BlogathonATX is my place, full of my people, sharing tacos and tips on growing online communities. I laugh harder and learn more in this one day than almost any other all year… —Jenny Magic, Principal/ VP of Content Strategy, Sitegoals
Since making its debut onto Austin’s social media scene, #BlogathonATX® has taken the city by storm. It all started with a tweet in the summer of 2010 and has grown into the hottest ticket in town for both established and aspiring bloggers, writers and content creators. At #BlogathonATX, you’ll spend the day learning, creating, socializing and eating and leave with a tribe of friends and colleagues. Make note of this year’s speakers, topics and schedule.
- In the Tech Room you can get help doing anything from setting up your blog for the first time to tweaking your CSS.
- Back by popular demand, the Room for Improvement is hosted by Julie Gomoll. Sign up for your 15 minute time slot to talk site architecture and design. It’s fine to just sit and listen in too. You can learn a lot this way!
- Then there’s the food. You really have to see (and taste) it to believe it. The folks at BlogathonATX understand that blogging takes energy, and we take that seriously. Austin’s community of restaurants and other small businesses allows us to make BlogathonATX the best tasting event in town! As everyone knows, the heart of a home is in the kitchen, and if BlogathonATX is your home for the day, the food area is its heart. Bloggers are a friendly, funny crew, and the food area is a great place to take a break and make new connections with interesting people from all over central Texas and beyond.
Finally, should you decide to add some actual blogging time into your day, you can do this pretty much anywhere, although we highly recommend bringing headphones if you prefer to focus. BlogathonATX isn’t what you’d call a quiet event.
