EVO ’10 Roundup

by Blogads Staff
Monday, July 12th, 2010

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.
