Strap on your baby backpack – See you at the Blogcademy!

Screen shot 2013-02-14 at 3.39.05 AMMe and my Blogcademy coffee cup cozies will be hanging out at Blogcademy in Los Angeles April 6-7! I haven’t taken a sit-down-and-take-notes-class for over ten years. Will my hand-writing still be legible!?

Screen shot 2013-02-14 at 3.44.05 AMWhile blogging isn’t my main gig, I definitely enjoy it as a way to connect with you guys and to keep you and myself inspired. I’m excited to hear what other folks have to say about it and to learn some tips from the pros!

Blogcademy is actually in Portland before LA. Portland is March 30-31. If you want a chance to win a scholarship to either location, you need to enter like… TODAY. Sorry for the late warning! I wasn’t paying any kind of attention! I think you’ll be able to pull it off, though! :) Go to this FAQ page and scroll down for instructions. Get to it!

    I am pondering going! My blog is soooo 2010. It’s time to enter the modern decade.

      My impression is that there might also be discussion about social media and growing your numbers organically….which I am also into!

    I would absolutely LOVE to go to one of these things someday! I have a feeling it would be a good place not only to learn more about the blogging itself (like you, my blog is a sidenote to my art), but about running a small business in general. I have SO much to learn when it comes to social media and gaining numbers! The only thing I can really say for myself social media-wise is that Jon Cryer follows me on Twitter. Duckie!! ♥ Not sure I can beat that. Though perhaps the Blogcademy gals can teach me to interact in the least spazzy way possible- what better reason to grant a scholarship than THAT?! ;)

    Can’t wait to hear all about it!

      Social media is so weird. It’s like, ok, you have a million poeple following you, but if you sell a product, it doesn’t mean that a million people will buy your stuff. So it’s almost like, what’s the worth of marketing? IS there worth? I dunno! heheeh.

      Social media has come really organically to me with “Twinkie Chan,” but I have found it a million times more difficult with Yummy You, maintaining both, differentiating both, etc. I will mostly be interested to learn about how to make myself inspired to do more with the YY social media!

        Yes!! Exactly!! Just recently (literally the last few days!), a set of Breakfast Club illustrations I did and posted back in December on tumblr went from around a hundred or so “notes” to over eight thousand! I have no idea why the sudden surge in love, but I’ll take it :) Either way, it didn’t take long to realize that just because eight thousand people liked/reblogged my work, didn’t mean that even ONE would necessarily buy it. Social media is so weird- in the beginning, you get so excited for the attention, only to realize that attention doesn’t always equal sales or even a second glance. Sales aren’t everything, of course, but when this is your job, it comes in handy, haha ;) I’d love to learn more about social media in general, and how to best utilize it to benefit both my job AND my clients :)
