club med ixtapa

Hurry, hurry , hurry. You must not miss out on the biggest giveaway ever in the history of blogging.

Jaden from SteamyKitchen.com and the kind folks at Club Med hosted a fabulous food blogger event this spring in the Bahamas. Now they’ve overworked themselves over the last few months to organize another amazing food blogger event, but this time, it’s available for everyone to join!

Food Blooger CampFood Blogger Camp at Club Med in Ixtapa, Mexico will feature workshops focusing on helping you improve and build your blogs to maximum potential. It’s an event open to anyone who is interested in learning more about building a successful blog.  Best of all, it’ll be held on the beautiful beachside Club Med location in Mexico, so we can all have our cocktails and study blogging together!

Seminar’s will be presented by: David Lebovitz, Jaden Hair, Michael & Donna Ruhlman, Matt Armendariz, Adam Pearson, Dianne Jacob, Elise Bauer and Us!

Both Todd and I will be giving a seminar on Multimedia and showing everyone all the different ways to amp up your blog, including a step by step production of a video! Here’s what we’ll be sharing:

  • Building a Better Blog with Multimedia – Learn how to make your blog more interactive and visually enticing by integrating various forms of Multimedia. With applications such as video, graphics, text, and podcasts, readers will be fully immersed in your content through the virtual multimedia experience. Technologies, softwares and applications will be discussed to give a basic understanding of different options to create all the sensory experiences on your blog. Basic tutorials on creating a video and podcasts will be demonstrated, as well as discussion on basic applications of other multimedia forms. Topics on editing and creating an editing workflow with PC and Mac will also be covered. We’ll do a quick demo of video and audio during the sit-down conference and immediately throw them on the editing bay. Participants will get a quick, but informative idea on how to create a workflow for video and podcast.

You can see the full agenda here at the Club Med Site

It’ll be held at Club Med Ixtapa Pacific, January 9-16 . Anyone is allowed to come, stay and join us for this amazing and educational week.

This looks like a terrific conference, a great lineup of writers in a wonderful location at the perfect time of year (when everyone needs a little sunshine). As a regional food blogger, covering restaurants in my little town, and hoping to expand and grow as the restaurants here get better and better (as the vineyards grow, so comes the cuisine), I’d love to win and learn. Which I obviously need from that huge run-on sentence wouldn’t you say? Give me a chance and I promise I won’t spend every single day sipping mai tais by the pool, but will actually GO to the conference, lol!

I’m a food blogger from IA with a focus on local foods and sustainability, and would love to see what comes out of me from Mexico, especially in such a vibrant community as Ixtapa! The education and enthusiasm from these participants would be just what the doctor ordered for my blog, and my life. Last year’s coverage made me crazy with jealousy. Please please :)

Also, I’m off for all of January already. :)

Diane, to meet you and your David, plus the other David, Jaden, Elise, Jaden, Matt and the others would be the ultimate experience for a FOODIE and food blogger who is still learning, and would kill for the opportunity to spend time with his favorite culinary heroes. I’ll spring for the first round of drinks if you and David cast your vote in my favor. Thanks so much for your consideration. Mark

Hi. I saw that “The Sweepstakes is governed by the laws of the state of New York.

Not to mention I have made your Sriracha recipe, and brought it to the 11th annual Beef Party, and it was a huge hit. I would love to learn from you both at the blogger camp.
