Going to this conference was very much like going to a high school reunion to me.
I hadn’t seen these people in years (I mean EVER!… aside from a 2×2 square headshot on the websites of some), yet we had this one unique thing in common: Blogging.
The craziest thing is the fact that I felt like I had to go on crash diet to lose 20 lbs. before spending an evening with these people!
Of course, I didn’t. And of course, I should have. (…especially after seeing myself in the background of everyone else’s photos that have been posted about the Conference all over the Internet!)
Still, I must say, that the conference was a blast, and we are honored to be included in this circle of prestigious locals and nationally-recognized Bloggers.
The Future Of Blogging
More than ever it is evident that, as a group, Bloggers are actively changing the social structure of towns across America, and Internet media as a whole.
It’s true. You would not BELIEVE the impact that Bloggers have on their local communities via their words typed daily and their actions lived nightly.
And many Bloggers, who really have their act together, are taking this whole Blogging thing very seriously and using their “power of influence” to affect change in how the news is reported on a day-to-day basis.
Done right, this group has the power to make a HUGE impact on the direction that “mainstream media” is headed! (…you mark my words)
