Three years ago I won a full conference pass to attend my first Blog Conference. It was the Type A Conference in Asheville, NC and it was one of the best times I've ever had. Since then I've registered every year. Unfortunately I wasn't able to attend last year due to my daughter being on a heart monitor. But instead of selling my ticket or getting a refund I gave it to one of my readers in a giveaway. It was my way of Paying it Forward and sure enough the blogger that won had never been and loved it as much as I had.
I met some amazing bloggers that I now talk to almost daily. We've roomed together at other conferences and had grand reunions. This year all my blogging buddies are coming to Atlanta! I'm still planning on rooming with my buds so I don't have to fight traffic in the mornings and party a little harder at night. 😉
Buy conferences are not just a place to mer awesome bloggers. I went to some of the best classes at Type A. Some included SEO, Social Media Consulting and working with brands. I learned a lot and it really jump started my blogging to a different level. I've heard many other bloggers say the same thing as well.
So if you haven't been to the Type A Conference I highly suggest registering this year. It's going to be a blast! Read all about the Type A Conference here.
