About the Header Image: Wednesday, March 28, 2012

The Spring 2012 edition of Blog Fest is coming up this Friday, March 30, so I thought it would be fitting to create a header image from a previous Blog Fest. This was from September 2010, the second-ever Blog Fest.

People who don't know have a lot of odd ideas about Blog Fest. Like that it's just a room filled with people hunched over laptops, blogging away. (Don't be silly; people are hunched over smartphones, blogging with their thumbs.) Or that it's a stuffy, boring political event. Neither image is true. It's closer to think of it as a big cocktail party, with lots of people discussing lots of things all at once. Over there is  a group talking politics, while over here are people making plans for upcoming blogging events, and at the bar are people discussing the news of the day. Blog Fest is what you make of it, and the character of the event really depends on who shows up.

And who should show up? You, of course! Admission is free. Please join us!
