I went to the BlogHer Conference last weekend. I’ve shared my highlight snapshots and takeaways here during the last few days, but I’ve got one more thing to share with you! Read on to find out how you can read on…
|#BlogHer14 “sponsor selfie”–#ReadandRelax with #NextIssue
BlogHer’14 sponsor Next Issue provides unlimited access to over 100 magazine titles with its app (for iOS, Android, and Windows), and they have offered me gift codes for 3-month Unlimited Premium subscriptions to share with THREE readers of The 3 R’s Blog. I almost never do giveaways here, but they’ve made it so easy I can’t resist, and I really hope you’ll check this one out!
Next Issue calls itself “your personalized digital magazine newsstand” and offers both current and back issues of over 130 monthly and weekly magazines, as well as bonus features not available in print editions. Check out the features and the FAQs, and if you’re interested, submit the Google form with your info and the name of your favorite magazine to enter the giveaway! (One entry per person, please…but if you win, you can share your Next Issue account across up to 5 devices!)
I’ll choose THREE winners at random on Sunday, August 10. Winners will have until December 31, 2014 to redeem the gift codes for their three-month trial subscriptions.
DISCLOSURES AND DETAILS:
Next Issue‘s app for iOS, Android, and Windows is free. Continued access to magazines in the app after the three-month trial period will require a paid subscription to Next Issue.
I signed up for a three-month free trial subscription to Next Issue at BlogHer’14. As a thank-you, Next Issue has provided me with three giveaway codes for the same subscription to share with readers of The 3 R’s Blog. They have not dictated rules or conditions for the conduct of the giveaway, and I am receiving no compensation for offering it. The ONLY way to enter the giveaway is to complete and submit the Google Form embedded in this post. One entry per person, please.
Until this past weekend, my last BlogHer Conference was 2010’s, in New York City. There are various reasons why I hadn’t returned since then, but they boil down to the conference getting bigger as my connections within its various sub-spheres became fewer. While my interest was piqued by the announcement that ticket sales for 2014’s tenth-anniversary event would be capped at 2500 and that it would be held just 300 miles away in San Jose, I didn’t decide to […]
I was at a big convention-type gathering this past weekend…and it wasn’t San Diego Comic-Con. I attended my third BlogHer Conference, after a three-year absence. I’m doing a Storified recap of the experience, in the tradition of my BEA Highlight Reel, but I’m breaking it into two blog posts so it won’t take up quite as much space in your eyeballs, or your feed readers. (Part 1 posted yesterday.) BlogHer14, The Personal Highlight Reel Recapping my third (and probably last) […]

When I started thinking about Jenna‘s latest BlogHer #Selfiebration question, “What Does Your Blogging Family Tree Look Like?”, I was stumped. I’ve been blogging for nearly seven and a half years, and the paths I once shared with many bloggers have diverged, or dead-ended for one reason or another, along the way. Then I realized that one thing about having blogged for so long is that at one time or another, I’ve probably mentioned some of those who helped […]
The most recent prompt for BlogHer’s 10th-anniversary “Selfiebration” asks “Where were you 10 years ago?” My response also ties into my Wordless Wednesday group’s theme for this week’s link-up, “Melancholy.” I did not like where I was ten years ago. I didn’t like who I was ten years ago. Reflecting on those times as I wrote this brought some of that misery back so clearly that I had to stop, and I wasn’t sure I’d come back and finish it. The fact […]
There’s something in my spam e-mail almost every day from one online dating site or another. I have no interest in or need for dating sites at this point in my life…but there was a time when I did, about seven years ago. Spam doesn’t work for me, but online dating–via eHarmony–did. It was nearly three years after my divorce from my first husband before I was ready to try dating again. Those three years […]
I was honestly a bit surprised when my application to join the 2011 Faith and Fiction Roundtable was accepted. After all, Amy has heard me call myself a heathen. But she’s also heard me – sometimes, still – call myself a Catholic, although it’s been a while since I’ve been active in the Church where I was raised. However, I’ve found that you can take the girl out of the Church but you can’t take […]
This post was inspired by BlogHer.com‘s year-long “Own Your Beauty” initiative and its January theme, “Adventure.” And sorry to disappoint those of you who would marvel at my speedy recovery, but it was written prior to my surgery last Friday. If I were still married to my first husband, we would have celebrated our twenty-seventh wedding anniversary on January 7. (Hopefully, “celebrated” would have been the right word.) We would have been married to each […]
Days that don’t follow the normal routine – get up, go to work, come home – seem to exist in a different time stream, pulled out of the calendar and somehow blown away somewhere. The “normal” days can become compressed together, and suddenly it’s later than I thought – time has certainly flown, but there seem to be holes in it. The last few months have had more than their share of out-of-the-norm days, and […]
Just a few weeks ago – while we were at Comic-Con, actually, two weekends before BlogHer’10 – I told Tall Paul that after attending for two years running, I wasn’t sure about going to BlogHer next year. We had already decided we wanted to go to Comic-Con again (we’re anxiously waiting for online registration to open, and we really want the four-day passes this time!). Sure, the event is crazy and crowded, but it’s just […]
I’ve been to New York City twice this summer, and I’ve yet to get to the Strand Bookstore! It was actually on the list of things Melissa and I wanted to do when we were in the City for BlogHer’10 last weekend, but between a pretty full conference agenda and my inability to follow the walking directions I got from Google Maps, it didn’t happen. But don’t feel too sorry for me – I came […]
I’ll warn you again, in case you’ve forgotten – my BlogHer’10 experiences will, once again, be the subject of several posts. I’ve already talked about a couple of sessions in detail. This time, I’m sharing some of my more general impressions in the ever-popular “bullet points” format. But sadly, I don’t have pictures this year, because I couldn’t bring my “good” camera with me – it’s not so good right now, and I just sent […]
I’ll warn you now – my BlogHer’10 experiences will, once again, be the subject of several posts. There are a couple of sessions I’d like to talk about in detail in addition to sharing my more general impressions. The first session I attended at BlogHer’10 was on that topic so dear to the heart of any review blogger: “The FTC Guidelines: After a Year, Has Anything Changed?” (And yes, although you may not review anything […]
I’ll warn you now – my BlogHer’10 experiences will, once again, be the subject of several posts. There are a couple of sessions I’d like to talk about in detail in addition to sharing my more general impressions. It’s hard to process everything that goes on in a conference session when you’re one of its presenters, and the time goes by a lot faster. Fortunately, my BlogHer’10 panel, “The Evolving Publishing Ecosystem,” was liveblogged, so […]
