I’ve attended Blogworld 3 times, and have always enjoyed the learning and networking that takes place there. I’ve been able to connect with fellow small business types, as well as…other bloggers, obviously.

One afternoon, as I was wandering around the Las Vegas Convention Center’s massive floor, I ran across Web Pro News reporter, Abby Johnson. She immediately asked me if she could do an impromptu interview, and I thought about it for a minute or so, and agreed to bend her ear, in front of the video camera.

Well, actually, that’s not really how the interview that you can watch below went down. The real way it happened was that I saw two ladies walking around with a video camera, and I approached them. I asked them if they had ever heard of me, and well, they hadn’t. (I didn’t have my darn Crown with me, which would have given me away.)

I asked them if they were interested in interviewing me about franchising. They hesitated. Then they hesitated a little more. I think I may have then said, “please,” or something to that effect, and Abby agreed to do it.

What follows is our little exchange.
