    I was happy to attend the first one last year, but will miss this one because I'll be teaching my How to Write a Nonfiction Book in 90 Days workshop. Get there early for good parking and be sure to check out the great food from the vendors.

    One of the highlights for me at the Orange County event was its location at The Orange County Register. I blogged about the tour of the pressroom and the irony of a newspaper hosting the 4th largest Social Media Day meetup in the country! Just wanted to share and welcome any and all comments: http://socialmediaintention...­

    By the way, you all ROCK. Thank you for showing interest in social media in Orange County. We're less than 24 hours away and we are now the FIFTH BIGGEST #smday gathering in the world.

    The response to this event is really quite amazing so far!...quite unlike what I've seen of late in interest at other events. Do you mind Renee sharing a little about it's own promotion within social media and other ways? Might be a great study for us that are looking to utilize social media effectively.

    Kristina, thanks for asking. The details are still forming, but we will definitely have speakers and food trucks. Most of the socializing and food will happen outside during all three hours of the event. Speakers will talk indoors in two 45-minute sessions with some networking time before, after and between the sessions.
