    You blog, but you're busy, so you're learning to do it on-the-go. (I mean, as long as you're doing it safely. You're not blogging while driving, right?) You have lots of options for mobile blogging, and this session can teach you how, when and why to use them.

Room of Your Own

  1. Blogs & Body Image: What are we teaching our kids?, proposed by mamaVISION
    As children grow older and become more web-savvy, many parents are re-thinking what they write on their blogs. What are we communicating about our own self-image, and how does that relate to what we're teaching our children, through what we write online? Join this session to discuss how to remain positive and healthy about our own bodies, as well as for future generations.
  2. Blogging for Uncle Sam, proposed by Tanya Brothen
    Did you know that the U.S. government maintains blogs for both domestic and foreign audiences? It's true! Attend this session to learn about government blogging initiatives, how they're reaching out, and how you can get involved.
