Okay, I’m going to BlogWorld Expo in a few weeks, and if you’re going, I’d love to see you and connect (not for lunch or dinner – let’s just say hi and check in). BUT, and this is a big but, you should forget about meeting me. It’s easy to meet me. I get around a bit. I throw my own events all the time. You know who you need to meet, REALLY, is Glenda Watson Hyatt.
If you’re a business looking to understand the power of the online world — plus the sheer frustration — for bloggers and web citizens with accessibility concerns, and you don’t meet Glenda, you’ve done your company a disservice.
Finally, bring an extra $20 and buy a copy of her book, I’ll Do It Myself. I’ve read parts of it at least a dozen times. When I feel sad or lazy or down in the dumps, I read about Glenda’s personal strength, her conviction, and her family’s love and support, and I find myself giving my efforts an extra push. If you don’t leave Blog World Expo with your own copy (she even signed MINE), then why’d you come?
You can meet me any old time. Make SURE you meet Glenda at Blog World Expo.
