BlogWorld and New Media Expo is just around the corner (well, October, it seems like it's coming up fast). With a number of projects keeping me occupied, I nearly forgot to let you know that the early bird registration fee (save nearly half price) expires on July 15. Use EBIRD to save 20% on the current reg fee.
If you use a blog or social media to market your business, then this is one event I encourage you to attend if at all possible. There's an entire day devoted to social marketing and yesterday I found out there is an entire Problogger track being run by Darren Rowse and Chris Garrett. That's worth the price of admission alone. When you consider these two live in Australia and the UK, respectively, then having the opportunity to work with them live, in person for 4 hours is pretty awesome and will most definitely accelerate your blogging skills.
Other tracks include: content, monetization, real estate, milblogging (military blogging), food, sports and travel. The schedule is not posted yet so I can't tell you everything that is being covered yet.
Being held October 14-16, this is the 4th year for BlogWorld Expo. I've attended every year, spoken at two, and have a proposal in for this year. I wouldn't miss this event because the content, the access, the Expo, the vibe, the people, the parties - are all outstanding.
I'll be there and hope to meet you there too. If you're going, please let me know so we can meet up for a coffee or meal. Check out the details now, register and reserve your hotel (it's being held at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center so you want to get a room there if they aren't fully booked yet).
