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.
*cue confetti shaped like teenytiny fit bloggers*
I’m in like Flynn.
Bells on and all that jazz.
As long as I get confetti 😛
Yay, for sure :).
I would love a conference like this. The only problem is where it is going to be.
Ooh, I love the fit bloggers confetti! Fitfetti!
This sounds terrific. Love the idea and would SO be in for it!
Yahooooo! I’m in too. Although March in Baltimore – couldn’t it be somewhere like Florida 🙂
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!
Angie (Losing It and Loving It) says
Sounds like fun! Not totally sure but it could be a good possibility that I could make it.
I don’t know what the requirements are to attend, but it sounds like a lot of fun!
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!
I would expect nothing less from the usual suspects 🙂
great idea, ladies 🙂
Yes, I think so! 🙂
we need to git WorkoutMommy up on the b’roll….
Totally in!!! Just think of the group we could get together for a run around the harbor that weekend!!
Yes! I’d come!
Looking forward to reading the blogs. I have lost 145 pounds so far
Fat Bridesmaid says
YES! Sign me up! I’m totally in!
Sounds great–you can probably count me in!
But this probably means I should stop blogging about cupcakes 😉
I’d be soooo in!
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!!! 🙂
This sounds like a great opportunity! I am interested in attending for sure!
Yay. It’s a bit to travel for me (WA state), but I’m totally in, its definately enough time for me to plan for it.
Marsha @ AWeightLifted says
Count us in!
I’m very close by, so I’ll be watching with interest! Need anyone to host the Wii games? 🙂
I’m VERY interested in the conference! Sounds right up my alley. Baltimore is out for me though. Too far, too $$. Maybe the next one will be closer to me though!
Crabby McSlacker says
Can’t totally commit yet, but put me at 80% likely. Will do my darndest.
Lauren P says
Ohhh….and it’s so close to me too! Count me in!
I am a likely yes… I will have to make the call closer to the event.
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!
I like the idea of a conference like this, and Baltimore is a great location for the first one.
I say, Yay.
Liz Warner says
I’m interested…not sure if I can make it with school and $ but I will try and I think it is a great idea!
We would be interested, however 2010 would be out since we’d just be home from a cruise. I hope this one goes well so there will be another one!
Mel @ A Box of Chocolates says
OMG!! I’m am so freakin excited!! I will be there with bells on, and of course my running shoes. If we’re gonna be in Baltimore we may as well run the Inner Harbor right??? Please let me know what I can do!!!!
I am soooo interested. Count me in.

By March of 2010 I am gonna take mel@boxofchocolates up on the run around inner harbor!!
Amy in OHio says
Depending on cost and what not, I would be totally interested.
It would be for all levels of fitness, right? I’m just now recreating myself (physcially, that is) and I blog about that journey. Would there be a place for someone like me?
You would totally get a YAY from me!
Sweet!! I’ll go to anything that is within driving distance of me!! I’m totally in!!
Yay! Great idea!
Tammy C says
I would go for sure…sounds great!
Jay Becker says
I am in! I love Baltimore and it gives me an excuse to go visit family in Philly while I am there. Yes I will do this!
Amy @Feasibly Fit Mom says
Love the idea, not sure I can do MD. Am interested in more info, for sure!
Okay, if you are doing BAL in Spring, I’m in! Let me know if you want to brainstorm. 🙂

Michele Dochat says
Roni! Please count me in. I am only about 2hrs away. I live in Lititz PA which is in Lancaster County….I can totally be there, and the best part is it’s on my birthday weekend! My birthday is the 21st of March! Can’t wait!
