Blogging Your Enthusiasm – Social Media Week DC Presentation

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

Have you tried it? Google+ Hangouts

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!

Mary Fletcher Jones, presenter, Social Media Week, DC with Susan Rink, guest speaker, and David Hyson, designer and Fletcher Prince creative director

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!

Keep reading below for links to the presentations online, and our report on the results of this presentation…

Thank You, Presenters

Thanks go to our special guest presenters who joined Mary Fletcher Jones at the podium, and who did a fantastic job!

We had a packed room for our Social Media Week DC presentations on February 14

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.

The feedback we have received has been gratifying — here are just some of the comments
