BlogHer Food 2011 Day Two Recap

The second, and last day, of BlogHer Food was chock full of information and insights. Here are a few key takeaways:

  1. When adapting recipes, ask for permission from the author/creator of the original recipe
  2. Use social media to promote your brand.
  3. Use the different social media channels effectively.
    • Mrs. Q (@fedupwithlunch): “The power of #socialmedia: you can reach so many, [and more] when you use a hashtag”
    • Facebook is for conversations.
    • Twitter is for nuggets of information.
    • Be careful. According to David Leite (@davidleite), “It can take years to build a reputation, but it can take 2 tweets to lose it.”
  4. Meridith Goldman: “Develop a good writing voice. Hone your craft.” 
  5. And the three key points made during the final keynote:
    • Quality is everything
    • Stop giving away the milk so cheaply
    • Think outside the laptop!

I’ve learned so much at BlogHer Food 2011. I’ve met a bunch of new blogger friends. I’m looking forward to the next BlogHer Food conference – location TBD.
