For those of you in the Philadelphia area with an interest in social media and/or public relations, I'll be doing a Social Media 101 presentation next Thursday, April 24 from 6-8:30 p.m. for the Philadelphia Black Public Relations Society . We'll be at:
Community College of Philadelphia: Center for Business & Industry Auditorium, C2-28
1751 Callowhill St., Philadelphia, PA 19130 (Entrance on 18th Street)
Members--$15, Non-Members--$25, Students--Free--Registration is payable at the door.
We'll go on a whirlwind tour of some basic tools--blogs, social networks, etc.--and discuss how they can be used by PR staff for professional development and 21st century relationship-building. Hope you can join us!
P.S. Tomorrow is Reader Appreciation Day, thanks to Robin Reagler and, as promised, I'll be doing a little "I Love You Readers" Giveaway to thank you for the time you give, both in reading and commenting. I'm actually going to do two prizes. Both winners will get their choice of either a $15 Amazon gift certificate or a $15 iTunes certificate (thanks to Britt Watwood for the i-Tunes idea). If you want to enter, be sure to email me by 12 midnight (EDT) tonight. I'll do the drawing tomorrow and announce the winners then. I may cook up some other ideas in the meantime, so stay tuned.
If you're a blogger, please consider joining us tomorrow. Readers make blogging worthwhile, so acknowledging their contributions just seems right--and a lot of fun.
