Xfep Podcast: Episode 13


Unlucky number thirteen today, as I knock over my mic, have issues with my laptop, get a phone call mid-stride, and many other wonderful things which continued to make my sleep deprived life, oh so fun.

Today I talk about conferences and events. I am really excited to network and meet new people, but I also want some good content, so what should I be attending?

The number of posts per day on here will go up again hopefully tomorrow, but today was all about getting Splashpress work done with the little energy I did have.

    Every conference you can make it to COULD be worth your time, it’s all about what you make of it. And people overseas shouldn’t complain about conferences too far away. The organizer cant think about that, if some one in the UK want’s to go to a conference but can’t make it to North America the START ONE OF THEIR OWN!

    Very good point about the location of some blog conventions. I was planning on going to one in vegas last November but when I sat down and worked out the costs I just couldn’t justify it (I’m from the UK), particularly for just 3 days.
