Women and Science Blogging at the NC Science Blogging Conference
The 2008 North Carolina Science Blogging Conference (organized by ScienceBlog’s very own Bora Zivkovic) is fast approaching.
Karen Ventii and I will be co-chairing a 1 hour session tentatively called “Exploring Women in Science Blogging”. (This announcement also appears on her blog here.)
We are interested to get your feedback and comments on what we are proposing and your suggestions for improving or making it better. Here are some details:
There will be a diverse panel of female science bloggers (we’re thinking one graduate student, one professor, and a third in industry or in business for herself) to share their experiences as science bloggers and address specific topics such as:
- How I got into blogging,
- How I promoted my blog,
- Where it is today,
- What opportunities my blog has opened up for me,
- Juggling blog with career and family
The final 10-15 minutes will entertain questions from the audience.
We will also provide a video conference of the session and a comprehensive guide of women science bloggers.
So what do you think? Does this sound interesting to you? What would YOU like to see in a session on women science bloggers? Tell us your thoughts! We’re particularly interested in finding ways to make this session available to and useful for women science bloggers who blog anonymously and/or who can’t attend the conference (thus the video conference).
