PRNewser been told by many people that the BlogHer conference “isn’t just for women.” And, while we definitely believe that to be true, the pictures and reports from this past weekend’s conference in San Francisco, perhaps the largest gathering of women bloggers in the world, show the crowd to be mostly women.

Regardless, BlogHer is growing at a nice clip. The network counts 2,200 bloggers, up from 180 last year. They also recently announced a partnership with NBC Universal’s iVillage.com, which will deliver content to sites like BravoTV.com and Oxygen.com.

As CNET’s Stefanie Olsen notes, the big sponsors at BlogHer were not the usual tech show suspects such as Microsoft, Yahoo or Google, but instead companies including Chevrolet, Macy’s and Sesame Street.

“This is a hugely important audience for us,” said Ellen Lewis Gideon, vice president of corporate communications for Sesame Workshop, which ran numerous promotions at the show.
