Note: Just had a little makeover on my family blog and I’m loving it. It’s so cute, clean and fresh! Go over and take a look. Thanks to Kristina at One Happy Mama for the makeover. Check out the cute little Happy Art on the sidebar. She made a special Choose Joy one for me! Check out her design blog here.
So I need your help.
On March 9-10 I will be participating in the Story@Home Conference being sponsored by Cherish Bound and Family Search in Salt Lake City. First of all – I’d love any of you who live in the area to join me and even if you don’t live in the area you may want to check it out and book a flight to Salt Lake City!
The conference is all about telling your story – whether it is through blogging, storytelling or family history.
“No matter how you tell your stories – through your family history, at your child’s bedside, on your blog, or from a stage – your stories matter. Join us for a conference that will change the way you see your stories and the world, and help you connect in new ways with those you cherish most.
Workshops and performances by award-winning storytellers, performers and speakers, will help you explore ways to use the power of story in your home. You’ll be able to record your own story, start on some research to learn more about your family’s history, get started on a blog and learn how to tell your story through social media.”
There is going to be all kinds of amazing information shared from lots of amazing people. There are going to be some pretty big name bloggers there too including C.Jane Kendrick of C Jane, Enjoy It. She will be presenting a keynote address. Other speakers include Justin Banks of BlogFrog, and Rachael Herrscher of Today’s Mama.
There will be lots of other awesome speakers and breakouts – including me!
I am part of the blogging track and I will be speaking on “Blog Your Passion and Grow Your Blog.” And that is where your help comes in.
As I have been working on my presentation I have come up with some questions for you as blog readers. If you wouldn’t mind taking just a few minutes and answering a few questions in my comments section I would be forever so grateful! Feel free to answer only one of the questions or all of them. I appreciate any help and input you can give me.
1. What attracts you to a blog enough to add it to your RSS Reader or subscribe via email. What makes you visit and revisit a blog over and over again?
2. What causes you to stop reading a blog?
3. What are your favorite type of blogs to read?
4. How many blogs do you subscribe too or read on a regular/daily basis? How much time do you spend on a daily/weekly basis reading blogs?
5. Do you blog? What do you blog about? Why do you blog?
