News on Virtude: presentation to bloggers on Avistar.

(…) I also thought about doing something like these before-and-after shows: a person could send the link of her blog, we’d talk about briefing, objectives, I would help the person to reform the site and we could show the results.

Avistar is the largest birdwatchers’ fair in Latin America. It occurs every year in May at Villa Lobos Park in São Paulo. There’s winning photo exhibition, many exhibitors related to ecotourismo, products, meeting, activities for children. In the three-day event about 12 thousand people circulate. (Especially the park goers who are curious about the flag.)

The maestro of all this is Guto Carvalho. The work of this man put the birdwatching in the country’s cultural agenda.

One of the activities of the congress will be a panel for bloggers. Theoretically, experienced people will talk about techniques, tools, work methods. I did not think to participate, because in fact I still do not know if Virtude is going to work, and I’m not experienced as a blogger.

But Guto invited, I was frightened, Cris told me he would be ther to hold my hand or make the presentation if I chicken out, then I accepted.

I have not decided the issue yet. I can talk about the way I built Virtude in WordPress, plugins, or I can talk about site planning and management ofvolunteers. I also thought about doing something like this transformation programs: a person could send the link of her blog, we’d talk about briefing, objectives, I would help the person to reform the site and we could show a before and after. :o)

Best of all: with this story we triggered an old idea, but now it seems to gather the information needed – a free mini-magazine to be distributed during Avistar. Circulation of 2,500 or 5,000 copies. I talk about it in the next post.
