One of the great things about blogging here in Nashville is the vibrant community of folks who are active online, and the biggest and best opportunity to rub elbows with that crowd is coming up on Saturday, March 26 at the Cadillac Ranch downtown - yes, it's time for Podcamp Nashville 2011.
Picture several hundred folks interested in podcasting, blogging, social media... running the gamut of online content creators, gathering together for an all-day mind meld to share insight and make connections.
It's a tremendous opportunity to get outside your niche, and see what works (or doesn't) for people tackling the same sorts of issues you're interested in, just from a different perspective. There are sessions galore covering topics like podcasting, mobile marketing, leveraging YouTube, and a whole lot more. For many, the real value can be found in the informal discussions that crop up in the nooks and crannies around Cadillac Ranch, however.
Whether you create content online for work (for example, you have a small business and you know you should have a presence on Facebook, but don't know where to start) or do it as a hobby like myself, spending time at Podcamp can be one of the most enlightening days of the year. Better yet, the connections you'll make can help keep those ideas churning all year 'round.
So what are you waiting for? Head on over and sign yourself up! I hope to see you there!
