Earlier this year, I attended a blogging conference here in New Orleans. I got to meet new friends, connect with brands and most importantly, learn about my craft. As most of my readers know, blogging is my hobby. I work outside the home full time and do not have as much time as I would like to dedicate to Experimental Mommy. Time is of the essence! I need to be able to create good content in a short amount of time in order to fit everything into my lifestyle. You can imagine my interest when I heard several bloggers at the conference singing the praises of a program called Windows Live Writer and how they can no longer live without it.
As luck would have it, I happened to sit at a table with a Microsoft Representative who schooled me on the features of Live Writer. She had me at “incredibly fast image editing.” I spend the majority of my time uploading, cropping, sizing and watermarking pictures so I was elated to hear about a program that would shorten the process. I think I begged her for more information and a few short weeks later, I was chosen to become a Windows Champion!
In the upcoming year, I will have the opportunity to learn about Windows programs and pass along tips to you, my readers. I was loaned a Sony Vaio Y laptop (it’s pink!) in order to help me on my journey to better blogging. I am already loving the portability of this laptop! At only 3.23 lbs and a battery life of 6 hours, the Sony Vaio Y is perfect to take to blog conferences or brand events.
I am so excited to be a part of the Windows Champions program and share with you tips and tricks to make your life easier and maybe even a few fun giveaways. Make sure to follow along at #windowschampions! Stay tuned!
