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. This was the original whiteboard sketch I came up with:

monochrom #26-34: Ye Olde Self-Referentiality
A semi-entertaining release performance
Presented at Urban ReThink in Orlando, FL
625 E Central Blvd, Orlando, FL 32801
December 16, 2010, 8:00 PM

The phatzine monochrom #26-34 (Goat of 1k Young) is an impossibility in an impossible universe -- an unpeculiar mixture of proto-aesthetic fringe work, pop attitude, subcultural science and political activism. 500 pages (67 ounces) of outrageous printed bestiality. And we plan to thoughtfully present it at Urban ReThink... in the Most Central of all possible Floridas!

But what is monochrom?

monochrom is a magazine object appearing in telephone book format, which is published by the art/tech group of the same name. monochrom came into being in the mid-1990s as a fanzine for cyberculture, science, theory, cultural studies and the archaeology of pop culture in everyday life. Its collage format is reminiscent both of the early DIY fanzines of the punk and new wave underground and of the artist books of figures such as Dieter Roth, Martin Kippenberger and others. With a great deal of forced discontinuity, a cohesive potpourri of digital and analog subversion is pressed between the covers of monochrom. Each issue is an unnostalgic amalgam of 125 years of Western counterculture cocked, aimed and ready to fire at the present. It is a Sears catalog of subjective and objective irreconcilability -- the Godzilla version of the conventional coffee table book.
