My Blogging Tips Sessions at PodCamp Montreal 2009

I had a great time at the second edition of PodCamp Montreal. I am happy with all the sessions I went to. The exchanges provide great food for thought both from the presenters and the participants. People discussed several ways to stay authentic and transparent in CT Moore‘s talk about transparency and personal brand. It was fun that it used Donald Drape as a reference character.

My two own sessions went well. I believe that you should review your blog 3 to 4 times a year and make adjustments. Preparing my Top Tips for Better Blogging session gave me the opportunity to review what I am doing. To answer Julien Smith’s question: doing it helps them and me.

I am also thrilled that our “Top Blogueur” panel was about design bloggers. Social media unconferences are not only for the earlier adopters of social media. Everyone is welcome. But people outside the social media crowd seem hesitant to participate and even more to submit a presentation. Having speakers that are not part of the usual circle is showing that things are changing. If you speak French, you can watch the panel here.

The sessions were recorded on live streaming, which is not always reliable. A little bit more than half of my presentation was recorded. Since it is the first half, you will not be lost.

  3. Wow, this is really great Kim. I so wish they had recorded the second half of your presentation! I’d LOVE to listen to the entire piece and hear all of your great advice.

  4. Morgan, I am sad too. I will probably create a post or two with the missing content.

  5. Hi Kim,

    I had the chance to watch both of your conferences via live streaming. We did loose some part of the conference a couple of times, but it wasn’t too bad. But, of course, there’s nothing like “the real thing”, but it’s a very interesting option for those of us who can’t attend the conference.

    You had some very interesting points and I learned a lot from what you said. You even inspired me to suggest a conference at some point in a near future. 🙂

    Oh, and I absolutely agree that there should be much more non-social-media blogs in the Québec blogosphère. 😉

    Thanks again for your time!

  6. Thanks, Fanie. You have 11 months to think about a topic for the next PodCamp. Keep up the good work. I spotted a few items that I like on your art vs craft blog.
