I've just participated in a Webinar!
Now - how cool is that?
Made doubly cool by the fact that this very cool gal presented the Webinar and it was hosted by these cool people. (OK - enough with all the 'cools' now!)
Right - I might need to explain a bit!
A webinar is an on line seminar or conference. Basically the participants are given a login to a hosting site for a given time (sometimes with a live telephone call as well so that it is truly interactive) and the presenter or trainer can then deliver a presentation (usually using Power Point) and 'talk' just as if they were giving a presentation in a face to face class room. If you are interested you can find out more here.
We use Webinars at the day job (not very professionally - but it is my job to try to lead my colleagues kicking and screaming into the 21st Century) and indeed I have been known to host them myself. But this one was made all the more exciting because I was joining from "Across The Pond". (I had to find a website that converted BST into Eastern Time! They were sitting in New York at 2pm - or at least Julie was - and I was sipping a glass of white wine at 7pm).
And the topic? Well it was all about Blogging! So how appropriate that I am blogging about it!
Julie knows her stuff! A lot was common sense, but a lot was really good solid information about how to build a blog if you are an artist. I took copious notes and I will try to put some of this stuff into practice to improve my own blogging.
But meanwhile, head over to Julie Fei-Fan Balzar's site to see what is going on in NYC and to see how a real pro does it.
