Nuffnang Blogopolis 2011 Roundup

I do not think Melbourne’s Federation Square knew what hit it on Saturday July 30, 2011 when 300 bloggers joined forces at ZINC for Nuffnang Blogopolis!

The day was broken up into seven master classes, each featuring presentations from some of the biggest names in the Australian blogosphere. There was so much content covered throughout the day providing those in attendance with a wave of excitement and inspiration upon conclusion of the event.


Bree from The Blog Stylist (who may just be the most amazing multi-tasker we have ever seen) managed to not only listen to those presenting but to also live-blog the wealth of knowledge being presented as well as tweet simultaneously – incredible! You can find links to all her recaps below as well as all our speakers twitter accounts if you’re interested in following them!
