Blogging, Setting World Records At BlogWorld 2010


It may be my first day back in the office after SMX East but there aint no rest for the wicked around here. It’s almost time to pack up and head out again!

On Wednesday, I’ll be heading to Sin City to attend BlogWorldExpo and I’m super amped about it. Because while I love all you SEO folk dearly, as a blogger there’s nothing quite like attending a conference full of bloggery people that I can talk to about bloggery things. Some people do hard drugs to experience euphoria. I go to BlogWorld every October.

I value my sanity, so I won’t be liveblogging this time around. However, to help folks at home experience the magic with me, I will be writing recaps of some of the sessions I find most interesting and sharing tips that I think will benefit readers. I have my schedule somewhat mapped out in my head, but I’m curious to hear what YOU want me to cover.

Here’s a look at the sessions I’m thinking of hitting and writing about. Take a look at the BlogWorld schedule and tell me what you’d like to see covered next week. I’ll try my best to incorporate as many of your suggestions as I can, or grab interviews with the speakers you’re most interested in hearing from.

On Friday, October 15 I’m going to take a little break from attending sessions in order to do something pretty cool. I’ll be pairing up with the folks at Gourmet Gift Baskets to help them break the Guinness Book of World Records for the World’s Largest Coffee Cup. I’ve been given the honor of pouring the very LAST cup of coffee when the record is declared. How cool is that?! So if you’re going to be in Vegas, come to booth #335 next Friday (Oct. 15) and cheer me on. It’s sure to be a lot of fun.

And that’s it! Are you coming to BlogWorld? If so, let me know in the comments. Also, don’t forget to share the sessions you’re most interested in hearing about.

Your Comments

  • Don’t spill, Lisa!

    Every drop counts!

    No beans should be wasted!


  • Honored to see my session on your list.

    • Maybe I’ll actually introduce myself this time. ;)

  • Looking forward to seeing you there, Lisa!

    • Looking forward to seeing you as well! :)

  • I cannot tell you how badly I want to be there. It just wasn’t meant to be this year. So sad. Just let them know that if they need someone to DRINK that largest ever cup of coffee, i WILL hop on a bus.

    And you know this, MAAAAAAAAANNNN!

  • Neither of my 2 sessions on there :( But I don’t blame you, the ones in my time slots seem much more suited to you. :)

    • I was going to cover the SEO for Blogs session…but then the world record thing came up. I figured I could just interview you boys later, if necessary. :)

      • Yeah, that sounds awesome. I figured you’ve had enough SEO anyway, a change of pace would be good.

        • I just hope i’ll be able to see some of the sessions this year!

  • Breaking records is a big freaking deal. Definitely up your alley! ;)

    Since I’ll be talking Friday afternoon, I hope you’ll get photos… to be published in the Guinness book perhaps?! ;)

  • I will be attending my first BlogWorld. It will be interesting to see how different it is from other internet conferences I have been to. Can’t wait! Should be an awesome time.

  • Yowsa. I am green with envy at your schedule. Especially the coffee-cup thing. It’s probably just as well that I’m not going…I see a large amount of coffee and I’m inclined to dive right in.

    My boss (Ric Dragon/DragonSearch) will be there. He suggested I look you up here…(my consolation prize?).

    But you?? You are EVERYWHERE! Can’t wait to hear all the deets-

  • I would also like to be there. I hope Lisa will write about their experience.
