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.
