Scicurious has written a very nice howto giving concrete advice about blogging a conference: "How To Blog a Conference". Lots and lots of good ideas and advice in her post. I admire anyone with the discipline to take notes and do interviews at a conference. It's all I can do to keep up with the schmoozing.
But I would say that the process Sci followed is an excellent strategy for networking and training yourself as an effective communicator of your own science.
