Well, it’s official! A few minutes ago I purchased tickets to my first–ever blog conference. To be honest, I’m a little nervous, but I’m also ridiculously excited. Over the past several years of blogging, I‘ve watched countless others have a blast at blog conferences. I’m so glad I bit the bullet and made the commitment to attend.
So, if you didn’t know, tickets for the SNAP! Conference went on sale this morning. The 2013 conference is going to be Thursday, April 18 – Saturday, April 20. It’s going to be in Salt Lake City, Utah, which I am unbelievably excited about. First, I’ve never been to Utah and second, I’ve never been that far West. I’m not 100% sure about what happens at these conferences. If you have questions, I’m not the person to ask unless you wait until April 21, 2013. Then I should be able to answer all your questions.
Thanks to the amazingness of social media I’ve already found out that several of my favorite bloggers will be attending. Honestly, that’s probably the thing I’m looking forward to the most. There are so many people I want to meet! I can’t wait to put a voice and personality to all these wonderful folks.
It’s still undecided, but I’m also hoping to squeeze in two more blog conferences next year. The first is Haven, which I believe takes place toward the end of June in Atlanta, Georgia.
The second is EVO, which happens about mid-July in Park City, Utah.
(Yes, I am aware it says, “women in social media,” but I was assured by several bloggers that men are in attendance.)
The only other conference I wanted to attend was ALT Design Summit, but I clearly missed the ticket sales. From what I understand they sold out within an hour. Crazy!
So let’s dish. Who’s going to a blog conference in 2013? Which one(s) are you going to? What conferences have you been to? Which is your favorite? Inquiring minds want to know! Let me know in the comments below.
Have an amazing Tuesday, everyone!
