What happens when we are nudged out of our comfort zone? I see OPPORTUNITY and INSPIRATION!!!!!
After my blogging consultation in June with Danyelle Little over at Cubicle Chick, she suggested I try to attend Blogher15 even if just for the day. Our conference call was my wake up call to put the wheels in motion toward defining a niche and the “golden carrot” I never considered myself large enough to attend a blogging conference so I must admit attending any blogging conference was put on the back burner. In June I had a great 2 hour meet up with Janeane Davis over at Janeane’s World and the best advice I walked away with is “don’t compare yourself to others”. This resonated so loud in my head!!!!
After registering for the conference, I realized this is an excellent opportunity for all women(of varying levels) who impact social media in some capacity. I am planning to attend for one day so it is important to make the most of the day. Based on Friday’s schedule, I have outlined the day to attend multiple sessions that will help me build a better brand. I have reviewed the sponsors and plan to network with as many as possible!!!! The prospect of networking with brands and bloggers is going to be an exciting day!!!
Danyelle shared this great article as a must read before attending a conference, Read This Before Attending Next Blogging Conference!!! This put my day in perspective so off I go with a STRATEGY!!!
The ride to NYC should give me plenty of time to make notes, plan and strategize!!!!
