Our Story

Focused Blogging Conference is the dream conference of founder, Dollie Freeman, who desired to find a conference that offered time to get a head start on the to-do list from the learning, as a way to begin implementing the next step of success necessary for growth on her individual blog. Not finding what she was looking for, within the expected price of a mentoring type conference, she set out to make it happen.

She hosted her first Focused Blogging Conference in Richmond, Virginia in 2015 where learning and implementing collided.

Dollie has created Focused Blogging Conference to be a community of motivated bloggers who are ready to take charge of their tasks to see growth in strategic places that will make all the difference in their efforts.


Dollie has been blogging professionally since 2012 and has always had the heart of mentoring others. In mid-2013 Dollie came up with the idea of putting together a conference that will help others gain focus in their goals and time enough to implement them. Her personal blog is Joy in the Home.<a href=”” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener noreferrer”>Joy in the Home</a>
