Too Much Conference Swag? Time to Get Charitable!

Author:
If you're not wearing shirts you receive at conferences, consider donating to the needy.

If you're not wearing shirts you receive at conferences, consider donating to the needy.

Do you have to pack an extra tote bag in your luggage so you can carry home all your conference swag? If so, what happens to the swag when you get home? Be honest, now. Do you use half the stuff you grab from sponsors? Do you help yourself to hotel shampoos and soaps only to throw these goodies into a draw for “just in case?”.  Not to lecture, but to take stuff you’re never going to use only leads to more clutter and landfill. Moreover, there are some people who can put certain swaggy items to good use. Before accepting an item from a sponsor or vendor, consider whether or not this is something you’re really going to use. If you have a lot of conference swag you don’t know what to do with, consider getting charitble. There are plenty of people who can really use your swag.

Check it out:

  • Hotel toiletries: Donate to local homeless, senior citizen homes and battered women’s shelters. They’ll all put shampoos, sewing kits, soaps and cotton balls to very good use.
  • Clothing items: Donate to the homeless or needy.
  • Books, CDs and magazines: Donate to the library.
  • Toys: Really, do you use that gel yoyo? Donate it to Toys for Tots or a homeless shelter.
  • Business & stationery items: Donate to homeless shelters, schools and occupational learning centers.
  • Tote Bags: Use for your grocery shopping or donate to shelters.
  • Food and grocery items: Donate to the homeless shelter or food kitchen.

What do you do with YOUR conference swag?

Your Help With Next Year Requested

Author:

The major goal of the milblog track at Blog World is to talk with you. Not to you, not at you, not about you, but with you. We want to meet you, get to know you, and have you get to know us as well.

To that end, we will have an unofficial panel Friday 16 October at 1 pm (1300 hours) at the Army Milblog Lounge in the exhibit hall. That panel has but one purpose: to hear from you what you would like to see and/or hear in the milblog track next year.

So, what would you like to hear? What would you like to see?

Come by and let us know. Talk, enjoy some refreshments, and let’s begin planning on making next year even bigger and better than this year.

Hope to see you there.

Don't Let The "Blog" Fool You

Kristie Wells & Dave Peck

When you go to Burger King, there is more than just burgers right? I mean you can get a salad, milkshake, those yummy chicken fries..oh and an Angry Burger too.(Yes, it is a burger, but I had to work it in. I have a thing for those Angry Burgers.)  So, just like most things, there is more to them then what they say in their name. Blog World Expo is no different. There is so much more going on at this event then just talking about blogs.  When I tell my friends I am going to it next week, I get comments all kinds of from “Do you all Blog each other when your there?” to ” How much Blog can fit into one room?”(Lame comments I know,  my friends are lame.)

So, what is  my point you ask.. there is much more to Blog World Expo then blogging.. let me share some  of these things. I will do it in list form, as people like lists.

-The expo floor!! Companies like.. Ford, Ebay, Radian6, Technorati and more will have booths on the floor. You can walk around and meet the employees’, CEOs and owners of these great companies. All these people will be in one room, a big room mind you, there for you to chat with.

-Not that I am promising anything but if these companies are all there they usually bring…. SWAG!! We all like swag dont we? (Bring an extra bag to carry it back..im just saying..)

-Friendships. Last year I went to BWE and meet some amazing people who I still friends with today. I have already gotten emails making sure I am going so we can hook up. I am talking to you  Jodi , Veronica and Ewan

-Podcasting. Prior to the New Media Expo was its own event. The two events are now one, which makes them both that much stronger. I mention this because there are many resources for podcasters. Heck there is a whole track on it!

-Might I add there are tracks on Community, Moms, Health, and yes even Social Media. (Maybe next year Dad’s will get their own track..ya right)

-So you are learning about Podcasting, Social Media, Blogging, Online Communities…but you ask “How do I make money doing it?” Then the Monetization track is for you!

