Recently, I participated in my second blog conference. What made this one unique is that it was online. The Online Blog Conference was a 3 day long conference that took place on my computer, my tablet and my phone.
I signed up for this conference for the following reasons:
- no travel expenses
- no hotel expenses
- fits with my time schedule
- great guest speakers
- presentations are online so I can print out what I learn
- I could have my dog with me (ok, not a reason, but he was with me at times)
The fun actually started last month when the online Facebook group was created. There were activities and contests and through our interaction over the last month, I have made some great connections with new blog friends and still chat and visit several daily. Blog meetups also took place and the one that I am going to is coming up next week.
At this online conference there were discussions and presentations on many topics including:
- blogger platforms
- social media
- link parties & blog hops
- balancing blogging and family
- blog design
- working with sponsors
The bottom line is that this conference was so informative that I am still digesting it all. The cost for this conference was less than the cost of a week worth of Starbucks and was so worth it!
