Garlicky Bacon Biscuits with Green Onions

Pressgram Community Education Event

Yesterday evening I had the pleasure of attending an event hangout that was broadcast live with Chef Dennis Littley and his three guests Dustin Stout, Jenny Melrose, and Pressgram creator John Saddington.

It was a great hangout and educational in every sense of the word. If you’ve been wondering how Pressgram can help boost traffic to your blog or how it can help you as a food blogger, watch the video when you have a free moment. (It’s just about 50 minutes.) As an example, I’ve used Pressgram to provide sneak peeks of upcoming posts, as well as to promote posts, which is especially effective as links are clickable in Pressgram.

Android users who want to know when the app will be available on Android (it’s currently only on iOS) – it’s a hot topic! – will be interested as well, as this is addressed.

I previously wrote about Pressgram on my other blog, trend & chic, here, if you’re curious to learn more about Pressgram and why I am so passionate about it.
