Are you joining us at BlogCamp in London on September 13th?
It’s going to be one of our biggest events yet, with over 120 bloggers descending on Google Campus to spend the day swapping blogging tips and meeting up with blogging friends old and new. We’ve worked hard to find some great speakers for the event, and we hope you’ll be energised, inspired and entertained by BlogCamp. There’s a full list of all the blogs attending on our Eventbrite page.
The tickets to the event were all booked in just ONE HOUR but there is a waiting list – sign up here if you’d like to join. And if you can no longer use your ticket, please let us know so we can pass it on to someone on the wait list.
So, what’s going to be happening?
This BlogCamp is being supported by our lovely friends at Cross Pens, who will be at BlogCamp all day, talking to bloggers about their fantastic new range of Cross Click range of pens. Cross understands that some of our biggest thoughts and ideas often start as simple doodles, notes, and sketches; that putting pen to paper can give life to great ideas, and that an uninterrupted flow, aided by a smooth writing experience, can deliver the beginnings of something inspirational. So on the day, the Cross team will be presenting you all with a very special creative challenge – more details soon!
Since we’ll be at Google Campus, it made sense to invite some of the guys from Google to join us at BlogCamp. The day will kick off with a user-friendly introduction to Google+, so if you’ve ever wondered just how to make the most of Google’s new social network, then this session is for you.
After the presentation, the team from Google will be hanging around to answer all your Google related questions – and if you bring your laptop or iPad with you, the team will be happy to give you hands-on tutorials.
Next up, we’ll be inviting the fabulous Stu Heritage to talk about his blogging experience. Stu set up his own showbiz blog before selling up, and becoming an independent blogger and Guardian contributor. He’ll be chatting about the fun to be had in expressing strong opinions online – and how to cope when people are mean to you.
We’re delighted to announce that StumbleUpon will also be attending BlogCamp, and providing bloggers with great practical tips on using StumbleUpon to build a blog audience – and find new content. There will be tips on setting up your account, sharing content, using short-cuts and much more – and plenty of opportunities to ask questions.
Ever fancied writing a book? Blogger and author Keris Stainton will be presenting at BlogCamp, talking about her experience of securing a book deal, and using a blog to promote her work. Keris is one of the UK’s top authors of YA fiction, and will be happy to answer questions from any aspiring authors in attendance.
As usual there will be loads of time for chatting, drinking coffee and eating the odd slice of cake – BlogCamp is as much about who you meet as what you hear. We’re really looking forward to our second London BlogCamp and can’t wait to see you there!
