Who's Going To Inman In San Francisco?

By

Inman ConnectCalling all Active Rain Bloggers...

Are you signed up for Inman Connect in San Francisco? If not, get on the stick and get registered.

This is a great event where you can learn how to take your business to the next level, connect with other bloggers and share a great experience by meeting other Active Rain members face-to-face.

Last year's Inman Conference was a fantastic experience which is why I am thoroughly endorsing it to you, this year. Great speakers are lined up to share the next level of blogging, vendors will be present to show what you might want to bring into your business model and loads of camaraderie with fellow bloggers who share what works for them.

Did I mention the FUN? How can you possibly be in San Francisco, be with countless numbers of bloggers and not have fun? That's a given. Best be prepared for an early rise and a late rest. It's a boot camp of cramming a ton of information into a short period of time with fun sandwiched in-between.

Bloggers come from all over the map, some new to blogging and some old timers. It's always special to see familiar faces (if you can recognize them by the photo they use) here from Active Rain. That has gotten to be quite a joke with all of us.

The Inman Connect will begin Wednesday, July 23, 2008 and end Friday, July 25, 2008 in San Francisco.

So, if haven't signed-up there is still time to jump in and not miss a great event and an opportunity to meet your fellow bloggers. I know, I'd love to meet you and can't wait to see some familiar faces, again.

I have attempted to remember those who attended the Inman Conference last year in San Francisco and if I have inadvertently left you off, I do humbly apologize and please feel free to let me know, I'll be sure and add you to the list. Just consider it a moment of CRS on my part.

And did I forget to mention that the "Rain gods" last year won MOST INNOVATIVE MEDIA SITE?

Love to know if you are planning on attending this year so that we can all get together.

As I told you, Gena, I'm remodeling my kitchen that week. Well, it will take two weeks -- but only because I'm so friggin' organized. LOL. If Inman had picked any other time, I would have been happy to contribute to the sessions.

Happy blogging to everybody who goes, though! Getting together with experts who can share experiences and information is crucial to your success. And how lucky are we, Gena, that Inman's get-together is a 90-minute ride on the train? Yeah, way to go you Sacramento real estate bloggers. Don't drive. Take the train! Get off in Richmond and hop on BART.

Brian, "know something that you don't"...hmmm maybe then again maybe not.  Hope you try and make it to SF. My understanding is that is the DADDY of the two conferences.

Niman, a whole team, wow that sounds like FUN. I'll be sure to check it out.  See you in the little City by the Bay.

Elizabeth, your kitchen will be gorgeous I'm sure. Sorry you won't be able to make it again this year. Don't much want to leave the jag at the train station and I will enjoy the drive to my old stomping ground, Walnut Creek. After a short fun time with friends in WC, I will be a little "green" by taking BART the rest of the way into SF. Too bad you aren't' going and we could have traveled together. Maybe next year.

Maybe, the next time we meet for drink, we should invite Kevin...he wants to meet you.

Kevin, the ONLY person you haven't met...you get around Kevin.

I haven't made my reservations yet, but I'm planning on going.  Was in NY in January.  As a botique real estate firm its one of the ways that I get to network with other tech based owner and agents.

All the Best,

Christy, does this mean you won't be coming? Hopefully, you jest! We'd love to meet you in person and oh what fun there is to be had. Had to cancel my trip to Italy so this is a working vacation for me and I'd love to share it with you. Do reconsider.

Call "Help Me Ronda" for your Real Estate Needs!

We were offered as AR bloggers a discount that expired on the 20th...I wonder if we can form a group of AR bloggers who have not yet signed up so we can grab a group discount????

Gary, I'll be looking for you.

Ronda, I bet you can. Go for it...nothing ventured, nothing gained. Give Inman a call on Monday and see what you can work out. Being a blogger automatically gets you a discount so see what else you can negotiate. Put those negotiating skills to work, girl.

Be sure to tell them that you will put their logo on your blog site so that you can get a discount.

Hope to see you there.

Hi Gena

I'm new to Active Rain and professionally blogging and won't be attending the conference this year but would love to meet up with other Active Rainers.

I can be contacted at herculesnotary@gmail.com.

I'm also a San Francisco native if anyone has questions about things to do, places to avoid, etc.

Joanna, if you aren't planning on attending the conference but you live in the area then you should pop on over to The Palace at night (after 5 pm) and chat with a few of us. I'm sure that we would all give you a hearty welcome.
