I thought I’d take a little bit of time out to share the great time I had in Colorado attending the Savvy Blogging Summit.
The location? Was amazing. I’d never been to Colorado, so you can imagine my delight waking up to this stunning view every day.
The sessions were geared to bloggers who have turned what they do into full-fledged businesses: SEO, Accounting, working with PR, branding, and more. For me the best part was getting to meet and hang out with many fantastic bloggers.
Here I am (right) with Angela from Frugal Living NW.
And I also got to meet Andrea from Savings Lifestyle.
The PNW region was WELL represented:
As professional as we all are, yes, there may have been a little silliness involved.
Is attending a blog conference right for me?
If you’ve never attended a conference like this, you might want to consider doing so! I think it might be worth considering if:
- You are feeling isolated and want the opportunity to meet like-minded bloggers.
- You are interested in growing your blog’s traffic and/or income.
- You treat your blog as a business, and not just a hobby.
- You’re wondering about trends in blogging and how you might take your blog to the next level.

If you have any questions on attending a blog conference, feel free to ask and I’ll do my best to answer. As a reference point, I also have attended BlogHer (’10 in NYC). I would also love to hear from you if you’ve attended a conference yourself and what you might have gotten out of it.
