Bloggers and social media aficionados to support veterans at NEPA BlogCon

| September 1, 2012 | 0 Comments

Area bloggers, social media aficionados and those who want to learn will unite on Saturday, September 29 at NEPA BlogCon, for the region’s first conference on the topic at day long conference at Luzerne County Community College.

The purpose of the event is to gather personal and business bloggers, tech professionals, marketing professionals, corporate communications professionals, PR/Marketing professionals, and members of the community together to learn about storytelling through new media while sharing their ideas. Anyone who is responsible for communicating their company’s message or is interested in blogging and social media for personal reasons, should attend.

Of course, we’ll be there too – 50% of the proceeds will benefit the work we do in the community to assist veterans and their families. We are very thankful to organizers of the event for helping us out at a time when we have a critical need for additional funding! The other 50% of the proceeds will benefit The Arc of Luzerne County, who for many years has served the needs of our Luzerne County citizens with intellectual and developmental disabilities through advocacy and programs. We couldn’t be more proud to be at their side honored together by this conference.

Many veterans are business owners and might know that blogging and other social media are excellent ways to market their services and products. Other veterans know that self expression through writing, photography and art are excellent ways to come to terms with what’s inside and that social media and blogging can bring people with things in common together in online communities. Family members too!
