Note: This post is being highlighted as part of BlogWorld's Speaker Appreciation Week, October 3-7, 2011. Don't forget to check out the full list of BlogWorld LA's 2011 speakers - and yes, Srini and Sid are *both* on it. Heather and I had been conversing via twitter and blog comments for quite some time. But until I took some time to research what she was up to it wasn’t apparent to me just how successful she’s been as a blogger. She packed this interview with solid ideas that I absolutely loved. Here are a few of the highlights:
  • How a local Blogging Group Resulted in a Writing Spot with a Local Newspaper
  • The Keys to Finding a Good Partner for Collaborative Projects
  • The Tremendous Power of Organizing in Person Meetings in your Community
  • Using a Hashtag on twitter to find people in your local vicinity
  • How She Grew Organically over the course of 3 Years
  • Getting from Blog to Book Deal
  • How to find a Unique Voice
  • Finding Local Reporters to Get Writing Opportunities for Newspapers
  • Keys to Effectively Planning an Offline Event
  • How to Engage an Audience that Doesn’t Consist of Bloggers
