I wanted to write more about the Dawanda meeting. First of all, I think it was a really great idea to bring all these creative minds together (and out in the open out of their creating hideaways) and I hope this will be the first of many such initiatives. I met some great really great ladies there who I hope I will see again. I think one aspect of blogging that was really stressed is the fact that when you start to blog you enter a very supportive and helpful community but only if you partake and contribute to the community. I guess basically what you sow, you reap.I wish we could have gotten a list of all those who participated along with the links to their blogs or homepages, because of course there were so many people who I didn't get a chance to talk to. The really sweet Diana of lilienstern was one of the few bloggers there I knew. She has a really nice post on the meeting in German on her blog today that you might want to check out.
Another aspect of blogging that was stressed was the marketing potential for your products at a relatively low cost through blogging, you do have the possibility to reach a large community of people who may not only share similiar interests but also be interested in your products. Both Holly and Nicole gave very good talks and the whole Dawanda team proved themselves to be very competent and attentive hosts!
