Blogalicious 2012 Tech Advisor

It will be more than a privilege to help the Blogalicious team make this year’s conference more personal. What’s more personal than the technology we use everyday to enhance our lives? All that to say I look forward to helping attendees leverage technology to get the most out of this year’s conference.


Some of the ways I plan to add some “techstyle” (get it) to Blogalicious 2012:


Conference App

Hate digging in your swag bag to find out what’s going on and where? This year, I will be helping Blogalicious attendees get all their speaker/presenter and event information right on their smartphone. The full conference schedule, viewing presenter bios, and customizing your own schedule will be just a few of the features for this year’s app.


QR Code Conference Badges

QR Codes at blogging conferences can do a ton of things from helping attendees quickly view brand websites blogs, to swapping contact information with other attendees. I have something pretty cool planned for those QR Codes that will be on your badges, so get those QR Code apps ready, you may just come away with some dope tech gear.


Conference “IT Guy”

During your matriculation at this year’s conference, I will be the guy helping attendees connect (and stay connected) to a decent WiFi signal to send out all those #Blogalicious12 tweets; making sure speakers/presenters have all they need for a dope presentation, and overall roaming the conference answering any tech questions you may have.


So don’t be afraid to reach out and ask away. I shouldn’t be too hard to spot – I’ll be one of the two guys at the conference, lol!
Send 2 Lucky Pinners to #Blogalicious12: Vote for the “Make It Personal” Pinterest Contest Winners!

Updated: Congratulations to @Brandi_Powers and @WendysHat for submitting the winning boards! We’re looking forward to seeing you both in Vegas.

Thanks so much to all who participated. Remember, in all that you do, #MakeItPersonal!

We’re so excited to see the outcome of our first-ever Pinterest contest!

As promised, here are the participating Pinterest Boards for our Blogalicious “Make It Personal” Pinterest Contest.  Kudos to all who participated!  The contestants definitely thought inventively when creating their boards and bringing this year’s  “Make It Personal” theme to life.

According to the rules, we are to post the top boards here on our site to let you, the Blogalicious community, decide which 2 contestants will be attending #Blogalicious12 in Vegas for FREE! It’s a good thing we’ve decided to put the vote in your hands, because  our Ambassadors would not be able to choose…

When it came to our favorite boards we looked for 2 main features:

  1. The #Blogalicious12 Pin it to Win it Graphic, to share the “opportunity” love.
  2. The #Blogalicious12 and #MakeItPersonal hashtags in the description of their board and pins.

Other things that appealed to us were inspirational quotes and sneak peeks into each board-creator’s personality.

And so, without further delay ladies and gents, here are the links to these fabulous boards!
