Beer and Blogging come together at the Boulder Beer Blogging Conference

When you're in the business of online community, you learn quickly there is a niche community for everything. Like beer? There's a community for that. Like to blog? There are lots of communities for you. What if you blog about beer? Not only are there groups for you, there is a dedicated conference.

Yesterday kicked off Day 1 of the Boulder Beer Blogging Conference where beer enthusiasts gathered to celebrate their critical role in the blogging ecosystem.

I was honored to be invited to speak as part of Day 2's track on technology (Saturday 9:30-11:30am). Come on out to the Boulder Marriott this morning to hear more about BlogFrog's community-enabling platform and hear from my fellow presenters, who are also up to some pretty cool stuff:

  1. Perry Quinn from Lijit ( will talk about adding a search engine to your blog, using it to know more about your readers, and monetizing the result.
  2. Pete Sheinbaum from The Mandelbrot Project: Creator of Daily Candy and founder of the soon-to-be revealed The Mandelbrot Project, will speak on creating and growing your community on the web.
  3. Jason Cormier from Room 214 ( Room 214 is a social media agency that uses social networking, online word of mouth and integrated search marketing to help companies get noticed, retain customers and continue growing.
These are some of Boulder's smartest entrepreneurs and you don't want to miss them. I haven't decided if beer bloggers are a tough audience or not so I decided to loosen them up with this video I created at
