I’m Speaking At Alt! by Meg Keene So, I’m thrilled to announce that I am speaking at my very first blog conference ever, Altitude Design Summit. Whee! Alt is a design (and lifestyle) blogging conference that happens in Salt Lake City in January. While I’m clearly on the more (and lifestyle) side of things, hello, we talk about pretty stuff on APW too. Where pretty stuff meets sanity, most particularly. I’ve been waiting to tell you guys about this speaking gig till I found out what panel I was speaking on, and last week they emailed me to say that I was speaking on the “Building Your Community” panel. Yeah, I’m not even joking. Aprops? And, uh, I have a lot to say on the subject. This is a big deal for me, because for the last six years or so, I’ve carried around a list of things I’d like to do in my dream job , and “public speaking” has always topped that list. What? I was an award winning parliamentary debater in High School, and then majored in professional theatre. So, of course I want to speak in public. It’s better than chocolate for me, and I’m not even joking. And now I get to do that, starting with Alt! Two things. One! If you’re coming to Alt, pretty please let me know (and come to the panel). Two! Do we have enough readers in Salt Lake for a brunch meetup? Because, you know, I’m bringing Lauren and Alyssa too… so the whole team will be there, which could be… fun. So if you’re in or near Salt Lake and want to come, leave a comment and we’ll see what we’ve got. Meg Keene Founder & Editor-In-Chief Meg is the Founder and EIC of APW.
