Bathroom Blogfest 2011 urges bloggers to ‘Climb Out’

Bathroom Blogfest 2011 urges bloggers to ‘Climb Out’
October 17, 2011

KINNELON, N.J.—The 2011 Bathroom Blogfest, now in its sixth year, brings together 33 bloggers from the U.S., Canada, Dubai and the United Kingdom to address the theme “Climbing Out.” 

Between October 24 and 28, experts in marketing, customer experience and service, public relations, library sciences, museums, home & interior design, life, retail, building materials and flooring will call attention to improving the overall bathroom experience for end users via their 34 blogs during Bathroom Blogfest 2011. The FCnews’ blog will also be contributing.

“We were inspired to use the “Climbing Out” theme by the sewer pot of mixed economic signals, unfocused political agendas, and undifferentiated conventional experiences that surround us globally,” said Christine B. Whittemore, chief simplifier of Simple Marketing Now, Kinnelon, N.J., who manages the Bathroom Blogfest. “By calling attention to inspired examples of ‘climbing out’, we can reinforce the value associated with being creative and responsive to specifiers, clients, patrons and consumers.”

The Bathroom Blogfest began in 2006 as the brainchild of Stephanie Weaver, Experienceology author and consultant, and Susan Abbott, 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 end-user related experiences that often get overlooked,” added Whittemore. “As an event it builds relationships and conversations about an intensely compelling topic and demonstrates how universal the relevance and appeal is regardless of the industry.”

In honor of Bathroom Blogfest 2011, Whittemore and fellow participant Nora DePalma, principal of O’Reilly/DePalma, Atlanta, Ga., will co-host #KBTribeChat, a weekly Twitter discussion for kitchen and bath industry companies and professionals, on Wednesday, Oct. 26 from 2pm to 3pm EST. The Twitter chat will explore ‘Climbing out and rethinking the bathroom.’
