In the past year, I’ve become addicted to conferences.
The people are awesome, the networking is great, and the opportunities are huge.
But sometimes the conference atmosphere can feel a little stale, and I find myself getting sucked into my own little echo chamber.
The conference community has been built on an intimate and personal relationship, so when things don’t go well, it’s tough to get away.
In an attempt to help bridge the gap between the conference and the people who run it, I set out to create an e-mail list for conference attendees.
I started out as a blogger and occasional speaker at a conference and soon found myself fielding questions from attendees about conference etiquette, networking, and other topics.
Over time, I found myself asking questions about how to build an email list, and how to keep it interesting and helpful for attendees.
