For awhile I’ve hinted at working on a project with Sarah, and so with a little bit of shy trepidation, I’d like to tell you all about Bloggeration. For a while now I’ve found that most events I went to, new bloggers would ask me for advice or questions in general about blogging- in fact, Sarah found this to be true as well- and that’s where Bloggeration grew from. We wanted to create a real workshop to teach new (or existing!) bloggers the things we were always being asked- how do we blog full time? What platform did we use and why? How do you work with brands? What’s a media pack? After finding a space to hold the workshop, and a couple of guest speakers who wanted to participate, we went full steam ahead to create Bloggeration.
We decided on two workshops- a London one at the end of January and another in Glasgow in late February. Why Glasgow? Well, we knew from Twitter chats that a lot of bloggers felt that everything took place in London. So we’re aiming to bring the workshop to as many places around the UK as we can; and Glasgow felt like a good choice to start with.
Our workshops are small- just six people per workshop- and we’re keeping it casual. You can wear what you like. You can wear a onesie if thats what you felt like wearing that day. We’ll give you some croissants in the morning, caffeine throughout the day, and the chance to ask anything and everything you’ve ever wanted to know. We’ve got guest speakers too, a booklet with all the topics we’ve covered from the day AND a 20% discount from Pipdig to pimp out your new blog.
Tickets for the London workshop are available via Eventbrite, and on the Bloggeration website. It’s £199 for the weekend, but there’s an option to pay in installments. I’m really excited for this workshop; I find that being around other bloggers and talking shop is great inspiration and a small ‘classroom’ is perfect for bouncing ideas off one another. So have a peek at the website…I hope you like it!
