I have never thought that I will go back to Boston that fast, after being there for a week last year attending eBay live, in fact I still have photos to upload to my flickr account from last years trip (which I am planning on doing within the next week).
However, I was reading my RSS feeds from all over the Internet, like I normally do everyday (Of Course I am subscribed to www.JohnChow.com RSS feed) and I found out that John was coming to visit the U.S. attending the Affiliate Summit east in Boston.
I acted quickly and tried to contact John in every way I could (Mostly by commenting on his blog), and to my surprise, John answered: “Sure! Come on down.”
I quickly got a bus ticket online (it is a long 4 hours ride, but the bus had WiFi access on board, which was just perfect), and I went down to meet John.
Now I have to clarify this: I am not writing this blog post as a blogger, but as a loyal fan of his work.
John was absolutely a humble person, very quite, and straight to the point.
I took the chance to ask him for a video interview to be posted on my blog with some advice from him. He agreed 🙂 (The video will be posted on my YouTube channel shortly and on this blog along with a post).
After meeting John for 15 minutes (That’s all I needed) I felt that I was the luckiest blogger in the world for that moment, so I went on to keep lucky by going to an Irish pub to get my lucky charms from Boston (I had to kill time until the bus time anyway).
However right before I left John, he gave me a gift that any blogger or affiliate marketer will like:
As in the picture below: a duffle bag, a water proof flexible keyboard (lights in the dark), a 2GB flash memory/writing pen and a nice T-shirt.
That was very cool of him, so I thanked him then I asked him this question:
I will write more about this interview and post the video very soon. I will also have a big surprise for you guys soon 😉
This was like a dream come true to me, meeting 3 top bloggers in the world is a thing that I considered to accomplish within the next year, now I am one third done 🙂 (The other 2 bloggers are Darren Rowse and Yaro Starak).
