Deborah Micek here, reporting from the Blog World Expo 2009 floor. (not exactly LIVE, but this quickie video will give you a feel for what Blog World Expo is really all about.)

Blog World & New Media Expo in Vegas this past weekend was yet another mega success (at least for those of us who made it so by getting what we came for. Yeah, it’s good to have goals when you go to Blog WORLD, ya know what I’m sayin?)

With over 300 speakers on panels at Blog World Expo all in the span of just 3 days, it can get rather overwhelming. Especially if you go to all the sponsored tweetups, meetups and after parties sponsored by cool companies and people like @JasonFalls @Mashable, @AdventureGirl, @TechSet, @Mike_Stelzner, @MariSmith, @bhgre_sherry and so many others.

By the last day, at the last hour of the day, I found a nice corner in the back of the breakout area to put my feet up, laugh a little and just hung out with my good friends (and well respected colleagues) Denise Wakeman and Rich Brooks. (Yes, there’s a back-story to this reunion meetup – but we’ll save that for another post. mmkay?)

In this casual 3 minute video, Rich Brooks from Maine, asks me to reveal how I do it all.

How do I get from one event to another and keep on going? Motivational secret revealed in this video. (I Guarantee you, no other motivational speaker has EVER revealed this little known secret that only the MEGA successful know about.)

As you enjoy this fun, impromptu video interview that THE Rich Brooks originally created to send to his brother-in-law, you may notice “another layer” in the background. Actually a few Tribal factors are also seen throughout the video.

Ok, that’s all I’m saying. I’ll leave the rest of the clues and social media tribal customs for friends, fans and tweeps to uncover in the video and reveal in the comments below. (Be sure to add your Twitter handle!)

Do you notice the Tribal language and customs of Tweeters in the video? Let’s just say, in casual, conversational interviews like this, there are many other layers and lessons to learn from – if you dig beneath the surface, and ask the right questions when they pop up in your mind. Ya’ know, the smart questions like, “WTF is that?!” #LikeTheLongAssHashtags and shtuff like that.

Over & Out,

PS: We also touched on a hot topic discussed at Blog World Expo (otherwise known as #BWE09), which was: “Sponsored Conversations“. With the FTC regulations coming into play on Dec 1, 2009, it’s a topic we all need to be aware of. And we address it in this video in our usual, irreverent fashion: indirect, and with humor. Feel free to share the real business lessons and your thoughts on sponsored conversations in the comments below. I’d love to hear your take on it.

PPS: While The Rich Brooks from Maine has a wide array of credentials, including being the President of flyte, and Fast Company Expert Blogger, he’s best known for his accomplishments in the Twittersphere for inventing the supervillain named The Sandwich Svengali. (More on that story at the upcoming SXSW “conference” in Austin, Texas.)

‘Nuff Said
