Blogger Fair: A Smashing Success

Let me tell you a little secret, those of us running the first ever Blogger Fair yesterday were a little nervous. It was the first time that any of us had done that sort of thing.
Erica Perdue and Myself

First we weren't positive on how many would show up, sure there were pre-registrations, but no guarantee of who would show up. We had practiced our presentation, but that hadn't went well, something about a lens cap and 5 college educated journalists... Anyway that's a story for another time.

The presentation went well, and we did get a few blogs up and running right away, four posts on two blogs in less than 18 hours after the event. But even more importantly, we got to meet people. Whether they all blog for us or not, we did impart knowledge that hopefully they will find useful. After all, that's what our job is, to give people the knowledge that they both want and need.

Thanks for showing up and supporting us Downriver, I can't wait to read what you all have to say.

If you missed out on today's blogger fair, or just want to see our smiling faces again, we'll be hosting more of these in the future. We're also working out the details for an advanced blogger session for people that want to learn more tips and tricks.
