I Have Passes To BlogWorld Expo Los Angeles! Who Wants One?

BlogWorld & New Media Expo will be coming to the city of Los Angeles for the first ever and I have five passes to give away! BlogWorld L.A. happens November 3 – 5 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. This is the first and only industry-wide conference, trade show and media event for all new media. If you’re looking to take your blogging to the next level, then attending BlogWorld is a must. Here’s how to get there.

Five Passes Up For Grabs

I am giving away a 2-day pass, a 1-day pass and three Exhibits passes. To win the 1-day or 2-day pass, reply to this post explaining why I should give you the pass. The winner will be based on the quality of reply. I want to give the pass to someone who really wants it.

To win one of the Exhibits passes, send out the following message to your Twitter or Facebook account.

Hey! @johnchow is giving away passes to BlogWorld Expo Los Angeles! Get one here: http://johnchow.com?p=18550

The winners of the Exhibits passes will be done by a random drawing of all entries received.

Please only enter if you plan to go. The passes can not be resold. They will be coded to the winner’s name. I am only giving away the passes. I am not paying for airfare or hotel. I might invite you dinner in L.A. but other than that, you’re on your own for other expenses. The deadline for entry is the end of this month. The winners will be announced during Saturday’s Dot Com Pho. Good luck!

    Hi John,

    I want those tickets. I deserve them because I am the first one to get the tweet and ACT on it in a concise and thoughtful manner.

    I am not a newbie at all but it would be fun to meet you.

      You were the first one to Tweet it? How do you know?

      1. Onuora Amobi says:


        Read it again.

        First to get the Tweet and act on it.

        1. Frank Homme says:

          I’m so slow when it comes to these!

          Keep posting these great competitions John, they are awesome. Maybe next time I’ll be luckier 🙂

  2. d3so says:

    Hi John, Glad you got passes!
    I should get one because I gave you the idea, remember?
    Honestly, I deserve one because I’ve been working my butt off in front of a computer screen and have never done any face to face networking before. I’ve never attended any events related to the Internet marketing industry mainly because the location is too far. Los Angeles is only an hour from where I live and could definitely attend. I’ve also been a loyal reader and would love to meet you!

    This is a no-brainer, John.
    See you in LA!


    1. Would love to see d3so with you at there John ….

    2. I don’t know John. He’s got rather funky glasses.

  3. I really wish I could be there, but I live to far way. Next time. Great initiative John.

  4. Hi John you the man men, nice way to go, cool i like it 😉
    I also wanted to say thank you for writing a wonderful post about
    My 30 Favourite Free WordPress Themes For 2011
    You have been my inspiration from very very long time, now @ this moment when I am actually looking ahead to enter the blogging world!, this article was the Perfect thing that happened after I saw it on facebook!
    Thanks once again 😉
    Once again I’m your big fan! Way to go Johnchow. 🙂

  5. Should give to those who can really attend and meet John at there …

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      Yeah.. As for me it’s quite impossible to be there.

  6. Subodh says:

    I wish If I could attend it, but I am too far *sad*

  7. Hi John,

    I already have my pass to BWELA but I’d like to have one for a friend of Crystal’s. Tamara is going to start writing posts for my CFC & I plan to take her with me to learn the ropes & make great contacts. BlogWorld Expo will be the perfect start for her! See you in LA 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      You can’t enter on behalf of someone else. They have to do it themselves.

  8. Fun to see the Chow fanboys stumble in 🙂

    John, thanks for the invite but I’ll busy hosting my own event, which will have far more people attending – Blog Galaxy 2011, only accesible for blogs with PR0 and below 😉

    Don’t worry John. I just might be available next time.

  9. BOLAJI says:

    I wanna know may be i can join because am an Nigeria guy and have fill all the necessary things i have to do so can i join ?and i also want to know may be is real………………………

  10. Whitney says:

    This sounds really awesome…I would love to go. Although I’m not much on travel, but I have family in cali. It’s so nice out there! I know my girlfriend would LOVE this as well, we’re both bloggers. Thanks for the opportunity John!

  11. I’m a Los Angeles based travel writer working to transition my full time career from IT sales and marketing to tourism promotions and marketing consulting. I’m excited to see more blogger/social media conferences embracing the travel community and would LOVE to participate in the tourism track.

