2nd Annual Bloggers Conference

View Comments

This weekend will be the 2nd Annual Bloggers Conference here in Puerto Rico. I attended last year and the event was very popular. There were about 150 attendees and I got to meet, for the first time, a lot of the local Blogging and Twitter community.

This year, I'm going to be presenting along the lines of a previous talk I did on Using Twitter and Blogs to Generate More Revenue. In it, I'll be presenting the business value of blogs, some of my personal recommendations on things to do,/avoid, using blogs for SEO (search engine optimization), how to get started, and measuring results.

(I've got the first time slot of the day, so I'll have to think of something to make sure the audience is awake [and stays that way!]. Thoughts?)
