Well, after a grueling 14 hour trip (I really don’t like the Seattle airport!!), I’m home and running on about 5 hours of sleep from the last two nights combined.

I promise I’ll be back in full force tomorrow. Until then, you can read my guest post over at ProBlogger today if you haven’t already. I wrote it at 4:00am this morning on my layover, so if you find freaky typos, can you please let me know? ;)

I read that post earlier today and completely overlooked that you had written it. Either way, congratulations on getting featured there! There were some excellent points made and I’m already making an effort to put some into action.

Welcome home! We’re anxiously awaiting a flood of awesome articles inspired by your retreat with the big dudes. ;)

I’m with Scott on this one, Wendy.

Eagerly awaiting a flood of advice that will make me a millionnaire.

Just one tip will do nicely though. ;)

Enjoy some well-deserved sleep! Nice work with the ProBlogger post, looks like your networking is already paying off ;)

Get some sleep! I’m guessing you have enough blogging information to keep us going for quite a while now. Can’t wait!

That ProBlogger post is a good one, Wendy. I’ve passively sat buy and watched Darren’s group writing projects without getting my act together for a year now … your pointers will help me get motivated for the next one.

Isn’t it amazing how long a plane trip can take these days? I’ve never been involved in the problogging circuit but I spent years going to trade shows and conferences in the past … one of the main reasons I now have no regular job … the events themselves are often well worth attending … but the attending is the part that really can drag one down. The ‘Net should have been able to make a better substitute … but I haven’t seen one yet.

Great post on Problogger Wendy!

My blog is only a month old and so far I have only really concentrated in getting traffic from forums. Your post sorted a lot of things out in my head when it comes to leveraging traffic from other popular sites and I will definately be making more of an effort promoting my site in the blogging community from now on.


PS: Some of you may be interested in seeing my latest post. I have summarised my sites performance over it’s first month. Check it out here

Talk about magnetic title. When I first read it, I thought someone had hacked problogger… I was going to quickly read your post then head over there to watch the mayhem!

Your site is looking phenomenal! I am always blown away by your graphic-design brilliance. (What’s your secret?)

I just wanted to wish you a hearty congratulations on your recent windfall with the SF conference. I am a big believer that the right things happen to the right people, and your experience is just one more piece of compelling evidence!

Keep up the great work!

Wendy, I’ve really appreciated the report on your blogging retreat, it sounded like an extremely motivating couple of days. Thank you for that.

I couldn’t find a way to comment on your post over at Problogger, so I hope you don’t mind me adding a few words here. I have taken part in one or two group writing projects, but your post made me aware of the much bigger picture, the prospects that were open, and how to more greatly benefit from any group writing projects. It will make a big difference venturing into something with a better knowledge of how to work it, and I appreciate that.

I’m really looking forward to future posts here. I find it a very helpful read - and I haven’t yet ventured further in…I must just look at your Wordpress Resources…

Wendy, you are brilliant! Your post at Problogger is excellent! Not a single typo. How do you write like that on so little sleep?

With that kind of energy, talent and generosity of spirit you desserve every bit of success you achieve. You were so the right person for this conference. Thanks for sharing your learning with us! I can’t wait to read more!

Wendy, you’re doing an awesome job. You’re probably not going to have writers block for a year. Lucky YOU!

I’ll have you know that I could NOT sleep night before last after reading your and Kris’ posts. My mind was just flooded with ideas that I just can’t wait to get in place.

Can’t wait to read more. I could stand to lose a little more sleep myself :)

Hi Wendy!

Incredible advise over at ProBlogger! You practice what you preach–from its bullet points, to commenting and sharing praise when due!

You are an unusual gem and so pleased to watch you shine! Your light encourages us all to act and apply your tips with great hope (as good fortune will come to those who work for it)–such as yourself!

Sleep soundly and enjoy living your dreams when your eyes open.

[Sorry for all the exclamation points, but I’m SO excited for you and empowered by your generousity and love!]

Peace, Ponn

Do you live in Seattle?

On March 22nd, 2007 at 5:53 pm, Wendy Piersall said:

No Jimmy - I just spent a very uncomfortable night in the airport there! I landed there for my layover at 1:00am, but the whole airport was closed! So I had to wait in the cold baggage claim area for 5 hours until I could get back in - and had to go through the check-in line and airport security ALL over again!

I’ll admit I was so tired at that point that my crankiness probably tainted my Seattle airport experience. ;)

On March 22nd, 2007 at 7:54 pm, Alex Shalman said:

I had enough of your crankiness Wendy! Next time I see you, you are getting a hug!

On March 22nd, 2007 at 7:56 pm, Wendy Piersall said:

Alex! So good to see you here now that I’m back around too! I’m not cranky anymore - (((Alex))). :D

Some good advice for those looking for VC. The biggest thing i always say when it comes to VC have your ducks in a row and dont be afraid to show your true side which is usually a passion for what you are bringing forth.
