This weekend we “Spring forward” into Daylight Saving Time and in just a couple of weeks, the calendar will tell us it’s officially Spring (even if the weather forecasts do not not!) Around this time of year, many of us turn our attentions towards Spring cleaning our homes but it’s also a good time to Spring clean your blog!
Our next #O2OChat Hangout on Air will focus on tips & tricks for sprucing up your blog and making it shine! We’ve gathered a panel of women who are experienced in blogging, blog design, coding, SEO, and working with brands to show us some simple ways to improve our blogs.
Prizes: To help further your blogging efforts and get your blog into tip-top shape, we’ll be giving away four (4) copies of DIY Blog Critique by Melissa Culbertson of momcomm.com! AND Hangout panel member Becca Ludlum has offered a one-hour blog consultation to a hangout attendee! During the Hangout, you’ll need to either make a comment or ask a question on the Hangout post to be eligible to win a prize.
The Hangout will be broadcast on air and we invite you to come by and watch, make comments, and ask questions! We’re looking forward to hanging out with you!
BlissDom is a mere six weeks away and we’re gearing up for it! Will we see you there?
Be sure to stop by and let our photographers take a photo of beautiful you!
The photos are perfect for social media avatars, website bios, and LinkedIn profiles.
And of course we’ll have fun, fabulous prizes for you to win!
If you’ll be attending, BlissDom, we’d love it if you would add your name & website to our linky list below so that we can be sure to be on the lookout for you!
O2O is excited to announce our very first Google+ Hangout on Air and we want you to be there! As we kick-off 2013, we want to make sure that O2O members have a place to go to ask questions and learn more about navigating the blog and social media scenes.
One of our favorite places to be schooled on all things blog & social media is at blog & social media conferences, so that’s what we’ll be chatting about!
Whether you’re trying to decide to attend a conference (or two) this year, or you’ve signed up for your first ever conference, or you are a veteran conference attendee, we know this Hangout will be a great place for you.
We’ve gathered a panel of conference experts to guide you through the whats, hows, and whys of attending blog and social media conferences.
The Hangout will be broadcast On Air and we invite you to make comments and ask questions on our Google+ page for our panel to address. No need to RSVP, just come over to Google+ on Tuesday night and we’ll be there!

I’m known for…getting the best deal.
I’m working on…growing my blog.
10 years from now I…will be in even better shape than I am now.
I’m currently addicted to…Downy Unstoppables, it makes me want to do laundry!
I find joy…in seeing my daughter succeed
My secret ambition…to go to London (is that an ambition or just a bucket list item?!)
I can’t do without…coffee.
I’m most creative…after looking through magazines for inspiration.
I admire…my sister. She became a widow at 30, stayed strong, lived life, and then re-married and now has two beautiful children.
When I grow up…I just want to grow up – as in height! Ha ha.
Chocolate- Dark, Milk, White, or No thanks? White, definitely white.
Best advice anyone ever gave you (about anything). I’m not sure it was advice, but the encouragement of friends to follow our hearts and homeschool our daughter when she started 7th grade. It’s one of the best things we could have done for her and our family unit. If we had not had friends to support us when we first started out, I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t have done it.
Favorite way to spend a Friday night? Watching movies together as a family.
You need to indulge in some retail therapy, where do you head? Target.
Most played song in your iTunes library? Discombobulate from the Sherlock Holmes Soundtrack
