session: Blogging and Pinterest and Google+, Oh My!, Sunday, July 1, 9:45 AM
How did you get involved with blogging?
I started blogging in 1997 partially as a hobby, partially to explore a new technology. My first podcast was in 2004/2005. I’ve always been an early adopter and emerging technology specialist, so publishing online / digital / social media was a natural progression.
What’s your favorite technology to help you blog/write/tweet/edit?
I am a complete Google+ fangirl. While I know and use all major platforms and tools, this one serves all my needs
What blogs do you read regularly?
