Top Ten Quotes From BlogWorld 2008…thus far!

September 21, 2008

Prof. Development

I’ve still got one more day here at BlogWorld, so I reserve the right to add/delete/modify this list to fit in more stuff tomorrow – keep the quotes coming! (thx to SukiFuller!)

I’ve heard some incredibly insightful/funny/wise/profound/outrageous things here at BlogWorld 2008.  Here are the top ten things that I’ve overheard and/or saw in the Conference Twitter feed.

  1. “Be You and Be Every Flaw.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
  2. “Here’s my best practice on SEO (search engine optimization) – just write good shit.”  – Guy Kawasaki
  3. “In order to make Twitter/social media work, your employees need to know HOW YOUR BIZ WORKS.” –Toby Bloomberg
  4. “I spend my life searching for negative things people say about me, and then I go and address it.” – Gary Vaynerchuk
  5. Trying to take stuff off the internet is like trying to take pee out of the pool” – unknown
  6. “I want a relationship not a one-link stand” – Liz Strauss
  7. “It’s not about pitching blogs with traffic, it’s about building relationships with blogs with influence.” – Steve Radick (me!)
  8. “Best way to get links is to have an opinion and piss someone off. Then turn off the comments.” – Michael Gray
  9. “There is a human being behind every Tweet, blog, and email – remember that.” – Chris Brogan
  10. How do you place a value on all the positive changes, and the positive blog posts, and the publicity created?” (in reference to measuring the ROI of social media) – @comcastcares

There are many more and I’m sure that there are others who have already come up with similar blog posts.  Jonathan Gunson already did one just on Gary Vaynerchuk’s quotes from his keynote.  If you have quotes that you liked, or want to respond to some of the ones I’ve collected above, leave a comment below.  Hoping to hear even more nuggets tomorrow….

  • Actually, yours is one of the best. And #2. That’s my motto. I am an accountant/consultant. I thought SEO meant Simply Elegant Outfit when I started blogging. One of the worst Twitters I saw during BWE08 was, “Ok, speaker says I have to be a thought leader. How do I become a thought leader?”

    Write well about something, touch a nerve, write well again, and then repeat. People will read what you write, they will find you, Google will find you, other blogs will find you, even the “rock stars” will find you. Kind of like Field of Dreams.
