Last night, the SpeakerUp event was held for Podcamp Nashville this year. We had a fantastic meeting and if you missed it, shame on you. But…. Luckily you can catch the entire video (thanks to @mDave) here via Ustream.
Several great ideas were brought up during the meeting around the subject of ways to get involved in the time before March 26. One of those ideas was a blog tour where ANYONE can pick a day to write a blog post on the subject of Podcamp. I loved the idea and before I knew it, had volunteered myself to help with it. So here’s the details:
What’s a blog tour?
A blog tour is the same thing as concert tour or a book tour but it’s hosted on several different blogs. Each day, starting today and going until Podcamp (March 26) We are going to have one blogger/podcaster/vlogger a day, write about Podcamp Nashville. There are 37 days until Podcamp; We want to have 37 different bloggers participate.
Why write a post?
If those 3 reasons aren’t enough to convince you, leave me a better reason in the comments and I’ll add it.
The other question I’ve been asked a lot is what to write about on this blog tour. Here’s a few ideas to get you started.
Ideas for your Podcamp blog tour post
The core of Podcamp, and the uncoference culture in general, is experimentation. The focus shouldn’t be on coming up with the awesome ideas, it’s executing or helping with an idea while learning from your experience and sharing it along the way.
So here’s what you can start right NOW:
If you have any questions about the blog tour or anything else, you can tweet them to me at @jwidmer or leave them in the comments below.
