FitBloggin’ is all about community, and what better way to show that then to open up our (now traditional) Live Blogger assistantships for another year?
If you know you want to be at FitBloggin’15 but you need a little help with the finances, being a Live Blogger can be a great way to help make it happen! You’ll attend the conference with a free ticket, and you’ll be sharing your passion for the conference with the world.
Here’s how it works:
In exchange for a free ticket to FitBloggin’15, each assistant will cover one session as a Live Blogger.
Live Bloggers need to be able to type quickly and stay unbiased for the traditional sessions, but don’t forget we also have fitness activities, discussions and sometimes, offsite tours. We’ll cover everything to give people who couldn’t make it a chance to see what this year’s conference is all about. It will be up to the Live Bloggers to capture the feel of sessions, share discussions and pictures, and even grab a few quotes.
Overall, Live Bloggers are responsible for creating the official record of the session they are assigned to, transcribing the conversation and capturing the content. You will need to use your own laptops. Photos are not required but encouraged. Click here to see examples from last year.
Assistants will receive free admission to the conference, which includes all sessions, breakfasts, lunches and evening social activities. Travel, hotel and other expenses are NOT included. Note: Refunds will NOT be given if you have already purchased a ticket, but you can transfer your ticket to another person.
If you are interested, apply below. Applications will only be accepted until Feb. 21. We hope to notify everyone by Feb. 28.
Only apply if you are prepared to attend and complete the duties as assigned. Please use the comments below for any questions.
