I obviously have summer concerts on the brain being spoiled with Denver's Red Rocks Amphitheater in my backyard with this analogy. No, I can't offer a "back stage" pass to FitBloggin15 coming up in two weeks in Denver, but I can offer you a chance to get your name out there virtually if you can't be there in person.
Yours truly is in the "pole position" in the first hour of breakout sessions hosting a small group discussion on "How to Build Readership Through Social Media." I'm excited, and perhaps a bit nervous. My "day job" is in sales so I'm used to talking. I'm excited in a good way in that I get to talk about my passion; which is running, triathlons, and blogging about it! No sweaty palms or trembling knees just yet, and it should be a lot of fun!
For starters, there's a giveaway from THE best running store in Colorado, Runner's Roost! Participants in the session are eligible for one of four $50 gift certificate to Runner's Roost. Woohoo! (Don't worry, if you're out-of-state, you can order online!)
Sooo, where does the virtual backstage part come in? For those that couldn't make it to this year's conference in person, you have an opportunity to have one of your questions posted by me during the hour? Social media can be fun, time consuming, an invasion to the dinner table or bedroom, but it can also build lasting relationships and drive traffic to your blog.
In the comments section below, or on my Facebook wall, post the question you'd like the room to discuss and questions asked will have their name "thrown in the hat" for the $50 gift certificates.
There is no such thing as a "stupid question"--that's my job. (smiley-face icon inserted here.)
If you have been "on the fence" on attending, the registration LINK is still open. I look forward to your input and seeing many of you in Denver!
