PR 201 for bloggers: orange county edition

also while in california, i got to teach another kismet PR workshop in orange county. (see photos from my latest seattle workshop here.) teaching bloggers & small business owners how to do their own marketing / PR and benefit from social media is my very favorite thing to do, so i was super excited to meet this talented group. the workshop sold out a few weeks before i even came to town! we had 15 women from all over southern california and they were so sharp and fun to work with. here's a look at our class:

i could NOT have done this workshop without my friend sharon (the famous blogger behind cupcakes & cutlery). she helped coordinate all the logistics, from securing the beautiful e madison home store as our venue to locking down gift bag sponsors & tasty food from meringue bake shop. i mean, seriously...look at this spread:

lauren from a fabulous fete did the food styling -- everything was so pretty! here are some of my students working on an in-class assignment:

the gift bags were filled with amazing treats from these fabulous companies: izze drinks | sun chips | j.r. watkins lotion | yasso frozen yogurt | hairstylist tera rae stephens | tiny prints | the sweat house | skin so sweet | CA cooking instructor jenny warner | a fabulous fete | shop moderne -- i'm so grateful to them for working with us!

sharon & i are planning another kismet workshop in so cal for early 2013, so if you'd like to get on the update list feel free to email me. and, even if you're not in california -- i do PR consulting over the phone or skype for anyone, anywhere...so check out my website and let's set up a time to chat. :)

  1. I'm extremely regretful that I missed this! Please keep me in the loop for the next one you do in SoCal, especially if it's in S. Orange County again. I'd love to be there.
