From Rags to Riches - A terminology blogger's true success story

Do you know that Patricia Brenes is here in Luxembourg with me? I mean, what's going on with this blogging and social media activity is simply amazing! Only last year we were sending each other messages on Twitter and now she took a flight from Washington to come to visit Termcoord (and me)! I can't stop to be surprised for how many wonderful opportunities I am getting since I started running this blog and using Twitter to share my passion for terminology! And this is actually what Patricia is going to say tomorrow in occasion of her presentation at the European Parliament: Building a blog on terminology: from rags to riches.

For those wordlovers based in Luxembourg, you can come tomorrow, Friday 08 May at 11:00 am at Schuman Building to meet Patricia and learn how to get the best from blogging and social networking in the area of terminology.

For those who still don't know her, Patricia is a full-time Translation Assistant in the quality control unit at the Inter-American Development Bank in Washington, DC. She is an ECQA certified Terminology Manager and owns a blog on terminology: In my own terms, that provides information on terminology such as glossaries, resources, biographies, infographics, theory and practice, etc.

This is a great opportunity to learn how to improve your online visibility, to build your network, share your passion, find other people with your passion and eventually increase the chances to find a job in your sector!

Join us tomorrow at 11:00 am at Schuman SCH L2A200 and feel free to come to visit us to meet Patricia!
