Like many of you, I didn’t attend Blog World Expo this year. Instead I blogged live from the TEDxRaleigh conference on Friday morning and left on Friday afternoon to go camping at Ocean Isle Beach. In putting this post together I dipped into the most recent portions of the #bwe10 hashtag archive and selected the posts that either described sessions or gave personal take-aways. If I encountered a pop-up window upon arriving at a blog, I shut it down – your obnoxious attempts to tease me with some lame offer result in no visit from me.

Maggie McGary wrote in her recap of BlogWorld that “being there was like swimming in a sea of Kool-Aid and everyone was drinking it. Maybe in the for-profit world experiences like that are par for the course, but in the association world, they are so rare as to be basically non-existent.” She also gave link love to these posts by other bloggers:

David Griner also wrote two other posts about sessions he attended:
