« In Memory - ed e' Subito Sera | Main | 3 Things You Should Know Before Starting a Blog »


Hi Valeria,

I will be attending the MarketingProfs conference on Mon. & Tue., and I'm glad that I came across this post. It reminds me that I should do a little more homework to prepare for the event and set some goals about what I'd like to take away from the experience.

BTW, I am new to blogging, and I really enjoyed your recent post, about lesser known reasons for why people blog. I've intuitively felt that in this ramp-up mode, I'm still very much exploring topics and themes, and that if I stick with it as you have done, my blog three or four years from now will probably look very different than it does right now, going in a much more specific direction. Right now, I'm mainly building up a library of the things that I like to think about, and I'm trying on for size what works well with my readers. Anyway, it's nice to know that other bloggers started out this way! :-)

I come from an IT world as well, and it would be great if our paths crossed in Boston. Thanks again for setting the stage for what I know is going to represent conversation at its best.


This sounds like a great conference. MarketingProfs rocks,a real class act--they cover social media as well as anyone, always interesting, always insightful. I recently began doing guest posts for them, and really impressed with the editorial team...Enjoy, learn, connect... I'll be tweeting this one.

@Joe - thank you for reminding everyone about the tweet-up!

@Stuart - good, we will meet then.
