Book Bloggers & Publishers Online Conference | March 7-11

Are you a book blogger? Want to be a book blogger? Want to have some fun with the book blogging community? Then consider participating in the 2012 Book Bloggers and Publishers Online Conference. Lots to learn, good people and some free books to boot. There are dozens of interesting panels to choose from and many excellent professional guests and experienced bloggers. I've had the pleasure of being on panels in past years and also as a regular joe. Trust me it is a good time and well worth the registration fee.

  1. Thanks for the mention Doug!
    We desperately want you on panels again... I dropped you an email too. With everything changing in publishing since we started the conference it is mind blowing.

    Oh and the full announcement is not up yet, but we were doing online safety as part of the BBPOC, but I got a speaker so amazing that I have taken it out and will be setting a time the week after Conference.

    She specializes in all the things we should be doing and are probably not. I thought it was so important for everyone to learn that it is open to all outside the conference. If you do not attend the BBPOC though we are asking for a $5 donation.

    So excited to be working in publishing these days!

    1. Hey Terry, I would be happy to participate. It's always enjoyable and I see a whole new raft of topics this year I am anxious to attend. Look forward to reconnecting with you and my fellow bloggers. See you there.


For bloggers comments are like water to a man (or woman) wandering in the desert. A precious commodity. I love to hear from everyone and do my best to respond to every post.
