I've actually known this for a few months now, but for some reason I've been lagging sharing the word despite my excitement. Has that ever happened to you? You are so excited about something that your mind goes numb? And then there's this need to express the news perfectly because it means more to you than posts about bacon or cheesecake.
Yes, news is bigger than bacon or cheesecake- this is big time stuff.
In July I'll be speaking at Dance/USA's 2012 Conference. Lauren Warnecke of Art Intercepts asked me to speak as part of a forum she's heading up about blogging and writing in the dance world. Some of the most successful dance writers, editors, bloggers, etc. in the U.S. will be part of this forum and I am doubly excited, triply humbled, and quadruply scared out of my mind that I'm going to say something incredibly stupid.
For instance, when she asked for my bio for the website, I forgot to include that I was a blogger.
Rule number one:
If you're going to talk about your blog, you should probably remember you have one.
And this is where I need your help:
Since the professional world is going to be listening to my thoughts about blogging, I feel like I should spruce up the blog layout a bit. I want to say thank you to all who have offered, I'm sorry I haven't taken up the offer, and I do love you; it's just that the thought of changing the format and look of this blog is overwhelming.
Where do I begin? What information do I need? What questions should I ask the blog designer?
So I ask you:
What tips would you give someone who is redesigning their blog?
You can see my bio and photo on Dance/USA's page.
They, thankfully, added my blog to it. Whew!
