Press Release: Bathroom Blogfest 2009 Draws 20 Bloggers & First Sponsor

For Immediate Release: October 19, 2009

BATHROOM BLOGFEST 2009 DRAWS 20 BLOGGERS TO FOCUS ON THE RECESSION & CLEANLINESS IN OVERLOOKED SPACES
From Behind Closed Doors, Writers Direct Their Expertise to the Topic as
Blogfest Welcomes Its First Sponsor

Kinnelon, NJ – The 2009 Bathroom Blogfest, now in its fourth year, brings together 20 bloggers from the U.S., Canada, the UK and India who will post at least once on some aspect of the theme: “Flush the Recession and Plunge Into Forgotten Spaces.” A blogfest gathers writers who direct their posts around a single subject while making the subject relevant to their readers. Between October 26 and 28, these experts in marketing, customer experience and service, public relations, library sciences, life, retail—toilets and bathrooms—will call attention to improving the overall bathroom experience.

"Kaboom, the Blogfest’s first sponsor, will play a part in some of the blogs," said Christine Whittemore, who manages the Blogfest. “The brand is adventuresome and innovative, volunteering to take its chances with this social networking experience,” said the chief simplifier of Simple Marketing Now, Kinnelon, N.J. “Kaboom has sent its cleaning products to nine writers whom we expect to report on their findings. Some may also add Kaboom giveaways/contests to their coverage.” Information about the products reviewed and given away as prizes can be found at http://www.BathroomBlogfestDeal.com.

Along with a sponsor, Whittemore added to this year’s initiative a Bathroom Blogfest Facebook Fan Page and way to keep up via Twitter: @BathroomBlogfes. In addition, to monitor the conversation, photos and posts, look for the tag “#ladiesrooms09” on flickr, del.icio.us, Technorati, Twitter and Google.

The Bathroom Blogfest began in 2006 as the brainchild of Stephanie Weaver, Experienceology author and consultant, and Susan Abbott, a business consultant and consumer researcher in Toronto. “They wanted to generate awareness for bloggers passionate about the customer experience at a time when blogging was more experimental. The Bathroom Blogfest created a forum for focusing on spaces that are not a subject of conversation, which they should be,” added Whittemore.

Whittemore believes that today’s bloggers do it because it’s fun and they feel strongly about sharing their ideas for better bathroom experiences. She observes that retailers ignore the bathroom as a possible selling space and that most ignore it altogether. One of the bloggers added that it’s a way for her to potentially create more impact than she might with a single post while it introduces her readers to both a new subject and community of bloggers.
