A belated post about Blog World Expo. I hope it will inspire more bloggers to go to Las Vegas in September 2008. Especially a few more Australians. There were 3 of us Simon Chen from Eight Black, and Des and myself
Blog world expo was truly amazing. This was about learning, community, networking, friendship, conversation, playing and more. A non stop 3 day blast. A big thank you goes to Rick Calvert, Dave Taylor and all the team at Blog World Expo. The vision achieved so successfully. What a wonderful community to be part of.
It was great to meet the many blogging evangelists, the bloggers who have helped me grow my blog and bloggers I have bumped into through carnivals and just around the blogosphere.
I also realized how important it is to have a photo of yourself on your blog. Makes it so easy to connect.
And now for just a few of the people I connected with over the 3 days. It is quite amazing when you first meet people you have only had contact through the web- it’s like meeting a long lost friend and the conversation flows readily.
Rich Brooks, from Flyte commented on this after we had dinner on the first evening in Las Vegas.
I met many bloggers who I have learnt and am still learning from.
And not to forget the wonderful parties and thanks to
The wonderful Pyjama Party sponsored by Pajamas Media, with wonderful food, great music and lots of fun.
As these photos show there were some people who dressed for the occasion
Sim from Utterz Kirsten Neher
And the final Party on Friday night sponsored by Gerard Ramos from Zappos
which we went to in a Limo , well negotiated by Dave Taylor
