Welcome! On behalf of the entire community and my co-founders Elisa Camahort, Jory Des Jardins, welcome to BlogHer.com. As BlogHer Inc.'s co-founder and CEO from 2005-2014, I worked across our community of bloggers and sponsors to create opportunities for women who blog to gain additional community, exposure, education and economic empowerment. In that time, our team grew an idea for a grassroots conference into a leading start-up with $30MM in annual revenues and a proprietary technology platform. In 2014, we merged BlogHer with SheKnows, creating the #1 women's lifestyle digital media company with 80+ million monthly visitors and 160+ million social followers.
Before I became I blogger, I was an entrepreneur, media strategist and a journalist. I left CNN for WebTV in 1997 and never looked back. I've written for The New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Oakland Tribune, and The Huffington Post. I've launched blog networks and interactive programming for many national brands, including Hearst and Rodale magazines, E! Television/Online, HBO's Sex and the City, Knight Ridder Digital, American Lawyer Media and Glam Media. I regularly speak about why women are the power users of digital media, as well as the extraordinary citizen journalism many women and men commit online every day.
I'm a working mother who was a single parent for six years until I met Christopher Carfi (@ccarfi on Twitter). Now our Brady Bunch has three kids, two dogs and I still believe balance is baloney. Do what you love, the laundry is secondary. I look forward to meeting you around this site! You can also find me on Twitter at @lisastone and on LinkedIn at linkedin.com/in/lisastonew00t.
