Blogging for your Business I & II

Fellow IACP members who blog may want to know about Denise Graveline´s forthcoming "blogging-for-your-business" workshops (both beginner and advanced) coming up in late October in Washington, DC.

Her own food blog, Vegetables for Breakfast, was recently named "small business blog of the day" by Pajama Market, an industry observer of entrepreneurial blogs. More and more food-related businesses are using blogs to promote their products and services, so if you are in the DC area, make sure to attend this event!

Here´s the program:
