Midwest Fishing & Hunting Bloggers Summit Set for July 22-24, 2011
1st Annual Program Scheduled at Cragun’s in Brainerd; Presented by Sportsman Channel
New Berlin, WI -(Ammoland.com)- The first annual Midwest Fishing & Hunting Bloggers Summit is set for July 22-24, 2011 at Cragun’s Resort in Brainerd, Minn. The event is presented by Sportsman Channel and is meant for those outdoor bloggers who want to network and learn about how to hone their craft.
“Outdoor bloggers are becoming a strong majority in our outdoor writing community,” said Jim Braaten, founder of the Summit and outdoor blogger at Sportsman’s Blog. “We are gaining attention from corporations and product manufacturers as one of the best ways to get information out to their audience in a quick and meaningful manner. The Summit is just a way for us bloggers to network and learn from one another while dropping a line in the water at one of the best lake areas in the Midwest.”
The Summit is as much about learning and networking as it is enjoying a quick summer getaway in a famous resort town. The highlight of the weekend is a presentation by Jeanette Kozlowski of Cat5 Commerce on “How to Successfully Market Your Blog.” Ms. Kozlowski holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in journalism from the Missouri School of Journalism. In her graduate studies, she focused primarily on researching blogging and its effect on mainstream media.
Registration is $100 to secure your spot in the Summit. However, those who register before June 17 will receive their money back in the form of a Cragun’s gift card. To register for the Summit, or learn more, visit http://midwestbloggers.org
