Bookmarked: I survived a speaker’s worst nightmare at BlogWorld! (Birmingham Blogging Academy)

I survived a speaker’s worst nightmare at BlogWorld! (Birmingham Blogging Academy) – [Sometimes things started to go wrong week or months before you even hit the stage] "When the first few attendees left my presentation early, I wasn’t fazed. … Then, a few more left. Did my slides suck? Had I forgotten to shower?? And then someone raised her hand to ask a question. Jill Stanek asked if I would be teaching about how to write better blog posts. I said, “No, maybe you have the wrong room?” No, she was in the right room… I was confused. Another attendee pulled out her printed guide and read the description for my session. The session title was right, but the conference organizers had included a summary from a different proposal I had submitted months ago. (See, print isn’t dead.) I was horrified. I had been giving the wrong presentation! I started to panic. I wasn’t sure what to do. I was embarrassed for me. I was concerned for those who had already left. I was a little ticked. And I needed a game plan. I took a deep breath."
