Blog World Expo Videos

So I took quite a few little videos at Blog World Expo, mostly on the first day, the E&E event which was a special start to the conference and had some great sessions, keynotes, and whatnot.

I am still processing all of the video I have taken, and will upload it all to Vimeo as I have the time.

Here are some videos for those that missed the event.

5 Emerging Trends in Blogging

Darren Rowse, of Problogger fame, recently put up a great video that I wholeheartedly agree with in regards to the emerging trends in blogging, especially in blogs that are being run like a business.

He includes the following:

  • Multiple Author Blogs
  • Multi-Topic Blogs
  • Blogs Converging with Other Types of Sites
  • Portal-Like Design
  • Indirect Monetization

Definitely a video worth watching:

Originally posted on May 20, 2008 @ 6:45 pm Audio Issue Fixed and a Suggestion

So, I was having some serious issues with recently, and it didn’t look like anyone could help me out. It took a while for the live support to realize I am not an idiot and the problem wasn’t between the keyboard and chair. We narrowed it down slowly to their client system. Why would neither computer be able to record audio, despite using different browsers, different flash versions, different microphones, on computers with different operating systems?

The answer was one of those moments where you slap yourself in the head. There is an audio quality slider. I assumed it didn’t do anything but improve or decrease the audio quality, but when I moved the slider to its maximum, suddenly, my audio was getting through. As I slowly moved it down, it continued to work until I got to around 13kHz, where it just stopped.

I was never able to find out why the audio slider was responsible for the problem, and frankly, I don’t care. I am just happy to be able to record audio with my videos on once again.

So next time I have a live session, hopefully more of you will show up, and I will have working audio next time. I really love the platform, and having tried some of their competitors, I am ready to say that is the best and despite the issue I had, it was worth figuring out so that I didn’t have to deal with the quality issues and user interface issues that other services have.

Sidenote Suggestion

So, if you work at and are reading this, I have a suggestion for the company. Jonathan Snook and I realized that while video is great, being a talking head isn’t always what I want to be in front of a large audience. I know there is an easy way to just broadcast audio, but it would be nice if it offered MP3 downloads of all shows. That way people could subscribe to the audio portion of my video streams, if they don’t want to watch me talk.

If you could make it so people could download MP3’s from the videos, be they recording video and audio or just audio, I would really appreciate it, as your sound quality is so much better than most of the other services out there today, and you would quickly become one of the biggest one to many audio broadcasting services out there.

Questions and Answers Live on Ustream

I am looking at having a live session on Ustream where people can ask me their blogging related questions. I will be running the session from 8pm EST tomorrow night until I get tired of it. I will be using’s built in recording function to record the session.

I am hoping at doing more of these as I have always enjoyed them in the past. If you have a specific time or day that would work better for you, please let me know.

Also, if you would like a one on one video session, I am available for consultation.

Join me on my channel tomorrow night.

Update: Didn’t work out as Ustream wouldn’t transmit audio from either of my computers. More on that soon.
