Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall: Blog Festivals for all Seasons!

Education & Technology

Winter, spring, summer or fall
All you have to do is call
And I’ll be there
You’ve got a friend

You’ve Got a Friend
Listen to James Taylor who sang Carol King’s song and made it famous. I’m grateful to Myfreemp3.eu for making the MP3 free for everyone to download.

As the lyrics state in You’ve Got a Friend, Winter, Spring, Summer, or Fall, or you got to do is call. In our case, Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall all you have to do is come to the Blog Festival.

The Spring Blog Festival (SBF) may be over, but the next ones are ready to roll. We are going to have 4 blog festivals one for each season of the year. The Fall Blog Festival (FBF) is ready to go on September 21, 2014. The Winter is scheduled for December 21, 2014, the Spring for March 21, and 2015 the Summer will take place on June 21, 2015.

I have organized conferences, MOOCs and mega courses. The Spring Blog Festival was one of the best events I was involved in.  The presenters talked about their experiences in very authentic and passionate ways.  I guess reflective journaling brings out the best in people. Everyone was very honest as they shared how they used their blogs.

First Spring Blog Festival (SBF)
The 3-day blog festival showcased bloggers and their work. The links to the webinars and content of the presentations are available in the courseware. Support and discussions forums are available in the course feed. You may join and content and recordings of the live online classes of SBF.

Topics for Blog Festivals
Topics ranged from transformational blogging and reflective blogging to connectivity, history, evolution, teaching tools, multi-media, thinking & creativity, families, schools, and content curation.  Some of the highlights of SBF was the author panel discussions. Shelly Terrell did an amazing job moderating the 2 author events.

Over 1742 participants joined the SBF event. We invite you to join as a participant and/or presenter at the upcoming FBF, today!
