As you know from a post published by Britt a couple of weeks ago, the IZEA team recently moved into our new office space. It's much roomier than our previous area, and there's ample meeting space (we were practically fighting to use the one conference room we had in our old office) where we can come up with new and innovative ideas!
Earlier this morning Britt & I decided to take a video tour of the office, and share it with you guys...our blog readers. A little insight into us, on a Friday afternoon. The video's kinda long because we got distracted by the dogs in the office (check out our Twitter profile for details) a few times but we tried to cover all areas.
In addition to the tour we also talk about important updates to PostieCon.com including:
- Video from each session at last November's conference
- Speaker information
- Blog America Tour blog posts, twitters, and photos
While you're there make sure and sign-up to receive the latest information about PostieCon 2008.

In case you missed it, here is the SocialSpark announcement Ted and Pete gave at PostieCon in Vegas. Thanks again to all that attended.

I know that many of you are excited to come to PostieCon (as you should be). However, I'm sure that a number of Posties are stretching their budget to get to PostieCon and unless they win it big at the slot machine they won't have much discretionary money for entertainment in Las Vegas. Have no fear, techie's here to show you all the great FREE and inexpensive entertainment you can find in Las Vegas. These activities come in the form of fantastic art, outdoor activities, talented performances, roaring animal shows and beautiful plant displays.
Rock and Roll Memorabilia at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
From the Beatles to ZZTop, The Rock has collectibles that will bring you back in time or have you relish the present in a display that is rare and brings forth the excitement of Rock
Free Casino Lounges
Often casinos have lounges where you can sit down and enjoy music without the hassle of having to purchase food or drink. Let the music flow into your ears for the price of listening…
zero dollars. Generally, these are nice places to relax after a long day at BloggerWorld or PostieCon.
Fremont Street Experience
Launch your eyes towards the 90 foot high four block long extravaganza of lights and sound. It is great for all ages!
The Volcano at the Mirage Hotel and Casino
Come as close to a volcano as you dare. Where else can you time an eruption of a volcano to the minute and watch its lava ignite a lagoon without so much as a blister?
Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area
Come drive, bike, hike or just stand in the grandeur that is the Red Rock Canyon. You’re eyes won’t believe the spectacular deep red colors that paint this part of the Earth.
Atlantis Water Show in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace Hotel and Casino
This is a laser, fountain, fire, steam and production show all in one. This is one of the more popular free shows in Las Vegas. It’s located near the Cheesecake Factory in the Forum Shops.
Fountains at The Bellagio Hotel and Casino
Contemporary or classical music fills the air as it synchronizes with jets of water that spray into the Las Vegas sky. This is definitely my favorite and a must see.
Sirens of TI at Treasure Island hotel and Casino
This “modern musical-meets-action-movie spectacular” is well themed and won’t disappoint the pocket book because… it’s FREE! Bright lights, special effects and great acting bring this show to life.
Masquerade Village Sky Show at the Rio Hotel and Casino
Floats hang from tracks high above the Casino floor in a Carnival themed type of celebratory excitement. Catch some beads and have fun as if you were in New Orleans.
There are a lot of other events that are free, and I'm sure that Jules and other Las Vegas posties will point them out. Enjoy the ones above and you’ll see why Las Vegas is known as the entertainment capital of the world! (Even if you just have little to nothing in your pocket).
Now stop waiting to sign up for Postiecon. You don't want to miss out on all the fun.
Britt and I are off to Las Vegas...to work...believe it or not! We're heading out West to not only take a look at the Las Vegas Convention Center--where we're be holding PostieCon--but also to scope-out kick-butt venues to host Blogger's Choice Awards. In addition, we're also meeting with Rick Calvert of BlogWorld Expo to talk about maximizing our partnership opportunities with them!
It's gonna be an awesome time, and we can't wait to provide you with updates!
Britt & Ash
P.S. We know...we're goofy! But hey, it's early and we're traveling cross-country.
