Anyone that has meet me at a conference knows I see myself as a conference junkie. The word conference is good enough reason to consider if I should attend. I was a regular at Problogger conferences before I decided to get more serious with my family history research. This leads me to the first of this series on the reasons why you should attend conferences. What is the first reason to attend?
While going to Problogger conferences I meet Donna Moritz some years ago. Donna is a social media strategist, visual marketing specialist, blogger and speaker. In particular she is great at visual stuff for social media.
Donna now writes for the leading social media sites, travels the world giving presentations to conferences all while running her social media business. Her winning blog is frequently mentioned in top 10 global social media blog lists as one you must read. With over 10,000 followers on Facebook, not counting her groups, 49,500+ followers on Twitter, 226.2k monthly unique viewers at Pinterest and others you can see Donna has many fans.
Recently Donna helped me with a problem I mentioned on her Facebook group page Visual Content Creators. For me quick bits of personalised help are priceless.
