"But what do I write about?" is what most people ask. It may be hard to believe now, but once you start to write on a regular basis, you will find there are an infinite number of event blog topics and the more you write, the easier they will be to find.

Crowd source for real or just gauge interest. This can draw some very useful responses for future posts and for future events.
Make sure you get lots of photos at all of your events. Photos from previous events help to add interest to your blog and give attendees an idea of what to expect.
3. Profiles of Future Attendees
Attendees appreciate getting to know people before the event. Focusing on attendees helps to let them know they are valued.
4. Interviews of Attendees, Speakers, Organizers
Written interviews can be as easy as emailing 5 or 6 questions to the right person adding an introductory paragraph and posting in question/answer format.
5. Video Interviews of Attendees, Speakers, Organizers
Grab your camera and ask a few questions. Uploading video to blogs has never been easier.
