Hello everyone! This month we have an awesome guest presenter Ellie Snow. She will be covering her experience as a blog curator for her very popular Mint Design Blog (mintdesignblog.com). She also runs her own stationary design studio, and we absolutely love her work! It will be an awesome treat to hear about her ideas on the topic of "Blog Curation" from a designers perspective.
So if you want to learn more about running a successful blog, or contributing content as a designer to other blogs, this will be a great Meetup for you.
Presentation Topic: Blog Curation with Ellie Snow
• Why blog: why you should, how it can help you get your foot in the door
• Starting a Blog: when to post, what to post, etc.
• Promoting your blog
Learn how blogging can help achieve your goals, whether you've got a business, want to start one, or want to get into a niche industry. You'll have the basics on how to get started and then promote your work. And if the whole idea of blogging overwhelms you, you'll have an outline (via a handout) of how to use the blogosphere to your business' or personal advantage.
Hand-out 1: Submitting your work to bloggers
Hand-out 2: Blogger Etiquette
Tips & Technology: None
For this Meetup we will not be doing a T&T. However we may open the floor for anyone who wants to share their blog(s) or design work.
As always we will be providing quality craft beer, drinks and pizza!
