GGD # 5 – June 8th, 2010 – Blogging

This month’s Winnipeg Girl Geek dinner is all about blogging. Liz Hover and Polly Washburn will be sharing their experience, from the technical aspects of applications, tools, and themes, to the creative aspects of choosing a focal point, post composition, and how to keep content fresh and readers coming back for more.

Join us on Tuesday, June 8th, 2010, 6:00 PM at Aqua Books for a bite to eat and a chat at the EAT! Bistro. From there, we will move upstairs to the Live! Lounge for the interactive presentation.

Everyone is invited; if you plan on attending, please RSVP via Facebook or Eventbrite.

The presenters:
