Get Out There!
Abstract: In part 1 of this 3-part series, CUGC Women in Tech lead mentors and CTPs Esther Barthel, Jo Harder and Theresa Miller join CTA Ray Davis to share their best advice and tips for creating and publishing blogs. Blogging is a great first step toward getting your name out in the IT community and building up a reputation. But it can be daunting if you've never blogged before and don't know where to start. Or, maybe you have a lot of amazing blog ideas, but just get bogged down in the execution. (Procrastination, endless work deadlines, any myriad of reasons why you never get that post finished!)
Expert bloggers themselves, Esther, Jo, Theresa and Ray will share their methods and workflows for creating posts and getting them out to the tech community. Because everyone works differently, this short session is meant to inspire and motivate!
This session is presented by CUGC and the CUGC Women In Technology community, and is free for all attendees.
