March 27 Update:
1. Calling all Indiana Bloggers…
BlogIN (un)conference registration is now open
Anyone interested in learning more about how to blog, why to blog and meet other bloggers should attend Smaller Indiana’s BlogIN on April 26, 2008. Bloggers from around the state will share best practices, tips, tools, case studies, and strategies for successful blogging. Whether you are an experienced blogger or a blogging beginner, join us for an afternoon as we explore blogging as a tool to build community, culture and commerce in Indiana.
Sponsored by Smaller Indiana, and hosted at the IUPUI School of Informatics, BlogIN 2008, a Blogging “Unconference”, will be held Saturday, April 26 from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. We will begin with presentations from some of Indiana’s own “rock star” bloggers. These experienced bloggers will share how they blog, why they blog and what blogging has done for them personally and professionally. After keynote presentations we will move into the (un)conference portion of the program.
What’s an Unconference?
Unlike a typical conference where the agenda is set-in-stone prior to the event, at an unconference the audience gets to set some of the agenda. Prior to the event we will allow attendees to submit ideas for things they want to learn, or things they can volunteer to teach. We will organize all these ideas into a schedule of sessions, and attendees will be able to choose the sessions that best fit their needs.
How to get involved
Please complete the registration process
to reserve your spot in the Blog IN. As part of the registration process you will be asked if you are interested in leading a session. Please share your thoughts.
