IZEAFest is a 4-day blogging event full of networking, parties and other shenanigans that runs from Oct. 1-4. It takes place in Orlando, FL and is put on by Ted Murphy.

    What do you mean you don’t know if you’re going to IZEAfest?! And why didn’t I see you when I was there last year?

    And did I know who you were last IZEAFest? Wasn’t Debby still working at ML at that time?
