If there’s one thing I learned at Alt Summit this year, it’s that I can still constantly be amazed by technology and all the ways it makes information more easily available. Along with Julia Rothman, Amy Butler, Kate Woodrow of Chronicle Books and Lia Ronnen of Artisan Books, I spoke on a panel about turning your blog (or other creative project) into a book at this year’s conference. We felt strongly that this panel should deliver as much practical, honest and forthright information as possible, so we jammed as many facts and tips into that hour session as possible. I was so pleased with the turnout and response to the panel, but was bummed that we couldn’t share the advice and conversation that followed with everyone. But thanks to the magic of Twitter, Chronicle books created a very easy to follow Twitter timeline of the panel, our advice and people’s responses to it. They even organized it by chapter- it’s fantastic. So if you’re interested in checking out our panel from start to finish, please click here to read through the real-time slides and audience reaction/participation. Thanks again to all my amazing panel-mates for their advice and to everyone who joined us for the discussion. xo, grace
