Early Planning Stages!

Welcome to the home of FitBloggin’10! No, no, it’s not he tenth FitBloggin conference, it’s the first! Slated for 2010! The conference’s goal is to educate, inspire, share, network, and learn how to blog your way to a healthier you. We are planning on events and panels geared towards anyone who blogs or is interested in blogging about a healthy lifestyle. For a brief overview of the conference agenda check out the schedule page. More details comin’ soon!

The only problem is we don’t know how many of you would be interested in or have the ability to attend such a conference. So help us out and leave a comment below with a simply YAY or nay.

The first FitBloggin’ will be held in the beautiful Inner Harbor area of Baltimore Maryland, Saturday March 20, 2010.

So what say you? Right up your alley or no way man, conferences aren’t my thing.

I will attempt to respond to early concerns/question here in the original post as opposed to the comments.

First order of business… the location. The plan is for a traveling FitBloggin’ conference. The first year’s location was selected for ease of organization. If (when) it is a success the conference will travel to a new city in 2011.

Amy asked about fitness levels… Great question! ALL are welcome! Whether you are considering a blog to help you lose weight or an avid runner who archives their marathon training online. We aren’t here to judge each others fitness levels but to explore how blogs can help inspire, educate and help everyone live healthier lives.

    I would love a conference like this. The only problem is where it is going to be.

  • http://thehappyrunner.blogspot.com Felice

    Ooh, I love the fit bloggers confetti! Fitfetti!

    This sounds terrific. Love the idea and would SO be in for it!

  • http://iateapie.net Tanya

    Yahooooo! I’m in too. Although March in Baltimore – couldn’t it be somewhere like Florida :-)

  • http://fithungrygurl.com Irene

    Oh, now I see it is going to be in Baltimore. That’s totally doable for me.

    It’s my SIL birthday that day though. But I can still go. I don’t like her anyway…LOL!

  • http://www.losingitandlovingit.com/blog Angie (Losing It and Loving It)

    Sounds like fun! Not totally sure but it could be a good possibility that I could make it.

  • http://www.runthirteenpointone.blogspot.com renae

    I don’t know what the requirements are to attend, but it sounds like a lot of fun!

  • http://courteatsu.wordpress.com Courtney

    I would totally be interested in coming! I’m not sure whether it would actually work, seeing as though it’s quite far to travel by car, and I’m definitely too poor [darn university!] to fly down!

    We’ll see though! I totally will if I can!

  • http://www.mousearoo.ca mousearoo

    I would expect nothing less from the usual suspects :)

  • http://englishcinemarie.blogspot.com Cinemarie

    COOL! I would LOVE to attend this conference!!! The only problem is – I have no idea where in the world I will be in March 2010! (I will either be between contracts, or starting a new one, my current contract ends in Jan/Feb…) But if I’m available at that point and can make it to Baltimore – I sure will be there!!! When do we need to say ‘yes’ by?

    Thanks Roni!!! :)

  • http://Website Amy

    I am a likely yes… I will have to make the call closer to the event.

    2 suggestions…
    1. A group walk around Baltimore… great way to exercise and see some sights!
    2. A fun run… maybe set up a jog or something!?!?
    Just a couple thoughts.

    You rock Roni!! Thanks for doing this!
