Exclusive tip to Valleywag readers — I just heard of a TOTALLY AMAZING pleasure cruise. In between meals of buffet-style shrimp salad, cruisers will attend exciting lectures about the blogosphere.

Just imagine rubbing shoulders with notables Robert Scoble, B.L. Ochman, and "blogpreneur" Jeremy Wright. I am overcome with chills of excitement — dare I say "blogcitement" — over this blogference full of blogstars.

I mean, not only do you get to meet these people, you get to hear them lecture on electrifying topics:

- Choosing and Developing Content
- Blog Metrics
- Business Applications and RSS
- Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Monetization
- Return on Investment

Core areas of knowledge for everyone in blogdom, and a completely appropriate set of topics for discussion on a cruise ship sailing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Cozumel, Mexico.

Blogonomics cruise! Tons of fun! Bring the kids!
