SNAP – Creating a Presense

These are notes from the classes I took at SNAP and are obviously the things that stood out to me, things I want to implement, etc – check out their blog for more info on the sessions, better pictures, fun times, etc.

This class was on “Creating a Presence in a Big Blogger World” – - it was a panel and the speakers were:
Cassity – Remodelaholic
Jamie Rose
Sarah Rae
Brooke Walker with KSL 5 (tv station)
I actually am going to divide my notes up and post the TV and newspaper media stuff tomorrow – - today I will focus on the presentation from Cassity which was about making your blog stand out.
Do you think it’s funny that the picture I took was only of my diminishing bag of candy…..

    Thank you for sharing these notes! It is a bummer that I was swallowed by blogging NOW rather than 5 years ago, so it is good to hear what is important to have a successful blog for new bloggers!

    Let the journey BEGIN!
