Blog World Expo – Day 1 Photos


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.

It Was One Interview After Another

Look for more giveaways real soon! Tonight we are having dinner with Kontera and then heading to the Blog World party at the Hard Rock. It should be a good time! Look for more photos later.

  8. MoneyNing says:

    This is great stuff! It must be good to be you if everyone just wants to do interviews with you and treat you to dinner 🙂

  9. Success says:

    it’s pretty kool when john chow take pics at these expo’s. he does all the work, while we kick back and enjoy.

  18. Hey bloggers can be goodlooking? 😯

  19. Shaun Carter says:

    That’s too bad Technorati couldn’t get their heads out of their ass long enough to explain why you’re number 41 but not on the top 100 list.

  20. johnny card says:

    john chow the rockstar, i can totally see it. hey i’d want my pic taken with him:-)

  21. Brad says:

    Entrecard girls look HOT… too bad their product sucks!

  22. Ivy says:

    Looks like you were having a blast! It will be interesting to read the interviews that were done. Maye you could charge them for placing an ad on your blog so that we can read all the interviews about you… 👿

  24. karu says:

  25. K. says:

    haha at the last picture. What’s that in the cup? 😀
    it’s either you’re a real tall person or everybody was really, really short. Anyhow, looks like you had a blast. I wish I could’ve been there.


  26. Hey, there’s MillionDollarWiki Graham’s new venture?

  28. Teejay says:

  29. Gdog says:

  36. Rhys says:

  37. Garth says:

    1. I noticed that too. I want to ask the same question

      1. Neil Duckett says:

  42. Great stuff! Enjoy the rest of the Blog World Expo 😀

  43. Looks like an awesome conference

  44. John or any other reader that might know the answer:

    How come you stopped using Kontera ads? I just noticed it today, and could not find out why.

  45. Hoto says:

    look like you guys haveing a lot of fun !!! 😈

  46. Humility does not become you John. Had I been there I too would have reacted the same way. Come on, it must have done your self esteem a world of good! Be honest.

  47. Philip says:

    Watch out John! ONE DAY the media’s are all gonna be attracted to me and NOT YOU! Haha just joking. If that day really comes I’m gonna tell them that ‘I am who I am today because of John Chow!’ You really inspired me alot. For that I thank you!

  48. Huh … Have you all find something very interesting in those pictures?

    I think John Chow is the tallest in the pictures. How tall are you John Chow? 6′ ##”?

    The bottom picture looks funny… Two big balls between ….
    I believe many people will want to get such attention ….

  49. Rebecca says:

    I see that you met sneaky bastard there. I am glad to see that he’s working hard promoting his new movie.

  50. Vince Panero says:

    Thanks for the interview John! I didn’t know you had a picture taken of us; I borrowed and posted it. Thanks for the opportunity, and enjoy the rest of the craziness…. 🙂

  51. ms danielle says:

    this is one of the best networking events i’ve ever been to. any bloggers coming to this event will definitely benefit. nice meetin ya!

    btw, wendy piersall is right now sitting at the table next to me 😀

  52. You’re tall! 😯

  53. You really need to come up with your own logo so you can put it on your own shirt design!

  54. You seem to always get some good shots with the ladies 😎 Did you get nervous for any of the interviews?

  55. bloggernoob says:
