We are continuing to firm up our speakers and sessions as we gear up for FBC2014 in October and we’re very pleased to be able to announce three new speakers today.
These three ladies will be participating in our panel session on finding and leveraging your blogging niche. They all bring a unique perspective to the topic and will help you get focused and show you where it can lead when you do.

As the Editor of FBC, Melissa reviews every single FBC member blog application (1,300 and counting!) and is constantly scouring the web for potential contributors and speakers with fresh, focused voices. As a designer, she has worked with many bloggers to help them establish their branding and blogs. It’s safe to say she’s read more blogs than can be counted! She has a unique perspective on what works, what doesn’t and what stands out. Melissa is a co-founder and Managing Director of FBC, and runs her own web and graphic design studio, Fine Lime Designs. She is also a freelance food photographer and blogs about food photography at Eyes Bigger Than My Stomach. She lives near the ocean, just outside of Vancouver, with a goofy lab named SamTheDog.
