Blog University

Another promising-looking event… New Communications Forum, aka “Blog University”, is being held January 26-27 in Napa, California, and February 7-8 in Paris, France. Workshops and sessions include:
– Corporate Blogging: Getting Started
– How To Pitch Bloggers
– Writing for Blogs
– Forming Communities Online: Group & Conference Blogging & Wikis
– Using Blogs to Enhance Employee Communications
РThe Blog’s New Role in Crisis Communications
– Blog Publicity & Measuring Success/Tracking

Unlike BloggerCon, which is targeted more at the individual blogger and on politics, journalism, and academia, this event is definitely targeted at a more corporate audience, with an emphasis on blogs as knowledge management tools and PR vehicles.
