Blogging Romance with Lorelle in San Francisco

Lorelle NewsI will be speaking at the Romance Writers of America San Francisco Chapter’s special event on Web Publishing for Authors at the Pyramid Alehouse, Brewery and Restaurant in Berkeley, California, on March 8, 2008, from 8:30 AM to noon. The program is open to the public but reservations are required with fees $25 for non-members reserving their seat before March 5.

You don’t have to be a romance writer to attend. The program is open to all writers who want to use web technology to boost their careers. The morning workshop will help you develop a website and blog to promote you and your work and establish your reputation as a professional writer and author. The program will cover online tips and techniques for authors to promote their books, enhance their online presence, and build a fan-base community using blogs, forums, podcasts, video, and other social media.

The program panel features myself, discussing blogging and the power of the blog as a promotional, networking, and fan-building tool, and promoting WordPress; Tom Johnson, an artistic marketing strategist covering design issues; and Rachelle Chase, an award-winning erotic romance author, business consultant, and host of Chatting with Chase.

I wrote The Art of the Artist Web Design Collaboration on the Blog Herald as an introduction for the event to help artists and writers see the potential a blog offers over a static website.

    Just curious, what exactly does this have to do with WordPress news and why is it appearing in my dashboard?

    @ Kissing Bandit:

    It is an event that I will be speaking at and I will be talking about WordPress. The post also includes information about the other WordPress-related events I and many WordPress experts will also be speaking at, if you are interested.

    As a long time volunteer and contributor to WordPress, my blog has the honor of inclusion in the WordPress dashboard feed. If this is your first visit to Lorelle on WordPress, welcome to my world of WordPress and blogging. :D

    Well welcome back to Cali Lorelle… I’d love to hit you up for some Indian food (and more great conversation) but unfortunately the day job means I’ll have to miss this conference.

    But thanks for the update… it did make me check my schedule. :)

    Ah man. If I was still in Cali, I would definitely join you at the Education event. But alas, I’m in NYC now.

    I hope the best for you and safe travels.

    @ Matt:

    Ah, too bad. But we will be together in Dallas. :D

    I think you should check out this site and share it at the Alliance for Distance Education in California Summit!

    @Lorelle: Is there a chance that you will ever be in a position to give a talk in the UK? I very much doubt I could get to an American event but if I knew there was a UK appearance on the cards I’d make every effort to attend.

    @ Tom:

    I’ll go anywhere to talk blogging and WordPress. :D Give me a reason and I’ll be there. Hint hint. ;-)
