Milblog Conference in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 22, 2006

Andi from Andi's World has been working tirelessly (from what I can tell from her website) organizing this first ever MilBlog Conference. A few of us from THE WAR TAPES are planning to attend. Should be an amazing day of stories! I'm really looking forward to meeting bloggers whose writing I've followed over the past months and learning about new ones to put on my 'must read' list.

From the 2006 MilBlog Conference website:

The 2006 Milblog Conference will take place in Washington, D.C. on Saturday, April 22, 2006. The conference is designed to bring milbloggers together for one full day of interesting discussion on topics associated with milblogging. We will explore the history of milblogs, as well as what the future may hold for this medium which the military community is using to tell their stories.

The milblog community is diverse, and we intend to showcase the full spectrum of milblogs, including those who have blogged from theater, veteran members of the armed forces, spouses and parents.

Registration for the conference is free of charge. Due to seating limitations, there are only 300 seats available for this event. Milbloggers and/or members of the military community will be allowed to pre-register. There are 150 seats reserved for the military community.

Pre-registration will begin on February 8 and continue through midnight February 15. Any slots not filled by milbloggers will be given to the general public. Registration for the public will begin on February 16. All registrations are first-come, first-serve.