    I currently have an expo pass and have reached out to a couple of speakers and participants that I’d like to connect with but would also like to attend their sessions as well.

    Thanks for this opportunity, John! Fingers crossed!!

    1. chris says:

      Hi There,
      May you share with me your tourism promotion esp online
      Many Thanks

  12. fas says:

    Another sweet twitter contest 🙂

  13. Paul says:

    Here’s the deal John. Since January of this year I have been unemployed and instead of looking for another boring drab cubicle job I thought I would try to make a go at it at home with my internet properties. I could really use this as a way to elevate my blogging to the next level.

    Thanks ahead of time for your consideration.

  14. I deserve these passes because, as I watched France languish under the heel of the might of the English army, I had a vision. In this vision, an angel appeared to me and said, “You are the one who must lead the French to victory! Also, your small, but worthy agile development company is trying to get a handle on using social media effectively, and the things that you learn at a new media conference would be of great benefit to your company as well as enable the distribution of information to help developers all over Kansas City – a market desperately in need of someone to guide developers into better ways to build applications.”

    Actually, now that I think of it, some of that actually happened to Jeanne d’Arc. Also, Abraham Lincoln and I played tennis at the end of the vision. I’m still trying to figure that part out.

  15. Ken says:

    Hi John, I have been blogging for about a year now full time and run a natural men’s health website. You are one of my mentors along with a few other Super Affiliates who I follow regularly to learn from people who have achieved financial success so that I can achieve financial freedom. I live in LA and would love the opportunity to meet with you personally. Thanks, Ken

  16. Ken says:

    Hi John,

    I sent your message out on both Twitter and Facebook, in addition to leaving message on your post.

    Thanks, Ken

  17. I should win because I’m a woman! Just kidding. I would love to win since I recently (May) started blogging and have been going non stop since – I’ve fallen in love with the industry and am constantly learning and implementing new things. I really want the opportunity to learn from others and absorb the knowledge others have to share so I can become great! Not to mention I’m a 30 year old stay at home mom who could use a 1 or 2 day vacation!!!

  18. Eddie says:

    Hey John,

    I deserve these passes because I want to actually meet you in person. You’re one of the few people that have consistently provided me help on getting my blog started. I want to be inspired and be surrounded by a network of like-minded individuals, as well. You have to start somewhere and I really want to start the right way and be able to interact with successful blogger and one day be a part of this convention as well! It’s my dream to be a full-time successful blogger!


  19. PJ Rosenberg says:

    I would love to get the ticket so I can get to network face to face with all the people that I have been networking via blog and social platforms with for the last decade!

  20. Hi John, Yes by all means, I would like to have the ticket to meet the public in networking
    approaches. Thanks Again John.

  22. Lady M says:

    No Twitter No Facebook 🙁 Please do not forget the rest of us! 🙂

  26. BlogWorld Expo Los Angeles was a great journey may be to technology and affiliate world.

  27. Baker says:

    I am the most ideal person that would like to get this pass because the content on my blog that I create is for the greater good of humanity, and uplifts people in a positive way, something that we all need more of these days. Plus, I can blog about my experiences about the event if I get chosen !!

  28. Kristen says:

    I want to win this pass to BlogWorld because it will help me relaunch my career. I am a fulltime MBA student, going back to school to pursue marketing, specifically digital marketing. I am hoping that I can learn a lot from the experts at BlogWorld, and decide what path I want my post-MBA career to go. Thanks! –Kristen

  29. Good luck to all the entrants!

    Hello John

    I hope it is not to late.

  31. kia says:

    Hey John. While I am not anywhere near being a member of the “probably yo daddy” foundation I do love online communities and the interface with getting out to meet people in real life. I have only been to female-centered and health/wellness-centered social media conferences minus the general stuff here in the lovely Boulder/Denver bubble. I want to expand my wings a bit more and return to my hometown of Los Angeles for this one. Here is a little gift of yoga for the tech dorks out there http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvtXyWI6wCs

  32. Robert says:

    Hey John I think I deserve to go NOT ONLY because I ate all my vegetables today but also because I recently started a blog which I hope will benefit the internet entrepreneurs like us. It’s a blog dedicated to anyone in need of some life motivation and business tips. Check out it out yourself. http://yuppieconnection.com. I going to assume you’re gonna give me tickets so I’m on my way to LA right now. Peace.

