Spotlight: In Love With Alt
Let me start this off by saying I am not getting paid to write the following. It’s not a sponsored post. I’m just that crazy about ALT.
Last year, I discovered this amazing blogging conference called Altitude Design Summit (Alt Summit for short). It’s this cool cool party that happens every year in Salt Lake City. Bloggers from all over the country/world attend and it’s 3-4 days of pure design BLISS.
I was feeling pretty down because I had so many reservations about going to the 2012 summit. “I’m not a big blogger so it would be ridiculous for me to go!” “I don’t have enough money.” “I won’t know anyone.” And the list goes on and on. Well, January 2012 came and went and I missed my opportunity. I saw photos and videos and tweets galore and kicked myself repeatedly for not being in attendance. So many people went! It looked like a good time! I was devastated thinking about how I had missed out on some great friendships and memories. And then, the bloggy heavens opened up and the cyber gods and goddesses sent down a magical gift called The Alt Channel. It’s an online resource for those that could not attend filled with classes and tips for a fun time on the interwebs. (Not that kind of fun time on the interwebs, c’mon!)
The Alt Channel has a huge list of online classes from being more organized to learning more about photoshop. I’ve already taken several classes and have forged some great relationships with new pals. One of my favorite things about Alt is that it connects you with others who are exactly like you. It connects you with people who love and want to create beautiful things!!!
I want you to know about Alt. And I want you to take some of their classes. Because I want what’s best for you. They’re at all hours of the day and well worth it. They’re super affordable, and you don’t have to get all dressed up for a class if you don’t want to. I usually plop down on the couch with a box of jelly-filled doughnuts and go to town. There’s usually a Diet Coke involved, too. Again – totally not getting any kind of incentive for writing this. Alt is just so great! One of the classes I took introduced me to Joy!
Alt just partnered with Bing and they’ve got one crazy summer planned. Click here to learn how you can take some classes for free! Please take a class. You won’t regret it!
Tell me what you are signing up for. Maybe I’ll see you there!
