REBlogWorld is now “History”, “In the Can”, Over, but not done. The sessions provided access to all kinds of knowledge sources. I learned more about shooting video from an iPhone, which I’ll never own, but I know how to shot and edit video on one 🙂
The Real Estate Blog isn’t dead but it is being remade. The “experts” often prove they are only experts in their own minds. I’m not talking about the panelists, I’m talking about all the Real Estate Blog Experts that have never written a post on a real estate blog in their lives, yet persist in telling everyone else “How to Do it”.
I gleaned some valuable information on WordPress Custom Post Types and Taxonomies in the WP 3 session. It was nice to see and be with bloggers and geeks in the same venue.
One of the things I really like about blogworld is the exposure to bloggers and media content people outside of Real Estate. The Travel blog track on Friday was really interesting. There was a Sport blog track on Saturday, which was my road trip home to Tucson day. But since I don’t watch or follow any sports . . .
The BlogWorld Venue
The venue at the Mandalay Bay Conference center was better than the Convention Center of years past. The readily available Starbucks (even at $3.20 for a Vente) was nice. Food of many types in walking distance all inside. I didn’t go outside for 3 days. I think they like it like that. I went from the Luxor to the Excalibur, and through the Mandalay Place shopping center to the Mandalay Bay Resort all inside.
First day Keynote
The conference session rooms were great. Many of them available with lots of track sessions going on all day every day. UnMarketing started off the first day keynote with some of the best and most unconventional advice I’ve ever heard at a conference on blogging.
A time to Connect and ReConnect
I saw a lot of friends from past Blogworld conferences and met some new ones. The first thing back the question is usually “Was it worth it?” Yes, it was worth it.
