Here’s some blogging events taking place in 2012 – have you got one to add? Share it with us by clicking here.
BlogCamp provides free one-day workshops and conferences for independent UK bloggers, and is run by journalist and blogger Sally Whittle and the team behind the Tots100, the UK’s largest community of active parent bloggers. Our events happen all over the UK, throughout the year, and in 2012 we will be holding our first ever national event, BlogCampUK, in Birmingham.
BlogCamp is based on four simple ideas:
Bloggers don’t all live in London. We hold BlogCamp events all over the UK, so you don’t have to trek to London to spend a day eating cake, and talking about blogging. Although, if you do live in London, we hold events there, too.
Bloggers are often unpaid. Blogging is a brilliant hobby but most bloggers don’t have the money to pay for expensive event tickets. Thanks to the support of some fantastic sponsors, BlogCamp events are completely free of charge to independent bloggers, so you’ll never have to worry about finding the money for a BlogCamp ticket.
Everyone loves practical advice. We choose our speakers very carefully at BlogCamp. We work with people who are doing amazing things – but we make sure they can tell you how to do those things, too. No matter how long you’ve been blogging, we aim to create events that will inspire and empower you to go home and make changes to the way you blog.
You’re the experts. At BlogCamp we believe the real experts in blogging aren’t professionals or academics – it’s people like you, who blog every day. Our events are built around discussion, and encouraging everyone to share their opinions and experiences. We have a policy of keeping our events small and friendly so everyone can get involved. It also means we all get more cake.
This one-day event will bring together the most influential bloggers and speakers from all corners of the blogosphere to network, inspire, share and learn.
There will be brands – brands that interest all women and not just parents and there will be content – lots of it. In fact there will be so much on offer that you will question how we managed to fit it all in.
We’ve taken all of the feedback from previous blogger events we’ve been involved with and we can promise that Cybher 2012 will be more memorable in every single way.
This 2-day experience is organised around a theme of dynamic collaboration, with workshops, casual meet-ups, roundtable discussions and parties. It’s spread over a Friday afternoon and Saturday so there’s plenty of time to chat and relax amid the activities and excitement.
Sessions will focus on blogging skills – with beginning and advanced tracks – and content-oriented sessions on specialty subjects like food blogging and parenting culture. Our “discussion den” will delve into burning issues where you can expect a lot of opinions, respectful disagreements and perhaps some answers to what’s been on your mind.
On the Friday evening we’ll be celebrating the best of brilliant blogging with the annual Brilliance in Blogging Awards. On Saturday, we cap off the event with bloggers sharing some of the best posts of the year.
