Okay fellow pet bloggers, I need your help. I’ve got most things figured out now for my trip to BarkWorld. My passport is on its way, I know what I am going to do for cash, and I know where I will be sleeping. If I sleep at all. I might even have a costume picked out for Thursday’s Halloween blowout. And I am not a costume person.
Unfortunately, my biggest challenge is in deciding which sessions to attend. If only I could put little spy cameras up every where so I don’t miss a moment. Do you think I could get a sponsor for that? In the event I can’t find anyone in time, I should probably come up with a better plan.
Luckily, most of the major events and keynotes are during times where nothing else is going on, such as the important talk by the president of the ASPCA on using social media strategies to inspire communities. I am relieved I won’t have to make a difficult choice in that time slot.
However, there are many I know I won’t be able to decide on until the last minute. As an example, on Saturday afternoon there are three sessions at 1:45 pm. One is on blogging while broke – a great topic, one is being given by the vice president of the USDAA – a huge personal interest, and the third is on podcasting and vlogging – something I’ve considered getting into. How do I possibly choose between them?
This is where I solicit your advice. If you were going to attend a blogging conference, what topic would interest you the most? What do you think is absolutely essential for a blogger to learn? Or, if you have been to similar conferences in the past, from which sessions did you learn the most? Which subjects did you find the most helpful or worthwhile when putting the information into practice?
Since I will no doubt be sharing a lot of my experiences here, is there anything in particular you would like to read about?
