Tech Tuesday – Blogging Tips and Tricks–#win7tech

This Tech Tuesday Live Twitter Chat we’ll be doing something a little bit different. Of course, all the usual players will be involved: @windows, @windowsblog, @benthepcguy, @kristinalibby and @brandonleblanc but we are adding a few more people in the mix and giving away a pretty sweet prize. We are doing all that in order to prepare our blogging readers (and anyone interested!) for BlogHer (the premier female blogging conference) or other major conferences you may be attending down the road.

Who’s going to be there?

Janice Croze, 5 Minutes for Mom: Janice is one of two identical twin sisters who are the powerhouse forces behind the highly influential and popular 5 Minutes for Mom website. A frequent speaker, lecturer and voice in the blogging community, we are thrilled to welcome her to our Windows Champions program*. She is a BlogHer veteran and ready to share all her secrets.

Robyn Wright, Robyn’s Online World: Robyn has been working with Windows for the past few years and frequently writes about tips and tricks for using PCs on her blog. As a multi-year BlogHer veteran, she knows what you’ll need to know, what you never thought you didn’t know and how to keep smiling through it all. She’s an energetic and friendly online voice who regularly attends conferences and events around the country.

Tanya Gordon, Mommy Goggles: Tanya is the happy Midwestern mom behind this hit mom blog. She’s a tech-enthusiast, a frequent conference attendee, and an avid photographer. She’s been writing her mom blog for the past 5 years and has a myriad of things to share with the blogging community.

What you’ll win?

Find out about all the prizes you can win here but the long of the short is that we are giving away a package for BlogHer attendees that includes a Sony VAIO SA Windows 7 PC, a Samsung Focus Windows Phone, a spa treatment and breakfast in bed. Full official contest legal restrictions here. Oh and here’s one more secret, we’ll be choosing one person from today’s Tech Tuesday chat to join us onboard our Friday night sailing excursion at the BlogHer conference. It’s a private event for top mom bloggers to mix, mingle and share their stories. In order to attend the sailing excursion, you must already be attending BlogHer.

What will you learn at tomorrow’s Tech Tuesday Live Twitter Chat?

Tomorrow from 12-1pm PT, join us to discuss blogging tips and tricks as well as what you’ll need to survive at Blogher’11. We’ll be talking about all the tools bloggers can use and directing you to interesting places, articles, and websites that will make your life easier. You must be participating in the Tech Tuesday Live Twitter Chat to be eligible to win the prizes. The winner will be chosen during the last 10 minutes of the conversation. Remember in order to participate, you must be on Twitter and following #win7tech.

Note we will only be talking about the outlined topic each week and we will not be answering questions outside those topics. Questions for this week may include: What is the best blogging platform? How can I best watermark images? Can I use WordPress with Windows Live Writer?

***Windows Champions are bloggers who are hand-selected to work with the Microsoft Windows. As part of this arrangement, they have been loaned a Windows 7 PC for the course of year and been given the opportunity to learn about Windows and Microsoft products.
