A few weeks ago, I was invited to speak at the Making Media Connections Conference about building and maintaining successful online communities. Not only was I flattered that conference organizers reached out to me, but I enjoyed having the opportunity to talk about my experiences managing LiveHereOakPark.com, why I chose Ning and how I encourage member participation.
The moderator asked some great questions and the other panelists also had some excellent tips to share. If you want to learn more, you can play the podcast using the link below or visit the WBEZ Website to download it to your desktop.
