A Few Laughs from Design Bloggers Conference

Posted by

I was honored to be the emcee for the awards presentation at the Design Bloggers Conference this week, and to loosen-up the crowd I gave a little talk about how receiving the award for Best Blog in 2012 had catapulted my business to new heights! Have a look:

I got my own magazine deal!

I accompanied Mr. Clooney to the Oscars!

And I was a special guest of President Obama!

See what being an award-winning design blogger can do for you?!

So, cheers to this year’s winners!!


Best New Design Blog: Leslie Wood, Hadley Court

Best Design and Graphics: Grace Bonney, Design Sponge

Best Writing: Maryam Montague, My Marrakesh

Best Overall Blog: Stacey Bewkes, Quintessence


I hope you enjoyed my little joke just as much as the DBC folks did! More exciting things unfolded while I was there, so more to come!






High-profile design blogs, online mags, and websites of the top publications are another way that you can be “published.” Come learn how to know which projects should be submitted for print vs. virtual exposure and how to work with design editors for both kinds of publications! We have amazing special guests joining us, including Krissa Rossbund of Traditional Home, Ronda Carman of the blog All the Best, and acclaimed photographer Nancy Nolan! We’re now offering two easy ways to make this investment and still make all of the other events you want to in April, like High Point Market!! Come learn more: HERE.
