Australian Blogging Conference delayed

February 2, 2007 — 3 Comments

I was literally going to try and book for frequent flyer flgihts today, then got this from Peter Black:

Unfortunately due to a last minute and unexpected problem with sponsorship, QUT has decided to postpone the Australian Blogging Conference until later in the year. We were faced with the option of running the conference with a registration fee or postponing it, and we have chosen to stick with our original vision and ethos and hold the conference without a registration fee later in 2007.

At this stage we are now planning to hold the conference in August this year. I will advise of the exact date as soon as it has been finalised.

August in Brisbane is plesant…certainly a lot warmer than Bunbury.

    […] In general I think it is a fair comment that we’ve lagged behind other countries when it comes to personal publishing. However, in the last couple of months Meg and Craig started seperate Top 100 lists, two local Gawker blogs started, the much talked about blogging conference looks like it will go ahead in August, Crikey has been doing a special article series in recent weeks looking at the major newspaper blogs, Weblogger Meetup Groups in Sydney and Melbourne seem to be much more active and now Google launches their first ever local blog here in Australia. These are pretty significant events that I think are reflective of a greater acceptance of blogging in our fine country. […]
