I just had the most amazing few days. I spent some time in the beautiful city of Austin, TX at the South by Southwest Interactive festival. To say the experience was a positive one is an understatement. I, along with BlogTalkRadio’s John Havens and Chris Hogan, spent time talking with some of the greatest folks on earth.
I wish to personally thank all of our hosts and listeners who stopped by the BlogTalkRadio pod at the Pepsico Podcasting Playground to tell us how much they enjoy what we do. Your support means so much to us. Meeting you face to face means even more.
I would also like to take this time to say “welcome aboard” to our new hosts, especially those of you who signed up after talking with us at SXSW.
A special shoutout to the folks at PepsiCo who provided us a unique place to interact with the community and broadcast live, and also to WalMart’s 11Moms. You may know some of the 11Moms as BlogTalkRadio hosts. In person they are smart, savvy and delightful, and I enjoyed all the time I spent with them. I look forward to seeing you all again! Another shout out to Chris Brogan for becoming a part of the BlogTalkRadio team for the weekend. It’s always a pleasure chatting with you.
I met community management folks from brands such as Best Buy Remix and we’re already brainstorming ways to bring our communities together. I was also able to pick the brains of the best minds in social media. I learned so much, I’m ready to burst.
Thank you South by Southwest, thank you Austin, thank you to the BlogTalkRadio community and a very special thank you to BlogTalkRadio for allowing me to attend this extraordinary event.
