We blog because we love it, but lets be honest we could all use to make a little more from our efforts.

Check out this session with Josh LeFevre and Kyle Ivins from The Blogger Network for a peak behind the curtain and to learn the questions you should be asking your Ad Network.

#VBlogCon15  
 
The world of ads can be a confusing and intimidating place for almost every blogger. However, monetizing with ads can be the difference between making a full-time living from your blog, or just providing the world content for free.

If you've ever wondered how to make the most of your ads, without selling out your readers, or wondered where and how to place your ads to maximize your earnings, join us as we go behind the curtain into how the advertising world works. 

Join us as we discuss How to Optimize Your Display Ads, Maximizing Mobile Traffic, The future of ads and The most important question a blogger should ask themselves
Our Presenters are:

Josh Lefevre - an Ad Operations Specialist at The Blogger Network who specializes in daily optimization connecting advertisers and millions of daily publisher ad impressions.

Story
Tagline
Chef / Food Blogger / YouTube Host & Producer
Introduction
My name is Dennis Littley or "Chef Dennis" as I'm known both at work and across the Internet.   I am an Executive Chef, Culinary Instructor, Food and Travel Blogger,Youtube Show Host and Producer of four shows on Google Plus that you can find on playlists of my YouTube Channel

  • Good Day Google+:   Talk and Variety Show featuring the best and brightest on Google+
  • Around the Kitchen Table:   with co-host Kitchen Designer Susan Serra featuring easy to make Restaurant Style Dishes and Kitchen Design tips 
  • The Food & Booze Show:   with co-host Mia Voss as we showcase restaurants around the Denver and Orlando areas, as well as specials from around the world.
  • On the Road with Chef Dennis:  Sharing my experiences as I travel around Florida and other areas.  Interviewing business owners, guests, offering a personal connection with these people and places.
You can also find my previous series:
  • The Bloggers Guide to Using G+ Effectively  
  •  The G+ Food Bloggers Community Education Events
You can also find my First Annual Virtual Blogging Conference on G+ in July of 2013 (11 Sessions) and The Second Annual Virtual Bloggers Conference in June of 2014 (12 sessions)

My 40+ years of experience in the Food Service Industry have taken me on an incredible journey, beginning my career in Fast Food then working my way through Nursing Homes, Fine Dining Restaurants, Executive Dining and finally Private Schools.  

Since my retirement from professional kitchens, I've made my home on Google+ and can honestly say there's no place I'd rather be.   

                        "Google+ puts the Social back into Social Media"

You can also find me at "A Culinary Journey with Chef Dennis"   where I blog about Food, Travel and Google+ and in the  G+ Food Bloggers Community.
