My Day @ Bloggy Boot Camp

This past Saturday, I woke up bright and early and headed east to Philadelphia to attend my first blog conference. I sucked up my fear of walking into a room and not knowing ANYONE and I spent the day listening, learning, and absorbing tons of information to help me improve my writing, my blog, and my business.

Bloggy Boot Camp is run by The SITS Girls: Tiffany Romero and Francesca Banducci. They are two witty, sharp, and savvy women who are a wealth of knowledge about blogging, business, and social media. They also lined up a stellar group of speakers. I took 15 pages of notes from the 6 sessions:
  • Top 10 Tips for Blogging Success - Laurie Turk from Tip Junkie
  • Video Unveiled: Getting View on You Tube - Colleen Padilla from ClassyMommy
  • Expanding Your Platform Beyond Your Blog - Audrey McClellan from Mom Generations
  • Business of Blogging Workshop run by Laurie Turk, Tiffany Romero, Allison Tallamantez, and Danielle Liss.
  • SEO: 10 Things to Make Google Love Your Blog - Dali Burgado from Secrets to Web Success
  • Proven Methods to Grow Your Site and Increase Your Influence - Sharon Rowley from Mom of 6
I also met a lot of other bloggers, traded tons of business cards, ate a delicious lunch provided by Kings Hawaiian, and received an unexpected, but sweet swag bag provided by all of the conference sponsors: Mirassou WineryWaterPik, Happy Family Organic SuperFoods, and

On the way home, my head was spinning with ideas and flashbacks from the day. Honestly, I think my head exploded somewhere along the PA Turnpike. I arrived home exhausted, but energized about all of the possibilities for Family Balance Sheet.
