When people ask me what I do and I tell them that I’m a blogger, I’m usually met with a variation of the same lackluster response, “Oh.” I love being a blogger, but in a world full of professionals, I often feel overlooked and underestimated. But then I went to Bloggy Con!
Bloggy Con was like Disney World for me- it was magical! I was in a place with others who just got it. They understood the insatiable need to express themselves through words. It was such a wonderful experience to meet so many others who love blogging as much as I do. I firmly believe that learning from others’ experience is the best way to gain new skills.
Here are a couple of points from the sessions I attended:
“As a blogger, you are an influencer”-Rachel Brenke
“Perfection is the enemy to productivity. Stop waiting to be perfect to begin”- Elayna Fernandez
“Knowing your online visitor allows you to grow your audience, unlock revenue, and boost productivity”-Kristi Allen
“Culture is a living and breathing aspect of your blog. Brands NEED your credibility and reach to influence their buyers”-Tasha Branham
I left Bloggy Con inspired! I was inspired to do more, to learn more, and to take new adventures in blogging. I can’t wait to showcase what I’ve learned!
