Blog World is the first convention I’ve ever been to where I was some kind of Internet superstar. I lost track on the number of time someone came up to me and said, “OMG! You’re John Chow! Can I take a picture with you?” It’s quite humbling really. I didn’t expect this type of attention when walking the Blog World show floor.
The funniest event of the day was when I was at the Technorati booth. They asked me to look up my Technorati rank so they can put it on a sticker for me to wear. When I told the guy my rank was 41, he said, “No way!” Then he came over to check and said, “Oh, you’re John Chow.” Technorati didn’t give me a very good answer on why I wasn’t in the official top 100. Here are more photos from day 1 of Blog World.
