This past weekend, over 300 local bloggers joined us for the 6th annual MN Blogger Conference. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, with unseasonably awesome temps rising into the 60s and plenty of sunshine.
Thanks to our amazing sponsors and volunteers, we were able to put together a conference focused on education, networking, and community building. Special thanks are in order for St. Catherine University’s School of Business & Professional Studies for hosting us on their beautiful campus. We’d also like to thank the fine folks that run Sucuri for flying out to participate as a conference sponsor, with extra thanks to Tony for taking the stage as a speaker and sharing valuable information on website security.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t thank our other sponsors, too. Verizon, MN Beef Council, & MN Blogger Bash all had tables at MNBlogCon. If you didn’t get the chance to stop by and say hi to them, feel free to reach out & introduce yourself via social media.
Speaking of social media, we have a handy Twitter list to help you stay connected with all of our speakers & sponsors. On that list, you’ll also find the sponsors that didn’t have a table at the event, including Deluxe, AreaVoices, Minneapolis Northwest Tourism, Clockwork, Studio McCutch (our official event photographer), ASAP, and other in-kind sponsors & event partners listed on our Sponsor Page.
We want to give a special shoutout to Sara Fleetham, our kick-ass volunteer coordinator, along with our entire volunteer staff that kept the conference running smoothly all day.
Thank you to our speakers, and thank you to our attendees. Your energy fuels this event and makes our community stronger through shared knowledge & ideas.
We’ll be posting more information soon, including links to speaker slide decks and recap posts written by attendees. Until then, you can check out the article Julio Ojeda-Zapata published about the event for the Pioneer Press.
