Hundreds of women gathered in Silicon Valley on Friday for the second annual BlogHer conference, which is offering sessions on building blogs, driving traffic, and attracting advertisers; and keynote speeches from some of the most successful women bloggers, such as Arianna Huffington, founder of the Huffington Post.
The sold-out conference, which has attracted more than double the 300 attendees of last year's gathering, is being held in San Jose, Calif. The theme is "How is your blog changing your world?"
