Blog World Expo 2010 – Early Bird Pricing Deadline on July 15th

Just a friendly reminder for anyone who is thinking about going to the Blog World Expo in Vegas on October 14 – 16th that early bird pricing ends on Thursday, July 15th. After next Thursday, pricing goes from $300 – $600 to $395 – $895.

A tentative schedule should be up by then, but the official topic selections won’t be made until the end of July. Here is last year’s schedule so you can get a feel for what they have to offer. And remember, it’s only partly about the education – the best part of the conference will be the networking! So get your tickets soon!

Famous Bloggers / ComLuv Contest Extended

If you haven’t entered, you still haven’t missed out. The deadline for accepting entries has been extended until Tuesday, July 13th. Learn more about why you should enter and what your odds are of winning!

Oh, Kristi – who needs Google reader to keep track of the best; I can just come here every Friday!

So far discovered some great, and most importantly, helpful and practical info on how to improve my blog.

Thanks and keep’em coming!

Amazing compilation Kristi! Thanks a lot for mentioning my post about free applications for bloggers.
I’ll have my weekend busy exploring all the links, specially the SEO part with the 50 free tools – I lost this one on the week.

The dude at the video is really wild 🙂

Have a great weekend!



Hey Kristi – Wow. Is this list longer than normal? It’s huge! I’m glad you create this list, because even though I have Google Reader, I don’t always go every day. Somehow I missed JP’s retweet post, so I have to go read that now. 🙂

Are you going to BlogWorld? The whole time or just some of the time?


It’s the same # wise, but I think my descriptions were longer. And yes, I’ll be attending Blog World, definitely Friday – Saturday, and maybe Thursday, but it’s undecided. Are you? 🙂

As usual, another great list of very useful articles. Thanks for sharing with your readers about The Challenge too, I think they might find it interesting. Have a great weekend

Kristi, I just realized you featured me today. I’m glad to be in such good company.

And I’m leaning toward going to Blog World Expo. I saw how many people inside Third Tribe Marketing are going and that’s tipping the scales.

I like how your descriptions are getting better and better. These kinds of lists are really tedious to assemble, and taking the time to get the anchor text right is even more tedious!

Thanks again!

Ohh Kristi,

There is not a single article mentioned in this list which is not worth the praise.. Even though it took me about 35 minutes to read all these articles, I am glad that you framed it into one single post here..

Really Appreciated!

Absolutely loved this collection of links, and am still going through it. Have visited the 5 Mistakes Hampering Blog Growth article, the Facebook Fan pages gallery from Smashing, the Beginner’s Guide to SEO, Darren Rowse’s question about what one gives back via blogging, and the 5 essential pages for a blog link. All of them were good and I’m commenting and promoting appropriately.

Thanks so much!

I hope everything is going great Kristi, I haven’t had a chance to read a Fetching Friday in a while. This is probably one of your personal bests for me, I now have 8 tabs open with posts I want to read now, thank you. You know how I get over the business posts 🙂

Great work Krists, and best of luck for the contest. i think you are leading at this point of time. I think the competition is pretty tough but the results are good.

Thanks for including my article. People really seemed to like it.
The Video spoof was awesome – lol 🙂

Another great one! The Personal Development section is an excellent compliment to the techie stuff. In fact, these days I am spending more and more time there and that is a very good thing.

Hey Kristi,

Great finds 🙂 I especially enjoyed reading the one from, I have actually seen that image from mark barrera’s blog, though it had a different approach (it focused more on how search engine ranks…). But with this one, really impressive (how professional SEOs get quality links), plain and simple, however, reading it will really challenge you to create compelling contents.

Thanks again for this, perhaps I should use stumbleupon more often.

I want to say: this is one of the best blog post that I read in the recent past, you have a large supply of articles very useful. I’m happy and impressed you create this list, this really is a classic video, love your sense of humor, I really enjoyed it. keep good job, you continue to share the new posts when I visit again.
