Last September I had the opportunity to attend the ShesConnected Conference in Toronto. This was my first foray into the world of blog conferences and I took away some pretty powerful information and realizations!
The realization that I didn’t fit into a niche and that I was fine with it was probably one of the largest a-ha moments. Attending the conference, the seminars, the break-out sessions and meeting all of the brands and attendees has benefited me in various ways.
I’ve streamlined my brand, I’ve begun offering review and giveaways (hey why not share fabulous products with my readers when I can!) and I’ve become even more public about my alcoholism and sobriety by speaking and writing openly.
Before attending ShesConnected I didn’t work with brands, with the contacts I made there I’ve been able to nurture these relationship and offer fantastic giveaways for my readers. The relationships I made with other bloggers since meeting at the conference have been a gift. I’ve established real friendships, partnerships and I feel blessed by these wonderful people being in my life. If I hadn’t gone to the conference these connections may not have been formed.
By spreading my wings and attending ShesConnected I took a chance, it was nerve wracking at times but has allowed me to grown my blog tremendously which in turn allows me to get my message across to more people. No matter what I thought I knew or didn’t know the experience has proven to me that conferences are a valuable experience for relationships, learning and skill building.
One of my favorite benefits of being an ambassador is having my personal Bobble-Head….yes I’m easy to please.
