4:15 – 4:45 Blogging to the Next Level (Fitz Villafuerte and Anton Diaz)
Fitz gave great advice about pro-blogging. These are the things that pro-bloggers will tend to keep to themselves
and not share with us lesser known mortal bloggers. Very,very helpful!!!
Anton Diaz tackled about the 4 stages of blogger evolution: Artist -> Advocate -> Entrepreneur -> Maven.
The goal is to get to the Maven stage and it’s not easy to do it but with hard work and lots and lots of effort nothing
