Blogads trekked to Park City, Utah for the first-ever Evolution of Women in Social Media Conference and found a bona fide grassroots get-together with outstanding panelists. As several attendees put it: like the very early days of Blogher. Great to see our bloggers there, including Jen Neal of NakedJen, Anne-Marie Nicholes of ThisMamaCooks and Heather Spohr of The Spohrs are Multiplying. More swag than advertisers though, which was a shame, since these close-knit conferences are uncanny chances for advertisers to meet super-connected social media influentials. To wit, the 350-attendee conference had 340 Facebook fans, over 1,000 Twitter followers and more than 100,000 mentions of #evoconf (still counting!).
We’d be remiss to leave out:
- The Blogads t-shirt proved resilient at its highest elevation yet (9,990 ft above sea level).
- Bush’s Beans clocked over 300 mustachioed photos on their Facebook fan page by setting up a costume prop table and digital photo booth at the party.
- Stephanie Smirnov of De Vires PR’s postscript love letter to the FTC after her resort ravings and props for the local brew.
- A fully-clothed pool jump to conclude the festivities! (via Marlynn Schotland of UrbanBliss)
You can see all the dust this out-West blogger meetup kicked up here.
