Blog World Expo - My First Time Here

By Ian Fernando

After having so much fun in Miami and meeting up with some of my readers, I flew out to Vegas to go to Blog World Expo. Blog World Expo is meant for bloggers and social marketers. This is the second event and I want to thank ShoeMoney and John Chow for letting me know how powerful the convention is. I already met up with Guy Kawasaki and many other users.

Well I arrived last night at about 5pm and I am looking forward to tonight. I have been invited to an Affiliate Dinner tonight, then the TechSet Party and then the Tweet gathering. Then tomorrow I am invited to a Super Blogger Dinner hosted by Market Leverage. Sunday I am relaxing! Ever since IZEAFest, I have been meeting a lot of new people. Also I have been partying a lot! Gosh!

Back to Blog World Expo

So far I have been tweeting pictures and statements via twitter. So follow me and you can see what I am tweeting about. Everyone here at Blog World talks about Twitter! I came to the event a little early and went to the B5 Media session and listened to a lot of B5 Media speakers. Even listening to Darren speak about top sources for traffic, I wrote some things down (well type it in my mac).

Well here are some pictures via my iPhone which I tweeted. Actual pictures will be uploaded once I get home on Monday.

So there will be more photos happening. I even have some videos ready but will be uploaded once I get home. If you already do not know blog World Expo is:

The first and only industry-wide tradeshow, conference, and media event dedicated to promoting the dynamic industry of blogging and new media. In addition to the only industry-wide exhibition, BlogWorld features the largest blogging conference in the world including more than 50 seminars, panel discussions and keynotes from iconic personalities on the leading-edge of online technology and internet-savvy business.

I was not going to attend BWE but peer pressure is a bitch. A lot of people were telling me about it and how it is one of the bigger blogging and social marketing conference. I even met up with Ted Murphy, I just seen him at IZEAFest! I also look forward to meeting some people as well such as Joe Tech, I know I will be meeting more people at the Tech Set Party - I want to thank Stephanie from Internet Geek Girl for the invite. I know tomorrow will be a bigger day! I know more bloggers are coming later tonight and even some cpa networks will be arriving later today. Officially Blog World does not start until tomorrow. I hope to see more people tomorrow and speak to some of my readers.

For right now I am going to watch some TV and get back to Blog World Expo, luckily I can take the monorail because walking in this heat can be a pain. I think I lost some weight from all the walking at IZEAFest, Miami, Orlando, and now Vegas! Well time to rest watching some Law and Order then off to see Gary Vaynerchuk
