Alt Chat: Sharing a Story That’s Uniquely You

By: Eden Hensley; Photos by Justin Hackworth for Alt Summit

One thing sites with over 100,000 page views and millions of fans have in common is that they’re unique. They have a unique point of view. And it’s that point of view that attracts and keeps their community interested and coming back for more. 

But how do we follow in their footsteps? Where do we start with our story and how do we find fans that appreciate it?

Let’s Chat

Join the Alt community on Twitter Wednesday morning (tomorrow) June 3rd at 9 AM PT/12 PM ET for an hour-long chat about your greatest challenges producing and sharing your story, how we are (and aren’t) connecting with our fans, what we want them to take away from our work, and more.

Eden Hensley

Marketing creative, community engagement specialist, technophile, photographer, food and wine enthusiast, and the founder and editor-in-chief of The Road to The Good Life, a lifestyle blog about appreciating and enhancing your life by being grateful for the "haves" instead of lingering on the "wants." There you will find personal stories about my life and family weaved in with real-life, achievable entertaining tips, recipes for hearty home cooked meals, and DIY projects for capturing and sharing memories. I believe the best place to swap stories is over a shared meal, preferably a Thai-meal served family style, and teach an online introduction class to Thai Flavors and host the Family Dinners at The Station supper club in San Francisco.
