This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BlogHer. All opinions are 100% mine.
This year, I’m (kind of) simplifying my New Year’s Resolutions into the following phrase – “I want to become healthier, wealthier, and wiser.” (I’ll go into more detail about this in an upcoming post.)
Part of how I’m planning to become wiser this year (and probably wealthier, too) is by investing in blog-related education. Recently, I heard about the BlogHer17 conference (and proceeded to excitedly read through all the details in one sitting.) The BlogHer conference has been held in some amazing cities, but never in the South – until now!
On June 22-24 2017, the BlogHer conference is going to be held at the Hilton Bonnet Creek in Orlando, FL!
Being that I’m a quasi-Southern girl (even though I’m an Aussie, since living in the States, I’ve only ever lived in the South!) I was pretty stoked to hear this. I was even more stoked because Florida is one of my favorite places on earth (amazing beaches, sunshine, and Disneyworld – what more could you want?)
*Fun fact – my husband and I actually took our final vacation together to Disneyworld before getting pregnant with our little. SO.MUCH.FUN!
When I was in college, and then working full-time, I absolutely loved attending conferences. I would learn so much valuable information, it was a great chance to network with people, and I always left any conference I attended feeling incredibly motivated. I anticipate BlogHer17 to be exactly the same!
There are so many reasons why attending a conference like BlogHer is beneficial to any blogger, but here are the top 5 reasons to attend BlogHer17:
Making Connections – one of the best parts about blogging is the connections you make with people. Usually, these connections are primarily online, but attending the BlogHer conference will give you the chance to network with brands, and build connections in real life.
Get Inspired – BlogHer always has amazing keynote speakers and 2017 is going to be no different.
Learn, Learn, Learn! – (and become wise!) As amazing as blogging is, sometimes you might start to feel like you’re just spinning your wheels. BlogHer will teach you how to “level-up” your blogging game!
Be Moved – By hearing the stories of fellow members of our amazing online blogging community.
Have Fun! – Get ready to learn all day and party all night. (Well, maybe not ALL night. I’d like to catch a few hours of shut-eye, too!) But BlogHer is kinda famous for their after parties! It’s also a great way to connect with fellow bloggers in a less formal setting.
So, who should attend BlogHer17?
Do you consider yourself to be part of the social media and online content creator space? If so, then BlogHer17 is open to you! All levels of bloggers are invited and of course, all gender, ages, ethnicities and interests are encouraged to attend! (Yep, men are welcome, too! In fact, 10-15% of attendees are male.)
And guess what?
BlogHer17 Tickets are available right now at the SUPER-Early Bird Price at only $199 for the Blogger/Influencer Full Pass. Considering that the full price is usually $399, that’s kind of a bargain. (i.e. It’s a mega bargain – 50% off!)
The super early bird price is only available until 12/31 and then it’ll go back up, so if you know you want to attend BlogHer17, then you should jump on it now!
So, are you planning to attend the BlogHer17 conference? If so, let me know!
