SOBCon 07 Announced

By Char

SOBCon 07What would you call a conference made up of 250 passionate bloggers, 12 even more passionate speakers, and a super cool musician who blogs, too? Sounds like an SOB Conference to me!

Dubbed A Relationship Bloggers’ Conference and Networking Event, the May 11-12 conference will take place in Chicago and will feature the following speakers:

Why You Should Attend!

  • LEARN how to write compelling posts that draw readers in
  • SEE how great blog design can make a difference
  • DISCOVER how analytics and other tools can help you maximize your blog’s potential
  • HEAR innovative and useful blog marketing techniques that will expand your reach and viewership
  • GAIN valuable insights on ways to use blogging as a coaching tool
  • CONNECT with other bloggers through our pre-launch activities and interactive presentations

And I’ll add another reason to get to Chicago on May 11 & 12 – meet some of your favorite blogging friends in one place!



Sounds like a great conference! Could they have picked a worse acronym though? ;)


Ah, but Courtney, if you know this group of bloggers (specifically Liz), you know that this is the most appropriate acronym. Go check out her stuff – you’ll soon understand.

Thanks for stopping in!!


Thanks for spreading the word, Char! I have my fingers double-crossed that I’ll finally meet you there! :)


Wendy – my pleasure. I would so LOVE to go – we’ll have to see if I can get the planets to align.


I bet Courtney is an SOB herself but just hasn’t been officially recognized yet! ;)


Chris – I think you are right.


Nudging Jupiter as we speak…



Wendy – it might take more than a nudge – how about a big old kick in the back side of Saturn.


Char – thanks for spreading the news. I expect the planets will align and the Universe will send you to Chicago to hang out with all of us relationship geeks. It’s gonna be GREAT!


Sounds great Phil! Let keep our fingers crossed.

Are you going to this?


Angela – I would love to, but I need to work on the logistics of it all. We’ll see.
