SOBCon08 is “Biz School for Blogging.” This year’s event tracks entrepreneur bloggers and corporate bloggers alike, with an innovative format and a stellar cast of speaker/instructors. It is the brainchild of Liz Strauss, a fabulous blogger who I have mentioned often in previous posts. I was thrilled when she named me an SOB (Successful and Outstanding Blogger) back in October 2007.
She and a great group of supporters and presenters are hosting SOBCon2008 in downtown Chicago on May 2-4, 2008.
Sadly, I can’t make it this year but plan to be there next year if at all possible! I had the pleasure of meeting Liz at SXSW earlier this month and several of the bloggers who will be participating in the conference. If you are a business blogger, you should definitely check it out and sign up for this conference if you can!

Liz Strauss did a post asking us how we thank our blog friends and it got me thinking as Liz’s posts often do. As 2007 comes to a close, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank and recognize all the amazing connections with amazing people I’ve made as a result of starting this blog this year. Your posts and comments have made me laugh, shed tears, smile, raise my eyebrows, share, grow as a person, and most importantly LEARN. Thank you! In no particular order (except for the first one), they are:
Connie Reece of Every Dot Connects – She is the one who got me started with blogging!
Wendy Piersall of eMoms at Home. She gave me the honor of guest posting on her blog with a post called Entrepreneurship: A Blessing or a Curse?
Liz Strauss of Successful Blog – she called me an SOB (Successful and Oustanding Blogger)
Naomi Dunford of IttyBiz – check out her mini case study on Babble Soft
Pearl at Interesting Observations
Neena of A Mom’s Life at Neenmachine – check out her guest baby tip on keeping a baby food journal
Carole Hayes of Alias Tex – check out her guest baby tip post on increasing your milk supply
Bryan Mennell of Austin Startup – check out my guest post called Parenting a Startup and Kids.
Carleen Hawn of Found|Read – check out her post about one of my posts called Sometimes, You Gotta Ignore the Experts
Nataly Kagan of Work It, Mom – she mentioned me in one of her posts on her personal blog Learning Optimism that she later posted on Huffington Post.
Thom Singer of Some Assembly Required – He recently did a post on passion and mentioned me.
Lee Aase from Lines from Lee – he helped me with setting up the Babble Soft facebook page.
Robb at the Robblog – long time friend. I think I forced him into blogging or something like that.
Clay Nichols of DadLabs – fellow Austin entrepreneur in the parenting area. If you haven’t seen it (and aren’t easily offended) check out their Manly Breastfeeding Video.
Eric Doggett of DogBlog – a fellow Austin entreprenuer/photographer
Shane & Peter of Shane & Peter – because of Shane’s post requesting us to interview ourselves I wrote a post called An Entrepreneurial Self Portrait.
Maryam Scoble of Maryamie – don’t be surprised if you see me on the Scobleshow in 2008!
Char at Casual Keystrokes
Randa Clay of Randa Clay Design
Jennifer Laycock of The Lactivist- nursing out loud
Karen Rani and Vicki Maxel of Swank Webstyle – they did my entrepreMusings blog design and implementation as well as our current corporate site.
We have exchanged meaningful (at least to me!) emails/blog comments, spoken on the phone, or met in person this past year. They have helped me in my journey and I hope that I’ve been able to help them too! I apologize if I’ve forgotten someone as I’m typing this up before we head out for the holidays. If I have, let me know and I’ll add you to the list.
Thank you all for enriching my life in 2007!
