BlogWorld Expo 2010 just finished up in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
We had a booth at the conference for Affiliate Summit, and met up with lots of interesting folks that are looking to monetize their blogs, videos and podcasts.
Here is the view from the Affiliate Summit booth…
During some downtime, we got tattoo sleeves.
In addition to talking up Affiliate Summit West 2011 to visitors to our booth, we also announced a new feature of Affiliate Summit, the Monetize Summit.
This will be a special track at Affiliate Summit West 2011 that focuses on monetizing content. The theme of Monetize Summit is “It’s OK to Monetize”, and this really resonated with the BlogWorld crowd, as many visitors told us they can’t figure out how to earn income from their work.
There was a feeling among some bloggers in attendance that they would be selling out be earning money on their blogs. Some people just can’t be saved.
Also during BlogWorld, my Affiliate Thing podcast co-host, Lisa Picarille, joined us to conduct audio interviews that will be posted in the near future.
One of my favorite booths was from BlackBerry – I got to meet up with some people from my tribe to celebrate the best smartphone – the BlackBerry Torch.
In one of the more disturbing moments of BlogWorld, Jason Rubacky of ShareASale fashioned a mullet out of hair extensions to cultivate something of a Joe Dirt look.
Towards the end of BlogWorld, B. Bonin Bough and Stephanie Agresta held a signing for their book “Perspectives on Social Media Marketing,” and I got an autographed copy – thanks guys!
I’ll be reviewing that one in the near future.
I didn’t have a chance to see any breakout sessions, since I was at the booth, but I did get to peek in on the closing keynote.
This was a sort of talkshow format featuring Cali Lewis, Rob Barnett, Adam Carolla, Penn Jillette, and Jeff Hayzlett.
