They're Talking Travel Blogging at the BlogHer 2009 and SWSX Conferences.

Not only are travel bloggers finally being recognized by the Weblog Awards, they are also, finally, finding a voice at some of the larger blog-focused conferences.

Here's the scope...

Sheila Scarborough from Family Travel Logue (and my co-blogger at Perceptive Travel blog) will be hosting “Core Conversation” about travelblogging alongside Pam Mandel from Nerd's Eye View at SWSX 09 this March in Austin.

And in July, at the BlogHer conference in Chicago, there will be a session devoted to travel blogging. Debbie from Delicious Baby and Kim Mance from Galavanting are also organizing a half-day meetup for travel bloggers.

Sure would like to go to these but that won't be happening. I just hope there will be some videos / podcasts / live twitter of these events for those of us who won't be able to make either of these conferences.

Thanks so much for helping spread the word! The BlogHer meetup is not limited to BlogHer attendees, so we hope to see lots of our online buddies there!

Well, if I win the lottery, I'll be joining you all.

Hi Liz,

I'm going to try to line up some people ahead of time to set up livestreaming on UStream or a similar service, if the SXSWi bandwidth can hold up. :)

Would also be cool to get someone to interview Pam Mandel and I live on their cell phone, using Qik, during which we can try to summarize our panel discussion.