–  Networking. Yes, we have Twitter, Facebook and hundreds of other Social Networking sites. Yet, you can not beat face time. There are going to be hundreds of people who are interested in the same things as you, want to learn from you and you from them.  When the Expo is over, you will still be tweeting about the things you learned and building your relationship.

-What did you say? You went all the way to Vegas to see the night life? Well ask and you shall receive… Oct 15 there is the Techset & Blogworld After-hours party and October 16 there is the BlogWorld Opening Night Party.

There have I made my case yet? So when you see me walking the Expo floor or sitting in a session come say “Hi” and pull up a seat, no doubt we will have lots to talk about.  What? Who am I?…oh sorry.. I am Dave Peck, I blog at NewMediaChatter.

Planning Your Podcast At Blog World Expo? We Just Made It Easy!

Author:

Our new identity this year is to also be the trade show for not just the blogging world, but after our merger with the podcasting and video world of the New Media Expo in 2008, we want to include the podcasters as well.  palegroove_studios We have been trying to find ways to allow our podcasters that will be attending our event not to miss a beat and to be allowed to record their own podcasts on the show floor “live”.  We have accomplished that this year with the folks at Podcast Tuneup who are bringing some university students and with Kris Smith of Palegroove Studios. We are setting up 4 separate podcasting stations where you as a podcaster can set up a time to record your own session live from BlogWorld & New Media Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada.  You wont have to miss a beat and can do your own shows and get them up on your own site.

PCTU We are scheduling 30 minutes at a time and if you need more than 30 minutes just let us know so we can accommodate your schedule.  We will have staff and equipment ready for you to use beginning Friday morning when the show begins and ending on Saturday when the exhibit floor closes.  Set up your time to record live from the Exhibit Floor! You can sign up in the form provided, or you can contact Kris Smith at 646.657.8484, to schedule your time.  Kris is also available to handle you technical questions and any information you need to get your podcast recorded, uploaded and broadcast to your community!

If you want to tell all of your fans that you will be broadcasting live from BlogWorld & New Media Expo, now is your chance.  They can watch you conduct your show, participate as guests or how ever it makes sense for you!  It’s your show!

Introduction and Serious Request

Author:

For a number of reasons, I want to introduce Tammy Munson to you today. Tammy is a panelist on the milblog track, taking part in the “They Also Serve: Spouse Bloggers” panel.

I will skip the normal introductions and short bio for now, and ask you to go read this post instead. You can go here after that to find out more about Tammy.

Please keep the families and friends of those who lost their lives in the battle(s) you are now finally hearing about on the news in your thoughts and prayers. Please send good thoughts, prayers, or whatever you do to them, and to the wounded and their family and friends. As you read blogs or the news, keep in mind that these are real people, and that they are family, friends, acquaintances and more to those in the milblog community.

Come Out from Behind Your Blog and Take Your Networking to a Whole New Level

Author:

Face to Face

One of the reasons many bloggers dig blogging and social networking is enjoying online conversations. They’re  talking with like-minded people about the topics in which they share a common passion. Think of how much farther you can take those conversations if you bring them totally offline – away from the 140 characters or blog comment limitations online communication provides.

Ten years ago if you suggested people get out and meet the folks they talk with online, there would be a large outcry. We’d hear about stranger danger and cyber stalking. While that’s does happen, that’s not what I’m referring to. Times have changed and there’s safety in numbers. I’m talking about conferences, meetups and tweetups. I’m talking about taking those online relationships another level by bringing them offline.

Since I began attending conferences, summits and Tweetups, I made new friends, networked with potential clients and even collaborated on some amazing projects with people I never would have known if I wasn’t interacting online. (Hey, if I wasn’t attending conferences, I wouldn’t have landed this cushy gig!).

This is my challenge to you: Online is fun. We all share a common love of social media. Take those tools, the Twitter, the blogs, the forums, the Facebook and use them to build offline relationships. Start real time conversations with the people who intrigue you. Find some projects to work on with the folks who share your passion. Get out from behind your blogs, shut down your laptops and make a difference offline.

Then come back here and let me know how it worked out for you.
