Blog Community Jam Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Ask any veteran blogger what this ‘blogging thing’ comes down to and, invariably, their answer will be: COMMUNITY.  The relationship aspect of blogging has become such an integral part of the experience that hundreds of blog communities have popped up over the past several years.  The goal of the first-ever Blog Community Jam Session @ Blogalicious is to bring the leaders of several of the top blogging communities together for a candid, in-depth discussion of our craft.  An impressive lineup of participants will lead the conversation that will contemplate questions like:


  • How has monetization changed blogging?
  • What does the future hold for bloggers?
  • Have we hit a ceiling when it comes to generating revenue from brand-blogger relationships?
  • What is a blogger’s role in the social and political conversation?
  • Is it time to modify our strategies?
  • And more!


Bring your voices, your questions and your community to Blogalicious Weekend on Friday, September 28th at 2pm.  This forum is for us!
