T4G: Band of Bloggers Panel

I am excited to share some details concerning the T4G: Band of Bloggers meeting which will take place a week from this Wednesday. To catch up on previous posts, go here and here to get general information about the meeting. If plan to attend, please be sure to email me at gospelcentral@yahoo.com and provide your name, blog title, and a contact number. Part of the meeting will be a one hour Q&A discussion panel which will go from 3:00-4:00 p.m. The Heritage Hall will be open 30 minutes prior to the panel discussion (2:30 p.m.), so be sure to get there early if you can to fellowship. Immediately following the panel discussion, we will take a big group photo of everyone attending and have about 45 minutes of unstructured fellowship to meet one another and fellowship together. It will conclude around 5:00 p.m. Here is the panel for the T4G: Band of Bloggers Fellowship:

Mad props on this one Brother Brister... mad props!!! Is this going to be televised?

Blogger Timmy said...

No, Dan it will not be televised . . . but I must say, I thought it would be neat to live blog the live-blogger himself. That's very tempting for me, but I am sure I will have many other responsibilities at that time. You ought to come, and bring that paparazzi lens with you. :)

Due to the time constraints, it seems that there will only be time for a few questions. Will they be submitted ahead of time so the best ones can be answered, or will they come from the floor?

Let me encourage you to go ahead and plan out your questions that you might have. The theme/thesis of the meeting will is still be decided upon (and will be announced soon), yet at this point any question is a valid question so long as it pertains to blogging, the gospel, and the like. Currently, I have been typing up some questions that I have so that I would look like a bumbling idiot when I ask one. :) I will get back with you on the submission of those questions, however.

That's a great question - and one that is out of my league. I will have to check on that. If that is not possible, I will at least check to see if I can have the discussion recorded in MP3 format and available online.

I really appreciate the questions and suggestions! Please keep them coming. This is for all you guys, and I want it to be the best meeting possible. Anything I can do to make this happen would be my pleasure.
