Attending blogger conferences is so important when it comes to monetizing our blogs. As content creators, we get so wrapped up in the process of hammering out and publishing blog posts, we forget there’s much more to it than that. I can’t tell you how many times I sat in front of my computer, staring at a blog post, overly frustrated because the task still felt incomplete! If you’re a content creator and you feel like you can’t connect the dot’s–this one’s for you!
Writing a blog post + publishing blog posts = content creator, right?
Here’s the thing about that formula…it only involves one person. The reality is, we all need something to look forward to! We need takeaways, we need incentives, we need feedback, and we need inspiration! Blogging is supposed to be a shared experience! Content creators, must be able to share real stories! If you are producing content, you must be consuming content and not just readable content!
Many of us feel defeated or burnt out because we can’t seem to step away from the computer. Blogging is about connecting with people, sharing information –valuable information, but also very much about creating an image that is relatable and visible. One way to do that is to attend a blogger conference!

What you can expect to takeaway from a conference.
The point of attending a blogger conference is to align yourself and your business directly with brands you want to work with. Bloggers you may want to collaborate with will be there as well. Each event during the conference will expose you to the level of content you should be working towards. There is so much value packed into every moment of every day that you are bound to have insight for producing and improving your content at the very least!
As far as using the conference to refuel you, there are going to be so many amazing moderators giving up good useful information! You’re going to meet other people that have had the same hang-ups as you and some that are very experienced and monetize their blogs consistently. The idea is to step out in front of the computer, meet some people and make real connections that will push your business to the forefront!
Blogger conferences can get expensive, but think of them as investments. I figure, if it puts me exactly where my business needs to be then it’s worth it. I read so many good things about experiences, the energy factor and how valuable the information is that I am determined to attend at least one year! I’ll be honest, I’ve researched each conference on my own, looked at the highlights from their previous years and I literally cannot wait!
