I attended GO BLOG SOCIAL April 4 – 5 and I have to say the ladies who organized this conference need to be recognized for pulling together a very professional and valuable event. I came home from the first day and I very excitedly couldn’t stop telling my husband everything about my day and how I believe that I will be taking my blog to the next level. The speakers were interesting and shared information about their personal stories that I loved hearing. I really enjoyed Kelly Snyder from Kansas City Mamas and Erin Souder from House of Earnest. First of all Kelly is a great speaker in front of a large group, but when I first started blogging I felt limited on what I could do without a media kit and Kelly’s feedback to us was that if we want to be professional and we have a following that reads our blog every day, that we are important and that a media kit can help us take blogging to the next level. Erin with House of Earnest is a DIY (Do It Yourself) blogger, which I don’t consider myself a DIY blogger, so I didn’t think I would get that much out of her presentation, but the information she shared was her behind the scenes of how she makes great posts and pictures. I made a list of what I need to do to from her presentation. Even though I primarily blog on fashion, I also like to post about cooking and products I like and these are definitely DIY projects because I am doing all of these things myself. From coming up with the blog post idea, to creating the content, to staging the project, and taking my own pictures. I want to thank all of the speakers for sharing with us. The other major benefit of GO BLOG SOCIAL were the connections I made with other women that all are bloggers. Everyone I spoke with was so genuinely nice and everyone has great information to share and oddly enough we all seem to share some of the same challenges.
I have new knowledge from the GO BLOG SOCIAL conference that will help me take my blog to the next level. Starting with me getting motivated to meet with my brother-in-law to teach me how to do more with Photoshop as you will see in the first picture.
