– { What’s it all about? }

This is a compensated review by BlogHer.

If you’ve visited my blog, The Cottage Home (or many other blogs), I’m sure you’ve noticed the advertising in my side-bar.  I am part of the BlogHer Publishing Network and I thought I would take a minute to tell you a little bit more about

Aside from being a wonderful publishing network, is the web’s leading guide to the hottest news and trends among women in social media.  There are 75 contributing editors posting about a variety of different topics such as food, family, life and many more, all geared toward women’s interests.  My favorite area of interest is the Home and Garden section.  There are topics such as DIY, home decor, gardening and homemaking.

In addition to being a great source for information and learning, has many different communities dedicated to different areas of interests.  Within these groups women can connect to one another and start a dialogue about things they have in common. is also a great way to promote your blog.  There are 19,000 blogs listed in the BlogHer blog directory.  Listing your blog is free – have you listed your blog?  If not, I highly recommend you put your name out there.  Not a blogger?  This is a great place to discover new blogs covering different topics that you may find of interest.

If you have a free moment this week, head on over to and poke around – it’s a really fun and interesting site for women.  I know you will find some content that will definitely peek your interest!  Also, this week, is offering a chance to win a full conference pass to BlogHer Food 2011 in Atlanta, GA.  To enter to win, click the link below…….
