Five Must-Haves at a Blog Conference
The time has come! Tomorrow, I finally set foot in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina! I can check that off my bucket list. I cannot wait to attend my first blog conference this year (it’s been a minute!) with amazing, talented, and beautiful inspiring bloggers! For new bloggers, these conferences can be a bit overwhelming. You try to get the most out of it, while at the same time trying to do some networking, meeting new faces, and taking in all the knowledge you get from attending one of these but…it’s all worth it…Trust me.
This one is obvious! How would you caption the event or memorable moments without a camera…not too mention…outfit photos! If you are a fashion blogger, no need to worry. There will be plenty of bloggers who willingly will take your outfit photos in exchange of you returning the favor. Plus, you get to have fun while doing so. Another thing you can bring (totally optional) is a smart tablet. For some reason, bloggers love tablets.
I can’t stress this enough..your feet will be hurting. Just throw some Tieks or flat sandals in your purse. If they don’t fit, make them fit. You will thank me later.
Talking from experience, this is a must! Your readers are going to want to know every little detail of the eventful day and especially, what you’re wearing! With that being said, keep that phone or smart tablet of yours fully charged! Plus, you are going to want to check out websites and fact check other bloggers attending the event (Ha!).
Last but not least, make sure you set some goals for yourself. Try to meet as many people as possible, hand your business cards out, ask questions! (there is never a dumb question) and last but not least, be yourself! Have fun, stay in touch, and enjoy yourself!
