Amy Gahran, a conversational media consultant, content strategist, and freelance writer/editor has created a post about blogging to a conference blog, or blogging about a conference, and she puts up some great points to remember.

- Handouts and online resources.
- Extending discussion.
- Personal tales.
- Video and audio.
- Tracking coverage.
- Setting the stage for in-person discussion.
A great read, so check out The Right Conversation for details on each point.
