If you have been following us on Twitter and Facebook for the last few days, then you know that we have been attending WordCamp Chicago 2011 at the DePaul University Student Center. Kim (Communications Director) and myself have been soaking up the wonderfulness that is WordPress information, tools, and tips. I can honestly say that this experience was well worth the $40 ticket price, and I have been taking notes like crazy trying to make sure I didn’t miss anything.
If you are in St. Louis, you can also attend WordCamp St. Louis which takes place next weekend. For more information on this August 6th event, click HERE.
As a professional blogger, I understand how important it is to brand yourself as well as network with others who are also bloggers and social media types. We’ve partnered with Nick Gilham from ‘A Branded You’ to offer a comprehensive workshop that focuses on personal branding and networking in professional environments.
Showcasing the Branded You: Personal Branding and Networking for Professional Success is a 4 hour workshop created to help you get the most out of these two essential topics. We will help you weave your way through creating an effective personal brand and teach you some great networking techniques so you can personally and professionally shine.
And you don’t have to be a blogger to come to this workshop. In fact, this course is great for business professionals, freelancers, job seekers; anyone who is interested in taking their professional endeavors to the next level.
The workshop takes place on Saturday, August 20th from 1-5 pm at the JC Penney Conference Center located on the UMSL campus. Regular priced tickets are just $30.
What happens when you get a bunch of fun chicks together who enjoy networking and social media? The answer is a fabulous tweet-up that is full of food, fabulousness, and fun.

At Show Me the Blog, we heavily prefer WordPress over other blogging modules. So we were elated to find out that WordCamp is finally coming to our neck of the woods August 6th at Maryville University. WordCamp is the preeminent WordPress conference in which you can learn everything about the interface including design, development, and business in terms of the blogging tool.
Presale tickets are now available for $20, which is indeed a steal. Hurry and buy yours quick because they are sure to be gone soon.
We plan on participating in WordCamp St. Louis and will be in attendance for the event when it kicks off for the first time in our area. We hope that all of you Show Me the Bloggers will attend and show your support!
