Vida Vegan Tech Seminar Series + Giveaway

As I mentioned here a few months back, Helen of Vegtastic! and I will be presenting a class at the inaugural Vida Vegan Tech Seminar Series (a part of Vida Vegan Con) happening Saturday, Nov. 3 at the beautiful downtown Seattle library.  And we’re quite pumped about it.

Our class is titled “Next-Level Social Media.” We’ll discuss how to cultivate your blog’s identity, to establish community, and we’ll breakdown a few emerging networks and give advice on how to stay on top of social media trends and decide whether or not they’re best for you and your blog. We’re also allotting a good amount of Q&A time.

This is the stuff I LOVE to talk about, geek out on and constantly learn more about. Helen and I are excited to present, and I think that all of the panels will be incredibly valuable. Check out the rundown of all the classes. Together, they all dive deeper into advanced aspects of social media and blogging, and will equip attendees with skills that can immediately be integrated into their blogs.

I am personally amped for the podcasting and video classes, as those are two things I want to delve into more in the future.

The class size is limited to 50 people, which is great in terms of everyone who registers being guaranteed a seat and having it feel more like a class and less like a con. But that also means that this event is going to sell out fast and if you’re not quick, you might be the left behind in a cloud of Myspace and Friendster dust.

The Vida Vegan Tech Seminar Series planners and I don’t want that to happen to you, and they generously gave me a ticket to give away to one lucky reader! Digital media is up there with veganism on my list of things I’m impassioned about and I know Helen feels the exact same way. We’d love to have a reader attend the seminar to learn more about these topics, and this is a way that you can attend (and get a delicious lunch from Veggie Grill!) for free.

To enter the contest, leave a comment below about the one tech-related topic you’d like to learn about most at the Tech Seminar Series. It could be ours (flattery will get you everywhere…but won’t guarantee your win) or maybe you too want to podcast one day. Or maybe you really want to learn some CSS. Whatever it is, let me know! I’ll pick a comment number at random on Wednesday, September 26th at noon, PST, and that individual will be the winner. I’ll also email you, in case you’re actually eating lunch or something. Non-vegans and non-Seattleites are also eligible to enter, too.

I hope to see you many of you there!

PS: Helen is also giving away a ticket to the Tech Seminar Series on her blog. Hop on over and enter there to double your chances of winning!

    I want to learn how to prioritize social media across platforms. How much time do I need to spend time on Google+? What is happening with the new MySpace (since you brought it up)? What new things don’t I even know about?

    interested in podcasting.

    I’d have to say shooting & integrating videos is the area I need most help in. However they all sound great!
