When you ask to attend a conference or event as media, you’re always asked, politely but firmly, why you should be given one. Common questions include:
- Do you really have a website?
- How much traffic does it get?
- Are you a speaker?
- Where have you spoken?
- Where have you been published?
- What’s your Twitter handle?
- How many followers do you have?
It’s exhausting (and feels disgustingly egotistical) to try to assemble this type of stuff every time someone asks, so I’ve put this page together to serve as a permanent home for those answers.
