I’ve been in Hawaii for Hawaii Geek Week studying social the Aloha way, including a day long session in the Social Media Club Hawaii Workshop, and am confused as many of you about this the new “social” on the web and what it really means.
I woke up this morning with part of the definition cleared up with the announcement of a fantastic online party with Liz Strauss to celebrate the 3rd birthday of Successful and Outstanding Blogger with an invitation to 718 SOBs.
An SOB is a “Successful and Outstanding Blogger,” an award going out to 718 blogs and bloggers over the past three years. I’ve been extraordinarily honored with the SOB Award a couple of times, which shows that you don’t have to do anything very special to be included.
I’m in terrific company among top bloggers, bottom bloggers, bottom bloggers who became top bloggers, and top bloggers who lost their way and then recovered. The list covers the gamut but features the best of the best in blogging from their unique perspective on their world.
SOBCon is the “Successful and Outstanding Bloggers Conference” which brings together the best bloggers in the world, and those who want to learn from them, annually for the Biz School for Bloggers. May 1-3, 2009, will be the third annual SOBCon event in Chicago.
Liz Strauss has changed the face of the web with the power of the blog conversation with the SOB WordPress Widget and the Liz Strauss Comment Counter by Ozh WordPress Plugin, which PlanetOzh created to honor Liz as the queen of comments and interaction. She is also the author of the popular selling ebook, The Secret to Writing a Successful and Outstanding Blog — The Insider’s Guide to the Conversation That’s Changing How Business Works.
If you are an SOB, or SOB lurker and want to know what all the noise is about, check out the party invitation guidelines and come join all the SOBs from around the world to celebrate blogging and the art of the blog conversation with Liz Strauss.
