While we've established that none of you guys know what the hell you're doing - except going to cocktail parties - any ideas of which ones I should pick for Day Two?

Cos this such a fascinating topic, I'll be back AGAIN (in a 'Ross married Rachel in Vegas and got divorced - AGAIN' tone of voice) (OH MY GOD SHUT UP ABOUT VEGAS FOR THE LOVE OF GOD) (umm, where was I?) tomorrow to let you know the seminars I'm thinking of attending. Can't wait!


  1. Ok, here's what I have written down, but who knows if I'll stick to it when we get there.

    Day one:
    Session #1 FAQ for Beginning Bloggers
    #2 DIY Content Syndication & Promotion
    #3 either the writing workshop or I'll just wander around talking to people

    Day Two:
    #1 Women without children (one of the women speaking is SueBob from Red Stapler)
    #2 Photography
    #3 the Photowalk

    Those are the ones on my list, though I think I would be interested in just about all of the topics except those geared to Mommyblogging, since I'm not a mommy, unless you count my cat. ;)

  2. Hey, Bri, I'm not a mommy either, but I AM on the Mommy panel as a speaker. Go figure!?

    Missy: Drop by if you can. (And thanks for the comment today). Safe travels...

  3. Have a great time at the conference!!!

    kari & kijsa

  4. bri: Yay, someone who knows what they're doing! Now I suppose I should make a list as well. Pretty sure I'll see you in some of those sessions.

    pamela jeane and k&k: Thanks guys. Will do.

  5. yeah i am having issues figuring out which ones to attend as well. so many options!

  6. It sounds like for a lot of the people attending, the really tough decisions will be in deciding which of the parties to attend, and get smashed at...
