And we know how much I love to go to blogging conferences (aka “School for Bloggers“)!!!
Some good friends of mine kicked off a great social media conference in Ottawa in 2011 called Social Capital Conference. Naturally, I attended it and I’m happy to see it still running and growing in numbers each year.
This new conference is called BConnected and its focus is specifically on parent bloggers. As far as I’m aware, these are the only two blogging-related conferences held in Ottawa.
For BConnected, April 12-13, 2014 will represent its inaugural year and here’s a blurb from the site (bolding is my own):
“The BConnected Conference is Canada’s first social media and networking conference targeting mom and dad bloggers; however it is open to any bloggers looking to enhance their social media and blogging skills. Attendees will also be able to connect with industry leaders and leading brands that are geared towards families. You’ll also be able to obtain hands-on and useful information to enhance your social media skills. Finally, bloggers will have the opportunity to connect with fellow bloggers to further their networking communities!”
I would add that even if you’re not (yet) a blogger, but have an interest in starting, that this conference will help kickstart your journey in a very positive way! Here’s what other bloggers are saying about BConnected:
- Puzzling Posts
- Kickass Living
- A Motherhood Experience
- Canadian Blog House
- Creative Cyncronicity
- 1 Heart, 1 Family
- Life on Manitoulin
- Mom vs the Boys
Oh, and one last thing … I’m going to be the MC for this event!!
I am absolutely thrilled (and do I admit, a little bit nervous?) to be invited to take on this role. More than anything though, I am excited to be able to welcome my blogging community to a fun, productive, and high-energy weekend in our Nation’s Capital! The organizers have been working really hard to make this conference absolutely amazing (you can check out the program here) … I hope I will get to see you there!
p.s. Those bloggers’ posts in the bullets above? If you visit them, you’ll see that they are holding a contest to WIN a 2-DAY PASS to the BConnected Conference. So — go! Enter!
