The ABCs of Developing a Blog Presentation

The ABCs of Developing a Blog Presentation | Ft. Lauderdale, Florida |  Thank you to all those that assisted to my Educational SessionThe ABCs of Developong a Blog – yesterday during the IGLTA’s International Annual Convention. It was a pleasure for me to share my experience, knowledge and passion for Gay Travel Blogging and Social Media. Since I started CarlosMeliaBlog.com a year ago, I have been Guest Speaking in the United States and Europe, and I look forward for more.
I have been blogging for over a year, turning into the most rewarding, profitable, frustrating and addictive experience of my life… I am currently managing my own blog CarlosMeliaBlog.com, and also consulting with other companies developing their blogs and communication strategies. I am the webmaster of Les Clefs d’Or Blog. As many of you may know I am a Travel Agent by core, but I also do Consulting on Gay Travel Marketing Worldwide. So if you are a hotel, tour operator, destination or any travel related business, and need help communicating and reaching the gay market, I can help you with that.
