Sneak Peek: If You Build It...

Before New Year's, I posted information about a non-CCG event with two Blog superstars. Just thought I'd provide a teaser Q&A with FrankWarren of for those of you who may be on the fence about whether or not to attend...

Q: What do you think is the "secret" to's success?
WARREN: I think most of us are interested in people's authentic lives and Blogs create an opportunity to tell untold stories in ways that make strangers seem like intimates.

Q: What do you think are 3-5 of the best blogs out there? 3-5 of the worst blogs out there… if you’re willing to comment on that.
WARREN: The worst Blogs I would not want to bring attention to. Three popular Blogs that I like are Boing Boing, Mashable and Huffington Post. Two less popular site I like are Wooster Collective and Found Magazine.

Q: What is the best piece of advice you can give to someone looking to start a blog?
WARREN: Here is my concise, self-contradictory advice: You won't make any money Blogging, so you might as well create something that you will enjoy even if you never get a single visitor. When you get a ton of visitors and build a community, listen to their criticism more then their praise. And finally, when you start getting rich from your Blog, it's time to start thinking about your next one.

Still wondering whether or not to attend? Well, consider this: Frank Warren is among the top 20 bloggers in the world and Rohit is among the top 5k of the 133 million blogs that exist and among the top 50 marketing bloggers in the world. Not too shabby!
