The difference one letter makes… Betsy goes from QnA to XNA…

I’m back from Merrie Olde England where I got a chance to hang out with a true Blog Queen – Eileen Brown, in the UK IT evangelism team . Last time I hung out with her in England, we were on our way to TechEd Amsterdam, and readying a blogging presentation together. This time was just for…

So there’s been some flash pounding showers here that put Seattle to shame. But I figured I’d wrap up my South by Southwest on the scene coverage with these tidbits (there are some longer food for thoughts posts I need to do once I get back).

The Funny QnA Valentine

Krista Wall led the way to send the Live QnA-ers a Valentine …and they loved it.  (Those little hearts take you to actual QnA questions; Krista spent a ton of time prepping this.)

Making the blogosphere fizz a bit, or, Betsy’s Blogger bath bombs ™

So, I’m going to the Blog Business Summit. I’m really excited as mentioned before. First of all, when I do panel presentations, I tend not to have the same queasy sensations I do when I have to speak on my own. Co-presenting is the same way; I really don’t want to hurl my cookies in…
