Hurry, hurry , hurry. You must not miss out on the biggest giveaway ever in the history of blogging.
Jaden from SteamyKitchen.com and the kind folks at Club Med hosted a fabulous food blogger event this spring in the Bahamas. Now they’ve overworked themselves over the last few months to organize another amazing food blogger event, but this time, it’s available for everyone to join!
Food Blogger Camp at Club Med in Ixtapa, Mexico will feature workshops focusing on helping you improve and build your blogs to maximum potential. It’s an event open to anyone who is interested in learning more about building a successful blog. Best of all, it’ll be held on the beautiful beachside Club Med location in Mexico, so we can all have our cocktails and study blogging together!
Both Todd and I will be giving a seminar on Multimedia and showing everyone all the different ways to amp up your blog, including a step by step production of a video! Here’s what we’ll be sharing:
- Building a Better Blog with Multimedia – Learn how to make your blog more interactive and visually enticing by integrating various forms of Multimedia. With applications such as video, graphics, text, and podcasts, readers will be fully immersed in your content through the virtual multimedia experience. Technologies, softwares and applications will be discussed to give a basic understanding of different options to create all the sensory experiences on your blog. Basic tutorials on creating a video and podcasts will be demonstrated, as well as discussion on basic applications of other multimedia forms. Topics on editing and creating an editing workflow with PC and Mac will also be covered. We’ll do a quick demo of video and audio during the sit-down conference and immediately throw them on the editing bay. Participants will get a quick, but informative idea on how to create a workflow for video and podcast.
