I attended blogworld in Las Vegas this month. I did not have to travel far since I live in Las Vegas. I just had to hop on the freeway and drive to the Las Vegas Convention Center. Not an easy thing to do sometimes with all the construction going on throughout Sin City.
I spent one day taking in as much information as I possibly could. Social media is growing at a fast rate. Two years ago I attended the very first blogworld and the emphasis was on blogging and all the neat tools that were available at the time. There was no mention of Facebook or Twitter. This year was different. Social media is essential for anyone with a business, especially if you have a business in which you are trying to reach as many people as possible.
It was amazing to see so many people using laptops WHILE a speaker was on stage. Not everyone had a laptop and like myself, was gripping a smartphone and trying to keep up with a Twit or two.
