This will be the second year for iSummit in Orlando and my first time attending. As I do at most of these events, I intend to liveblog as much as I can here on Social Media Orlando.

Hybrid Publishing – The Cult of Personality

It’s no secret that Social Media alone isn’t enough to provide success for publishing.

I’m excited to be a part of the Social Media Conference at Rollins College in Orlando this weekend.

Lots of great speakers on two tracks and at a price you can afford, especially considering that it includes lunch.

Mommy Blogger Follow Up

For those who remain interested in last month’s meeting topic – Mommy Bloggers – there is an interesting column this week at the New York Times Magazine. The subject is Mommy Blog Empowerment and it covers a lot of the same territory we went over in the meeting. …media observers give women who blog short shrift, but clearly advertisers don’t. “These sponsorships power these conversations,” Stone says. “They completely support and validate women as writers.”…
