It’s the Backwards Edition of Works for Me Wednesdays. We get to ask a burning question this week! Mine is about blogging conferences:
The internet has been all abuzz with discussions of upcoming blogging conferences. What was once a rare and unlikely event has become commonplace.
There are conventions and conferences to suit every type of blogger’s needs.
I’ve been blogging for well over 3 years now. And frankly, that shocks me because I’m notorious at stopping and starting creative projects. I have no less than 4 scrapbooks at various stages of disarray in the bottom of my closet. And the laundry room that I set out to make more festive has been half-finished for 10 years now.
But blogging seems to have stuck. And I always feel that I have room for improvement. Improvement in the creative process, and not just in my excessive use of commas. And the business end of blogging, which I fell into by chance, FASCINATES ME.
Enter the blogging conferences.
But which one to choose? Some of the upcoming 2010 conferences that I know of are:
- BlissDom – Nashville, TN February 4-6
- Mom 2.0 Summit – Houston, TX February 18-20
- BlogHer – New York City August 5-7
- She Speaks – Concord, NC July 30-August 1
- Blogalicious – Miami, FL October 8-10
I’m certain that there are more that I’ve missed.
The only conference that I’ve ever attended was She Speaks two years ago. I was overwhelmed by the women that I met, and all that I learned that weekend.
I would love to attend a conference devoted to bloggers this year. Because I have a burning desire to get away from this insane asylum so that I can have ADULT CONVERSATION learn more about my craft. Really.
If you have attended any of these conferences, which one would you recommend and why?
Also, are you currently planning on attending one this year?
