Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to TBEX we go

TBEX '10

Tomorrow morning, Mark and I will be hopping the Chinatown bus for the Big Apple. We're spending the weekend there to attend The Travel Blog Exchange (TBEX '10). We'll actually, I'm attending the conference during the day, and Mark will be catching up with friends and hopefully not getting into too much trouble. We'll regroup at night to compare notes. We haven't been to NYC since hitting the Fancy Foods show in 2008, which I didn't even write about because Mark's car died on the way up and the whole weekend was fairly traumatic. Let's hope the bus proves to be a better transportation option!

TBEX will have lots of interesting sessions about how to improve your writing and monetize your blog and work with PR folk. Not to mention lots of free schwag from a dizzying array of sponsors. But the real reason I'm going is to finally meet, face to face, so many of the travel soopastars whose blogs/podcasts/Twitter streams I've been following for years. What will they be like in person? And what will they think of me? I think Sherry of Ottsworld said it best: "What if the physical me isn’t as interesting and likeable as the virtual me? ...What if they expect me to be funny... smarter... younger... taller?" It's a relief to know I'm not the only one who feels this way. But I'm bringing my platform flip-flops just in case.

There are so many people I'm looking forward to meeting that I can't even begin to list them here. I'm also psyched to meet up with some of my fellow Meet Plan Go hosts, to continue the fantastic online brainstorming and amp up the excitement for our September event. It's gonna be like a reunion, except for the most part we've never even met the first time. Stay tuned for updates on what promises to be a redonkulously good time, no matter your elevation.
