OK. This is too cool!
Have you gotten info about a conference but you couldn’t go? Maybe cost was an issue or your schedule wouldn’t allow you to take the time away.
Well Liz Strauss over at Successful-Blog is doing something to remove those barriers. She’s hosting a Virtual Conference on Monday.
“What’s a Virtual Conference,” you say?
Imagine 12 incredibly sharp people each sharing a little of what they know, and available to answer specific questions on all kinds of bloggy topics like laughter, graphics, creativity, blunders, branding, and yes, even business blogging.
Each speaker does up a post, and then gets an hour in the comment hot box (hot comment box?) for dialog and Q&A.
Here’s how Liz describes it:
Virtual Speakers and Q&A All Day Long
Everyone is invited. Stop by for a while listen in and meet some new friends.
Think theater of the imagination meets speakers and attendees in the comment box for conversation.

But Wait! There’s More
Oh, yes. There’s very much more.
In honor of this Virtual Conference extravaganza, they’ve reduced the conference fee for SOBCon ’07 by $100 until the VC ends Monday Night.
Did you catch that?
A $100 savings! But you have to act fast. That tremendous deal is only available to those who pay for their registration by 9 PM CDT, Monday, March12th.
So if you were hesitating with your registration for any reason, now is the time to get it in. The low price is available right now and ends Monday night.
Then it goes back up to $350. And if you really procrastinate, as of April 1st it goes up another $100.
So make sure you register right now so you don’t miss it.
Oh, and don’t forget to change your clock before you go to bed tonight. 😉
