While we wish everyone could attend our Boot Camps, we know that timing and geography often get in the way, so we're glad to report on some high quality alternatives for those who are far away from Rochester, NY.
Among the featured speakers are Yvonne's good friends and interviewees Toby Bloomberg (of Diva Marketing) and Dana VanDen Heuvel (of Dana's Blog). The Seattle session also boasts Microsoft's best-known blogger, Robert Scoble (Scobleizer).
If you're going to be in the southwest around February 9, you may want to attend the Blogging Workshop offered by Dave Young (of Branding Blog) at Wizard Academy in Austin, Texas. Dave is another of Yvonne's blogging friends through Michelle Miller (Wonder Branding).
Take a look at Dave's video clip and you'll get an idea why we agree with him that the hands-on approach to learning about blogging is so important and such a big part of our own Boot Camp workshop model. So of course, if you can't make it to ours, we recommend Dave's workshop enthusiastically.
Dave has also produced an excellent audio book/CD, Why We Blog. While we think Dave would agree it's no substitute for a full-day, hands-on workshop (Dave's or ours, hint, hint), his audio book is a great introduction to business blogging and a handy refresher, as well.
So, join us at an upcoming Boot Camp. Or, join our friends at one of their workshops. But join us in the blogosphere, one way or another!
