I’m in the news. You have to look very closely at the beginning and ending clips to see me though. I’m sitting next to my new friend Deena.
Today I am going talk about my favorite speaker at the conference. She’s not in the news clip but that’s okay. Lorelle VanFossen is cool, she deserves a whole TV show for herself! In addition to being cool she did a much better write up of the conference then I ever will.
I love seeing women in the techie/geek world. We were definitely a minority but we were there! Lorelle is great! I think she may have missed her calling as a public speaker/comedian though.
She spoke about creating “Kicking Ass Content Connections”. Some tips she offered on starting a blog conversation were to:
- not write for your 8th grade teacher (your blog does not have to be an essay)
- don’t blog the whole idea – leave some room for your readers to respond, incomplete thoughts allow your readers to respond.
- link back to other bloggers
- comment on other’s blogs
PS. For those of you wondering why I am using a blogger blog when I hype Word Press so much… there is a good reason for that. My Virtual Simplicity Word Press blog will be coming soon. I currently use Word Press for some of my clients and love it.
