If You’re at BlogWorld Expo Here’s Where We Can Connect

Posted By Darren Rowse 18th of September 2008 ProBlogger Site News 0 Comments

A few people have been asking about my schedule at Blog World Expo and where we can meet. Following is my schedule so far.

Win a Dinner with the Money Blogger Panel

Also – as part of the ‘Make Money Blogging’ panel we’re running a competition where you can win a free dinner at a nice steakhouse with the panelists. Market Leverage is picking up the tab and it’ll be dinner with Shoemoney, John Chow, Zach Johnson, Jim Kukral, Brian Clark and myself.

To put yourself in the draw to win you need to do two things:

  1. Add your name to the following form (don’t worry, the list will be deleted after BWE – its just to help us fairly choose a winner).
  2. Be at the Panel – we’ll draw the winner at the end.

If you don’t do both unfortunately you’ll not be able to win.

Here’s where you add your name:


My Schedule at BWE (these are the public parts anyway)

Friday 19th

All Day – b5 blogger summit – a full day of training that b5media is putting on for our bloggers. It is actually open to anyone with a BWE registration for free. See details on how to RSVP here. I’ll be doing a session on ‘finding readers’ at 11am. One addition to the shedule of this day is that Muhammad Saleem is going to do part of my session also!

3.30pm-4.45pm – How to Hire a Professional Blogger for Your Business – Panel at the Exec day of BWE.

6.30pm-8pm – Digital Photography School Photowalk – about 60 people are registered for this so far. Photographer Kris Krug is going to lead the walk. Get the full details of this here.

Saturday 20th

11am – 12pmMaking Money Online with a Blog – the panel that I mentioned above.

12.30 – 1pm – Book signing at the Blog World Expo bookstore (I’ve never signed a book in my life – this one will feel a little odd I’m sure)

6pm – Dinner with Make Money Blogging Panel (register above)

7.30pm onwards – BWE Opening Party

Sunday 21st

3pm – 4pmAvoiding Disaster: How Not to Use Social Media – another panel, this one on social media.

Outside of these times I’ve got a few other meetings and b5media gatherings planned and am looking forward to hanging at the b5media booth (we’re playing poker) and taking in as many of the sessions as I can.

I’d Love to Meet You

Apart from after the Money panel where I have to go sign some books I’ll hang around as long as I can after each one because I really want to meet as many people as possible and I know that with panels it can be hard to get all questions answered.

If you’re at BWE, please do come up and say hi – I’d love to meet you! Don’t be shy (I’m a shy guy myself) – please just come say hi!

  • This expo looks incredible and next year I have a firm belief that I will be able to afford to go (even if I have to fly economy and stay in the cheapest motel around). I really want to be there next year as blogging is going to be my main form on income in 12 months time as well as product sales and affilaite sales from my database of subscribers.
    Look forward to seeing you, not this year ;-( but next year

  • BTW darren do you live in Sydney? Because I do and maybe I can meet up with you at an event in Sydney?
    Are there any blogging events in Sydney?

  • I can’t wait to meet you and everyone else! It’s not in my nature to meet new people, but I’m psyching myself up and will be ready to be a fake extrovert! (Fingers are crossed that I’ll win dinner with the Power Panel!)

  • I’m very excited about attending BWE .. I’ll be at the “Making Money Online” panel event and hope to be able to say Hi.

  • It is really crazy that you have not been talking about this event very much on your blog. Every other blogger I know that is their has only been talking about this event and is actually getting really annoying. You should feel proud that you are not being as annoying as all the other bloggers at that event. People reading those blogs what information and now all we are getting is a whole bunch of bull honkey.

  • Ahhh Darren, you’re inspiring me to become more and more of a blog fanatic!

    How I’d love to give up my day job and traverse the world to blog expos!!

  • Awwww! I so wish I was going. I’m just a beginner blogger so maybe Ill be ready for it next year.

  • Darren,

    I leave for Vegas tomorrow morning. I will see you on Friday for the b5 blogger summit, the Photowalk and dinner on Saturday! It is going to be a busy weekend. :)


  • Looking forward to the Photowalk and several of your panels… can’t wait to be in Vegas tomorrow!

  • Can’t wait to meet you! Would love to get your opinion on my new free ebook too…

  • See ya there Darren! Going to E&E on Friday, but paths will cross. Will definitely be at the money panel and plan to win the dinner! :-)

  • Looking forward to seeing you and sharing the panel with you. I have a signing, too, and it’s also my first! I’m going to try to make it to yours.

  • Alas, I can’t make it to your first panel because I have a conflict, but I will definitely drop by b5. I’m also planning to come to your second session.

  • Hey Darren,
    Looks like you have a nice schedule going for you. Book signings should be really fun. I would love to meet you sometime but really haven’t been able to catch you at any conferences. I won’t be able to attend Blog World Expo this year and am really kicking myself for it. In fact, I just wrote a post called “7 Things You Can Do If You’re Not Going to Blog World Expo” – for all of us left behind. This looks to be an amazing event and I hope you tear it up in your speaking panels. Good luck!

  • Hi Darren, it was nice to meet you at the Expo! It was also cool that they had copies of your book for sale. I picked up a copy and enjoyed reading it on my flight back home. I actually managed to finish it too as it’s an easy-flowing quick read with lots of goodies.
