Let's face it, attending women's blogging conferences is expensive especially if you have airfare and hotel expenses you have to pay for. With that in mind, I wanted to share leads that I find for sponsors and scholarships for BlogHer '12 in New York City, August 3-4, 2012 as I uncover them. Be sure to follow MommyBlogExpert on Twitter, Facebook and or subscribe so you'll be alerted when new resources are added to this list.
