What Would You Ask a Blogger?

What Would You Ask a Blogger?

blogI am *so* not a Las Vegas person. All the lights, people, gambling and drinking really aren’t my thing. Why then would I be packing to spend a few days in to Vegas?

If you’re thinking there must be a pretty compelling reason, you’re right. I’m excited to be attending BlogWorld in Las Vegas this year, along with thousands of other bloggers. Bloggers with a huge following, bloggers just getting started. Mommy bloggers, military bloggers, real estate bloggers. Lots of social media bloggers. Here a blogger, there a blogger…

My goals are to learn from others’ blogging experiences and to network with people I know “virtually” but have never met in person. My other goal is to be your representative at the conference. I’ll be taking my video camera with me and hope to interview some of the bloggers I meet. I plan to post the interviews online to share them with you.

What would you like me to ask them? Do you have questions about which blogging platform is best for beginners? Wondering why someone would decide to blog in the first place? Best ways to drive traffic to your blog? Favorite plug-ins for managing comments?

Please add your questions in the comments area below. BlogWorld has a jam-packed schedule of conference sessions, networking, and socializing, but I will do my best to get you some feedback and advice in response to your questions.

Vegas, here I come.

    What’s your advice on having, or not having, ads on your blog? My blog has grown and has quite a following, but I don’t make money from it. Several people have told me that I should “monetize” it by placing Google ads on it – but others say that that would just ruin my credibility and would reflect badly on my interior design business. Yet I do need to earn some money! (BTW, I would have to move my many, many posts from the free spot on WordPress to even be able to host ads, and I suspect that that would be a major pain in the patootie.)

      Great question, Nicolette! This comes up a lot. I will ask others what they think. By the way, moving from wordpress.com to wordpress.org is a piece of cake, though setting up the rest of your blog on .org falls within the “pain in the patootie” range of endeavors.

    Vegas so not my thing either. Too much booze, cigarettes, and craziness. All in all though, I had a great time 🙂

    Will I be back next year? You bet!

      Glad to hear you felt the time at BlogWorld was worthwhile. I, too, would be happy to do without all the smoke, but found the time to be very productive. By the way, you’ve got some great content on your blog. It looks great!
