Last Friday we held the first mini-conference for the MN Blogger Conference. There was a full house of local bloggers and social media professionals in attendance to hear speakers Becky Flansburg on networking and Josh Braaten on Google Analytics. Josh posted a recap of his session here: Google Analytics for Bloggers.

It was great to see a crowd of bloggers gather together again after our large conference last fall. We saw many of the same folks, but new faces as well.

A large group filled the CoCo space to learn about blogging.

There was a lot of buzz on twitter for at least 24 hours after the event, including blog posts by Joel Carlson and Griff Wigley. And tweets like these:

Thanks to all the attendees who donated diapers for The Diaper Drive. These donations will help lighten the load for local families struggling to get by.

Josh and Paul carried some of the donations.

Big thanks to my partner in crime Arik Hanson for planning the event with me, and special thanks to Judy Grundstrom for the extra help with logistics. A survey will be going out to attendees in the near future to get input on future events.

  1. I’ve only known you for a short time, Missy, but everything you touch seems to be marketing gold. It was such a pleasure presenting at the MN Blog Conference event. Everyone was engaged and excited to be there. What a great follow-up to last fall’s event!

    I look forward to following you on your new blog!

    • Thanks Josh! It’s been great connecting with you over the past several months. Your presentation at the mini – MN Blogger Conference was great ~ and you get major geek points for having your twitter handle on your laptop! Was most impressed that you snagged another potential speaking engagement on the same day. Way to go!
