Also spotted on kirtsy. You can win free registration to the Mom 2.0 Summit in Houston, Texas. The kirtsy girls will be there — with a whole crew of other interesting people — and we can’t wait to meet you! Plus, while you’re at the summit, you’ll get a chance to attend a Hands On Kirtsy session.
What’s Hands On Kirtsy? So glad you asked. I’ve been dying to get the chance to announce this. Hands On Kirtsy is:
“Fun, practical gatherings of goodness to show you and yours a few new easy things to take up online. Each session will be hosted and led by kirtsy editors, kirtsy founders and kirtsy friends, who just want to get together to show you some new (and maybe not so new) cool things that will help make your online life easier, smarter and definitely more interesting.”
Basically, kirtsy is going to host meetups all over the country where you can come and learn how to twitter, how to kirtsy, how to use an rss feed reader, how to facebook, how to flickr, etc. We’ve got 6 dates on the calendar so far. And plans-in-the-works to roll this out nationwide early in 2009 with over 200 gatherings next year.
I can’t believe how excited I am for this program! I think this will go a long way in filling a big educational need. There are several people in my life that keep me in the know on the latest social media trends and sites — that teach me how to use sites like delicious and stumble upon. But from what I hear, most women don’t have such mentors. So kirtsy’s going to make it our mission to teach these tools to women everywhere. Because we can. And because we’re all about empowering women online.
What social media/web 2.0 tool do you most want to learn?
