First, you'll probably ask, "what the heck is SOBCon?" Stands for Successful Outstanding Blog Conference, the brainchild of Liz Strauss who publishes the wildly successful Successful- Blog.com. The actual name of the conference is Biz School for Bloggers and this year marked the third iteration.
My intention was to get quicky tips from many of the successful bloggers in attendance, but alas, I fell short. You'll see I only managed 3 tips and two of them were in a dark bar at Morton's Steak House so Stephen P Smith and Michelle Vandepas are hard to see. Hope you'll cut me some slack on these. It was a full 3 days, lots of talking, learning, photos, videos so getting interviews felt like a challenge for me. I'm just not assertive enough to break into conversations, though others have no trouble with that!
Following the video are links to notes from the presentation I did with Chris Cree as well as notes and slide shows to many of the other presentations. Good stuff here. And, if you're interested in expanding your thinking around blogging and social media, I recommend you get on the mailing list to stay up to date on developments for next years program.
Now, here are links to various presentations and write ups from Biz School for Bloggers:

Integrating Social Media into the Larger Mix (Geoff Livingston)

P.S. I put the movie together with the software that comes with the Flip Video. It was super easy to connect three separate videos!
