For those of you in the Indianapolis area who have been looking for a local blogging focused conference, be sure to check out Blog Indiana 2008.
Local bloggers from across Indiana will gather at the IUPUI Campus Center on August 16-17th, 2008, for Blog Indiana 2008, a 2-day blogging and social media conference that aims to promote education, innovation and collaboration among Indiana’s fast-growing blogging community. The conference is sponsored by the IU School of Informatics.
Blog Indiana 2008 is a 2-day conference for both experienced and new bloggers alike. Sessions will include topics such as blogging for beginners, using blogs in your business, monetizing your blog, political blogging and more advanced topics. In the past, most blogging and technology-related conferences have either been too expensive or too far out-of-state. Blog Indiana 2008 seeks to bring a low-cost, high-value conference to Hoosier bloggers.
From looking over the sessions, this should be a decent introductory crash course for anyone who is curious as to what blogging is all about and/or anyone who wants to dig in and learn a little more about blogging. At $49.00 for both days that is a deal as far as conferences go. Seating is limited to 200 people so register soon if you’re interested.
(We probably won’t make it to this one but would love to hear any attendees thoughts afterwords.)
