This post is more then overdue, but like they say … ‘Better Late than Never.’
I am excited to announce that I was blessed to be able to attend my very first blogging conference earlier this month. I am a member of an awesome social network called SITS(the Secret is in the Sauce). Their motto is the ‘Secret to Success is Support’ and they are a group of women bloggers who are dedicated to supporting one another by leaving comments. The founders of the group Tiffany and Heather have graciously dedicated their efforts, time and resources into developing this group and offering amazing events throughout the year.
This year their focus on their Bloggy Boot Camps offered in various cities across the nation. Lucky for me their first camp was held right around the corner from where I lived so I jumped at the opportunity to attend.
And I am so glad that I did.
Like it is with the rest of my life since my son was born, I was LATE. I mean almost an hour late to the event. So all the lovely SITS girls attendants were already seated and in full swing of the event. The first speaker was already in full swing and everyone was siting comfy in the conference room taking notes on their computer, note pads or phones.
We all sat, like school girls soaking in the wealth of knowledge that all the ladies provided. I can honestly say, I learned more about blogging and social networking that day then I have over the course of my blogging ‘career.’
The topics were were enriched with were:
Building our Blog Audience
Social Media and Branding
PR Road Map
and All about SEO
There are quite a few tips and tricks that we were introduced to that will help us better spread our message out to our readers and to help builder a bigger readership.
One of the many things I enjoyed about the conference was the table hoping. They had selected different tables for us to all sit at in order to help us network, meet other bloggers and to avoid the common problem of just sticking to one crowd. Doing this helped me to met some very interesting, smart and creative women. I am going to attempt a twitter roll call of all the fascinating bloggers I was blessed to meet.
Attending this conference just let me intrigued and interested to see just what else I can learn to help enhance my blogging experience. Can’t wait for more. And I am so excited that they will be coming back some-what to my area … just one state away. Already checked with the hubby and he is on board and ready to support the trip.
