Personal Blogging and Social Media Conference
June 15th and 16th, 2012 in Vancouver, BC
We Like to Have Fun
Inside our workshops and seminars, you’ll be treated to plenty of laughs and good times. But in between sessions and at the Northern Voice party, you can hang out with very cool people – your fellow attendees and our speakers – who know how to have a good time.
We’re Good Value
Since our first un-conference, a Northern Voice ticket has always been one of the best values in town. Our basic ticket price has never gone over $100 – and if you reserve an early-bird special, you save even more.
We Like to Share Knowledge
At our keynotes, seminars and Moosecamps, learn everything you ever wanted to know about blogging but were afraid to ask. The learning that goes on outside of the sessions can be just as valuable, too.
We Like to Tell Stories
Personal blogging is about instantly connecting your voice with an audience. Our participants are into food, fiction, fashion, technology – pretty much any niche you can name.
We've Been Around A Long Time
Northern Voice began in Vancouver in 2005 as an informal, accessible personal blogging conference for techies and newbies alike. That makes our conference one of the first social media conferences in the universe.
And... We're Live. So, About Those T-Shirts.
February 6th, 2012
Live! Live, darn it, live!
We're back online and you may have noticed that the web site is a little different this year. We are grey. Grey. Yes, you heard me - we're grey. Grey is the new black and it is cool. It took a number of discussions to get to this year's "colour" and you would think that such a decision could be made off the cuff and completely without a huge amount of thought. We change every year! Surely, our colour choices would number in the millions! The problem is, we have only so many t-shirt colours to pick from. Yah, I thought it was a little weird too. How could we be limited by colour! Yellow? Puce? Tangerine? (Oh, wait, we did that one already.)
We decided we needed to go completely meta. We adjoured to a dark hallway, deep within the Northern Voice bunker, cracked a bottle of white wine and talked about our emotions, t-shirt colours, the meaning of it all, how darkness made us feel...oh, did I not mention the lights were also turned off? We're cool that way. While we were all congratulating each other on how awesome we all were, it hit us. Why not adapt to the colour we had immersed ourselves in? (That would be darkness and black and...uhh, stuff.) Why not embrace a new direction? Why not take our collective selves and make a new colour? Yes, a new colour! We could totally do that! Jay-Z did it! Why not us!?