  33. Robert says:

    Oh yeah. Since you’ll be in LA your probably gonna want a cheeseburger. I know the best burger places in town so you HAVE TO pick me!

  34. Mochamad says:

    Of course, I want to be the next people that will get the success like you, John. Thank so much.

  35. Always looking to learn and share information. I think I could learn a great deal at this event. Show me the pass…

  36. Andrew says:

    i dream to go there,but now i can’t afford it. i am in china now. it is difficult for me to there. hehe…

  37. Larry Waight says:

    Hey John,

    I believe I should win this ticket because I am one of the few people in Belize Central America who use blogging to educate travelers and the international community about Belize especially the natural attractions like the ancient Maya cities, ceremonial caves,pristine and virgin rainforest, diverse culture and the magnificent barrier reef (the second largest in the world). Do you know anything about Belize?
    I would also love to start a non profit organization to teach Belizean entrepreneurs how to blog and promote their business online thus contributing to the economic development of our small economy.

  38. Jeff Lowder says:

    Hey John!

      So is the Admin of this blog!

  39. John – I’d like to throw my hat in the running for one of the passes…. I’ve been slowly building up my online property empire with a few niche-y website/blogs and also two more authority sites. I’ve been going down the usual paths of monetization (your giveaway-then-sell-the-hell-out-of-clickbank model continues to shine) and it’s now time to expand the business model a bit and get face to face with vendors and speakers. There is only so much you can learn from websites and reading without actually getting to know people in person. Plus, since I am rarely in the Seattle/Vancouver area (so I miss out on all the Dot Com Phos) it’d be great to create a Dot Com Pho LA Edition… Though I might have to show you some of the best tacos in the city 🙂

  40. Leslie Tyler says:

    The chance to network one on one with like-minded people would be a tremendous opportunity. However, to actually meet John Chow would be a dream come true. When I first began to blog, John Chow was one of my first on-line mentors.

    Finally, get me away from this computer screen and back into the world of personal interaction!

  41. John,
    I’m ready to launch my businesses and I need to conserve $ whenever possible. Starting on a shoestring budget isn’t easy and the free 2 day pass will go a long way to getting things started. I’ll be able to use the money I save towards purchasing a great camera, audio recording device, an iPad, beer and wine for schmoozing, etc., all the essential blogger tools. 🙂
    Sincerely, Wayne

  42. Sue McDonald says:

    Hi John

    If I was in the US I would love to be there but I am in Australia. Maybe next year i Could come over for the summit.



  43. Ola kayode says:

    Hi John,

    It better be me,because am your new student in blogging world and event will even help me,

  44. raincoaster says:

    You should give ME the pass because:

    1) I may need to flee the country after #OccupyVancouver and
    2) It’ll make Raul REALLY jealous.

  45. Sydney Chase says:

    Dearest John,

    Let me first say that you are SUPER AWESOME for offering us the opportunity to win passes. I would like to win the 2 Day pass because I am VERY SERIOUS about building my business and acquiring the skills to take things to the next level. I have spent a considerable amount of time and energy building the businesses of others and now that I am seeking to expand my own I realize that I am definitely in need of the guidance and vast amount of knowledge that can be procured from Ultimate Experts in this area such as yourself. As you know, I WILL there if given the pass. I will fly across the country all the way from Virginia in order to take advantage of this rare but wonderful opportunity to be able to attend since I otherwise would not be able to financially. I will take the knowledge and everything else I acquire at the even to not only help myself but to help others as well who are serious about building their businesses.

  46. I got lots of mail from you, i just want to know how to join with you.

  47. N K SHEIGAR says:

    Dear John,

    I have been following you for a long time and would love to meet you and speak to you in person and also be a part of this incredible event, never attended any Internet Marketing event in the USA as I live in Singapore. I will be a perfect endorsement for anything you promote as I am a dedicated IMer trying to be successful in both blogging as well as other key aspects of Internet Marketing.


  48. Hello John,
    Well, I am a newbie, and just starting to learn about all
    this. but, I think it is simply amazing, that one can develop
    skills, talents and ability to do what you and others have
    and develop their own financial independence through
    dilligence, persisitence and learning how to do this!
    Plus 🙂 I am in L.A. area and it would be awesome to come!
    Thanks Spirit 精神-

  49. Its an great opportunity to take part in blog world
