Orange Bloggers Lounge

Next Tuesday I will head off the dusty Caprock of Lubbock, and head to the wonderfully traffic-congested city of Atlanta, GA.  While there I ll be attending The Orange Conference.  I ll be hanging out with 20 other much more qualified bloggers in the bloggers lounge, and sharing my experiences all week.  I m super excited about meeting up with some friends that I only know through my online experiences.  I know awkward side hugs and handshakes will commence for the next week, it s going to be great!  If you re attending, then I d love to see you in the Bloggers lounge for the Brown Bag Lunches offered both Thursday and Friday at lunch.  If you re not attending, then please stop by jonathancliff.com all next week for daily recaps and obnoxious thoughts on my week in Atlanta.

Chances are that you are either following a number of blogs out there on the inter-web OR you’ve at least checked into a few of them from time to time while doing a search online. And you’ve probably found some pretty helpful information or ideas while reading. To try and help you guys network at Orange 2009, we are assembling nearly 20 of the more well-known bloggers in children’s ministry and student ministry to get together and meet with you guys on site at the event.

These guys have built in networks, and your participation is only a click away. Be sure to stop by the second floor of the Arena while you’re at Orange to shake a hand, put a face with a name, or ask your questions. They’ll be hosting brown bag lunches on Thursday and Friday to cover specific topics related to social media and networking…just another free perk of joining us at Orange 2009.

Oh, and did we mention that there will be free online access and coffee in the bloggers lounge?
