30+ Brilliant Bloggers Talk About BlogWorld New York 2012


I doing know about you, but I think I’m finally caught up on sleep after BlogWorld New York! We made some huge announcements this time around, including our name change to New Media Expo, which better reflects our entire audience of not just bloggers, but also podcasters, web TV producers, social media professionals, and more.

So, I guess this was officially the very last BlogWorld! It’s time to start an exciting new chapter in this conference’s life.

People are still buzzing about the New York event, though, so before closing the book on BlogWorld, I wanted to devote this week’s Brilliant Bloggers to our awesome community and what they have to say about the event.

If you don’t see your BlogWorld New York post listed below, please leave a comment and I’ll add it to the list! Also, check out the bonus list of top tweets from the conference!

       @Bennyhsu So glad you could make it out to the show!

    • allison_boyer

       @Bennyhsu It’s always interesting to read the different perspectives about the same event. I’m glad so many people choose to write about it, though – gives us a really good idea of what we’re doing right and what we could be doing better.

    Cheers, Allison! It was great attending BlogWorld (and this was the first I was able to manage) and I look forward to connecting soon. 

    • WordsDoneWrite

       @jasonkonopinski See you in Vegas, Jason!

    • allison_boyer

       @jasonkonopinski Hope to see you in Vegas too, Jason! It can sometimes be hard to justify the expense of travel for a conference, but I think BlogWorld really delivers and is well worth the money.

  • RienekeSchokker

    Wow, my tweet is labeled as briljant, thank you 🙂 BlogWorld was amazing, my amazing-people-I-met-and-really-want-to-follow-online-list contains so many great writers now that I don’t have enough time to read everything. Definetly will be back next year!
