Okay, so I can't even begin to describe how long it's taken me to "come down" from my BWELA high. This was certainly not my first time at BWE, as I've been attending since 2008, back when I had just started blogging over at b5media and working for Darren Rowse. Back when it had been my first ever real conference I'd ever gone to. Considering I'd been blogging since before they called it that (circa 1996), it only … [Read more...] about BlogWorld Expo LA 2011 – Woah!
I feel the need to do this massive recap post, but it's probably more likely I'll just spend my time gushing, so if that's not what you're looking for, I make no apologies anyway. Blog World Expo: New York Style First, I have to say that the Blog World team is and always has been fantastic to me. Deb Ng, Rick Calvert, Dave Cynkin, and all the staff are just great people in general, but the fact that they have faith … [Read more...] about Blog World Expo NY 2011 – Wow!
I'm gearing up for my session the end of this month at BlogWorld & New Media Expo in the Javits in New York City. My session is titled "Building A Successful Online Community" (scheduled for Wed.

My reasons for this are many; If … [Read more...] about Ask Me About: Building Online Communities (BlogWorld Expo NY 2011)
Oh, how I love this time of year! Despite the fact that I am busier than I've been in a long time, I'm so excited to be making my way to Blog World Expo in less than two weeks. (I'm speaking this year, feeling honored as all get out as a soon to be 3-year veteran of the event.) So I know that many of you may be finding this your first year at #BWE10, or maybe even your first conference ever. I love the fact that … [Read more...] about Less Than Two Weeks Til Takeoff – You Ready for Blog World Expo?
I'm a woman. (SHOCKER!) I secured my very first "big girl" speaking engagement a few months back, and I'm quite delighted to say the least. (I'll be speaking on a panel at BlogWorld and New Media Expo 2010.) At BWE I get to "hang with the big boys" as some would call it, like Darren Rowse, Brian Clark, Patrick O'Keefe, Jeremy Wright, and Chris Garrett among others. Blog World is, for me, the highlight of my year … [Read more...] about It’s Conference Season and The Complaining Begins
I realize I should've posted this over a month ago. I also realize that sometimes I have way too much going on and I forget really important, simple things like this. I have choked down my guilt over this with some chocolate, and I feel better now. I am a totally huge fan of BlogWorld and New Media Expo 2010, having gone the past two years, and fully intending to go again this year. There's pretty much very little … [Read more...] about Speaking at Blog World Expo 2010!
