Today I’m presenting a workshop at the 2012 AgChat Agvocacy 2.0 conference hosted by the AgChat Foundation in Kansas City, MO. There’s a host of great sessions this week helping farmers and ranchers learn to better use online tools for agriculture advocacy. If you want to follow along, be sure to watch the #ACFC12 stream on Twitter.
I’m pretty fortunate to be working with two great gals in the world of Agriculture Bloggers.
- Katie Pinke (Blog, Facebook, Twitter) is from North Dakota, where her family is involved in numerous farming operations and she works with farmers across the state with the ND Department of Agriculture.
- Jennifer Keller (Blog, Facebook, Twitter) is a mom from Ohio, plowing through life, who works with the National Pork Producers Council.
- (And just in case you’re new to my blog…) I’m from an Arkansas ranching family, still trying to figure out where I want to be in life (read about it here). I’m currently a student at the University of Tennessee, working on a Master’s degree. You can find me on Twitter and Facebook as well.
Be sure to check out their blogs and pages to hear more of their story and great tips they always share.
In our workshop we’ll be giving tips for bloggers who are getting started, whether you’ve been blogging for a few days or a year, you may feel like there are some tips out there to help get you off the launch pad. We will try to help with that.
Topics we will be covering include:
- Blog design and topics
- Writing skills and tips
- “Blogstorming” (brain storming topics for your posts)
- Skills for sharing and building an audience
If you have any questions about blogging, feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
