You want it, you got it! is open!

I was a speaker

IZEAFest 2009, the blogger conference that I have been telling you about since IZEAFest 2008, is happening October 1-4, 2009 and it includes multiple parties, amazing speakers and a blogger takeover day of SeaWorld! Did I mention the whole Blogging Conference will take place at SeaWorld? I didn’t, well it is!

I took a quick run through the new site and I think it is amazing. Of course, it is missing yours truly as one of the speakers this year. I’ll miss that, but my good friends Julie and Brett are going to be moderators this year! I can’t wait to see them on stage. I’m also a little bummed not to be seeing Robert Scoble speak but Ted Murphy has stepped up and will be keynoting Friday morning with a session called Developing Your Personal Brand. I couldn’t think of anyone better to talk about that. I’ve been to many blogging conferences with Brett, Julie and Ted and they are going to knock your socks off. I’m confident now more than ever that when you take a look at the site you are going to be climbing the walls to get in to the event.

This was a sponsored post from IZEA. I’ve also posted quite a bit about IZEAFest in the past. Some of my past posts about IZEAFest 2009 were 10 Great Reasons to Go! and 10 Items to Bring With You to IZEAFest 2009. I’ll be posting more about IZEA in the future and more about IZEAFest 2009 as well. That is because I’m a big fan of IZEA and also because I have some passes to IZEAFest 2009 give away. The “I’m Not A Famous Blogger” IZEA Insiders Crew and my readers will get first crack at those passes.

Eva has a box that is now empty but was filled with clothes from her Mimi and Grandpa Dano. They sent the box up ahead of them for their trip here. They are staying with us for the next few days. It is really nice that they have some time to spend with Eva and they are going to go to Eva’s first “dance” class tomorrow… Wiggles and Giggles… at the YMCA. I think Eva will love a class like this so I’m anxious to hear how she does.

Today is the last possible day that comments can be counted on my two posts Being Responsible and Blogs, Brews 2 Recap. I’m in a little contest with some other bloggers and I’m slightly behind the leader and could use every comment I can get, so please help me out even if you already commented before.

Also a friend of mine Autumn has a dog named Cosmo and Cosmo is a mixed breed from a high kill shelter. Cosmo is in a little contest too. He needs some votes. Autumn says:

If he wins he will be cover dog for the month of May on People can vote for Cozmo at you must also confirm your email. Only one vote per email. I have not received any spam from this company and we have ordered from them.

I just think it would be great if a little mixed breed pup from a high kill shelter would win.

He will win a couple of prizes that we do not need so we will donate them to a local animal shelter, also I will make a donation based on the number of votes he wins by to a shelter or animal organization.

I love hearing how people will help out the animal shelters. I’m helping my sister on a new project for our local animal shelter and it isn’t quite ready yet but once it is I’ll let you all know.
