Wednesday Conference-induced Link Love

What’s on Pandora: I’ll Drink to That by Smash Cast

I’m writing this pre-conference, but I intend today to be my last day at the conference. I have one client meeting and today’s the day I want to attend a few sessions and get some press events in. As of Sunday when I’ve written this post, the weather all week is to be in the mid to high 80s, except for today, which may reach a more manageable 65 degrees. Naturally I bought a black suit that I plan to wear Monday (the 87-degree day). After that, dresses and skirts.

Tomorrow will be spent preparing follow-up mailings. Everyone with whom I’m meeting will get my portfolio mailed to them, along with a brochure and another business card. Also, I intend either phone or email follow-up after that. The more points of contact, the better.

Because I’m spent on conference planning, I want to leave you with some superb posts from around the blogosphere. Give these fine folks some comment love:

Customer Service DIY: Cathy Miller laments what we’ve all experienced. Great post!

8 Things I Learned Analyzing My Yearly Freelance Writing Expenses: Michelle Rafter opens her eyes — and ours — to unexpected finds on the income tax forms.

Job Rejection Fail: Dr. Freelance Jake Poinier finds himself the unwitting subject of an unflattering email circulated by a client.

Social Media the Write Way: Urban Muse Susan Johnston’s guest post by Kaity Nakagoshi shows how to use — not abuse — social media.

    Thanks a lot, Lori. I lost nearly half my morning because I couldn't resist clicking a few links.

    I'm weak.

    I will be sooooo glad when you're back… maybe you/we should do a webinar on working a conference?

    Anne, I've already started brewing that one in the brain. 🙂
