Since you may have voting on your mind ...


Hey Everyone!

All this talk about voting in the news reminded me that we just have a few more days to garner support for the panel idea at SXSW that I talked about a couple of weeks ago

Summary of panel:  Me, Hugh McLeod, Kathy Sierra and Ariel Waldman talking about how to turn a blog into a book deal.  You can vote for us here -- kindly select 5 stars, and leave a comment if you wish!

Since my first post, I was graciously invited to participate in another panel by my buddy Jonathan Fields.  His topic is Leverage your blog to create other income opportunities.  I will talk about landing coaching clients through your blog, and will be joined by other great panelists: Jonathan,  Naomi Dunford from Ittybiz (landing marketing clients), Tamar Weinberg from Techipedia, Lifehacker and Mashable (landing social media clients), Anita Campbell from Small Business Trends (speaking gigs) and Brian Clark from Copyblogger (paid blogging).  Vote for this panel here.

Voting for SXSW panels ends this Friday, August 29.

And if you are not tired of voting yet, give a thumbs up to my friend Colleen Wainwright (aka Communicatrix), who is trying to convince Southwest Airlines that she would be the perfect Blog-o-spondent.  Trust me, she would be!  She created a short video where you can see people like me, Mignon Fogerty (Grammar Girl) and Peter Shankman of HARO expressing our enthusiasm.  Vote for Colleen here.

Thank you so much for all your support!

I am up to my ears in book writing, feeling quite overwhelmed at the moment.  Why am I doing this again? 

For you of course.

You may not know it, but you all really inspire me to keep going.  So thanks.
