Sunday Moment of Gratitude, Winners List, Active Giveaways and MORE!

This week, I am grateful for

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - For another reminder to simply be grateful for each day! As you know, I spent the bulk of the week at the BlogWorld East New Media Expo which was sharing space with BookExpo America. I didn't have much time to visit BookExpo, but when I did get a chance to visit, Jane Fonda was speaking, I had a chance to stay and hear her Questions and Answers with the audience, and she was asked "What inspires you?", and her response was quite simple yet very profound "Still Being Around", "Just the fact that I'm still here inspires me". Her response has stayed with me all week. And when problems seemed to overwhelm my thoughts, I remembered that just being here really is the gift, and if you have another day you can let it be a clean slate or merely a repeat of the one that came before.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - Even though I'm spending mine mostly getting caught up, I am very happy that it's Memorial Day Weekend! How are you celebrating this weekend? At the beach? Family Barbeque?

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ - The opportunity to learn from my peers in the industry. BlogWorld has helped me to feel even more energized about my blog and my writing. The only real roadblock to my success are my perceptions and thoughts, and those can be always be improved and changed to suit my highest good!  I will post more recaps about specific sessions and some over due event recaps throughout the week.

See you at the BlogWorld New Media Expo Tomorrow!

Last week I co-hosted a Twitter Party (#BWEchat) to help announce that the BlogWorld New Media Expo (#BWENY) was coming to New York City! And soon the big day will finally be here, the Expo begins Tuesday, May 24th and runs through May 26th. You will see Twitter Updates on my Twitter Feed @Tracy_Iglesias and blog updates as time and the wi-fi Gods allow!

For those of you looking for me, my twitter avatar is pretty accurate, except right now I'm sans bangs (Mother Nature is being unusually cruel and cranking up the humidity). I of course will have something 'butterfly' very visible, be it jewelry or clothing. I'll also have my red leather notebook with me, as great as netbooks and laptops are, I still like taking notes retro style!

This is the first time BlogWorld is hitting New York City, and much like last year's BlogHer Conference, I am SO happy to have this conference coming to my backyard! As much as I love to travel, this week I wouldn't have been able to fly out, so to have it here is a huge sigh of relief! I am keeping my fingers crossed that the MTA will be running on time this week, last week with various construction, it took me almost double the time to arrive everywhere than it should have!

I'll be in amazing company, bloggers, writers, podcasters, entrepreneurs and brands and like most conferences, I'm sure it's going to inspire me and turbo charge me into high gear!

The Book Expo is also sharing space with BlogWorld, so I'm looking forward to taking a walk over and checking out The Book Expo as well.

If you are attending and would like to meet up, Tweet Me! (@Tracy_Iglesias)

#BWEchat Twitter Party – WIN a Free Pass to BlogWorld NY and More!

Exciting News Butterflies, I am helping the BlogWorld Expo spread the word that they are coming to NYC this year by co-hosting a Twitter Party! And as always, YOU are invited! Yes 'The Twitter Party DJ' is playing hostess again this week alongside @blogworldexpo 's @allison_boyer - I couldn't be more excited to see the Expo come to New York, while you all know I love to travel, my schedule would not have permitted me taking that week off, so to have the Expo coming to the Big Apple makes it a whole lot easier for me to attend!

BlogWorld will be hosting its first ever virtual Twitter party on Wednesday to help spread the word and answer your questions about the upcoming New York event. It will also be a great way to connect with others who will be attending, so I hope to see you there!

Here are the details:

What: #BWEchat Twitter Party

When: Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at 8:00 PM EST

Where: Twitter!

Twitter parties (also called Twitter chats) are held online, with virtual attendees all following the same hashtag (in this case, #BWEchat). You can follow through Twitter’s main website or a desktop client like Tweetdeck, but they move really quickly, so I recommend using a site like Tweet Grid or Tweet Chat to follow along.

Who: Attendees, speakers, track leaders, BlogWorld staff, and anyone interested in learning more about the conference and meeting others who might be attending or have attended in the past. The chat hosts will be @blogworldexpo and @Tracy_Iglesias so make sure you follow these accounts!

PRIZES: By attending #BWEchat, you’ll have a change to win awesome prizes:
  • TWO 2-Day passes
  • TWO 1-Day passes
  • SIX Exhibits-only passes
This is important: To qualify for one of the prizes, you must tweet the following message sometime between now and the party:
I’m attending #BWEchat Wed 5/18, 8 PM ET. Join us for a chance to win a free pass to BlogWorld NY! #BWENY
RSVP: Once you've tweeted, let us know by posting the link to your tweet here:

You can tweet it as many times as you want until the chat starts! You must also come to the virtual party on Wednesday and participate by tweeting at least once between 8 PM and 9 PM EST (introduce yourself, shares some tips, ask a question, etc.). We’ll announce the winners throughout the night, so the earlier you get there, the more chances you’ll have to win! If you have a specific question about BlogWorld NYC, please feel free to ask when you leave us your comment with your tweet link, make sure to put your twitter name in the comment field to, so we reply to you directly!

Please remember to RSVP by tweeting and posting the link to your tweets at the link above, do not comment here to RSVP, the RSVP's are being taken directly at blogworld's site!

I hope to see you at the Twitter Party and I hope to see you at the Expo next week too!
