I don't need to say it although I will - my blog has been less than impressive lately in terms of posts and content. I just started a new job my company about 6 weeks ago and it was around that time that my creativity hit a wall and my blog took a vacation. I'm blogging today from Las Vegas - I'm at the Blogworld New Media Expo and boy have things changed since I attended this event in 2008. Blogging is no longer for geeks - its mainstream. Lots of different age groups are represented here at the conference and its so lovely to see a travel blogger track this year (which is where I have been spending a lot of my time so far).
I'm hoping the conference will give me a kick in the butt and help me get back to the blogging game. And with a trip to Hawaii less than one month away, now is a perfect time to kick into high gear!
One of the things I learned at the conference today (although its really a no-brainer) is use your own photos on your blog - its much more compelling for travel writing than taking other people's content off the Internet. You'll notice I don't have a photo on this post - because I need to get down to the strip and capture all that is Vegas on my own! Hopefully I'll be able to share some with you early next week (yes I forgot the cord for my digital camera).
