Announcing Type-A Mom 2010

I am pleased to announce that Type-A Mom 2010 is now official! The conference will be held Sept. 24-26 at the Asheville Renaissance situated right in the heart of downtown Asheville, and walkable to dozens of shops, independent restaurants and museums/attractions. You can book your room at the special Type-A Mom rate at Asheville Renaissance’s site. We are accepting speaker proposals, and will soon have sponsorship information (you can find out as soon as we do by filling out this sponsorship inquiry form).

You can register now for the Super Early Bird rate! The Super Early Bird will expire, and there is a limited number of tickets available at this pricing.

Friday day-time will be devoted to Type-A Mom Business, and then in the afternoon we will feature the speed dating and reception. Saturday will feature break-out sessions for the following tracks: passions, practicalities, dads and tribes, followed in the evening by a cocktail reception. Sunday will open with the Mom Market, followed by a general session, the popular Blogger Town Hall Meeting, the keynote, and possibly an evening activity of some sort. We will again feature a Kid Con, but do not have the details yet. The pricing will be more than it was last year.

New this year:

Type-A Mom Business for Companies and Type-A Mom Business for Bloggers

This one-day add-on conference on Friday will have limited registrations, and it will feature two tracks: company and blogger. The company track will feature presentations and panels including case studies on social media marketing, tips on blogger outreach and how-to sessions on using social media tools to promote your business. The blogger track will feature panels on building your blog as a business, from nuts and bolts like setting up as a company, trademarking and legal issues for bloggers.

Dad Track

This year, the dads will get their own track, featuring dad blogger speakers and panels on dad blogging and social media.

Tribes

There are so many wonderful niches in blogging, but one issue is that some great ones don’t have a vast enough community to warrant a full session. To address this, Type-A Mom will have small group power sessions with one tribal leader where bloggers in the same niche can brainstorm, discuss issues in their niche and network. Watch for your chance to suggest your tribe.
