Top Ten Reasons I'm Going to SOBCon 09

Top Ten Reasons

1.  I'm a blogger.  

2.  To actually meet the speakers that I follow on twitter.  Chris Brogan, Brian Clark, Chris Cree, Chris Garrett, Glenda Watson Hyatt, Julian Smith, Terry Starbucker, Liz Strauss --- just to name a few.

3. To meet my some of my twitter friends like Becky McCray, Amber Naslund, Robert Hruzek, Jon Swanson -- just to name a few more.

4. To come home with some kick ass business blog planning for my local community.

5. To take my okay by me blog and turn it into a powerful business tool.

6. To meet the Chicago social media scene - I consider Chicago my second home.

7.  To see what the sponsors have to offer.  I'm already working with some of their sites - and excited to see what their futures are looking like.

8. To hang out with really cool people in the best city in the world!  

9. To exchange ideas, create possibilities and bring it all home.

10.  Because I just have to.
