I hope to see many of you at our presentation on blogging and podcasting today. But for those of you who cannot make it in person, you can watch it on Livestream at noon today.
Here is the blogging presentation. If you download this presentation from SlideShare, you can see the notes.
And here is the handout for today’s session on blogging
So, Google+ Hangouts are taking off in a big way. We are on Google+ and we’re experimenting with Hangouts and how we can use them to bring value to our subscribers and clients. We have already used Livestream and are excited about the capability of livestreaming Google + Hangouts to our YouTube Channel.
So, we are in the experimental phase, but how about you? Are you using it Google+ Hangouts? In what ways? Let us know in the comments!

It was a tremendous amount of work on the part of many people, but I am happy to report that our three presentations for Social Media Week DC on Tuesday, February 14 were a resounding success!

Thank You, Presenters

Thanks, too, to Tim Fahey of the Dirigo Agency for capturing some video moments of the day, Thomas Jefferson Library for allowing us to use their room and equipment for the Social Media Week DC presentation, and to iStrategy Labs and Social Media Week for organizing the registration.
We were very pleased that 250 people registered for our Social Media Week DC sessions in advance. By noon, we had standing room only (80+ attendees) in the conference room at Thomas Jefferson Libarary in Falls Church. At one point, 174 viewers were tuning in remotely via our Livestream broadcast. We also increased our Facebook Page friends and Twitter followers.

Presentations. All three presentations are on SlideShare (http://www.SlideShare.net/FletcherPrince). Be sure to download these presentations and view them in PowerPoint, on Notes view. You will see additional details that are not viewable on the slides themselves.
Live video clips. We recorded all of the sessions in their entirety, and they may be viewed on our Livestream archive (http://www.Livestream.com/FletcherPrince). Just scroll down to the area beneath the player on that page, and you will see those most recent videos in our online Livestream video library.
Livestream does not allow us to edit these videos (unfortunately!) so please skip forward about 25 minutes for the longer one (the first two sessions on YouTube and Editorial Calendars) to get to the start of the presentation, and skip forward about 14 minutes for the shorter one (to get to the start of the presentation of the third session on blogging).
YouTube video. We also captured some higher quality video footage which we are currently editing into short clips, and we will put those edited videos on our Fletcher Prince YouTube Channel (http://www.YouTube.com/user/FletcherPrince). Thank you for subscribing!
Thank you to all who attended, and most of all, we appreciate your kind referrals for new business and projects in social media, marketing, PR, and design. We are looking for work!
