Yesterday on Twitter I tweeted out a question asking anyone who is interested in coming to a full day of blogger training in Melbourne to express interest in coming along. 20 people very quickly indicated their interest.
It looks likely that in the next month this will actually become a reality so I’m now looking to collect the details of anyone who is interested so that when it’s ready to launch I can immediately let you know.
Update: Chris Garrett from the UK (who co-authored ProBlogger the Book) will be co-presenting this event. It’ll be a unique opportunity have both of us in the same place at the same time.
I’m still pulling together details of dates (it will be in the short term though as Chris is flying in in just a few weeks time) what it’ll exactly cover and how much it will cost however I can say that I’m aiming for:
- affordability (I’m aiming for us to cover costs)
- a super useful day for bloggers who already have blogs (ie its not for those wanting to start blogs but those who are already on the way)
There is no obligation to attend if you leave your details below – it’ll just help me work out how many are interested and how to structure things. It’ll also help me to notify people as the timeframe for holding this event will be short and the seats look like being quite limited in the venue and style of event we have in mind (very secretive I know – but it should be a very fun day).
I’ll only use your details to contact you about this event or others that we might run in Melbourne and not for other purposes and your details will not be shared with anyone.
If you’re interested – please add your name and email address below and I’ll be in touch (hopefully in the next week) with an update on details.
Please note – you will receive an email shortly after subscribing which will contain a link you must click on to confirm your subscription. If you don’t get the email – please check your spam filter as they do occasionally end up there!
Update: We’ve had over 70 100 190 210 expressions of interest already from a couple of tweets.
I’m not wanting to build any hype on this but this event is more than likely to sell out as we’re looking at small venues so this could sell out simply from notifying those interested. So – if you’re interested in attending make sure your name is on the list.
Update: a few people have asked if this is limited to Aussie or if we’re open to overseas attendees. If you’re able to get to Melbourne for the date you’re welcome to attend – although we are presuming that this will mainly be an event mainly attended by Aussies. We do have a few people already signaling that they’ll fly in from Asia/Pacific areas and interstate so it certainly doesn’t look like just being a Melbourne based group of bloggers so far.
