Why You Should Come To BlogWorld If You Are A Content Creator

Author:

Chris Brogan is a person I greatly admire and respect and I am proud to call a friend. This morning he wrote a post titled 9 Ways to Rock BlogWorld Expo and said some very nice things about our event and our team.  Thank you Chris.

I was in the middle of writing this very long comment on his post expanding on some of his points and realized Chris had actually inspired me to write a post two posts of my own on why you should come to BlogWorld. This one is for Content Creators. Another will follow for Brands.

Let’s start with why you shouldn’t. This line from his post resonated with me:

it’s great to get out and socialize. It’s less useful to get out and get blotto so that you can barely attend the next day

Everyone should come and have fun. That is definitely a part of it and fun often times involves an alcoholic beverage or two, but BlogWorld is not about getting trashed.

Dave and I and truly amazing team of people including @newmediapatti @debng @jenjenholder @nikki_blogworld @allison_boyer all of our track leaders, all of our speakers, the Hanley Wood team and everyone else involved in organizing BlogWorld work extremely hard on this event all year long to help you make the most out of your content.  Please don’t come to BlogWorld to party in Vegas. You can do that another weekend.

BlogHaus at SxSW

Author:

SxSW interactive officially opened registration yesterday morning and had some preliminary panels yesterday afternoon but today things really kicked off when the BlogHaus (sponsored by AMD, b5 media, and Podtech) opened. The blogeratti was out in force and social media gurus were elbow to elbow in the jam packed room. Robert Scoble, Chris Heuer, Chris Brogan, Brian Solis, Liz Straus, Jim Turner, Maggie Fox, Jeremy Wright, Hugh MacLoud, Wendy Piersal, Jason Falls, Darren Rowse, Kris Smith and far too many others to name.

What is a BlogHaus?

Just as blogging, podcasting, et-al is the future of media think of the Bloghaus and other iterations like it as the future of the old fashioned press room. Mogulus is live streaming interviews the lounge.

Stephanie Agresta AKA Internet Geek Girl and Valerie Cunningham from Podtech did a fantastic job organizing the lounge.

It is really great to see companies like AMD understanding the value of engaging the blogosphere and investing in the space so I thought it was appropriate to interview Scott Carroll the PR Manager from AMD who coordinated AMD’s involvement in the BlogHaus.
