I am the CEO & Co-founder of BlogWorld & New Media Expo
and it happened completely by
accident. I have been a news and politics junkie since grade school.
2000 elections and September 11, 2001 led me to the blogosphere. I was hooked
immediately and finally started my own blog in 2005. A year later I started
searching for the "Blogging Industry Tradeshow".
Stunned that it didn't
exist and having attended, exhibited and organized some of the largest events in
the world I knew I could put it together but thought I might be the only blogger
geeky enough to want to go to such a thing.
Turns out lots of other
bloggers, podcasters, internet radio and TV broadcasters were looking for the
same thing. If you have read this bio this far you are probably one of them 8).
The blogosphere and social media has changed my life forever. It has
been and continues to be an amazing journey. I can't wait to see what the future
will bring. Come join us.
