Hey, fellow bird bloggers! The 2009 Midwest Birding Symposium is looking to have bird bloggers come to this HUGE birding event happening in September! They've made special arrangements for WiFi access in the vendor hall and have a number of bird bloggers already coming to the MBS (including myself).
There will be talks about these emerging trends in birding. Mike Bergin from 10000birds.com will be giving a talk on blogging about birds. Jeff Gordon will be giving a talk about how technology can enhance (not clutter) your birding experience, and there will even be a blogging station set up in South Auditorium for you to share your blog with others.
There's a special Blogger's Discount ($25 off the normal registration fee!) if you are still on the fence about attending 2009 MBS. Contact editor at birdwatchersdigest dot com ASAP to get the special bird blogger registration form. What have you got to lose? Plenty of bird blogging fodder and plenty of celebrity birders will be there. Also, we can share tips and tricks about the fun of nature blogging. Check out the list--I'm so excited the oh so dreamy Scott Weidensaul is going to be there!
