Conference Blogging

Already, your intrepid blog editor is thinking about how to blog the 2008 Midwest Chapter Annual Conference just up the way in Troy, Michigan. The conference wiki has a Blogging @ Midwest page where you can list yourself if you will be blogging from the conference. And tag your posts and photos Midwest08. One thing that I really enjoyed last year was sharing Flickr photos.

I’ve picked up these conference blogging tips since the Omaha meeting. And don’t miss this tongue-in-cheek advice at A Librarian’s Guide to Etiquette. Liveblogging doesn’t really work for me. If I’m frantically blogging, I find that I’m not really able to “digest” the information. So I’m hoping that someone else might want to try at this year’s conference. How about you?
That conference wiki looks interesting! It will be a great way to share all kinds of information. Looking for a roommate? Shared transportation? Want to know who will be attending which functions? How to get there? Where to EAT?
Want to keep up with all this information? Use your feed reader! Since the conference website main page is in blog format, you will be able to subscribe to find out the latest. There is even a feed for wiki updates! Already in my Bloglines feeds!
