At our last YVR Bloggers event, we did a survey asking you what topics you would like to hear about at our upcoming events. The top 3 topics from the survey were: Building Your Readership, Marketing Your Blog & Monetizing Your Blog! So, we are happy to announce that we are bringing in expert speakers to address these issues over the next few events!
Our May event is at the cutting-edge Code Core (http://codecore.ca/) at Tinseltown Mall in Chinatown. There is free parking downstairs and Code Core is located on the second floor of Tinseltown right next to the food court. We have an amazing combination of speakers & performers - it will be a content rich event with lots of learning and networking opportunities in a very creative venue space! Chuck Anderson will be sharing 7 Steps to Monetize Your Blog, Grace Miles will be giving some tips about improving your Blog Design, Reena Venkatesh will be our Featured Blogger, and the Zing Zangs will be our Featured Performers for our May Meetup! Colin Easton will be sharing about The Stranger Project. Also, Karen McGregor will be giving each blogger a free ticket to her upcoming "Tripling Your Income through Speaking" Workshop. We are also going to have a Panel of Experts teaching the basics of coding for bloggers. Can't wait for this awesome evening of learning and connecting with other Vancouver bloggers.

Reena Venkatesh - Featured Blogger
Reena’s view of Interior Design is straight-forward. Her job is to help her clients create a space that reflects who they are. Whether it is a whole-house renovation or a single-room makeover, Reena believes that a successful interior, highlights the expertise of the designer, and more importantly, speaks to the personality of the client.
Reena helps her clients capture a one-of-a-kind look that goes beyond the retail identical looks of today’s home furnishings market. Her clients’ ideas, photos and family heirlooms often provide inspiration for their rooms. ”It’s all about making a house a home,” says Reena. “If I can realize my clients vision for a space and delight them with the results, then that’s a job well done.”

Whether it's traveling to Japan, running with super speed, dancing with rhinoceroses, or just the trouble in a kid's world itself - getting out of bed in the morning.

Trevor and Elliot go as "Commander Rock and Elliot the Ninja" in a superhero-themed album packed full of funny dialogue, wacky sound effects, different styles of music, and tons of special guests from all around the world.
