    Good article David. Sounds like you are looking for ideas that focus around new ways to produce content, new tool-sets, new methods of writing, etc. You need a lot of experience and/or some people who are focused on not doing “the same old thing” in the room which sounds like it may have been lacking at this event. I’d love to hear about your pursuit and eventual discovery of this information.

    All I know for sure is that there is one way and one way only to “making it” as a blogger with no corporate backing or startup capital behind you : countless hours of unpaid work at a feverish pace. That probably doesn’t appeal to many – but it is the honest truth. Those with passion make it, those without do not. I know I am preaching to the choir here – but it is worth stating again.

    Again, good luck in your pursuit and please do share with us your journey and findings. :-)
