Audival blogger Stefan Hedengren (yes, he’s my brother) just launched his ProTools blog ProToolerBlog in a German edition: de.protoolerblog.com. The German editor is named George Necola, and although talks about the partnership were in the works before Musikmesse 2008, the meetup there made all the difference.
It’s important to have a face to put on the name. Everything suddenly become much more serious and you’re just not another blogger hiding behind a computer screen in your bedroom.
Says Stefan, who did indeed find the show floor to be a great place to connect with people:
I strongly encourage you to go out and actually meet people in your business. Go to trade fairs, book meetings, etc., etc. It will raise your business to a whole new level.
