I am very excited about this conference and was one of the first people to snatch up an early bird ticket! First off, it’s the first of it’s kind here in Canada and much of what I know about blogging I learned through trial and error….although I didn’t crash completely, I must admit I had some great guidance from services like hostiserver, who were able to maintain my blog for me so there really was no need to worry about what was going on in the back end of the business. If my blog were to collapse, they would be there and it would be fixed in a matter of minutes, so all of my loyal followers could still keep on track with me. You can even read a guide here. But for me, this is a great opportunity to learn how it’s really done!

I also love supporting other bloggers, whether it be those that are just starting out or those that I can happen to learn a thing or two from. I am also proud to say that many of the Organizers & Speakers at the event are wonderful friends of mine and are truly inspiring women!

My friend Jessica Desjardins from Beautezine is speaking at the conference about the Business of Blogging and my other friend Stacey Brennan, well-known YouTube Personality will be speaking about Multimedia and How to Make the Most of Your Photos & Videos. Other topics focus on SEO, Building & Pitching a Media Kit, Events, The PR Perspective and Getting Published. Click here to see the full 2-agenda!

Sponsors of the event are brands I have grown to love during my short time blogging and include Almay, Benefit & Pure & Simple. Smart Set and Tria will also be there as well as the PR firm Charming Media.

The event didn’t plan itself. It took a lot of hard work, long hours & dedication. I want to applaud the organizing efforts of all those involved on the committee but want to personally shout out blogger friends Elaine, Deanne, Nicole & Anjali and Anum for balancing their jobs and blogs while planning what is sure to be such an incredible event. If you haven’t checked out their sites, you totally should!

Oh and did I mention that the keynote speakers are Fashion icon and host of Bell Media’s Fashion Television Channel Jeanne Beker and Elaine Lui, founder of Lainey Gossip and host of The Social!
