I have been blogging seriously for about 4 years now. I will be the first to tell you that I feel there is still so much I need to know. I’m eager for tips from trusted sources, I wanna know what is the best thing for my blog, I wanna know how to turn my blog into a my main career. I see other moms attending blog conferences. They look so exciting and full of useful knowledge. Honestly though I have no idea, at this point in my life, how I could possibly ever attend one in person.
I’m a mom of 4 kids, one of which is a newborn and breastfeeding. Then there’s the fact that I work outside of my home part-time and that fact that my hubby can work any time 24/7, 365. He has to request off months in advance for a vacation or anything. He put in for my sister’s wedding in July and it’s looking like he’s not going to get that day off. I mean, he got mandated to come into work Christmas morning this past year!
I don’t have a ready supply of babysitters eager for the chance to watch my 4 kids. Everyone in my family works, even my hubby’s grandmother (our kids great-grandmother). So for me to take off for a blog conference somewhere is almost out of the question. Not to mention the cost of the conference, hotel room, airfare or gas money depending on where it is, money for food, etc. etc. Don’t get me wrong, if I had the chance, I would definitely go, it’s just not been able to work out for me so far.
BUT I found a great conference I can attend ONLINE! And some of the speakers, they’re companies I already work with!
And guess who’s going to this conference? Yep, me! The Blog Workshop is happening May 17-19, 2013 and ticket sales end May 10. Here’s a video that talks about and introduces some of the speakers you can expect to hear from at the conference. Keep watching because there is a short video from each speaker. Here’s some hints: Izea, Blogfrog, and Sverve are just a few.
Did I forget to mention the prizes? Oh I did? Let me get to that. You might be able to see from the agenda that there is a pre-party May 16 as well as giveaways near the conclusion of the conference. You can expect to have a chance at winning prizes like: video blogging equipment, ecommerce solutions from Cloudswipe, LLC packages from Legalzoom and more!
, come learn from and meet the speakers, have a chance at great prizes, and expand your blogging knowledge. I know I’m looking forward to it!
