Who’s Going to BlogWorld?

I’m attending the BlogWorld and New Media Expo for the third year in a row. The first year I was nervous and didn’t know what to expect. I’m sort of shy when it comes to meeting people and BlogWorld ’07 was the first time I traveled alone. I didn’t know what to expect or even if it was a good idea, I only knew that I wanted to meet other bloggers.

I needn’t have worried. BlogWorld turned out to be an important event and career boost. I met many of my bloggy idols, potential clients and people who I now call “friend.” I learned the importance of networking at BlogWorld and since have attended many other conferences.

Is anyone from the FWJ community attending BlogWorld next week? If so, I’d love to arrange some sort of meetup.

P.S. Did you know I’m a blogger for the BlogWorld blog? Stop by and say hey sometime.

  1. never heard of it. where/what is it, and what exactly did you get out of it? whenever i attend conferences I seem to have fun but get very little business from it… that plus coming home to a frazzled husband and a huge pile of overdue work has made me steer clear of most conferences in recent years!

  2. Have fun at BlogWorld! I hope in the future I can go to a conference like this one.

    Unfortunately I’ve never been to BlogWorld. I’d like to attend it someday. I always read great things about it and I understand the importance of in-person networking for a freelance writer’s career.
