NowPublic at BlogHer 2007 in Chicago

I'm blogging from Chicago's Navy Pier this morning from BlogHer 2007, a huge blogging conference sponsored by BlogHer, Google, AOL, Dove and GM. There are about 700 women attending this 3rd annual event. The introductions just took place where a survey was announced . BlogHer created the BlogHer Act last year, where they surveyed women bloggers to see what issues or topics they wanted to focus on this year and what issues were pertinent for the 2008 U.S. elections. In collaboration with BlogHer Act Canada, the #1 topic women cared about or wanted to address this year was health care and the state of world health care. The environment, Iraq and homelessness, poverty and hunger were also issues women bloggers wanted to address in more detail this year.
