Come with me to Blogalicious 2015 #BYOE15


Blogalicious is my favorite blogging conference. Come with me to Baltimore September 10 – 12! 

This September 10 – 12, 2015 I will be attending the Blogalicious Conference for the fifth year. This year the conference is happening in our backyard — in Baltimore! At these conferences I have gained a wealth of social media, communication, entrepreneurship and professional guidance and inspiration. I have truly learned more practical tips about blogging and freelance writing at this conference series than any other one I have attended.

The mission of the Blogalicious Conference is for women social media influencers, community leaders, business owners and those interested in upping their communication game to come together and increase their knowledge and opportunities. At the conference you will meet smart people, hear success stories and discover what is working. You will discuss ways to create smarter creative content, impactful web-based marketing, as well as learn about new programs, people, and platforms that engage your audience and build relationships.

Blogalicious has a multicultural mindset and focus that celebrates diversity in the digital space. The goal is for social media enthusiasts from all backgrounds to collaborate, connect and lift each other up. The Blogalicious community also showcases to businesses and brands the diversity of voices in the marketplace.

Bloga Moments

This year there are two ways to engage at Blogalicious. You can, like me, sign up to attend The Blogalicious Weekend 2015 VIP Mastermind Day on Thursday, September 10. This day is designed specifically for entrepreneurs who want advanced-level strategies to revamp their business models with successful growth strategies shared by the best and brightest in our community. The VIP Mastermind experience is limited to only 100 attendees and now just 10 spots remain! Check out the speakers. I am beyond excited to take a whole day to focus on increasing my skills! Blogalicious VIP Mastermind registration also covers your registration for the rest of the regular conference, happening on Friday, September 11 – Saturday, September 12.

You can also sign up to simply attend the regular conference sessions on Friday and Saturday. This route rocks too and will include loads of learning and networking with the Blogalicious community and brand sponsors. In addition to training, I have gained great professional connections at Blogalicous that have turned into paid professional partnerships and ongoing work.

You can drive back home to your DC-area pad or book a room at the conference hotel, the Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, at the special reduced conference rate. Get your room. You can also find a roommate on the Blogalcious Facebook group, which you will be invited to join once you register for the conference. 

Because you are going to register, I know it. Leave a comment below letting me know you will be there so we can meet up!
