image I’m mostly done tonight updating my talk for tomorrow (still hafta practice it in the mirror a couple times since it’s been a while since I spoke in front of a crowd).

Just to update, though, this looks like the event is completely sold out. This means you’ve missed out on the chance to capture the magic of me speaking to a horde of WordCamp aficionados live, but Cali Lewis will be streaming the event live at GeekBrief.TV.

I’ll be speaking, as you may know, on monetizing your blog in a world where AdSense does just about squat for most publishers. I’ll be updating the blog here and at SiliconANGLE more on that after the talk, but I wanted to take a bit and showcase a few of the others that will be speaking at WordCamp Dallas tomorrow and Sunday.

image Cali Lewis will be talking about what it takes to build a ‘vibrant community.’ As I mentioned earlier, you probably know Cali from GeekBrief.TV fame:

GeekBrief.TV is one of the world’s most popular video podcasts, with millions of downloads each month. During this lecture, Cali Lewis will discuss how she continues to build brand equity, drive traffic to her WordPress blog, and nurture her growing base of 46,000+ followers on Twitter.

image Liz Strauss will be talking about what it takes to bring more eyeballs to your website.  Liz and I go wayyy back to last year’s WordCamp.  She’s a really fun person to know, and I’m looking forward to talking to her and listening to her again.  Listening to her speak is a truly worthwhile experience, always. Here’s the gameplan for her talk:

Join Liz in a real-time blog intervention on John P’s blog. John will make the changes as Liz explains what makes a blog attractive, readable, irresistibly sticky.

Back in March, Liz and I sat down for a conversation in Austin.

image Of course, as always, founder of Automattic Matt Mullenweg will be there.  He’ll be doing a sort of “state of the Word” talk and a Q&A with the conference.

Matt and I chatted back on Mashable Conversations last year, and I hope to get a few minutes with him on camera this weekend (if you have any questions for him, leave them in the comments and I’ll see they get asked).
