I just accepted a speaking slot at the new conference called Modern Media Man Summit. It takes place in Atlanta on Sept 9-11 in 2010. You should go. Why?
Because this conference is different. Here’s what it’s all about.
The Modern Media Man Summit will provide dads and men bloggers around the world the opportunity to gather in Atlanta September, 9-11, 2010 to attend an important conference featuring the latest in social media: blogging, podcasting and vlogging, while also harnessing the excitement and electricity of the Internet’s latest buzz.
There are dozens of renowned conferences held annually throughout the world for bloggers, but what none of them have created is a place to gather the new modern media men, specifically, the daddy bloggers, whose influence is fast increasing in the contemporary online space.
The M3 Summit’s goal is to bring together brands, bloggers, and some of the brightest minds in the industry to experience, teach and talk about how the role of Modern Media Man is changing. We know the time, location and topics of focus– educational, personal and business tracks–all will work together to generate the perfect storm in the blogosphere.
This is the best opportunity of the year for men and daddy bloggers, whether they’re stay at home dads, work at home dads, business professionals, the lone entrepreneur, marketer, advertiser and public relations professional to gather in one spot and plot a new course toward progress.
I wanted to speak at this summit because I feel I have a lot to say about being a “modern media man”. I’ve been doing this Web thing for over 15-years now, and I have a lot to share about life, business and love (with my wife). Things that are directly related to the reason why this conference was put together.
I’m going to speaking about how a modern media man can navigate through the tough world of home life and “online” life. If you’re like me, you know that those two things often collide, and can make big problems. Hope to see you there! Here’s my topic session.
Topic: Honey, The Internet Is My Business, Not My Life
How do you balance a career of uber-Internet geek-nicity with a “real” home family life of wife and kids and dog and house and car payments, etc….? It’s not easy, and potentially very toxic if both worlds collide. Are you a Web geek like Jim? If you are then you know the Internet is intertwined into our lives, not because we want it to be, but because it’s our business. The problem is, sometimes our families and spouses don’t understand that, and because of that, problems ensue. Enjoy a fun, informative story about how Jim has (and hasn’t) handled it and pick up tips on how you can as well.
