Social Media Breakfast is a series that began in Boston and has now spread to more than 30 cities throughout the United States and around the world. It was brought to Tech Valley by Amy Mengel in June 2009. Social Media Breakfast Tech Valley is now one of the largest SMBs in the country!

We're thankful to The College of Saint Rose Communications Department for sponsoring SMBTV #4 and to Red Cross of Northeastern NY for hosting us.

Building a Successful Blog

SMBTV #4 will feature a panel discussion and dialogue with attendees about blogging. What makes a successful blog? Is ghostwriting appropriate? How do you attract more readers? What kind of content do you write about? Is a blog right for every organization? How does blogging fit in to an overall social media strategy? Should CEOs and corporations blog?

Please arrive on time. Plenty of parking is available on-site. Breakfast consists of coffee, tea, juice bagels and cream cheese.

Red CrossHelp Save a Life!

Every minute of every day, someone needs blood. That blood can only come from a volunteer donor, a person like you who makes the choice to donate. There is no substitute for your donation. When you make a blood donation, you join a very select group. Currently only 3 out of every 100 people in America donate blood.

Since we'll all be attending SMBTV right there at the Red Cross, we ask that SMBTV participants consider taking 30 minutes before or after the breakfast to donate blood. We will have a link available soon (and sent out to attendees via e-mail) to sign up for a time slot to donate.
