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 “I soooo don’t belong here,” 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 You’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 “Digilogger“.
A Digilogger is someone, or a company, who can successfully synthesize what has and always will work on the “analog” 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.
