Only a few more sleeps until I’m attending Nuffnang Blogopolis 2012. I can’t tell you how excited I am. OK, yes, I can. I AM EXCITED!
I think I’m as prepared as I can be but I’m still dithering over the breakout sessions.
As a newbie blogger, I need help with EVERYTHING. Katrina from the Block (love her!) and her The Media Maid blog design business is running one breakout class on Blog Design 101, which is on at the same time as SEO & Analytics for Dummies. This one might as well be titled “Kimba Must Attend”, such a gumby I am when it comes to SEO and analytics!
However, I’m really interested in blog design, too. I use a WordPress template but I’ve been toying with the idea of creating a Kimbalikes logo and incorporating this into my blog. Hmmm, what to do, what to do?! Luckily, Katrina has replied to my comment on her Blogopolis post, letting me know she’ll have a recap up on her blog. Oh, thank goodness. There’s one problem solved!
The next breakout session has The Ins & Outs of a Media Kit up against Creating a Brand for Your Blog. I think I would benefit equally from both of these sessions. I’m still undecided as to which session to attend, but I think I’m leaning towards learning how to create a media kit. No, maybe creating a brand would be better for me? Actually, I’m hoping I can get cloned as I’d love to attend both! This is valuable information I need to know! I’m really torn about this decision – anyone got any feedback or advice for me?!
The final breakout session is a panel about the opportunities gained from blogging, and a lesson on Blog Photography 101. As much as I’d love to attend the panel, I think I would benefit more from the photography session. I hope I won’t be embarrassed when I rock up with my little girly pink point and shoot Canon Ixus! I’m keeping my fingers crossed that the panel will be filmed and I’ll be able to catch up later.
I’m really looking forward to learning more about blogging and I’m hoping this newbie blog old dog can learn lots of new tricks. I’m also really looking forward to meeting many of the people I’ve connected with on Twitter and through our blogs, including some of my blogging idols. Nikki from Styling You told me she is excited to meet me – how cool is that?!
Are you attending Blogopolis? Do you keep accidentally typing Blogopolish like me? Have you decided which breakout classes you’re going to attend? Love to hear your advice and feedback!
Oh, and can’t wait to say hi at Blogopolis! I’ll be the one in the mad pants with a big smile!
