion, encourage other women to speak up, and spark important conversations that can inform and influence society.

How are you using your voice?
