Not only do these amazing individuals willingly give their service to and sacrifice their own personal advancement for our country they take the time to tell us about their experiences.

If you want to learn the kinds of sacrifices family members make while their loved ones are serving far from home, read Milblogs. If you want to be inspired by the best our country has to offer, read Milblogs. If you to read raw emotion that will make you mad, laugh and cry sometimes all in a single post, then you should be reading Milblogs.
More than anything don’t forget to comment and thank them for their service.
With that said three of the Milblog panels happening at BlogWorld this year have just been announced. Here they are.
One of the lessons we learned last year from the first BlogWorld & New Media Expo was that coordinating over 100 seminars with 130+ speakers is too much for one man to do. Don’t get me wrong we were very proud of what we accomplished with the world’s largest blogging conference last year and the All Star line up of speakers. Dave Taylor did an awesome job and will be back this year but we wanted to get him some help.
So this year we will have “Track Leaders” for some of the critical content. The “Monetization” track would be at the top of that list. By far our most popular track last year it was important we found the right person to lead. Award winning blogger, affiliate marketer extraordinaire and international man of mystery Jim Kukral is that person.

**end obligatory bio info**
To summarize Jim has been walking the walk earning money via his blog and teaching other bloggers how to do the same for a long time. On top of that he is an all around good guy and eats his spinach. For those of you who don’t know Jim take a quick look at his introduction of last year’s closing keynote speaker at BlogWorld Mark Cuban. This was the first time the two had met in person after Jim had created the infamous “Mark Cuban Please Call Me” website about a year earlier.
Please join me in welcoming Jim to the team.
