EVO Conference 2010- Why weren't you there again?

I have to hurry because I need to take off to go to work.

But I did want to mention EVO '10.

You guys, it was so great!

The sponsors rocked. You should click on that link and see who sponsored. The Canyons, Buick, PBS Kids, Quaker Oatmeal--so many more... click the link! We were SPOILED.

I learned about SEO, marketing, sponsors, and just how to have my own story and how to relate. How to be authentic and irresistible. Again I need to find my own niche... but I also need to learn how to incorporate words like "muffin top" to bring in more traffic. Who knew? This whole time I have been saying "Spare tire" and I should have been calling it by the sweet nick name of "muffin top"... my bad.

I also took a class where I learned how to VLOG... so LUCKY YOU GUYS might see me more on VIDEO! I know, you guys are so excited! I did learn specifically from that class that I am everyone else's good luck charm. Almost everyone I sat by or hung out with in that class won a new Kodak HD Video Camera. Yes, this is a true story. So stick with me if you want to win big!

And I'm pretty sure the one girl I put forth an effort to sit by and talk to won the BIG HUGE Grand prize... just sayin.

I would show you some pictures... but instead I'm going to point you to my flickr stream so you can look through them yourself. Here is THURSDAY NIGHT, FRIDAY AFTERNOON WORKSHOPS (all but the photography one... sigh, couldn't make it up the Gondola so the other photographer got to shoot that one), and SATURDAY AFTERNOON Sessions (Just half of them). ENJOY!

You need to try and go next year. They had the most incredible speakers. And the people I met or SHOULD have met... will forever be the most favorite part of any conference I attend.

My question for you and so I can post the answers on twitter is: If you could have me VLOG about one thing embarrassing or not... what would it be?


Love,

I will definitely be there next year. But Vegas was calling my name.

Okay, yea... I'll have to admit that I wish I had fun with you guys in Vegas also... not going to lie!

T said...

Not going to lie either - wish I'd been EITHER of those two places... but hey, I have clean clothes... oh wait... no I don't... hmmm, crap! no silver lining after all.

I answered your BlogFrog question - and have decided that maybe I'm NOT joking after all :)

Steph said...

You rawk Shelle... from always being so sweet. To taking amazing photos... to teaching me about a kick butt new budget wallet.

Here I thought I was the good luck charm! I was sitting my the BIG winner that last night! It was a blast! I'm also going to try my hand at vlogging. Gulp... Question???? I'm always interested in Camera details, maybe favorite lens's setting's or even favorite Photoshop action? Boring, I know, but I'm sure other's can come up with some personal questions!

Char @ Crap I've Made said...

I'll come take you for a ride my my Buick (for a week). I owe it all to you.

Thanks so much for being one of the official evo'10 photographers. Your pics are amazing and we sincerely appreciate your help in capturing this amazing weekend!

Also... I'm super excited that you were inspired to start vlogging. Can't wait to see how that adds to your blog :).

Hope to see you at evo'11!

2 things: I totally used muffin top i a post a few days ago. Who knew? Also, I've always wanted to see one of us homemaker types vlog when their house was a mess and the kids needed a bath and everything was just falling apart. I'd do it but a) I'm not good with the vid and computer stuff and b) I'm anonymous.

Jack said...

Sounds like it was a lot of fun.

I want to know more about terms like 'muffin top'?

Rachael said...

I hate you for going to all these conferences and leaving me alone to wallow in my self pity. I gave you a Versatile Award over at my blog anyways.

Okay I will go next year. If you insist. I actually do use the term "muffin top." Does that mean my blog will be popular? That SEO stuff makes my brain hurt.
