11 Dumb Questions People Have Asked Me About Rockford
Later today I’ll be hopping in my KIA to make the trip across the Dairyland to get to the other side- my home state of Minnesota.
Every year I make the pilgrimage to attend The Conclave, a large learning conference for people in broadcasting and digital media.
And every year, without fail, when I tell people the city that I work in, they ask me some of the dumbest questions. I suppose I can’t blame them; if you’ve never been to Rockford, you might have the same ones.
