Day three of the conference turned out to be the most informative. We had open discussions on how to cultivate online relationships as well as how to stay safe and what should be private vs. public in the blogging world. As far as monetizing a blog goes, we learned what big marketing and PR reps are looking for, as well as what small businesses are looking for from bloggers. In the above photo, on the right, is Erin Lane, a PR rep for Scandanavian Child, one of the sponsors of the conference. Her presentation focused a lot on the art of making a pitch. I've never done that, but who knows what the future will hold?
I'm going to leave you with some photos I took of the beach during one of our breaks from learning, networking, and socializing. I will definitely be returning to the conference when it comes back next year, and in the following weeks I will be using my blog to introduce you to some of the wonderful ladies I met on my trip.
