SOBCon09!! Thank YOU
On Monday @swoodruff asked, “Have you recovered from SOBCon09 yet?”
My answer was simple, “Who’d want to recover from that?” We all experienced the IRL-ROI — The In Real Life Return on Investment of Relationships. How do I describe a community a great minds working and shining side-by-side? I’m working on it. Until then, here’s what some folks have already said.

8 ways social media can learn from church
Let me suggest 8 lessons you may want to consider as you expand your social media efforts.
1. Great stories stick …
It may sound simple, over-simplified in fact, but it is actually not natural for humans these days. But one thing I can tell you for sure: I have been to a lot conferences (although only one other blogging one) and many networking events, and I have never had such an easy time speaking with and connecting to people.
What a Social Media Experience: 150 People In a Room Tweeting and Learning
I took a deep breath. I had come home. This was the kind of social media conference I had been looking for. This was going to be a blast.
What I Learned at SOBCon – Day 1
Zena Weist presents @jenchicago’s awesome video
Places to learn and meet
A thoughtful reflection on two meaningful connections and even more places to find content from the event.
Business Blogging Tips from SOBCon 09
It was a full 3 days, lots of talking, learning, photos, videos so getting interviews felt like a challenge for me.
Building Relationships Online? Meet Their Hierarchy of Needs
But, how do you build a relationships that only happen online? When Terry Starbucker spoke this past weekend at SOBCON, he listed the steps when approaching someone online in order to build a successful relationship.
CityChicOnAFarm goes to a Blogging Conference (SOBCon)
This CityChicOnAFarm was totally intimidated at first and thought â€œI soooo donâ€™t belong here,â€ but after it got started and I started meeting many of the other attendees I realized I definitely needed to be there.
How Can You Change What Youâ€™re Afraid of?
This weekend, I was blessed with the wisdom, expertise, time, and friendship of more people than I have space to acknowledge here. I cannot begin to put a value on the support I received or the help I was given. I deserve none of it. I am no more special than anyone else and yet I walk away having been given priceless gifts. I doubt I could ever thank people enough.
SOBCon Synthesis: The Rise of the Digiloggers
What SOBCon is creating, in my view, is a new breed of businessperson – the â€œDigiloggerâ€œ.
A Digilogger is someone, or a company, who can successfully synthesize what has and always will work on the â€œanalogâ€ side of the fence and blend it seamlessly with the digital tools we now have at our disposal.
Thank you everyone especially you, Terry, for the experience of a life, a heart, and mind.
