Blogging, Setting World Records At BlogWorld 2010by Lisa Barone on 10/08/2010 • 14 Comments | Internet Marketing Conferences
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.
