Authentic Blogging to sponsor Widgety Goodness prize
December 5, 2007 – Libby Davy – Print
We have been involved recently with helping create Widgety Goodness UK 07, Europe’s first Widget conference, in Brighton at the Corn Exchange tomorrow.
Anyone participating in the WGUK07 Social Network will now have a chance to give their blog a boost.
Authentic Blogging has sponsored the event with a coaching session for two bloggers captured in the feed into the network on the day.
For those that aren’t up with this stuff yet, it’s really quite neat. Backnetwork provides a platform for social networks to build in the lead up to a conference or event, on the day and for some months afterwards. Delegates join with speakers, sponsors, media and organisers to answer each other’s questions and help set the focus for the event. During and after, they chat, think and debrief to make even more sense of what’s going on and move things forward in their worlds.
We’ve been facilitating this space since its inception.
So Graeme and I thought it would be nice to give something to the community of Widgety folk by sponsoring the prize for “Most Indepth Blog Post on the Day”.
Delegates will have their laptops there and, believe it or not, be tapping away to share what’s happening for them. To document and reflect. To download, store and retain it all in their “external memory drives” ie. their blogs.
…and propping up the bar at the After Party later on.. and chewing each other’s ear’s off no doubt.
It’s going to be a great day.
Good on you Ivan, Emm, Zoe, Kris, all the sponsors and speakers and punters for bringing it together. Can’t wait to share more about the wonders of widgets.
