2010 Blog World Expo Show Floor

The 2010 Blog World Expo show floor opened today to let everyone network face to face with the companies that are driving blogging and social media. The show floor was a quite a bit bigger than last year and attendance was estimated at 5,000 by Blog World producers. If that is true, then Blog World has nearly doubled in size in just one year.

In addition to the show floor, I had two panel sessions and a book signing to do. All went well. I sold out the Blog World bookstore for my book, Make Money Online: Roadmap of a Dot Com Mogul. Thanks to everyone for coming. Of the two sessions I was in, the 60 tips in 60 minutes was the most fun. We made a bunch of “magic 8 ball” answers to questions that we got from the audience and put them up as slides. Some of those answers include:

  • Zac Johnson will date you if you ask nicely
  • If at first you don’t succeed, so much for sky diving
  • No one cares what you say, unless you buy advertising…and John Chow’s book
  • When you get kicked from behind, you’re in front
  • The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese
  • When everything’s coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane
  • Have fun with your blog. Don’t worry if it doesn’t make any money. You still have your job
  • Don’t take anything we say seriously

Here are some photos from the show floor and one photo from the Blogger Super Panel taken by Naomi Trower.

    1. d3so says:

      lol, definitely looks like a fun place to be.

      1. 60 answers in 60 minutes must have been fun both for you and the audience.

        The four of you on the stage look cool, especially Shoemoney with his shorts.

        1. d3so says:

          A minute per question probably didn’t get the question answered properly.

          1. This was really funny though –

            ” No one cares what you say, unless you buy advertising…and John Chow’s book “

    •No one cares what you say, unless you buy advertising…and John Chow’s book.

    There’s no success on the internet unless you make John richer 😉 Actually I believe it.

    1. Brian P says:

      Yea man I am starting to believe it too!

    2. Yeah, but don’t forget the free e-book. That thing is really helpful.

      1. Iman says:

        John’s free e-book on this site is the best of the bests!

  12. Stop it John. I really wanted to go to Vegas this weekend and the fact that I have missed the show and all the great speakers was bad enough, now I have to see how great the conference displays are too 🙂

  13. Bidet says:

  17. Wow, they weren’t playing around. You weren’t an attendee. You were a featured guest. Awesome!

  18. Looks like a great event. I always mean to get to more of these, but I never seem to find the time!
