I’d Love to Meet You in Las Vegas

150pxLater this month I’m speaking at BlogWorld Expo. I’m looking forward to seeing lots of new media friends and making new ones.

There are lots learning opportunities at an event like this, but more important are the networking opportunities. I’ll be putting together a breakfast meetup and would love to see you there.

I speak on Friday at 12:45pm in room 232. The topic is How to Build a Large and Loyal Audience with Podcasting. You can still get tickets here. Shoot me an email and let me know if you’ll be there (jason AT jasonvanorden DOT com).
