Hi! I’m Grace Duffy from…
This week’s VlogMom topic comes from the lovely Hillary Chybinski from My Scraps. She asks what are my three best tips for attending a blog conference, which is perfect since she and I just returned from Type-A Parent Conference ’12 in Charlotte, North Carolina.
For seasoned bloggers, “conference season” has been in FULL SWING for many weeks now. There are so many conference and at least, one to suit just about every niche, location, interest, level of experience… More than you probably ever imagined.
I love getting the “face time” with my friends. I love the one-on-one conversations, the laughs, and delightful discoveries that only come from being together in one place like a blog conference. I wish I could attend every single one. Unfortunately, going to so many blog conferences can get very expensive, very quickly…
I’ve found that sharing hotel rooms with other bloggers cuts that cost nearly in half and makes for a more pleasant conference experience. It’s a lot easier to walk into a room full of “strangers” (a.k.a people who you adore online, but have yet to meet in person) when you know at least one other person there. Wouldn’t you agree?
But how to make sure that you find the right roommate? Or that things will go smoothly once you arrive?
Here are my three top tips for making it a great experience all around (4:52):
