Dear Creatives, I have to share I found out I won tickets to a blogging conference! I am super excited & a bit nervous at the same time. There is so much to do & think of as it is only a few weeks away! It’s not like a planned trip where you know you are going & make arrangements way out in advance. I have started a to do list & before you know it I will be making a packing list & boarding a plane to Blogalicious 2012! (which makes the Mr. crazy as he will not fly)
The conference tickets are for Blogilious in Las Vegas! I live 3, 4 & 5 hours away from the major airports or I could fly out local & change planes in LA at over $600. NOT!! I found a so, so cheap flight out of Oakland, CA. Yippee again!! Under $150. First thing I did was make sure I could secure the best deal! & book a near by hotel as the conference hotel was sold out. (hope I’m not boring you! ) Now I am hoping to reach out for some sponsorship to help with the hotel costs. At least to off set all the expenses. In comes bravery.
Have you ever gotten sponsorship or partial sponsorship to a conference? I’d love to know!
Between Sammie’s broken wrist, the dr. appointments & heat that has been in our area I am a little nervous about being ready. Having posts ready to go, things needed purchased, getting through my to do list….I am over joyed!
I am super excited & will try to meet the Founder/CEO of One2One Network Barbara Jones when I am there as she happens to be speaking at the conference. One2One Network picked another person & me randomly from entries on their blog to win this conference! I have also connected with a few others about meeting with them. I will need to set more time aside to do all the things to be ready. But, I will do my best to keep to the routine here! Honestly, I can’t wait to see all I learn & come back with things to share with you! & if you know of any good things to do in Las Vegas please let me know it’s my first time there & I will have an extra two half days at the beginning & end of the trip!
Have you been to a blogging conference? If so which one (s) ?
Note if you leave me a comment please let me know if Comment Luv is working correctly. I installed it, but no one has commented since I did! I was hoping that this will inspire visitors to comment more & build more community here, as others can see what your current posts are & visit you too! I have often found using it on other sites easy & love that it shares your post topics. If you find it’s not working please email me (email location on top of sidebar) or on about page. Happy Monday!!
