I don't think I have my own category yet, but I'm Tris Hussey and I will be covering the Blog Business Summit next week for the Tucows blog. So while Joey and crew will be at other conferences of cool-geekiness, I'll be in lovely Seattle covering all the sessions I can (there are some dual track sessions) and recording some podcasts as well with speakers and attendees. I myself am I speaker and will be talking about audience measurement and RSS metrics. I'm certainly going to make it interesting, in my usual style ... Joey has heard me speak so he can vouch for me.
Blog Business Summit was the first of its kind—a conference geared towards the business blogger. Those already doing it to those who want to get started. The speakers at next week's conference (the third BBS) are the cream of the crop. Some of the best minds on the blogosphere like Dave Taylor, Robert Scoble, Tara Hunt, Jason Calcanis and others. There is still time to register if you want to go ... and if you're interested in business blogging, you really should think about it. For the first time I'll be at the pre-conference workshops on blogging (covering those for your too) ... and those should be just awesome. Oh and I'll probably sneak in some pictures and posts from dinners and such. Why? Because that's where the really good discussions happen.
Your next question will be then, just who is this guy. I've been a blogger for over two years now (seems like forever) and my primary blog (sponsored by Blogware, btw) is A View from the Isle where I cover news about tech, the blogosphere, and other stuff that I feel like writing about. Now, being a blogger I couldn't just stop there. I write for several other blogs including:
- The Qumana blog (Qumana is my primary employer)
- Qumana Investor Blog
- Business Blog Consulting
- Blog Business Summit
- The Homely Scientist (one of my B5media blogs)
- PimpYourWork (a B5 blog I write with three other folks ... it's not officially launched, so it doesn't have a spiffy B5 template, but the content is still great)
- Daddy Wears Slippers to Work. The blog for the book I'm writing about telework.
I think that about does it. Yes, all those blogs do keep me rather busy.
