This year will be my second year attending the infamous Blogalicious conference and I am BEYOND excited! Last year,I was an attendee and this year, I will be one of the Social Media Ambassadors. Last year was not only my first year attending the conference, but also my first year blogging. I guess I’ll be celebrating my blog anniversary as well! Last years sponsors included some HUGE names, Coca-Cola, Kia, and Dove. There was a kickoff party sponsored by Coca-Cola that provided drinks and some amazing dishes! The kickoff party gave everyone a chance to mingle and network before getting down to business for the weekend.
The next day of the conference there were a series of workshops that provided invaluable information for new bloggers, seasoned vets, and those that were considering expanding their blog into new and different marketing opportunities.
After the workshops, there was more fun awaiting in the various conference rooms that housed sponsored parties with different themes.
I can’t say that last years conference exceeded my expectations because I was new to the blogging world and didn’t really know what to expect. All I knew was that there was this big blogging conference that I had been hearing about and it happened to be in my city that year. I am so glad I went and went without expectations because I was able to have an open mind that acted as a sponge to soak up all of the knowledge. Aside from the information that I still carry with me to today to run my successful blog, I made new friends that shared the same interests as me and were willing to help. You can’t put a price on that, period! I can’t wait to see that folks that I met last year and take my blog to a new level!
