One of my blogging goals for 2017 is to attend a blogging conference . To be honest I didn’t think I was going to complete this goal . Thankfully Faye from Glossytots had to same goal and we are going to embrace the scary world of blogging conference together .
On the surface I may seem a pretty confident person . Which I normally am in situations I am comfortable in , but doing something out of my comfort zone I turn into a nervous wreck . I always worry if I’m doing the right thing and always feel really self conscious.
I haven’t just booked to do one blogging conference I have booked to go to two ! . I have booked to go to Blogon twice . Ahhh I’m so scared and nervous . So If you see me up the corner like a dithering wreck please come and rescue me.
Since I have known I was attending Blogon I have made more of an effort with the blogging community . Joining In with conversations on Facebook groups and generally being more active . So commenting on other posts and also joining linkys . In the hope that someone may recognise me and take me under their wing . (Gosh I sound so pathetic !) . Thankfully I do know some people who are going and I’m excited to meet them . Especially the lovely people from an Instagram pod I’m apart of.
What I’m hoping to take away from Blogon
Now I don’t mean actual things like products or goodie bags . Although I have been told they are amazing . I mean like what am I hoping to learn or achieve.
- I am really wanting to understand Pinterest in all its forms . Or at least learn a little bit more about it . So I’m hoping to go along to the Pinterest talk.
- More confidence with what I’m doing . Most of the time I’m just winging it and hoping I do something right . I suppose having a blog that has lasted a year isn’t too bad.
- Speak to other bloggers as they are the only ones who know how flipping hard it is .
- Potentially make some connections with brands that may want to work with me in the future.
Gosh I’m getting nervous just thinking about it I think I need to have a talk with myself . If I wasn’t for the lovely Faye from Glossytots I don’t think I would even be going to a blogging conference .
Wish me luck ! If you have any tips they would be greatly appreciated and like I said earlier if you there and see me in the corner please come and rescue me . I will pay you with cake !Follow me on :
