For Those Seeking Trade Show Marketing Enlightenment

Trade Show Guru

A(nother) Blog is Born!

September 14th, 2008 · 5 Comments · Uncategorized

Welcome to the Trade Show Guru, WordPress blog #4,427,555 (give or take a few hundred). Although I call myself a “guru“, which I will explain more in later posts, I admit that I can be a bit slow to start using new technology. I’m not ashamed to admit that I didn’t “trust” ATM machines when they first came out, and for years would still go inside the bank to deal with a real human. And I was one of the last people I know to get a cell phone. But when I change, I change. I go inside a bank about twice a year now, if that. I no longer have a “land line” at my house, I rely¬†only on my cell phone. Anyway, I seldom read blogs until a year ago. Now for the past six months or so, I’ve been following a handful of blogs regularly, which again, will be the subjects of future posts. One blogger in particular inspired me to finally bite the bullet and start my own blog. I doubt that I will be as prolific with posts as any of these blogs, but I will try. The Trade Show Guru will mix business with pleasure, and other stuff. You will find solid trade show exhibiting advice posted here on a “regular” basis, but you’ll also probably get a lot of general observations, thoughts, and the occasional random rant. My first few posts will be about marketing in general, and trade show marketing, but I also intend to introduce my “friends of the trade show guru” series to thank those blogs and bloggers who have inspired me, and to point out blogs that I think are interesting.

    hi Will,
    Thanks for stopping by. It’s interesting now being on the “other side” of a blog, that is, being the “writer” instead of the “reader”. It’s an on-going education, to say the least. I’ll be taking you up on your offer for suggestions!

    I wish you well with this blog. It’s pretty entertaining, as I’ve already gone through your other posts, so you’re already on your way. Good luck with it all.

    hi Mitch,
    Thanks for stopping by. To anyone reading this, I recommend they click through to your blog and read your “blogging tips”. Good advice. I hope someday to have the time and energy to post as often as you recommend and as you do on your blog, I’m Just Sharing.
    ~ Steve

    Thanks Steve. And taking time to reply to readers is no chore at all, unless you’re trying to respond to 300 posts a day. And I’m not. lol
