Blogger Conferences that can Help Grow That Business
It’s that time of year! Blogging conferences are a great way for networking and ideas! I haven’t been to any blogging specific conferences, but I have been to a TON of medical conferences, and they’re such a great opportunity to meet new people, fellow colleagues, see what others are doing in their field, and to get those brain juices flowing for ideas for your next pivot.
Why attend blogging conference?
Education - social media, business of blogging, sessions, panels - meet with experts who have been in it for awhile
Meeting with sponsors
Here are some blogging conferences I’ve researched extensively, and talked with attendees, that have come up repeatedly as the most bang for your buck (because believe me, conferences can get expensive, and that’s registration alone).
*Disclaimer: I have not been to any of these conferences, although I REALLY want to. When I get the funds, I will definitely sign up for one of these conferences. I've done a ton of research on the MANY types of blogger conferences out there, and here's what I've narrowed down as ones that I find would be most valuable from reviews and conversations with other bloggers.
When: usually in the beginning of the year
Blog conference for the fitness minded!
Most well known conference for bloggers in the personal finance space.
Largest conference for lifestyle bloggers. They have different themes annually. In 2018, it will be about health and wellness, so if you’re a health and wellness blogger, check it out.
Lifestyle and creative bloggers - “one-day conference filled with panels, workshops, mentor power hours, break out sessions, delicious food, cocktails and much more. The core focus of all of our conferences is to entertain, enlighten and inform creative women around key topics surrounding the digital space, entrepreneurship & life as a modern woman.”
Blogging conference for women in the travel and hospitality field.
A conference and networking event for travel bloggers, online travel journalists, new media content creators, travel brands and industry professionals. Each year, TBEX partners with fantastic host destinations in North America, Europe and Asia Pacific to bring the travel industry’s most creative minds together to learn, network and do business.
Even though I haven’t been to any of these conferences, they are definitely on my list! I love networking and connecting with people - there’s something about being surrounded by like-minded people that gets you motivated! If you’re looking to network and get your knowledge on as well, conferences are a great way to do it. Having been to several medical conferences, I imagine a blogging conference would give you that much more knowledge with a little bit of fun thrown into it too!
