Kosher Food Blogger Conference 2014

9:00 am – 12:00 pm

I’m the keynote speaker. The mission of the third annual Kosher Food Blogger Conference is to educate kosher-food bloggers and vendors on how to enhance the value of their blogs and overall brands through best practices, sponsorships, technology and partnerships. The Kosher Food Blogger Conference brings together well-recognized food bloggers and professionals and makes them accessible to conference participants. Speakers are chosen for the experience and innovative thinking that they bring to the kosher-food-blogging community. The Conference programming is built around the topics that are crucial for building an education on social media, photography, writing, branding, marketing and technology in our current environment.
