I spent three days at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas this week. I attended 10 to 12 different sessions some more interesting than others. I took a lot of notes and will be looking into some things when I return home on Thursday. Most of the things I learned will not affect the parts of the site that you see if I implement them. There were a couple of things that might change the way things look or act but not drastically.
The expo is where I met up and had breakfast with Christian who runs TastefullyOffensive.com and 4 other sites with some variation of the same moniker. Christian referred to me as a “pioneer” in the industry since I’ve been blogging for going on eleven years. I liken him to a Maverick with the go-get-em drive that will propel him forward. Christian has a marketing background and is serious about growing his sites into more than they are now. He started his dynasty about two and a half years ago and has some very impressive numbers and continues to improve his presence in the industry. He quit his marketing job and now blogs full time.
He and I seem to have a lot in common yet there are some differences in our methods and madness, none of which are bad.
We chatted for about an hour and a half that went by quickly.
