Heh. Matt suggests that I get invited to stuff because I blog about it later.

That's not so far-fetched. I went to Web 2.0 on a blogger pass (meaning that neither I or Yahoo paid the ~$2,500 entry fee--thanks John!). But you know what? I blogged every damn session and had tons of folks tell me they were reading every word of it. People at the conference, back in the office, and even folks in remote corners of the world.

And I enjoyed it. The applause would start and I'd hit the post button in Ecto.

That all made me feel good. This blogging stuff really works once in a while. And it means that the conference folks probably got their money's worth out of me. Maybe I'll be back there next year for Web 2.1 or whatever they call it?

Sadly, I may have to miss the Technorati party. This month's BASA meeting is the same night, and flying is pretty important to me too. Hopefully others will blog it.
