What I Wish Official Bloggers Would Write
Please write a post about the sessions you attended. (For me, what I can learn is the most important aspect of a convention.) If you attend several sessions each day, blogging could become a grueling chore but you wouldn't have to write or publish all posts on the same day. Those of us who couldn't attend wouldn't mind having the conference posts extend beyond the last day of the conference and those who were at the conference may have attended different sessions and may also like to read what you have to say.
In your posts, I wish you would tell me
- the name of the session you attended and who presented it.
- a brief highlight of the session.
- a little more detail about some aspect of the session that was new, helpful, of interest, or especially useful to you.
- how you will (or already have) put that information to use.
I'm on the outside of genealogy conferences, having only ever attended one, and have never been (and probably never will be) an Official Blogger, so maybe I'm missing something -- possibly the busyness and hectic atmosphere of a convention. I'm interested in learning.
My only other thought is a plea for us to be kind-hearted and respectful toward each other. Engendering hurt feelings does nothing to encourage community.
