As I mentioned in a previous email about 13 ways a reporter should use a beat blog, I’ve been toying with the idea of organizing a bloggers’ summit, where we can get together over lunch and chat about what’s working and what’s not.
What wisdom could you share with the group?
I’m penciling it in for noon on *Thursday, April 19* — leading up to VPA fun that weekend. I’m hoping to record our summit and take great notes, so we can distribute our insights to anyone who can’t attend.
Some questions to get us started:
» How do you build — and engage — your audience?
» How do you handle tough comments?
» What are your social media success stories?
» How do you see your blog / print relationship?
» What sort of tools would you like to learn (how to embed live chats, photo slideshows, video, source documents/PDFS)?
» How do you manage your time?
What other questions would you like addressed? Would you like to focus exclusively on a certain topic?
The more feedback I get from you now, the more useful our lunch will be!
Are you in?
