Blog Business Summit

Blog Business Summit Jan. 24-25, 2005 in Seattle, WA

We’ll be attending the Blog Business Summit on January 24-25, 2005. The summit will be in Seattle, Washington. Which is good, because I need to replenish my cooking spices from The Souk.

We are looking forward to doing the usual meet & greets, learning what we don’t know about, validating what we do, and waxing philosophical on all manner of online communication.

Topics of interest include (bolded are of particular interest to me):

  • Legal Strategies, Tactics and Tools: Prevention and Protection
  • Why Blogs? Understanding the Advantages
  • The New Voice: Writing for Blogs
  • Marketing Strategies and Tactics: PR and Beyond
  • Best Practices: Techniques for Success
  • Building Traffic: Posting isn’t Enough
  • Essential Tools: Life-Changing Add-ons, Scripts, and Services
  • Dealing with Bloggers: Partnering and Defense Strategies
  • Enhancing Internal Communications with Blogs, Wikis, and More
  • Knowing the Numbers: Traffic, Click-through, Sales and ROI
  • The Entrepreneurial Blog: Monetizing Your Interests
  • Corporate Blogging: Strategy and Policy
  • Customer Communication: Using Blogs to Enhance Dialog
  • Blog Business Models: What Strategies Make Money
  • Driving Traffic: Linking Strategies, Search Engines and You
  • Picking a Platform: Blogging Engines Compared
  • Blogs and Branding
  • Content Strategies and Tactics: Maximizing Speed, Impact, and Reputation
  • Good Blog Design: Speed, Accessibility, Transparency, Clarity
  • Collaborative Blogging: Team Workflow and Tools

Look for us there. Mention this post and receive a look of, “Wha?”

Seriously, let us know if you plan to attend. Perhaps we can go for a long walk off a short pier together!


  1. Well, as we get closer to the event, and schedules are more set, perhaps we can set up a lunch or dinner event during or on either side of the summit.

    It’s a little too soon to say, but it would be fun!

  2. Hadn’t heard about the summit until reading here. Sounds great, but holy smokes, that’s a lot of scratch when it’s coming out of one’s own pocket! Wonder if there’s any scholarship money… :-)

  3. Brendon,

    There isn’t scholarships specifically, but there is a “Special Blogger Rate Discount Pricing.” See the register page for more details.

    Also, the reception should be kicking. I hope to see you all there.

  4. I will be attending the summit with Jesper Bindslev. Maybe we will get some time to talk to you face to face. We are located in Denmark (Europe), and we are looking forward to going to Seattle. Above all we are interested in collaboration on the net and business bloggs as communicational tools.
    So Long

  5. Jon,

    We look forward to seeing you there. Mike and I will be there. I plan on getting into town on the 22nd.

    Let me know if you want to trade phone numbers (and that goes for everyone attending). Might be easier than wearing that old t-shirt I have that says, “Hi, I’m Matthew!”

  6. Hi Matthew,
    Jesper and I will arrive at the 22nd as well, and we would like to trade phone-numbers (we’ll write you an email). You’re right it’s easier than the t-shirt thing. Everyone laughs at me when I wear mine, saying I mispelled Frodo…
