PA Live! Blog of the Week: NEPA BlogCon

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on the WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is NEPA BlogCon (http://nepablogcon.com/).

A few months ago a group of local bloggers came together with an idea: They wanted to create a blogging convention for Northeastern Pennsylvania. Not just a variation on the NEPA Blog Fest (coming up on September 21), which is an informal gathering of local bloggers that also serves as a politician/blogger mixer.  The NEPA BlogCon, scheduled for Saturday, September 29 at Luzerne County Community College in Nanticoke, would be a full-fledged convention, with presentations and featured speakers and educational sessions, all focused on expanding and improving the skills of bloggers throughout Northeastern Pennsylvania.

The four bloggers behind the NEPA BlogCon are collectively known as the "Fearsome Foursome": Michelle Hryvnak Davies (the co-administrator of NEPA Blogs who also has a personal blog here and posts photos of sunrises here) , Karla Porter (who has a professional blog here and a personal blog here) , Leslie Stewart (of Darling Stewie fame!), and Mandy Boyle (writer, marketer, and SEO team leader at Solid Cactus, who blogs here.) With that much blogging power behind it, naturally the NEPA BlogCon needed to have a blog of its own! The NEPA BlogCon blog disseminates information, provides updates, and keeps a record of everything that goes into making a regional blogging convention.

The NEPA BlogCon blog is more than just this: it's also a vital resource for bloggers, asking questions, sharing advice, and providing insight into the blogging experiences of the members of the Fearsome Foursome. Expect the level of information to go way up as the date of the NEPA BlogCon approaches. And if you haven't already, make plans to attend!

The first NEPA BlogCon will take place on Saturday, September 29 from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at Luzerne County Community College, Campus Building 7 in Nanticoke, PA. For more information and to buy tickets, please visit here.
