Over these past few weeks, my business partners and I have been preparing for UBD’s presence at the Blog World Expo which is being held November 8-9 in Las Vegas. This is not only the first trade show where we will have a booth, but it is also the first trade show that I have ever attended.
Blog World Expo is going to be one of the most talked about events in the blogosphere in the next few weeks. There are a ton of very notable bloggers and industry kingpins attending including Shoemoney, John Chow, Aaron Wall, and even TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington.
Las Vegas is only a 4-hour drive for us, so Matt, Josh, Dave and I will be driving up the morning of November 7th. We will be in Las Vegas until Friday night, so that means lots of pictures and video will be coming your way.
By the way, Dave is our new CTO for UBD. He is a great guy and you will be hearing more from him soon.
My good friends Prija and Ms. Danielle will also be attending Blog World. I have met Prija before since he lives only a few hours from me.
UBD will be rolling out a new website and logo within the next two weeks. We worked closely with David Airey to craft a unique logo that we feel encapsulates the brand of UBD. Below, you can see a preview of our new logo.
Another cool thing – we just hired 2 more full time in house designers at UBD, so quite soon, I will be returning to a regular schedule of blogging 4-5x per week. I have been blogging consistently for the past 8 months, and this past month has been my most infrequent month ever… That’s lame and I will make up for that!
Anyone else going to Blog World?

Nice new logo, it is very fresh! I hope you go well at the expo and get a heap of new clients!
Hey Thomas, thanks for the kind words. 🙂 Yes, fresh is something we were going for with the logo. Hats off to David Airey. He is a wonderful guy to work with!
Blog World should be a lot of fun – we will have a ton of photos and video to show you guys! 😛
Very kind of you to say so, Nate. Likewise, it was a pleasure working with you, and I’m very glad you’re happy with the final logo design.
Best of luck at the expo, and perhaps I’ll see you at the next one.
Nice work David. Maybe a write up on the ‘design process’? 😉
Hey Nate, I like the work you did for Mike Pedersen Golf. Nice one!
Will do, Armen. 😉
Hey buddy, glad to see you’re attending. I’ll see you there!
Awesome, dude! Are you coming with anyone else or just yourself? Matt and I are looking forward to meeting you!
Just me this time 🙁 I’m sure I won’t have a problem keeping busy though 🙂 Are you going to PostieCon too?
Not going to PostieCon, but I will be back in Vegas a month later for Pubcon. UBD is sponsoring Shoemoney’s “Party Like A Search Engine Rockstar” Contest.
New logo looks nice and clean – nice job David.
Wish I could make Blog World. Hoping one comes to London!
Thanks very much, Adnan.
All the best for the trade fair. The logo looks very elegant in its simplicity and form.
I wish to come… all the way from Singapore…

We will see you there Nate! We are looking forward to meeting you guys after you did such a great job on our blog design.
Hey guys! Yeah we are looking forward to meeting you too! It will be a very exciting time!
Logo looks great! Clean and simple. I like it!
Looks like a very cool Logo Nate! It also sounds like your UBD business is really taking off. Congrats on that.
Hey Mike, thanks… 🙂 Yes, it has been extremely time consuming to say the least, but I am loving every minute of it.
Sounds like a lot of things are going to happen here. Wish I could make it…
Hey there Nate, long time no see.
I sure am excited to be back just in time for an event like this, although attendance is impossible for me, I hope that we’ll get to see new and serious innovations presented by and to bloggers.
I haven’t been to the site in ages but glad I stumbled back upon it. Shoe is a mad man haha.
Any updates on Blog World Nate? Any latest news before it all kicks off?
Im not too sure about the new logo Nate. It is just quite bland.
That is a cool logo. I like your designs.
I love the logo Nate.
Very nice work David, as always!
Wish I could have attended, but there is always the coming years! Hope I can be there soon.
Like it too… I prefer the clean desing in general… it often looks much better than those overloaded graphics
Wow, I love the design. First time at your blog. Love it, just reading around in the archives and commenting. Keep up the good work, and I hope you had fun at the expo.
The new logo design is simple yet very memorable. I really like it. I was wondering does anyone here no of any good logo design sites out there? I would like something which is affordable yet the logos are unique and professional-looking. I’ve heard a lot about LogoDesignCreation.com (http://www.logodesigncreation.com) but I still can’t really decide. Hope to hear some suggestions and inputs from all of you who maybe have certain experience in hiring online services. Thanks!
