My New Type-A Conference Friends

Has a week already passed since Type-A conference in Atlanta??  I guess that’s what happens when you jump right back into life with 2 feet running at full speed.

What did I learn at Type-A?  This was my first time at this conference and I was actually pleasantly surprised at how small and intimate it was.  I was always running into the same group of ladies and feel like I really got to bond with many of them.  For the learning side of things I feel like my expectations are altered from what they should be.  I’ve been blogging since 2007 and I know a lot of the basic and intermediate things about social media.  Heck, I could probably have taught some of the sessions myself…but I’ve never really thought about that before.

  • I did learn a few things about Google+ and why I should embrace it, even if I don’t really like it.
  • I was motivated to update my media kit; which I promise to finish before the end of the week.
  • I learned what semantic markup is and know that I need to study up on it to see if it really matters.

Yep, that’s about my only real take-homes from the conference.  I did meet some great new brands and hopefully started some relationships with them.  I also made some new friends and hung out with some that I’m met before.  Perhaps you know them….

Friends you should follow:
