Now crossed off, number one on my to-do list for this lovely Monday morning was: register for BlogWorld & New Media Expo. Thanks again to BlogWorld's CEO and Founder, Rick Calvert, for donating my conference registration and hotel. And, to Scott Allen for hosting the LinkedIntelligence contest.
Discounted registration closes this Friday, October 19. The event begins on November 7 with an executive and entrepreneurial conference.
On November 8 and 9, the conference spreads out over six tracks: beginners, advanced, podcasting and new media, enterpreneur, monetization, executive, sports, political and milblogs [military blogs].
BlogWord's Facebook event site shows almost 100 registered faces. I'm going because a.] I won the prize; b.] I like meeting and interacting with other bloggers, c.] I love learning at conferences and d.] it's a good excuse to visit Vegas and see the moon over Bellagio.
After balancing my personal need to know versus what my students need me to teach, I signed up for these sessions:
