Blog conferences can be incredibly helpful in terms of networking and education, but not every blogger can afford or arrange to attend one, especially if it’s far from home. Overcoming these challenges was part of the inspiration for this summer’s new Lady Blogger Social Online Conference, organized by TheLadyBloggers.com.
The conference will be held entirely online from July 8-10. Attendees will get special access to the conference’s Ning site, where they can submit questions for speakers and network with other participants. The sessions themselves will air via a live webinar, but will also be recorded and transcribed to be made available to all attendees at a later date.
There are so many awesome blogging conference out there, but most people, women in particular, don’t have the resources or availability to make it to these conferences. We have so many commitments and so many things that need our attention, people who love blogging and want to learn more about blogging, miss out on this fun events! An online conference has the ability to still interact with attendees, listen in on great speakers, and gives you the ability to interact and ask all sorts of questions to everyone there.
The conference has fifteen speakers prepared to present, including Caitie Ramsburg, Brand Account Manager at BlogFrog, Holly Homer, founding partner of Business 2 Blogger, and Michele McGraw of the blog Scraps of My Geek Life.
In choosing the speakers, Cuevas said:
We were looking for a diverse group of [speakers] who came from different backgrounds, but were experts in their own fields. We chose people who had a large social media footprint and were just as passionate about reaching out to blogging/social media women as we were.
Sessions will cover a variety of topics, such as Branding Your Blog, Growing Your Readership, Creative Writing, Becoming a Travel Blogger, and more. The full agenda will be made available soon.
