I am so excited to be speaking on a panel at #20SBSummit with a couple of other swell blogger-lady-gals on creating community through smart content and blogger voice magic.
Jenn Bollenbacher and Molly Ford will be my blog-happy cohorts as we discuss some of our experiences in the blogosphere and offer up some actionable tips for newbie bloggers to grow their audience and find their niche.
Our official panel description:
Laying the Foundation // Creating a Community Around Your Blog
Want a dedicated following for your blog? Then quality writing and core topics are critical to your success. Bloggers Jenn Bollenbacher, Katie Laird and Molly Ford share how focusing on the fundamentals of blogging—structure, layout and consistency—will result in a compelling point of view that will shape your writing and attract loyal readership.
Last time I was in Chicago was also for a blogger gathering, but for Blogher (see my plethora of posts here). It was a swell time!
I got to meet Jenny of LJCFYI bloggy fame (love that gal).
Played like a kid again at the fab Chicago Children’s Museum. It was a swell time.
Let’s make some more Chicago blogging memories together! Get that #20SBSummit ticket and make me an even happier happykatie!
