I just got back from a whirlwind trip to Las Vegas for BlogWorld Expo 2008. As I write this, the show is still going on, but I needed to skip out early.
Yesterday, I was on a panel with Tim Jones and Mike Allen about monetizing blogs with affiliate programs. I videotaped it, and if it came out, I’ll get it digitized and up for anybody who wasn’t able to make it.
Here are my co-panelists sporting the wares of VanityKippah.com during the session:
When I went into the speaker ready room before my session, I saw a treat – Angel Djambazov of JonesSoda.com, PopShops.com, and ReveNews.com had created some custom Jones Soda bottles for a bunch of bloggers, including John Chow, Zac Johnson, Jim Kukral, and myself.
It was an enjoyable show, as I got to meet lots of folks I follow on Twitter, learn a thing or two, and get to meet some folks, whose creations I use, in the exhibit hall, like Disqus and WordPress.
But the conference did have a serious, scary moment. My Affiliate Summit partner, Missy Ward, was motoring through the exhibit hall in her scooter, while posting a Tweet, and she mowed down Mike Buechele of 11|15 Media. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Buechele.
The moral of the story… Friends Don’t Let Friends Drive While Tweeting.
