Are you still finalizing your blogging conference schedule for 2017-2017? I know I am! I’m so excited to be speaking at ConnectHer17 and also facilitating at ShiftCon2018. Two very different conferences but both with unique learning and networking opportunities for businesses, entrepreneurs, bloggers, and influencers.   ShiftCon is the only eco-wellness influencer conference in the US and after 2016 in New Orleans it is returning to California.

You may be thinking, “But Lisa, I’m not a ‘green’ blogger.  But you maybe more eco-well than you think you are. Do you worry about what your children eat? Do you research what cosmetics you use before you buy them? Do you look at labels before you buy a sunscreen? Are you going gluten free? Are you making changes to your lifestyle for health and wellness and sharing with your readers? Maybe you are great at creating crafts and recycling products and “trash.” Whatever it is that you are doing and sharing may be more eco-friendly than you think. You can learn how to do all those things better – AND -how you can better share them with your audience. Not to mention the chance to learn from other influencers, network and so much more!

ShiftCon 2018 Details

ShiftCon Social Media Conference will be February 1-3, 2018 in Irvine, California at Hotel Irvine. ShiftCon was born, by Leah Segedie of, out of the idea that together we can create a profound impact on the world around us.  I first started working with Leah when it was “BookieWe can literally shift the way we eat, raise our families and our impact on the environment. That shift has begun, and now it’s time to come together and leverage our collective voice. ShiftCon was created to give wellness and eco-friendly influencers a place to network, share ideas, learn from experts, empower one another and organize their efforts into social change.

thrive blogger conference

It’s that time of the year when I start making my travel and conference plans. There are several that I would like to attend and some brand new ones this year that I’m even more excited to share with you! The first new blogger conference for 2015 is Thrive for Bloggers and is being held in The Woodlands, TX.

Here’s what intrigues me about the Thrive Blogger conference:

  • It’s a shorter conference with a party on Friday night and the conference sessions on Sat. You know what that means right?
  • It’s less expensive than some other blogger conferences with a $99.00 ticket price.
  • While I’m an experienced blogger Thrive is offering some sessions that I would really like to learn more about. For example, ever since IZEA made changes to their system I’ve been lost on how best to work within it. IZEA is one of our sessions!
  • Other sessions I’m excited about include Food Staging and Photography and YouTube.  You can find out all the speakers and sessions online and register too.
  • I’m shamelessly stolen this quote from their about page – but of course given proper attribution

Everyone works together as a team to learn how to grow the blogging industry together, and to support each other. When one blogger thrives, all bloggers Thrive!

All the sessions are in one room so I don’t even have to choose. I get to attend them all!

Did I mention it’s right here in the Houston area? I don’t have to spend a fortune to go to this one. Room rates were available at the Hyatt and let me tell you the Hyatt in The Woodlands is absolutely amazing and gorgeous. So grab a roommate and make your reservation.

Did I mention the shopping and dining in The Woodlands? It’s going to be hard for me to get in the car and drive home after the conference because there are so many other fun things to do while there. Hmm, maybe I won’t come straight home!

Limited time Bloggy Conference 2014 $85 registration

bloggy conference

I just returned from the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration (conference) and it was so inspiring to me that the first thing I did (okay well it was the first thing I did as soon as I applied for the opportunity to attend the On the Road events) was start thinking about what other conferences I may be interested in attending. Lo and behold, I open my email that day to see that Bloggy Conference is just $85 to register for a limited time only.

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, which will hopefully help me attend even more informative and inspiring conferences this year.

Really? $85 for registration to Bloggy Conference? That is significantly less than the regular price for that conference and many others. It’s in Ohio so maybe we could even visit with our family and it’s at Cedar Point Amusement Park so if the whole family goes it’s a mini-vacation – well at least for them.

When is Bloggy Conference? September 12 – 14, 2014 

What does the registration of $85 include? It includes  access to all conference sessions, events and meals. All attendees will receive passes to Cedar Point.

So, I would need airfare, rental car and hotel reservations. That gets the thinking/planning process started.

For all my other questions, I visited their helpful FAQ page, the Speakers Page, and the Hotel page.

The agenda looks interesting and informative, as well as provide me with the opportunity to network with hundreds of bloggers while gaining important knowledge about blogging, brands and social media.

What’s next? Making reservations and paying for the trip!

Bloggy Conference 2014!


Are you a brand or business that would like to form a long term relationship with the opportunity for reviews, content, giveaways, marketing campaigns as well as networking and would like to sponsor my trip to Bloggy Conference or any other conferences?  Contact me to find out how we could work together and visit out Campaigns page to see what other brands we have worked with in the past as well as continue to work with.

Are you a blogger who is ready to save some money on your conference registration and spend only $85 for registration to Bloggy Conference? Then get going!

There are many advantages to going to workshops and conferences pertaining to writing, blogging, small business ownership and social media.   Conferences can make you connections, help you with networking efforts, teach you new skills, help you brush up on skills and knowledge you already have and of course there is the fun of the travel!

While not a comprehensive list, here are many of the conferences going on across the country for writers, bloggers, small businesses, women in small business and social media interests.  Feel free to add to the list in your comments.

Note- normally I wouldn’t just do links  like this but would put them inside the content but in this case it may help since there are SO many of them to choose from.
