So what's the deal here, Frankie? Are we supposed to be entirely (ahem) serious about the stated purpose, or may we be allowed to laugh up our respective sleeves from time to time about the ever so serious business of blogging? I can try to be circumspect if absolutely necessary, but as you know already, it'd be a stretch. XOX
Okay. Here's the deal. Wendy needs a J.O.B., Michael is seeking a position, and I want to be rich, RICH I TELL YOU, RICH BEYOND YOUR WILDEST DREAMS!Oops. Sorry. Serious business at hand here.Think Comdex. Think Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey. While the world has little need for just another blog conference, there is a compelling need for more circuses.Let's agree that we are are planning an event broader in scope than the blog conferences we have experienced, that there will be costs associated with creating the event and that the wonderful thing about capitalism is that it provides a way for us to recover the costs and earn a profit! No, not the Willie Sutton thing.So I guess I should ask... what would you expect to see and do at a three and a half day World Blog Expo? What would you most want to do? What would you like to learn? To teach? Who would you like to meet? What would you like to eat?What would your company pay for the best insights into Content Management? Syndication? How much would it be worth to you as a supplier to pitch a tent in the center of the caravansary?Do you belly dance?How do we earn the right to produce this show? is chutzpah alone enough for success?
