My Favorite Blogging Conference

This is my favorite blogging conference, because it is so different from any others. Because it's small, I didn't feel overwhelmed or awkward attending for the first time. The sessions were exactly what I needed, and the implementation time at the end of each one definitely makes Focused unique. I can put into practice what I've just learned instead of trying to remember it all when I get home. The networking times were instrumental in allowing bloggers a time to meet each other, brainstorm together, and interact with each of the sponsors in attendance. I highly recommend Focused for new and experienced bloggers!

Hands-down my favorite conference!

The Focused Blogging Conference is THE event for bloggers who truly want to create something meaningful for their audience AND provide for their family. Because of the small size and the caring and positive attitude of the event team, Focused is also a tremendous opportunity to make lasting connections with brands and other bloggers. Out of the half a dozen conferences I've been to, Focused was hands-down my favorite and the one that had the biggest impact on my blogging career.

Atmosphere of community and education

The atmosphere at Focused is one of community and education. I left feeling that I had just turned a very important corner in my blogging business.

Planning on Attending EVERY Year!

Being a new blogger, it was important to me to feel welcomed. Focused went above and beyond to not only help me navigate to the right workshops but provided unlimited access to all of the mentors. No question was too small and the instructions were always clear. The sponsors were regular people who seemed very happy to be there. The location was easy to find. The menu and dining experience was lovely. I plan on attending all Focused Blogging Conferences in the future because they don't teach the exact same classes every year. The fact that their online community is more than willing to help me at any time is also a huge plus. I made so many friends that it's hard not to love it just for that perk alone.

It was friendly and personable

The intimate number of attendees was fantastic as it removed any intimidation, fear of asking questions, being overwhelmed, being overlooked and the like. It was friendly, personable, easy to network and everyone was quick to share their resources and knowledge.

It's not about beating the next blogger…

I've attended other blogging conferences and few have focused on giving inexperienced bloggers personal access to the knowledge and skill sets of some of the more experienced bloggers. These mentors not only have been in the trenches where I'm at, but they also are willing to share what has and hasn't worked for them. It's not about trying to beat the next blogger, but how to grow so we all are successful.

HIGHLY recommended!

I have never been to a blogging conference where the egos and cliches were left at the door. Everyone came together to really help each other. So many friendships were cemented and new ones made. Dollie and her team did a fantastic job with this conference. I HIGHLY recommend it!!
