Come with Me to Food Blog South!

Okay, so Vida Vegan was beyond awesome but next year we're without our beloved conference. Come with me to Birmingham in January. It looks like a great conference and I'd love to not be the only vegan there. (Plus I miss all of you and it would be a great place to catch up!)

There's even a class about honing your media skills that's the day before the conference. Use the code IReadBV  for 10% off and that works even for the early bird price! (It is only good for the conference and not the media class the day before it.)

Here's what they have to say about the conference (quoted from their site):

Join us in Birmingham, Alabama on January 28 for Food Blog South 2012! This year’s going to be jam-packed with sessions for beginning and experienced food bloggers, and plenty of time to meet and mingle with fellow bloggers.

Learn how to take awesome food shots with your cameraphone.
Get an inside scoop on hot food trends for 2012.
Watch a blog redesign—live—and get the best design ideas for food bloggers.
Learn how to build your brand and how to make money blogging.
Come a day early for a session on honing your media skills with Lisa Ekus andVirginia Willis.

Our speakers include Kat Kinsman, managing editor of CNN’s Eatocracy; blogger, book coach, writer, and editor Dianne Jacob; bloggers Hélène Dujardin (Tartelette) and Jay Ducote (Bite and Booze); and Ale Sharpton of the online show Cruisin’ for a Brewsin’.

Ready to sign up? Standard registration is $150 per person. But register by October 28 and you’ll save $25! (Need more incentive to be an early bird? Be one of the first 15 people to register, and your blog may get a new look—live!—during our blog-design session.) And, we’ve arranged for a discounted rate for rooms at Hyatt Place in downtown Birmingham.

  1. Sounds like a great conference! It's no Vida Vegan Con, but still!
