This post is a shout out to all my fellow blogging and new media buddies! And a note to you my faithful and cherished Live Fix readers!
This Thurs-Sat (Oct 15-17), I’ll be taking Live Fix on the road to Las Vegas for the BlogWorld New Media Expo.
BlogWorld will be my first “blogger conference” since I began Live Fix, so I’m excited to connect with and learn along with other bloggers.
I’m looking forward to soaking up everything from the growing influence of mommy bloggers to the impact of social media on the music industry. Local Chicago blog network ChicagoNow will be talking about how they created their community. And some of my favorite bloggers (Chris Brogan and Copyblogger) will also be speaking so I’ll be sure to share with you what I learn. I’ll also be writing a feature story for Popmatters about the key points during the conference as various industry leaders chime in on the state of the blogosphere, New Media and social media.
I expect it to be a huge learning experience and I hope that what I learn in Vegas doesn’t stay in Vegas, because I plan on returning with more ideas for future Live Fix Experiments that we can test out.
Send me your Vegas tips!
This will be my first time visiting Las Vegas, so if you’re a Vegas veteran let me know if there’s something live music related that I should check out while I’m there.
If you’re going too, please drop a comment or send me an email or a tweet. I’d love to connect with you during the conference!
I’ll be doing updates during the BlogWorld conference via Twitter @chriscatania and Live Fix blog posts, so stay tuned…
