A few months ago, I got to participate in Blogs With Balls, a first-of-its-kind conference bringing together the best in sports-blogging and online sports media for a one-day spectacle of panels, networking and general merriment. It was a huge success...
So much so that they are having its second edition -- BwB 2.0 -- in Las Vegas, next month. I will be there, along with tons of other folks. It should be a terrific two days (it is part of the larger Blog World Expo).
I am moderating a panel about the dynamic between traditional ("mainstream") and alternative ("blog") sports media, which in NYC earlier this year was... heated, to say the least.
If you are interested in attending, I'll point you to this discount code, which BwB has put together in conjunction with ESPN: $100 for your event tickets, special parties and more. Check it out here.
I will be periodically updating you on the event -- yes, promoting it, and of course I will offer lots of coverage FROM the event.
Let me tease my coverage with this: It will be my first time in Las Vegas.*
(Now, back to my search for a great hotel, good restaurants and a list of things to put on my itinerary of fun. And I can't just pile in with a bunch of bloggers in some Hangover-style bachelor suite; Mrs. Quickie will be coming with me.)
* -- You read that correctly.
