Meeting Boston Bloggers (Part One)

This week is one of those weeks where I need 48 hours in each day. I've been so busy that I haven't been able to read all of the posts I'd planned to this week.

First, my day job as a usability professional (I architect web sites for corporate clients) has been especially hectic and jam-packed. We're working simultaneously on two huge web site re-designs which have to launch between now and November 30th. Second, there have been several Boston-area blogger events this week which I just had to attend.

I'm fairly new to blogging, so I registered and attended the Tech Blogs event at the Cambridge Innovation Center Tuesday evening. The panelists included some well-known, heavyweight technology bloggers including: Don Dodge, Director of Business Development at Microsoft; Jimmy Guterman, Editor of Release 2.0; Barbara Heffner, partner at CHEN PR; Nabeel Hyatt, CEO at Conduit Labs; columnist Scott Kirsner from the Boston Globe; and Bijan Sabet, a venture capitalist at Spark Capital. Podcaster Dan Bricklin recorded the event posted the audio on his web site.

The panelists and audience shared several tips and suggestions about blogging as senior corporate executives, how to grow your blog audience, emerging trends, and common issues all of us bloggers face. If you are a business executive interested in how blogging can benefit your business, then I suggest you read Jonathan Feeley's post at Digital Interactif: 5 Reasons to start a Blog for your Business.

I learned a lot at this event and noticed that many of these successful bloggers use the same Typepad service which I use.
