Blogger Panel Recap

This past Wednesday Marketing Society partnered with EEG (the Entrepreneurial Exchange Group) to co-sponsor a blogging panel. The panel featured three bloggers one from Thrillist, one from HackCollege, and the last from Swagger. There was a moderated discussion where the bloggers were asked questions like how did they get involved in blogging, how anyone can start a blog, and how blogs have turned into businesses. They exlpained how online advertising on blog works and the advantages and disadvantages to things like Google AdSense and direct promotion. It was cool to see the blogging perspective from all sides; fashion, humor, and lifestyle/city events. The biggest advice the bloggers had was to go into blogging with some sort of goal in mind and to never start a blog just to make money.
