Izea at BlogWorld New Media Expo

Tuesday, September 7th, 2010

Many of you probably don’t know about my history with a company called Izea (previously known at PayPerPost). Turns out that Izea is really the key to me being able to live my dream as a full time blogger and internet entrepreneur today. Without Izea I’d still be working the 9 to 5 and submitting resumes looking for a job. Instead, I’m working from home, working whatever hours I want and never changing out of my pajamas. It’s an awesome life. In fact, if you want to hear more of my story come to WordCamp Las Vegas where I’ll be sharing more details about becoming a full time blogger.

All of this intro is really just my way of saying that Izea should hook me up with a free pass to the BlogWorld New Media Expo in the lovely Las Vegas. You can learn more about the contest here.

As Blogger 61 in the Izea blogger family, I feel that I’m in a unique position to tell stories about Ted (CEO of Izea). Don’t believe me? Check out this blog post I made up back in 2006 about Ted really being a guy named Willie trying to hook up with Colleen. Although my favorite story about Ted was probably the Big Green Monster and eating a large pizza. Ask him about that one!

I can’t make any promises about what will happen during BlogWorld Expo with Ted and the Izea team. However, I can’t make any promises about what won’t happen either. Just don’t be surprised if we find Ted swimming in a big sheet cake at the end of the night while 3 Izea ladies massage his back with the icing.

While they say What Happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas, that’s just not possible at a blogging conference. I’ll have the camera and the Flip video ready to make sure it doesn’t.
