I’m presenting a session on Blog Monetization (AKA How to make the big bucks) today at Bloggy Boot Camp Chicago. Follow along on Twitter at #BBCCHI. I’ve got three hours of material for a 30 minute session, but then again I have a complicated relationship with time. I’ll either have to go through my deck at a pace of 40 seconds per slide or, hmmm,
I’m screwed how will this work?
I indulged myself with one slide full of housing metaphors- build a strong foundation for your blog by providing great content on a consistent basis (at least 2-3 times a week), and paint with a broad brush, that is, use social media to build relationships and drive traffic.
I was excited to revisit data I’d collected earlier this year and presented at the Blissdom Blog Conference with Esther Crawford, Sommer Poquette and Barbara Jones. Several people completed the survey after our Blissdom presentation, so for Bloggy Boot Camp I was crunching numbers for 100 bloggers. Good stuff, even if it’s not scientifically valid.
Yes, I plan to wear my toolbelt again. It’s just easier, plus I’m still looking for bloggers to sign my shoes. Pictures, soon. I promise.
I’m going to follow-up on my presentation with a Skype chat (likely text-based) on August 26 at 10 AM Central Time. Ping me if you’d like to join in.
