Deb Ng Goes Beyond Blogging at SXSWi


Yesterday we told you about BlogTalkRadio’s partnership with PepsiCo, but in case you missed it: BlogTalkRadio will be broadcasting live from the Pepsi Podcasting Playground at SXSWi. Please see yesterday’s post for all the details.

We have more SXSWi news, however. BlogTalkRadio’s own Deborah Ng (that’s me, folks) will be leading a Core Conversation at SXSWi on Sunday afternoon. It’s not a full fledged panel, rather, it’s a discussion about the skills one learns as a blogger and how one can use those skills for realistic and lucrative career choices.

The Core Conversation, entitled “Beyond Blogging: Using Your Blogging Skills for Bigger and Better Things” will take place Sunday, March 15th at 5:00 p.m. at the Austin Convention Center. I hope you’ll stop by and say hello. If you’ll be at SXSWi and I don’t see you at the Conversation, please stop by and look for John Havens and I at the BlogTalkRadio booth at the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground.

Join BlogTalkRadio at SXSWi – At the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground!


This week begins one of the biggest interactive conferences of the year, South by Southwest.

South by Southwest or SXSW, is actually three different conferences – film, music and interactive. BlogTalkRadio is pleased to announce we’re attending the interactive event. In fact, BlogTalkRadio has partnered with PepsiCo to broadcast live from Pepsi’s Podcasting Playground in the Austin Convention Center.

BlogTalkRadio will be interviewing both interactive industry leaders and up and coming new media stars throughout the entire weekend. Not only will the interviews highlight PepsiCo’s focus on enabling social influences, but it will also bring to light new ideas coming from SXSWi.

What is the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground?

The PepsiCo Podcasting Playground is a special area in the Austin Convention CenterĀ  featuring four “pods” to allow podcasters a quiet, relaxed spot to host podcasts. BlogTalkRadio will be broadcasting live from the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground, and all interviews will also be live on our homepage.

When does is all go down?

The PepsiCo Podcasting Playground, and BlogTalkRadio’s live broadcasts, will take place before, during and after SXSWi. The Podcasting Playground will be open from Friday, March 13 through Tuesday, March 17th, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily.

BlogTalkRadio will be podcasting beginning Friday evening, March 13th.

Stop by and Say “Hi”

If you’re attending SXSWi, I do hope you’ll stop by the BlogTalkRadio booth at the PepsiCo Podcasting Playground. It’s a great place to host your own BlogTalkRadio show, plus John Havens and I will be there to talk about BlogTalkRadio and meet the members of our community. We’re looking forward to this event and can’t wait to talk to you!
