We’re so excited to announce that this year’s Summit is kicking things off in a major way! Per usual, early check in and swag bag pick up will be happening from 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM Friday afternoon; but this isn’t the only thing we’ve got planned for you on Friday afternoon.
This year we’re hosting Blogging Workshop Open Hours! What’s that mean, you ask? We’re providing a space for attendees to gather together with their computers and notebooks, to swap ideas, resources, and advice with one another. [Check out Team HLB Member Courtney’s post on how much Blogging Workshop gatherings mean to her as a blogger to learn more about what you can expect from this session!]
But that’s not all: We’re so happy to announce that Derek Flanzraich, the CEO and Founder of one of our favorite online resources for all things healthy choices, Greatist, will be opening up our Workshop time by talking about his own experiences building a high-quality and trusted health and lifestyle resource from the ground up. You don’t want to miss all that Derek has to share, so be sure to set your alarms and Google calendars for a 2:30 PM start on Friday afternoon! (We figure most of you who are at the hotel by 2:00 PM, may want to head to check in right away when it opens and then head to Derek’s presentation.)
After Derek’s awesome discussion, the room will be open for attendees to seek input from their fellow bloggers, show off their favorite tools, share stories of their own successes and struggles, and more. The Blogging Workshop room will be open from 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM, and will be a casual, come and go as you’d like setting. We hope to see you there!!
