This year Julie Gomoll will serve as both a panelist, and as the co-host for the popular Room for Improvement. She’s been with #BlogathonATX since the beginning, and is an invaluable part of our community.
Julie has been immersed in design and web development for a long-ass time. She rode the first wave of Internet “communities” by selling her design firm to Excite. Remember Excite? No? Damn. Youngsters these days. Julie has started several successful companies, and a couple of not-so-successful companies that demonstrated how true it is that we learn a ton by our failures. She has expertise in graphic design, marketing, branding, messaging, SEO, content development, analytics, and strategy. She’s also happy to teach you the best way to make a hollandaise or debate the status of Molecular Gastronomy as a cuisine. In addition to being a panelist, Julie will be dishing out expertise in the Room for Improvement.

I’m pretty particular about who and what I allow in my feed. I seek out people with different experiences and backgrounds than my own, and I avoid or unfollow people who are hateful or annoying. As a result, I get to think about new ideas, to understand better how other folks see the world, and to learn of all sorts of interesting shit I’d otherwise never find. All without flame wars. Well, mostly.What are some of your favorite blogs to read on a regular basis?

Just write – don’t apologize for not writing, or promise you’ll write more soon. Just write.
