For the past few years I have attended a smaller (and close to home) blogging conference. The focus on this conference is definitely to support each other as bloggers and network together as we learn about how to make our sites stronger. While there have been brands on site, networking with them hasn’t been the focus (and that’s ok). What I have learned from the networking with others bloggers has been invaluable. It helped me take one more step up in my blogging journey. Now it’s time to take it to the Next Level!
Because bloggers sit behind a screen, it can be hard for brands to feel connected to a blogger as a an “er”- person not just a blog. Collective Bias and SoFabCon provide a wonderful opportunity to show these brands that I am indeed a real person! I personally know that I have influence and provide a wealth of information to my audience (that’s why we do it right?!). But being face to face with someone- you can hear the passion in their voice and see the drive in their eyes. Recently I have begun reach out more to brands on my own, but know that the SoFabCon experience will give me the knowledge and confidence to do even more! I want to connect with brands, bloggers and ultimately my audience on a real level.
Not only would I gain so much from networking with other bloggers and with brands- but with Collective Bias too! I have been wanting to get more involved in the Collective Bias community- and this would be the perfect opportunity to dive right in- feet first! Leveraging the knowledge of some many industry leaders is a no brainer to get me moving forward on my “Mission”.
