BlogCamp UK recognises that blogging is now much more than just blogging; increased internet speeds and online media has expanded the activities of bloggers to cover social media, photography and producing videos. So the conference schedule included sessions on photography, videos, presentation and working with brands.
It is always a fun day at BlogCamp UK (I sound so experienced but BlogCamp UK this time last year was my first blogging conference). It is a relaxed day with the opportunity to catch up with lots of bloggers, and unusually this time waffles to eat. The only problem was deciding which sessions to go to. There were several slots where it was hard to choose which one to attend, for example I was torn between the writing and video presentation sessions, but fortunately Vicki has provided a summary of her session on her blog so I can still learn some on-camera tips.
I did a very poor job of taking photographs or videos. Instead of people, I’ve got a picture of my handbag, some business cards and some slides (and not even Sally’s slide showing pants around the ankles). So I’ve created a slideshow of the key points I learnt from each session which you can view on Slideshare or YouTube (this one has a bonus introduction by Flea).
In addition I learnt, an egg timer is useful for rotating video shots and bloggers and vloggers are getting younger; much younger.
You can find more blog posts about the day and the sessions I didn’t attend including fashion and food blogging and photo props on the Tots100 website.
