BlogHer 13, the world’s largest women’s blogging conference.

My focus for this year’s conference is to learn about lifestyle blogging and branding so  I can improve my Ananda@16thand U: Lifestylista in Love with DC blog and expand my new media business and the Digital Sisterhood Network. To that end, I am planning to attend the Style Mini-Conference track on July 26 (right after I complete my talk on social media leadership). Check out the Style Mini-Conference session descriptions below. They feature some of my favorite bloggers and virtual mentors like “Afrobella” Patrice Yursik, Christina Brown, and Stacy Morrison.

  • The List (and how to get on it): If there is one question we hear from bloggers covering this image- and access-conscious industry, it’s “How do I get on *the* list?”. We’re bringing publishing, PR and brand perspectives to the table to give you an inside look at how it works. BlogHer editor-in-chief (and longtime women’s magazine leader) Stacy Morrison moderates the insightful advice from Adrianna Guilliani from Devries Public Relations, Cristy Turner from Digital Brand Architects, and Genevieve Ascencio from Factory PR.

Before I attend the Style Mini Conference sessions, I plan to participate in “Justice Fergie” Stacey Ferguson’s Summer Brand-O-Rama, a FREE four-week email workshop that will provide critical tips on how to cultivate brand partnerships that begins on July 5. Click here to sign up.  My goal is to learn how to build brand partnerships that support my blogs and the Digital Sisterhood Network.

Stacey is the queen of branding and empire building in my book! She is one of my virtual and IRL “Empirista” mentors.

Happy Internet Geek Tuesday! 3/5

Happy Internet Geek Tuesday!

Guess what I am doing this month? I’m finally starting to blog about my lifestylista adventures in neighborhoods located in Washington, D.C. Click here to read my first post for 2013 on my Tumblr blog, Ananda@16thandU: Lifestylista in Love with DC.

I have included some information about my lifestyle blog below. Enjoy!

Why Did I Relaunch My Tumblr Blog?

For more than 20 years, I have been a resident of the historic U Street neighborhood in Washington, D.C. During this period of time, U Street has nurtured my expression and growth as an artist, author, coach, yoga teacher, and innerpreneur. While I was writing Digital Sisterhood: A Memoir of Fierce Living Online (2013), I had a chance to reflect on how much I adore D.C. neighborhoods and the roles they have played in my novel, Love’s Troubadours: Karma – Book One, and my creative memoir, That Which Awakens Me. That’s when I realized how much I wanted to express my passion for living in D.C. My passion turned into a full-blown blog idea after I attended Fashion Night Out DC in my Adams Morgan and U Street neighborhoods with my digital sister Brea Ellis, founder of What I Wore: tip to toe blog in September 2012.

What Will My Lifestyle Blog Feature?

My lifestyle blog will feature audio recordings, photos, reflections, stories, and videos that document my #eatshopplay adventures in D.C. neighborhoods including Adams Morgan, Capitol Hill, Cleveland Park, Columbia Heights, Dupont Circle, Friendship Heights, Logan Circle, Mount Pleasant, Petworth, Shaw, Tenleytown, and U Street. Some blog posts will discuss how I take a part of my DC neighborhoods with me when I travel to other cities. A few will include memories from my DC experiences over the past 20+ years.

What Is A Lifestylista?

A Lifestylista is a woman who lives her life as a work of art; expresses it through her passion for beauty, entertaining, fashion, food, home décor, personal style, and travel; and inspires others to live their lives as works of art.

How Often Will Blog Posts Be Published?

My blog posting schedule is organic! That means I will post when I have something fun to share!
