First Bird Blogging Confernce!

Calling all bird bloggers, calling all bird bloggers:

The first ever Bird Blogger Conference will be at Cape May Autumn Weekend October 26-27, 2007! What does this mean--well, a lot of bird bloggers in one place at one time to meet face to face, share ideas, and maybe even watch some birds! Bird bloggers are eligible for a discount and must sign up through me. Here are the qualifications for the discount:

1. Your blog must have been started sometime before January 31, 2007.
2. Your blog must have regular updates at a minimum of four times a month.
3. If your blog has been inactive for more than 30 days, it will not qualify for the discount.
4. You must promote the Cape May Autumn Weekend and the 1st Birder Blogger Conference periodically in your blog--not every day or every week, but periodically remind your readers that you are going and that it would be great if they came along too.

Speaking of readers, this is a great chance for all of you to come and meet some bird bloggers out there. So, start signing up for Autumn Weekend now.

I'm thinking about organizing a Birds and Beers night there on the evening of October 26. Any natives have a good recommendation for a place for birders to get some beer and talk some birds, let me know.

Bloggers who would like more info on the discount rate, please email me at Sharon at Birdchick dot com.

I can't wait! As for a good beer spot, there's the Jackson Mountain Cafe. They have beer and it's right in the center of the shopping area.

There's the Ugly Mug too, but I've never been there.

We should try to gather everyone for a trip out to the salt marshes on The Skimmer too. Have you done that before?

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was just starting to panic, looking at all the different packages, wondering which to pick, what to do, where to stay, etc etc. Thanks!

You had my interest piqued until the "Your blog must have been started sometime before January 31, 2007" qualifier. Why the cutoff?

This was essentially to prevent someone from starting a blog this week just to get a discount for the Autumn Weekend.

The advantage for a festival to give bloggers a discounted rate is that the festival benefits from publicity from our blogs. It takes a new blogger a few months to find their voice and then another few months to really generate regular traffic, so I chose six months as the cut off point.

If your blog falls short of the six month cut off point but you feel you have good traffic numbers, email me and we can talk.

Sounds like a great idea. Anyone know where I can get a return ticket from Australia for under $500???? No - guess I'll have to miss out then.
