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
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.....
