Are you anxious to start a blog but are not sure which site - such as WordPress, Typepad, or blogger – you should use? Maybe you have business strategies that call for social media integration to your current corporate website but want to understand the best way to do it?
On November 17, 2009, the group Social Media Breakfast – Madison will be having a meetup with two very different individuals who hope to achieve the same goal.
Get you up to speed on social media integration and blogs.
What do you want to learn about blogs?
Preston hails from Madison and is one of the creators of In My Backyard. in my backyard is a directory social site that brings freelancers and entrepreneurs together. One cool feature after you complete your profile is that it automatically posts your profile to Twitter.
Preston will be covering WordPress Blogs – How to build them right.
Preston is passionate about far reaching change in how we communicate. His strong and continuing focus remains creating tools that extend human capabilities for transparently easy creation and collaborative, richly interactive use of diverse media to communicate, teach, and explain. He enables teams to build “stuff” to communicate, collaborate, teach, learn, and play. His current focus is transaction cost deflation, commons strategy, and imby.info. His Google bio reads:
I’m passionate about far reaching change in how we communicate. I seek to tap into the largely unrealized power of emerging technologies to bring that about. There is much to be done.
My interests evolve, but a strong and continuing focus remains creating tools that extend human capabilities for transparently easy creation and collaborative, richly interactive use of diverse media to communicate, teach, and explain.
I work to build teams and connect with others similarly engaged in this work. Where possible I try to extend and strengthen collaborative models for harnessing individual, small team, and small business innovators’ energy and drive in this process as I believe strongly in the efficiency and effectiveness of small groups in creating value.
Integration of social media tools and websites
Jeremy Fall – The Undev – www.theundev.com is our other featured speaker for the morning. Learn some best practice strategies for integration of social media onto existing websites. Plan ahead for a new website so that you will be ready to use social media such as blogs with it. Bring your questions and see what you can take back to work with you.
Jeremy is a problem solved and can be found fixing less than ideal situation that other less experienced programmers leave behind. He is also Co-Owner and Developer of Conference Hubs (business conferencing and voicemail services), and Co-Owner and Developer of AudioBoard (a FaceBook application that allows people to post Audio Messages to your Feed). He’s what many would call a serial entrepreneurialist. He blogs at The Undev.
If you happen to look up Jeremy on Facebook, try out his new Audio Message for his facebook feed. This is an application that lets you leave a phone message that posts to your facebook wall. Very useful.
And did I mention we have a coffee and bagel sponsor. Don’t miss this one. The date is November 17, 2009 at 8:00 AM. Hence the coffee!
