Shaw Plew and Noah Coffey really did a bang up job organizing BlogIndiana. I was able to attend day one, but it looks like I won’t be making day two. It was, frankly, a lot more fun than I had anticipated. I had figured the presentations might be a little dry, and maybe there were better ways to spend a Saturday. But, as it turns out, I really like blogging. And, with 90% of the population, if you talk about it, their eyes will cross and they’ll start avoiding you. But, here was a group of people with the same hobby I have. I underestimated how entertaining it is to just hang out with people who have a common interest. And, blogging being what it is, most of them were pretty articulate.
I sat in on presentations by Renee Wilmeth and Ruth Holladay, which were fun. I also got to meet Thomas Cook, Bil Browning, Josh Gillespie, Donno, Jill Long Thompson campaign assistant, Samantha MacDonald, Steve Dalton, Christopher Hedges, Justin Harter, and a number of others.
My phone doesn’t take very good pictures, but here is a grainy photo of the conference:
