BlogPodium. It’s a Canadian blogger conference that occurs in Toronto for one day only and if you’re a blogger, veteran or new, you MUST attend. Jennifer Flores from “Rambling Renovators” is the lovely organizer who, with a host of other wonderful people, put this whole conference together which was no small feat. Between the venue, the sponsors, the food, the giveaways, the networking, I’m exhausted at thinking how I would tackle this all! Good thing is I don’t have to thanks to that fabulous team!
Why did I love it so much?
Community. Nothing beats getting a big group of people together that talk your talk, are warm, generous, and just plain fun to be around. You won’t have to apologize for talking blog all day long, they love jamming about it as much as you do!
Networking. BlogPodium brings together brands you either work with in some capacity or who you have been DYING to work with! (We’re talking Amazon, IKEA, Home Depot, Delta Faucet, Metrie, you name it!)
Direction. I walked out of that conference feeling energized by the information I learned via the classes I took and by all of the talented speakers we heard from. But more importantly, it helped me focus my goals and my next steps. Where else would I have gotten that direction? That alone was priceless.
Where are the pictures? I took one. That’s how crazy busy I was socializing and learning! But it sums up my feeling of the whole day which was: HOORAY!
