Well, we are getting close to the event, it's just about nine days away. The people who attended last year were asked what panels they wanted, and we were able to deliver:
So, last year we asked those attending what they would like to see on this year's track. We listened, and have a stellar line up that should be of interest to all attending Blog World.
Our first panel on Thursday is at 1:30 pm (1330 hours) and featuresdocumentary film maker and communications consultant JD Johannes talking on "Quit F'ing Guessing: Using Math and Behavioral Economics to Win the Battle of Ideas" He will be sharing tried and proven means of measuring and maximizing the impact of your blog.
Our second panel starts at 2:45 pm (1445 hours) and features Jim Brown of Slingshot SEO, talking on "SEO for Specialty Content" He will be exploring how SEO and content marketing are not just for large blogs, but especially important for those dealing with specialized content.
The final panel starts at 3:45 (1545 hours) and deals with the very serious topic of "Blogging Through Loss." Rachel Porto, a military widow, and Mandy Myers, who's lineman husband was killed on the job, will talk about the ups and downs of dealing with the loss of a loved one while sharing life and loss in new and social media.
