Bloggy Boot Camp: a great start at conferencing

So, you’ve started your mom blog, your parenting blog, your blog blog (perhaps by reading How to Start a Mom Blog) and you’ve invested some time in Social Media Marketing. You know it takes time, but you also recognize there is so much more you can do with your blog to get it moving along, right? Perhaps it’s time to invest in a conference. Of course, with so many blogging and social media conferences, it’s difficult, even for us seasoned bloggers, to know which is right for you. Look at your schedule and consider your location and then take some time to read up on some of the hottest conferences. If you’re a newbie blogger, or a newbie conferencer, you should definitely set your sites on a Bloggy Boot  Camp.

5 reasons Bloggy Boot Camp is a great first conference

  • Investing in your time. Bloggy Boot Camp is one day long. That’s it. You can go up the night before and/or stay the night of, but if you’re a bit shy to jump-start your experience, this one-day conference will give you an excellent taste of conference-life. And don’t for a second think that 1-day will be a quick peek at a conference. The ladies of BBC are packing in the information in that 1 day.
  • Location, location, location. While there are conferences throughout the United States, Bloggy Boot Camp has scheduled four camps this year, across the country. Which allows you four opportunities to find not just a date that works for you, but a location as well. Close to Philly? Join us here. Just an inexpensive puddle-jumper plane from Vegas, there’s a conference there, too. As well as Dallas and  St. Louis.
  • Networking. Put some social in social media and get out there and meet someone! Bloggy Boot Camp is proud of creating tribes, and they do so with rotating assigned tables, so you’re forced to meet not just the people at your table, but those at all your tables. (And they force you in a nice way. Everyone is there to meet and chat.)
  • A smart, low-priced investment. Bloggy Boot Camp, Philadelphia is only $99, which is, likely, one of the least expensive conferences you’ll find. So you’ll get a great taste of making your blogging into something more for a great value.
  • Energy. Need to be revived? Any conference will do that. But there’s something about the way that Tiffany Romero runs Bloggy Boot Camp that fills the room with amazing energy; energy you’ll take home with you. You might as well mark yourself busy the Sunday after the conference.

You’ll still feel so energetic after Bloggy Boot Camp ends that you’ll find yourself implementing everything you’ve learned, and following up with all your new camp friends.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with
    some pics to drive the message home a little bit,
    but instead of that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read.

    I’ll certainly be back.

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m
    going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      no problem! I’m using WordPress and definitely recommend it. (I’ve worked on MT, Blogger and more…) I think you’ll find the most versatility with WP and the most information to make it unique available online.

      But in addition to being on WordPress, I’m using a rather unpopular Genesis Child theme that I completely renovated to be different from the way it looks on their site. It makes a big difference when you can customize the themes.

      Good luck!

      wow. um. is that a compliment? because… that’s kind of like saying “wow. I always took you to be a jerk but maybe you can be nice sometimes. So I guess I’ll say hello to you again.” Thanks? So honored…

      (And, yes, I do realize this was a spam comment but sometimes I want to be a little sassy.)

    Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to assist with SEO?

    I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords
    but I’m not seeing very good results. If
    you know of any please share. Kudos!
