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. It is the brainchild of Liz Strauss, a fabulous blogger who I have mentioned often in previous posts. I was thrilled when she named me an SOB (Successful and Outstanding Blogger) back in October 2007.
She and a great group of supporters and presenters are hosting SOBCon2008 in downtown Chicago on May 2-4, 2008.
Sadly, I can’t make it this year but plan to be there next year if at all possible! I had the pleasure of meeting Liz at SXSW earlier this month and several of the bloggers who will be participating in the conference. If you are a business blogger, you should definitely check it out and sign up for this conference if you can!

Liz Strauss did a post asking us how we thank our blog friends and it got me thinking as Liz’s posts often do. As 2007 comes to a close, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank and recognize all the amazing connections with amazing people I’ve made as a result of starting this blog this year. Your posts and comments have made me laugh, shed tears, smile, raise my eyebrows, share, grow as a person, and most importantly LEARN. Thank you! In no particular order (except for the first one), they are:
Connie Reece of Every Dot Connects – She is the one who got me started with blogging!
Wendy Piersall of eMoms at Home. She gave me the honor of guest posting on her blog with a post called Entrepreneurship: A Blessing or a Curse?
Liz Strauss of Successful Blog – she called me an SOB (Successful and Oustanding Blogger)
Naomi Dunford of IttyBiz – check out her mini case study on Babble Soft
Pearl at Interesting Observations
Neena of A Mom’s Life at Neenmachine – check out her guest baby tip on keeping a baby food journal
Carole Hayes of Alias Tex – check out her guest baby tip post on increasing your milk supply
Bryan Mennell of Austin Startup – check out my guest post called Parenting a Startup and Kids.
Carleen Hawn of Found|Read – check out her post about one of my posts called Sometimes, You Gotta Ignore the Experts
Nataly Kagan of Work It, Mom – she mentioned me in one of her posts on her personal blog Learning Optimism that she later posted on Huffington Post.
Thom Singer of Some Assembly Required – He recently did a post on passion and mentioned me.
Lee Aase from Lines from Lee – he helped me with setting up the Babble Soft facebook page.
Robb at the Robblog – long time friend. I think I forced him into blogging or something like that.
Clay Nichols of DadLabs – fellow Austin entrepreneur in the parenting area. If you haven’t seen it (and aren’t easily offended) check out their Manly Breastfeeding Video.
Eric Doggett of DogBlog – a fellow Austin entreprenuer/photographer
Shane & Peter of Shane & Peter – because of Shane’s post requesting us to interview ourselves I wrote a post called An Entrepreneurial Self Portrait.
Maryam Scoble of Maryamie – don’t be surprised if you see me on the Scobleshow in 2008!
Char at Casual Keystrokes
Randa Clay of Randa Clay Design
Jennifer Laycock of The Lactivist– nursing out loud
Karen Rani and Vicki Maxel of Swank Webstyle – they did my entrepreMusings blog design and implementation as well as our current corporate site.
We have exchanged meaningful (at least to me!) emails/blog comments, spoken on the phone, or met in person this past year. They have helped me in my journey and I hope that I’ve been able to help them too! I apologize if I’ve forgotten someone as I’m typing this up before we head out for the holidays. If I have, let me know and I’ll add you to the list.
Thank you all for enriching my life in 2007!
