I enjoy meeting different people through Twitter and participating in actual Tweet-ups at conferences. Here is a great article for educational bloggers who post during conferences.

- Follow Others
- Perpetuate the Conversation

The Post-Event Wrap Up
- Measure Your Success
- Blog Content
- Thank Your Hosts
- Thank Your Followers
