Note to self: Don’t join a linkup then move to self hosted two days later – My fellow bloggers is there any chance you could comment on this post on my new site? – BlogOn – Introduce yourself – and Why I go to blogging conferences/
In a couple of weeks (16th Sept), I’m off to a blogging conference run by the team at BlogOn (BlogOnuk.com) – it’s only down the road at Hotel Football, in Old Trafford, in Manchester – about three miles from my house.
I’d heard about these conferences which have been held twice a year since 2013 – everyone said how great it was. I went to one of their Conferences in May; it was really well run and very useful. I learnt so much that day, especially about Pinterest It was lovely to meet people I’ve known on Twitter/ Instagram face to face too.
My highlight of the conference was hearing Jason Todd from the Art of Brilliance talking about positive psychology in life and work. For example:
‘Every day is a Special Pants Day – Life’s too short. QUIT waiting for happiness’
- Twitter: @beingbrilliant Jason: @jasontoddtalks
This led me to attend their first Festival of Happiness in at Victoria Warehouse in Manchester in June. They’re holding another Festival in Birmingham on 29 June 2019 – info. I thoroughly recommend following them on twitter and attending their conferences. Such a wonderful, optimistic and positive day.
BlogOn – Sunday 16th September 2018 – 10-5pm, Hotel Football Manchester
I hear there are some tickets left – Ticket Information
It’s not just for parent bloggers either. The goody bag was massive with loads of useful things.
Whether you’re a new blogger or been writing for years – There’s so much to gain from attending a blogging conference:
- update your knowledge – technical topics, photography.
- no need to be shy we are a friendly bunch…
- opportunity to talk to relevant brands
- and you never know what it might lead to…
