Blogger Relations Panel Convergence, May 22, 2008
My name is Kate and I’m a blogger
There is no “blogger relations”
Only  a  relationship
We’re all different
Why I blog … Three Reasons
1. Why? Ego
What works?  Flattery. http://www.mynameiskate.ca/2007/07/pitching-blogge.html
2. Why? Cool Toys
What works?  Products.
3. Why? Building a community
What works?  Benefit to my community
Results!
Results!
What doesn’t work? Poor fit.
What doesn’t work? Lots of Words.
Most important thing to remember Blogging is (likely) not a blogger’s day job.
How do you find us?
How do you know if we’re any good?
