This past weekend I had the wonderful privilege to attend Bloggy Boot Camp – Business Edition here in Phoenix. If you want to go to a conference for your blog and never have, this is a GREAT one. Its a good one to start with too because this conference had 110 bloggers. Perfect to get your feet wet. It was my first conference, so I came with a bundle of nerves, unsure of what to expect, and high hopes. It far exceeded my expectations! Here is a short conference recap of my time there.
The first day we jumped right into the speakers. I won’t tell you all about the content just yet. I plan to post on each topic over the course of the next couple weeks…but it was some amazing information. Some talks left me inspired and pumped up. Others left me nervous. But above all, I learned SO much about blogging as a business. It was very exciting! Plus, the networking and meeting other bloggers, that was well worth the cost of the conference in itself.
I think my overall impression of the conference and conferenc-ing in general is…I’m HOOKED! I loved it! If you are serious about blogging for business, you must attend at least one conference. The networking, the education, and the whole “getting away” experience is just energizing, inspiring, and motivating. I learned so much about: PR, sponsor posts, law for bloggers, landing a virtual job, and so much more. Plus, its fun to dress up too :)
The conference was two days long with the SITS Girls’ Bloggy Boot Camp. I highly recommend going. They have one in Charlotte and in Dallas this year, and I seriously am considering the Dallas one! :) Click here for more information on their tour schedule. Hope you enjoyed the pictures and keep and eye out for my informational posts coming soon! :)
