Being Campy Tonight
Tonight I’ll be speaking at WordPress Camp amongst many other cool presenters (including Rebecca Bollwitt, Bruce Byfield and Greg Andrews). I’m looking forward to hearing the other bloggers speak and am sure it will be a very inspiring & educational evening!
Putting my talk together was a bit more fraught with drama than I would have liked… Yesterday, when I was almost done writing my notes for the presentation (and lovely they were, of course) – I got booted out of my Word Docx (not a big fan, btw) – only to lose the document forever. Yip, the file was deemed “corrupted” and try as I might to recover it, it was gone. Gone babe gone.
Suffice it to say, I was not a happy camper.
But, I’ve now recreated my piece and am feeling far way more optimistic.
So, what will I be talking about? “Blogging and Social Media”.
While I don’t profess to be an expert blogger (far from it) – I do love talking. And I think the Tazzu folks are wonderful so here I am, or will be, or by the time you read this, already was…
I’ll be addressing some tactics on how to write more engaging posts and promote the best ones using social media sites. It’s a 20 minute presentation, so I won’t be able to cover everything, but I will be touching on some important subjects and am excited.
I’ll be referencing a whole bunch of posts and blogs. I’ve bookmarked these (and some other excellent related articles) on Del.icio.us.
I have learned even more about blogging and post promotion through this research than I did when I first began blogging. Hope you will too.
I am also thinking about posting my Powerpoint with an audio track on Myplick (or another slidesharing tool that can easily sync an audio track – ideas?). Let me know what you think about that.
And please feel free to suggest any articles that helped you become a better blogger or better promote your posts.
