LA MIRADA, CALIF. --- Biola University, in conjunction with the university’s Torrey Honors Institute, is sponsoring the fourth annual GodBlogCon in Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend, September 19 - 21. GodBlogCon is the largest gathering of Christian bloggers where attendees will consider how to live “Christianly” in a Web 2.0 world.
The conference, formerly held at Biola University, is being held simultaneously with BlogWorld, the world’s largest blogging and new media conference that is on the leading-edge of online technology and internet-savvy businesses, and the New Media Expo. GodBlogCon 2008 seeks to foster community and learning through comprehensive sessions, web media experts and fellowshipping.
“The blogosphere is a strange place where people form connections in isolation. It is easy to forget that there are real people at the other end of the fiber-optic highway who are experiencing the same frustrations and grappling with the same issues that I as an individual blogger am dealing with,” said Dustin Steeve, executive coordinator of GodBlogCon. “GodblogCon is the one time each year when Christian bloggers come together to encourage and equip one another.”
The conference was moved to Las Vegas so GodBlogCon attendees can also partake in the blogging conference, BlogWorld.
This year’s GodBlogCon speakers represent a range of experience and knowledge of new and older media. These Christians are united in their belief that the new media offers amazing potential for Christians to impact culture.
