My Adventures at the DUP Conference (part 1)

I was not able to get down the the La Mon Hotel on the Friday (26 November) but have heard it was a good day with a number of discussion seminars going on in areas such as farming, food and environmental policy, health and policing.  They also had a communications training for delegates only.

I turned up for the main day on Saturday.  And it was an interesting morning, mostly in the experience in getting to the hotel in the first place.  With snow and ice filling my sight as i walked out to the car this morning i had a foreboding, then I remembered that today I will mostly be driving a Land Rover. Sorted.

The drive was pleasant and the beauty of the La Mon nestling amongst the snow white hills of Castlereagh meant I could mostly forget the bitter cold.  I would have taken a picture but got distracted after I bumped into Mervyn Storey in the car park and had a wee natter on my way in.

My early morning was taken up with an FSB sponsored breakfast where I hopefully did not bore Jimmy Spratt too much as we had a chat around the Justice system.  I also had a great chat with Alastair Ross.

After registering properly I went into the main hall and picked up a conference timetable a speeches. Where upon i bumped into Alan Meban (who did a great blog on getting to the La Mon). And the blogfest of geeks began. For a moment, before the lights went out during the panel discussion on 'Reforming Government and Financing Public Services'.  Simon Hamilton, the panel chair, quickly quipped that it the hotel power was under pressure because of the number of DUP in the building.  The panel discussion ended with a speech from Sammy Wilson - as per usual he was on form giving everyone in the room a good laugh whilst being hard hitting.  His main theme was that the DUP are best placed to fix Northern Ireland.  

Alan is also updating the DUP conference on Slugger.

I don't drop a lot of remarks, but after browsing a few of the remarks on "My Adventures at the DUP Conference (part 1)". I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.
Could it be simply me or do a few of the comments look like
they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on other online sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you make a list of all of your social networking pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

I think what you published was very reasonable.
However, think about this, suppose you typed a catchier title?
I ain't suggesting your content is not good., but what if you added a headline to maybe get folk's
attention? I mean "My Adventures at the DUP Conference (part 1)" is a little
plain. You could look at Yahoo's home page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to grab readers interested about what you've written.

Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.
