I got an e-mail yesterday about being chosen to attend the Maven Coalition Conference for my work on HubPages. Did anyone else get the e-mail? What are your thoughts on it?
Second. Alas, no. Apparently I am unloved.
Interesting! All expenses paid? Is it the one at the the Stunning Four Seasons Resort?
Congratulations for the invite. Tell us about the conference when you go there.
Well congratulations to you!
I did not, and wouldn't have expected one. I need to be focused on my goals here, mainly, insofar as web work/ writing goes anyway.
Yes, I just saw it in my in box. I really don't know what to make of it. Love to hear from others about whether they plan to attend, etc.
I have not heard of this, but then I am a new author without a big portfolio. I am curious to hear how this goes.
Thanks for the congrats! Yes, it seems like one of those things that you end up paying lots of money into, for tools and resources on how to grow your brand... I'd go for free food and drinks! But I really don't publish much anymore, it's far from a full-time thing. I'm just collecting earnings from years-old articles. It would be nice to make this a full-time gig, but buying into a company like Maven pretty much defeats the purpose of being an independent publisher...
Yes! We have selected a few authors to attend a Maven Coalition conference. The purpose is to introduce a few of our authors to the Maven platform and see if they would be interested in becoming Mavens. They will learn what this means, and no, we won't be asking you to spend any money to do this. I think it's an exciting opportunity for those authors that want to build a community around their topic of expertise and are willing to put in the time and energy to build and create this strong community. I'm very excited for the possibility to meet a few of our authors face to face and to see if we can help them grow their online presence as an expert in their field.
Sound cool. What were the criteria in order to receive an invite?
Of course, we had a huge list of authors that we wanted to invite. We looked for authors that were experts in their field and that we have had communications with in the past. We had a really hard time selecting a handful of authors. There will be other opportunities for Hubbers in the future, so I hope everyone understands that. We are still trying to figure out the best integration of our two companies and what will be beneficial to our authors. . We know that many of you have been with us for a long time, and you are important to our community and ecosystem.
Very nice. I have high hopes for this transition for HP and hope to continue to see such better daily ad program numbers. Good!
Another criteria that I forgot to mention is that Hubbers had to live in North America to be invited, since the Maven is paying for air travel. .
While I still have a couple things to work out to be 100%, I plan to attend. What's to lose? This could be a great opportunity, costs nothing, and dear lord this place is beautiful! People I've spoken to envy the opportunity to see Whistler and/or speak highly of it. Besides, I can't believe they'd make such a gesture/investment simply to waste mine and their time. I'll never know if I don't go.
Congrats to those few invited. Let us know how it goes.
I was invited too. I have to say it looks beautiful. I have no idea what it means to be a Maven, but it's very tempting to go find out. That said, I am already booked those dates and won't be able to go. I would be interested in detailed information about the program though. Cre8tor, if you go, let us know your impressions.
Got the invite - just didn't see it! Can't wait!

Analytics tells me that I suddenly started getting traffic from something called the Maven Coalition. Since I don't have a website on Maven, are my hubs being advertised there? How can I figure out where specifically on Maven this traffic is coming from?

I have just come across several of my articles that have links embedded at the bottom to get the reader over to a largely unrelated Maven article. It's also only apparently on the mobile version, where it seems perhaps we are less likely to notice it. It's not just a link but the article...

This conference call addresses the synergy between Maven and Hubpages. Focus is on how the 35 million unique visitors HP contributes brings the scale needed to maximize ad revenue.The integration between the Maven and HP technical teams seems to already be well under way. Apparently there's going...

Just got rerouted through Frisco where I am currently relaxing. Anyone leaving from here today? Just curious if I might be sharing a flight with anyone : )

Two questions:Will our URL's transfer to Maven as 301s instead of actually remaining as our own domains.Will we retain the right to add, remove, edit our articles from Maven as we see fit.

This is great. I have made more money in this stock in the past 2 weeks than I have 3 years publishing here on HubPages...
