Networking + Learning + Fun = Conference!
This weekend one of the main themes in my twitter account was BlogWorld Expo 2008. I enjoyed all the information that was shared by BlogWorld attendees, via Twitter and of course on the many blog entries that have already been posted – and I’m sure there will be many more this week! My faves so far:
- All the coverage from Sparkplugging!
- This from Freelance Writing Jobs
- Missy Ward’s post incl the joys of BWE on crutches
- Rick Moran from Pajamas Media has a really detailed discussion on the changes in blogging, based on his experiences from BWE
I have only been seriously blogging since this summer, so I wasn’t aware of how exciting this conference would be – I sure hope to attend BWE 2009 though!
On the subject of conferences, I really believe they are a great way to do some in person networking, as well of course as learn some great information during actual sessions. What do you think are THE conferences to attend during the year? Do you prefer regional ones or ones like Blogworld that attract attendees and speakers from all over the world? Do you stick to your niche only or mix it up a little?
I think ideally I’d attend a couple of big conferences a year – one for virtual assistants maybe, or something with a legal focus, plus something like BlogWorld or BlogHer. I also need to get out and do some networking locally, and fortunately that is easily affordable!!
