Want a blog? Have a blog? Want to make a better blog?

Make plans now to attend the Central Florida Blogger Conference. It is perfect for beginning bloggers and seasoned pros. Whether you blog as a hobby, for your business or as a public relations professional, you’ll be sure to learn new strategies to build your brand, influence in your community, and make new friends.

And bring your computer along, as wi-fi is available campus-wide!

In the Morning

Learn specific steps to build a better blog, regardless if you are an old pro or just starting out. Listen to bloggers who have “been there, done that” and have discovered the best practices for blogging in a variety of fields: fitbloggers, fashion bloggers, foodies, travel bloggers, etc. Generate more page views, bring down your bounce rate, raise your Google page rank, and become an influencer in social media. If all that sounds too technical, we have a sessions for beginner bloggers that will translate it all for you too!
In the Afternoon

Discover tips to publicize your blog. Learn how to navigate the world of Twitter and Facebook and make them work for you. Gain more readers and name recognition through “check ins” and maybe even go viral on Youtube. Learn how to monetize your blog through banner ads, affiliate networks, partnerships with local businesses, selling products/services and more.
In the Evening

Meet and greet, mix and mingle at the Social Mixer at Enzian Bar. Here’s your chance to not only network with fellow bloggers (maybe find a mentor?) but to also connect with the PR and Marketing professionals who will be there mingling. They are there to meet YOU and learn how to get their clients on to your blog!

Well over a year ago, I set out on a mission to make the Florida Creatives website a more usable and self-discoverable website. I think it started when someone looking at the site asked "Are you guys on Twitter?", and when I thought about how to point that out to him, I found it just was not obvious.
