Just a few years ago, I heard about this cool-designer-blogger-conference-where-you-meet-tons-of-people-and-everyone-looks-rad-in-SLC. I saw photographs from the event and started reading blogs authored by the people who attended. I thought, “those are my peeps!” And I knew had to go someday. It is called Altitude Design Summit or referenced as Alt Summit and it’s a “place where design and lifestyle bloggers in all their forms— foodies, photographers, travelers, fashionistas, interior designers, product placers, adventurers — come together, share ideas and connect with marketers.” Sounds amazing, right!?
Well, I haven’t made it to the conference in SLC yet (hopefully in January!), but I have attended the next best thing. Their online classes which are taught by professional bloggers via video in a sort of online classroom setting where you can chat it up with other class attendees and even live tweet about your learnings. They cover a lot of blog how-to topics such as advertising, using photoshop, and staying organized. Most classes are for the beginner blogger trying to find their voice on the internet. I must tell you I was blown away by the $15 registration fee and I’m talkin’ blown away as a good thing! You learn so much and it’s a real hoot connecting with other bloggers! So far, I’ve taken two classes, but I plan on taking many more.
