About this project

Tribal Blogs, Professional Blog Network is gearing up for its very first blog conference June 24 – 25, 2011 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Bloomington, Minnesota.  Tribal Blogs is made up of writers – humor writers, more often than not – who don’t necessarily fit into a particular niche. Founded on the philosophy "It takes a village to raise a blog", writers connect, network, share information, ask and answer questions, and offer support to other bloggers. A nearly even balance of men and women members provides well-rounded viewpoints, experiences and insights. Tribal Blogs is open to any type of writer, and non-members are encouraged to participate in the conference.

The conference is focusing on helping writers promote themselves through a blog and helping bloggers go from blog to book. Experienced, knowledgeable speakers have already been lined up, and will present tangible and detailed information on the subjects that matter to writers and bloggers.

Topics will include:

·         Self-publishing

·         Freelance writing

·         Finding an audience

·         Search Engine Optimization

·         Branding

·         Marketing

·         Social Networking

Some of the special guest speakers include representatives from Beaver's Pond Press, Hillcrest Media, Margaret Andrews, freelance writer and author of Nanny Goats In Panties, Kathy Frederick, author of The Junk Drawer, and Jen Emmert of the Prior Fat Girl blog.

While conference fees will be covering a large portion of the costs, our goal is to provide an affordable learning experience to as many writers as possible. This means not all the costs are being covered by registration. Our objective is to fulfill the remaining cost obligations, as well as sponsor several deserving, struggling writers. We've set the funding limit low because this is an all or nothing funding method but the more we raise the more writers we can support.
