We’d like to extend a big thank you to all of you who attended the 2nd Minnesota Blogger Conference last September. There was a packed house of attendees and a solid group of speakers. Months later we are still hearing great things from attendees on things they’ve learned and connections they’ve made.
Lately we’ve been getting a number of inquiries from bloggers and potential sponsors/speakers on plans for 2012, so we thought we’d take a moment to address some of these questions. We don’t have official plans at this point to host another conference this year, however we are continuing to discuss it regularly and hope to have a decision within the next few months. Our decision is really pending a few things:
- appetite from the local blogging community for another conference
- interest and funding from potential sponsors to make an event possible
- reliable and willing volunteers to serve on the planning team and work
Stay tuned and we’ll be sure to clue you in when we have something firm to report. If you’d like to get more involved or are connected to an organization who is interested in sponsoring the event this year in a significant way (and we aren’t talking product samples, yo), please give us a holler.
