First day of the general BlogWorld sessions and as usual, I came away with renewed energy, a plethora of ideas and a dramatically decreased bank account! No, not on gambling – I hit the Barnes & Noble on-site kiosk.
God, I love books!
But the highlight of the day? I met my Blogfather! Meet Hugh Hewitt, talk show host extraordinaire! I think if you did a “paternity” test on every blog online today, 75% of them would be related, in some way, to Hugh’s influence.
Blog World CEO Rick Calvert was interviewed by Hugh, and he mentioned the medblogger track!
This banner blew me away! It was at the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation booth. The banner tells you where their donations go.
They actually recognize, and fund, nurse researchers!
Do you know how rare it is to find that anyone realizes that nurse researchers exist, let alone see it on a promotional banner?
I’m so impressed!
Until 8 pm on Saturday, October 17th, for every hashtag of #beatcancer that is used on any tweet, blog or website, donation is made to cancer research. The goal is to set a Guinness record. So please use #beatcancer whenever you tweet, blog or facebook!
A bit of unfinished business from last night: a photo of Doctor Anonymous “taking one for the team”. Seems there was one last King crab leg and someone had to eat it. It was a sacrifice, but he managed to do it.
The Singing Medbloggers video is now up over at Doctor Anonymous: Medbloggers at BlogWorld.
They swear that this is three-part-harmony not heard since the Bee Gees graced the stage, and I have the tweet to prove it.
Listen to the self-described harmonic convergence and judge for yourself.
I guess I was the only blogger on the face of the earth who did not know who Chad Vader was!
He is Darth Vader’s younger brother and works as a day shift manager in a grocery store. He’s actually quite the gentleman if you like the heavy breathing type.
Well, I picked up my share of swag and tomorrow I’ll pick up some more!
I’m all about the swag, baby, all about the swag…
