BlogWorld New York is now one for the history books. This was our second year in The Big Apple and my first time at an East Coast social media event. Overall, I was humbled to be a part of something so powerful and, yet, so magical.
First off, kudos to the amazing speakers who flew in from all over the globe to present at BlogWorld. There were 240 of them to be exact and every single one of them make our community stronger. After every session, I saw speakers staying to chat with attendees, answering questions, and giving advice. There are some really popular people in our space, but the amazing thing about BlogWorld is that everyone checks their egos at the door. It’s all about helping attendees and enriching the community. Man, that rocks.
Thank you, as well, to all of you who came out in force! Our attendees are just some of the nicest people out there. Hands down. YOU are why BlogWorld exists and the reason why this community is so amazing. Thank you!
Logo Design Contest
For those of you who have inquired about the New Media Expo logo design contest, we’ll be releasing submission guidelines sometime this month. Stay tuned and start thinking of those ideas. The prize is pretty sweet. For the new kids in class, the winner gets $5,000, a LIFETIME pass to our conferences, an all-expenses paid trip to Las Vegas in January, and more! Worth playin’ for, right?
Speaker Submissions for Las Vegas
This week (probably tomorrow) we’ll be announcing details about speaker submissions for our next big show in Las Vegas. We’re all about finding the best speakers for our conferences, but that in no way means you have to be a “big name” to get on our speaker roster. There are some amazing up and comers in our space who have lots of great information to share, so everyone is welcome to submit a proposal. I mean, even the “big guys” started off as “little guys,” right? So in other words, if you have an idea, send in a proposal!
