Conference announcement

For your information, there is going to be a conference on blogging organised by Payperpost, the leading customer generated advertising company in the World. The conference will run for 2 days (1st and 2nd June) in Orlando, Florida.

The theme of this year's Posticon 07 is "You're A Rock Star". According to the organisers, Bloggers and Internet personalities are the Rock Stars of the information age. The very nature of the internet allows Bloggers to reach out to millions of readers Worldwide and even a simple teenager blogging from a obscure place can become a "rock star" tomorrow.

The aim of the conference is to "educate bloggers on how to build traffic and readership, and use your notoriety and unique brand to create value and monetize your voice". In other words, help us become better bloggers.

It would be the perfect opportunity to interact with the blogging Rockstars - the internet personalities who have already made a name for themselves. And they have a very impressive lineup of "rockstars", including Robert Scoble who is the keynote speaker. This American blogger who blogs at Scobleizer.com, is listed as number 9 on Forbes Top 25 Web Celebrities. Along with Shel Israel, he is the co-author of the book "Naked Conversations: How Blogs are Changing the Way Businesses Talk with Customers".

Other speakers include David Ponce (OhGizmo.com), Michelle Madhok (SheFinds.com) and Sherry Heyl (What a Concept) among others.

Of course, you also get to meet up with the other Posticon Attendees - sharing ideas and experiences as well as develop networks.

Are you going to be there?
