I'm rolling up my sleeves and asking every deaf and hard of hearing person in the blogosphere to help Deaf Mom accomplish an incredible feat:
I need hundreds of hits on this link: Send DeafMom to SOBCon'08!
What's SOBCon, you ask? It has nothing to do with the expletive. It's not even "Son of a buck!" as my Aunt Anna used to say.
SOBCon is a blogging conference for Successful and Outstanding Bloggers. According to the website:
"SOBCon08 is “Biz School for Blogging.” This year’s event tracks entrepreneur bloggers and corporate bloggers alike, with an innovative format and a stellar cast of speaker/instructors.
The SOBCon08 program guarantees to send each attendee home with a Business Action Plan that can be immediately executed for measurable success. The “mastermind” teams in which attendees will be interacting will provide uniquely deep working relationships that are more meaningful than the business card trading found at other conference/networking events.
I attended this conference last year and it was wonderful. I learned a few new things and was able to network with some awesome bloggers, including Liz Strauss, Wendy Piersall, Terry Starbucker and Phil Gerbyshak.
I really, really want to go again this year. I want to meet Stephen Hopson, another deaf blogger who plans to attend. I want to sit down and talk to all the other bloggers from last year who I didn't get a chance to know. And you, dear Deaf Read Community can send me there! The blogger with the most clicks from his/her blog to the SOBCon Event gets to go free!
So I'm asking for the power of DeafRead bloggers to show how tight our Deaf Community is--if every single one of you DeafRead bloggers clicks on this link, you can send Deaf Mom to the SOBCon!
