Citizen Blogging Summit: On The Panel

bloggersummit.jpgOn Friday, June 15th, I'll be appearing at the Citizen Blogging Summit sponsored by Newsradio 620 WTMJ with my good friend and fellow blogger Pete Prodoehl and blogger Jason Kotecki, who I don't know yet, but love his cartoons.

The three of us are on a panel from 2:25-3:10 called "Beyond Politics, Beyond Milwaukee" which means we get to talk about everything else related to blogging. I think we're the breather session, meant to cleanse the palette after talk show host Charlie Sykes and the political bloggers argue political theories.

I love how Pete expressed this on his post about the Summit:

I’m really not sure what to expect. Mike Rohde and I are on the 2:25-3:10 Panel, Beyond Politics, Beyond Milwaukee. I’m guessing we are the ‘tech bloggers’ or maybe the token ‘non-political’ bloggers. Anyway, I’ll just prepare for this the same way I prepare for BarCamp or Web414 presentations, wait until the last minute, attempt to do nothing, then embrace the chaos.

Classic Pete. I'm with ya Pete! :-)

I plan to discuss blogging as a method for "thought leadership" which is to say, sharing your work, process, personality and thinking, as a way to build credibility and to augment your business. That's what I find most valuable about this blog.

We're not sure if this will be on the radio, or recorded as a podcast. If I find out more before Friday, I'll post it here, and will add a link to the podcast, if there is one.

Special thanks go to Phil Gerbyshak, who told organizer Sean Hackbarth, about Pete and I as candidates for the event. I owe you one buddy! :-)

That's exactly the stuff I'm looking for. Weblogging is more than punditry and ranting and raving. It can be productive in more personal areas.

It turned out well Sean! Can't wait to post a link to the podcast.
