SOBCon Roll Call – courtesy of Liz Strauss

Liz, at Successful Blog, compiled a list of SOBCon08 attendees. I’ve recreated it here for the link love.

Can’t wait to see you all in Chicago!

I’m bringing my camera, my phone and the Flip, so be ready.

I’m an SOB and proud of it!

I'm an SOB

Yes, you heard me, I’m an SOB. Wanna make something of it?

That might be misleading you a bit.  The truth is that Liz Strauss over at Successful Blog selected me.  Specifically she selected this piece by me.

I appreciate that most because she’s taken time out to be supportive, and inspiring to me and hundreds of others.

So, yeah, for all of those that always knew, I’m officially an SOB.

Shashi B. Does SxSW – Pictures

Shashi, a social media guru from up in D.C. is down in SxSWi this weekend.  And from his pictures, he’s having a blast!

I hear he’s rubbing elbows with another friend, Liz Strauss, of SOBCon and Successful Blog.

If you are hanging out down there and have a minute, how about visiting his photo set and tagging them.

Mousewords is an SOB

That’s right, my friend Mousewords is an SOB. No, not that kind, but a Successful and Outstanding Blogger!

This honor was bestowed by Liz Strauss of Successful Blog upon Mousewords and a few others recently.

From Liz,

Successful and Outstanding Bloggers — They take the conversation to their readers, contribute great ideas, challenge us, make us better, and make our businesses stronger.

I thank all of our SOBs for thinking what we say is worth passing on. Good conversation shared can only improve the blogging community.

Congratulations Mousewords! You deserve the recognition.

10 Reasons You Need to Go to SOBCon08

Char over at Essential Keystrokes has written a good piece on why you need to go to SOBCon08.  Some of these are my reasons for going as well.  You can check out the full blog post here.  But below are a couple of my favorites.

10. Chances are your friends, family and co-workers don’t “get” blogging.

Ain’t that the truth.  My folks really don’t understand any of the geeky stuff I do, let along anything to do with online stuff. My mother thinks it’s all about porn and my dad thinks it’s just a big waste fo time.

6. Share ideas and forge relationships.

Amen to that!  I’m very excited about meeting some of my favorite bloggers in person as well as meeting new people.  The blogosphere often seems very spread out, but meetings like this help to shrink that universe.  Meeting Liz Strauss, another one on the 10 reasons list, is an exciting opportunity as well as the possibility to chat in person with Chris Brogan and others.  Who knows? I might find more than one blogger with similar interests as mine, and form a partnership.  Heck, and new friends are always welcome.

So what’s your excuse for not going? Check out SOBCon08 and see just what it could do for you!
