Weblogs: do sonho à realidade

Muitos dos eventos que têm decorrido, que abordam as questões ligadas às diversas utilizações que podem ser dadas aos blogs, são realizados fora de Portugal. Para quem não tem meios financeiros, que permitam suportar as despesas de deslocação, poderá constituir, logo à partida, um obstáculo... ou talvez não :-)

Se não podemos ir à montanha, talvez a montanha possa vir até nós!

A Nancy estava a ouvir a conversa que decorreu durante o II Encontro de Weblogs, através da Bev, e lançou o desafio aqui:

"At last summers Blogher, Bev and I dreamed of a women's blogging conference in Portugal in the fall, at a winery during the grape crush." [and Lilia told me about your dream and Bev's]

Ana, será que a organização de um BlogHer em Portugal poderia ajudar na resposta à tua (e nossa) pergunta, sobre «quantas mulheres têm blogs em Portugal?» e talvez juntar «que utilizações lhes dão» e o que «representa ter um blog», entre muitas outras que podemos incorporar.

  1. Hey Mónica! We could even start writing about it on the blogopedia.

  4. Ricardo, basta que a ideia comece a ganhar corpo. Para já a divulgação da ideia, talvez na recém criada Blogopedia, secção de eventos..., like it was suggested by Bev.

    Nancy, let's roll. I think Bev's idea is great. There´s a new space (almost new born wiki), that started as a way to unconver the real portuguese blogosphere (women and man) and i guess it will be a great place to join all the pieces, concerning the event.

  5. Sim! Ja escrevi no wiki!

    One thing to consider is do you want an event that is for women bloggers? To encourage new women bloggers? To help experienced women richen their practice? Hands on how to's for newbies? A combination?

    Bev and I talked about something that allowed a smaller group to be "hands on" with computers to set up blogs, learn about comments, tags, etc. Maybe do this intensive session prior to a larger "conference" with speakers, etc.

    I wish my Portuguese (especially written) was better. I feel bad writing English on the wiki.

  7. Nancy,

    I agree with your suggestion and Bev's. Having an «hands on» session(s) makes it an added value for all of us that are still giving their first steps.

    In II Encontro de Weblogs it was one of the suggestions made for future encounters: having how-to workshops. Agree also with a mixed format for that.

    Apart from your suggestions (blogging, tagging, RSS...) we could also dedicate one of the workshop sessions to «doing research with blogging», and i'm thinking about Jill and Lilia's experience with that. Hope they consider about comming and sharing their experiences :-)

    Has for your portuguese, i guess it's better than my english ;-)
    Feel free to keep editing the page and i will go their and collaborate :-) After all, this is a work-in-progress-collaborating-effort-across-languages-and-cultures.

    Thanks,
    Mónica

  8. Ladies,

    I was in the Portwine trade for the best of 45 years and now I am retired. Why don't you choose one of the most spectacular wine regions in the world for your meeting like the Douro valley in north Portugal ?

    All the best,

    Manuel Castelo Branco
