Businessbloggingseminar On Monday, November 13th I will be presenting as part of a panel of several folks at the last Business Blogging Seminar of the year hosted by SixApart.  The event should be a great introduction to blogging for those unfamiliar, as well as a practical how-to event designed to help current bloggers maximize their traffic and optimize their blogs.  It should be a very educational event and I’m looking forward to learning from all the presenters, as well as sharing my thoughts about Social Media Optimization (SMO) and how it can be used to help promote your blog.
