Returning Home from Agvocacy 2.0 Conference

August 25, 2012

It’s been a whirlwind week but made some memories, helped some others learn to expand their social media expertise and met up with some friends. It was so good to see Janice Person, Jeff Fowle, Ray Prock and Mike Haley again – although we’re in touch online often. Seeing the foundation board in person rather than through a conference call is a different means of communicating and much more personal. The chance to meet two of the Peterson brothers was pretty awesome as well, not because of the 7million hits their video has received but because they have found a way to connect with people and used it. Thank you Greg and Nathan for taking time to attend and present.

A little time on Thursday night after the ‘agswap’ meant time to walk down and see Craig Morgan do a show a few blocks from the hotel.

The selections in the ag swap, a tradition started with a suggestion from Ryan Goodman last year, were just awesome. Unfortunately the (real) maple syrup didn’t get to travel to Alabama with me, but there were other things that did and were awesome!

 

 

 

 

 

Ryan Goodman was one of three presenters giving beginning bloggers tips on starting and improving their blogs. His I Am Ag Proud blog covers a variety of topics centered around agriculture and beef cattle.

Food, learning new things, helping others learn new things, friendships and a whole lot more go into the annual AgChat conference. I’ll bring more photos to the blog over the next few weeks.

There was also some new tricks and tips learned that will help operational and time management here, which helps the blog as well as Facebook and Twitter pages!

Some new things on the horizon, and as we get caught up a bit more things are to come. Thanks for the loyalty of those who read, comment and take time to like the posts. Like the conference, it’s not done for money. It’s done because we believe in agriculture and in food choices.

As the plane approached Nashville again there is much left to pass along, and a challenge to use the new things learned. There is a wide range of agriculture and it was represented in that room – from very small operations to very large, from ‘conventional’ to organic, from crops to dairy to hogs to – yes – rabbits.
