Which Blogging Conference Would You Go To?
If you could choose from all the blogging conferences held around the world, which one would you most want to go to?
Don’t know which ones there are?
Coming soon, I’ll be reporting on blogging and blog-related conferences currently scheduled for next year. I mention a lot of WordPress meeting and conferences in my weekly WordPress Wednesday News reports, but I want to reach beyond WordPress to blogging conferences worldwide.
If you have a favorite blogging conference, please let me know so I can add it to the list. Know of blog-related meetups and groups in your area? Tell me here or contact me at: email@example.com.
I need links to the main site that hosts the event, as well as a description and dates, if available, for the events.
I’d also like to know why you recommend this event, and if you attended, what you got out of it.
If you are part of the group that produces blogging events, or know of people who are involved, I’m looking for you to help me create this big list of blog conferences.
If you haven’t attended a blog conference, would you? What do you expect to get out of such a meeting of bloggers or representatives of the blogging industry?
The author of Lorelle on WordPress and the fast-selling book, Blogging Tips: What Bloggers Won't Tell You About Blogging, as well as several other blogs, Lorelle VanFossen has been blogging for over 15 years, covering blogging, WordPress, travel, nature and travel photography, web design, web theory and development extensively as web technologies developed.
BlogHer, of course.
Best conference of any kind, ever.
ICWSM: International Conference on Weblogs and Social Media.
March 31-April 2, 2008. Hilton Seattle Downtown, Seattle, Washington, U.S.A.
Why? Tons of interesting people such as David Sifry and Brad Fitzpatrick. I actually wanted to submit a paper but the deadline clashed with other deadlines. If i can afford a ticket I would really like to attend. Or next year, with a paper :)
3-4 March 2008, Cork, Ireland.
Why? It’s one of the few big blog/social software conferences in Europe. Again, it’s the precious matter of time and money.
October 16-17 2008. In addition, BlogHer Reach is being held in the same venue on October 18, 2008.
My god! I wouldn’t go to any of them! Who would wanna’ spend any time whatsoever in a room full of people like me?
