Minnesota Blogger Conference: 140 bloggers and one dejected Gopher fan September 12, 2010

Shareology was thrilled to be at the very first Minnesota Blogger Conference held September 11, 2010 at CoCo St. Paul.  Great info, great speakers, great networking.

No, it's not a war zone: It's 4th Street.....



Can you spot Shareology above?   Here’s a hint — she’s drawn to the color orange lately.

Shareology gets asked a lot what to use for a beginning blogger.  Given the learning curve on wordpress, I’ve been known to suggest blogger or blogspot.  After sitting in on Julio Ojeda-Zapata’s session, I now know that Posterous, Tumblr and SquareSpace are key platforms. 

Can bloggers and PR people co-exist?

Greg Swan and Tony Saucier add a certain j’ne sais quoi as only they can do….. 

Finally, towards the final presentation, a sad, dejected figure appeared at the back of the room.  It appears the Gophers had the audacity to not win to a team from (horror upon horrors!) South Dakota..let’s all be extra kind to @MNHeadhunter in the next few days…. 

did I mention Shareology is from....South Dakota?

    Hi Kay! I sat behind you in a session and was going to introduce myself afterward, but someone else scooped in and grabbed your attention. I’m certain we will officially meet in person one of these days. 🙂
