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.
