Alt Summit – Getting Past Zero

02.06.13

I can’t believe it has been over 10 days since Alt Summit! I feel very late on sharing a recap, but I think the information will always be valuable. I am amazed how quickly everyone had posts ready and shared—impressive and kind of making me look bad, just kidding—it’s all good!

The first session that I went to was Getting Past Zero with Mina Brinkey, Emily Frame, Jessika Hepburn, and Mariah Danielson. I don’t know if it was from the excitement of being the first, or that the content was killer but it stands out as one of my favorites. In graphic designer fashion, I designed a little graphic with the information that I learned. They touched on important elements such as: Content, Community, Being Yourself and Networking.

Enjoy blogging friends or people who may have a dream of being a blogger : )

    i love your graphic! i think this is one of the best alt recaps i’ve seen!

  • Ces

    Agreed! Being a beginner blogger, I often times feel intimidated by other more successful blogs out there. Your graphic really makes it easy for us new bloggers to have a breakdown of the guidelines that can help us grow. Thank you!

    • Patti

      So glad it is helpful Ces! I think it is a good reminder to check in weekly/monthly and be aware of what else you can do to build your blog.

    This is beautiful, both in content and in design! Found it on Pinterest 🙂 and I just wanted to pop over to say thanks for putting it together! Also, I thought you might want to know that there is a minor typo in #8 — it should be “you’re” instead of “your”. Not a big deal at all but it’s always nice to have things perfect 🙂

    Thanks again for sharing this!

    Oh this was a fun glimpse! I love seeing what I may have missed in one panel…you simply could not get to them all!
