Our mentors (speakers) come alongside you and help you implement on your blog.


We really focus on brainstorming, because we know that working together brings lots of growth.


Community is a really big deal for us, which is why we encourage networking a lot at our event.

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, and looks forward to building this unique conference with a personal touch to details for years to come.

Dollie has created Focused Blogging Conference to be a community of bloggers and online influencers who are ready to take charge of their focus to 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.Joy in the Home
