I am honored (and a little nervous!) to be speaking on the subject of blogging and social media at two events in the next two weeks. First, Christian May of Maison 21, Julie Thigpen of Belle Maison, and I will be speaking on a panel about Career Blogging at Design Camp in Orange County, CA this Friday. Are any of you going to Design Camp? I went to my first camp in January and came away so inspired and motivated that it helped me accelerate the transition of working from someone else to starting my design firm and embarking on my dream of a career in interior design. I haven’t looked back since!
For my fellow Houstonians, I will be speaking on a panel on Wednesday, October 16th as part of the Fall Market Afternoon Keynote at the Decorative Center Houston. The panel will be moderated by social media maven, Leslie Carothers and will focus on how my fellow designers and I have used social media to generate business. The panel will also feature Sarah Brooks Eilers of Lucas/Eilers Design Associates, Lauren Haskett of Lauren Haskett Fine Design and Material Girls, Meg Lonergan of LeSueur Interiors, and Samantha Penner of The Peak of Tres Chic. I am thrilled to be speaking on a panel with my design peers and friends!
Having been to a lot of networking events and design conferences, I feel like a lot of the same information is often repeated. My hope is to be able to inspire those who attend these events and to give you pertinent information that you can put into action in your own lives right away. So do tell—what would you most like to know about social media and blogging?
If you’re attending Design Camp in Orange County this week, be sure to say hello! Houston friends, I’d love to see you at our social media panel at the Decorative Center next Wednesday, October 16th at 2:00 pm!
P.S. A big thanks goes out to Casa Sugar for including me on their list of the Top 10 Interior Designers to Follow on Pinterest! I am honored to be included among friends and design icons such as Grant K. Gibson, Hilary Thomas, Summer Thornton, Ross Cassidy, and Kelly Wearstler.
