Belmont, CA (PRWEB) March 12, 2014
BlogHer, Inc., the premium cross-platform media network and publisher for women, today announced that Arianna Huffington will be a keynote speaker at the 10th Annual BlogHer Conference, the largest event for bloggers and social media influencers in the nation.
Arianna Huffington is the chair, president, and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, a nationally syndicated columnist, and author of fourteen books, including the upcoming Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder, to be published by Crown in March 2014.
Arianna launched The Huffington Post in May 2005, and the site quickly became one of the most widely read and frequently cited media outlets on the Internet. The next year, Arianna keynoted BlogHer’s second annual conference, also held in Silicon Valley. In 2006, and again in 2011, she was named to the Time 100, Time Magazine's list of the world’s 100 most influential people. In 2012, the Huffington Post won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. In 2013, she was named to the Forbes Most Powerful Women list.
“BlogHer and The Huffington Post share a common goal -- taking the conversations found at water coolers and around dinner tables and opening them up and bringing them online, and then offline again at a great conference like this,” said Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-In-Chief of the Huffington Post Media Group. “So I’m delighted to be joining the BlogHer conference to open up the conversation specifically on how we can redefine success beyond money and power to include well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving -- a need that’s universal, but especially acute for those of us in the hyper-connected, 24/7 world of digital media.”
“Lisa Jory, and I are proud to welcome Arianna back to keynote another BlogHer Conference this summer and share her vision of achieving well-being in our increasingly always-on culture,” said Elisa Camahort Page, Co-founder and COO of BlogHer, Inc. “We know her message—that women can live hyper-connected, yet balanced, lives, and thrive—is of special relevance to BlogHer’s community of online influencers.”
