I was looking over the list of the bloggers to watch that was put together over at Darren Rowse’s blog at Problogger by Jade Craven. The list is put together as a resource for bloggers to watch that can help others become better bloggers. The list is great and I know of most of the bloggers there and will bookmark the remaining people that I am not familiar with for reading more in 2010. I would love to have each of these bloggers provide a guest post here at BlogWorld & New Media Expo’s blog and I hope I get to meet them at the show this October. After all, we are here to provide the best of the best of information about blogging. The invitation is open to all of them to give us a post and provide our readers with their wisdom.
I read a large number of blogs. I have more than a 1000 unread feeds that I keep track of in Google Reader, BlogLines and other places like FriendFeed, Twitter and Facebook to name only a few. I try to keep my finger on the pulse of what is going on in the blogosphere, but posts like these are great to keep me apprised of who is blogging and what they are writing about. I think I have been a subscriber of Darren’s blog now since Problogger was just beginning. I knew then he was a great blogger and one to watch. I am keeping my eye out and ear to the ground.
What bloggers do you feel were left off the list that I need to watch? Is your name on a list? Perhaps you could let me know what your blog URL is and I can read yours too!
When you think of a rockstar who comes to mind? For me it’s folks like Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, the Beatles, etc. Now when you think of a blogosphere rockstar who do you think of? Chances are whatever person you just though of is going to be at blog world expo this year!
We have 200 speakers at blog world expo and guess what? They are all rockstars of the blogosphere. I’m talking about folks like:
- Laura Fitton (Pistachio on Twitter)
- Chris Brogan
- Brian Solis
- Shawn Collins
- Robert Scoble
- Lee Odden
Just to name a few. We are also going to feature leading military and political bloggers such as:
- Matt Burden (Black Five)
- Greyhawk (Mudville Gazette)
- Jane Hamsher (Firedog Lake)
- Erin Kotecki Vest (Queen of Spain)
Bloggers from virtually every industry are going to be at this event to lend their ideas and experiences to other bloggers from around the world. If you are a seasoned blogger or someone who is just looking to get started with a blog, you are going to find invaluable insight and networking opportunities.
One of the things we are most excited about this year at blogworld expo is the “blockbuster” panel which is going to feature some of the true “rockstars” of blog monetizations. The session, “Making Money Online with a Blog,” will be moderated by leading expert, Jim Kukral. Panel participants include big-time money making bloggers – John Chow, Brian Clark, Zac Johnson, Darren Rowse, and Shoemoney. This panel is going to be one you are not going to want to miss.
