I started blogging as a hobby. I still have a full time job, a family and social life. I blog mostly at night or weekends. I mostly blog because I either want to tell people about things or places and I also want to share my journey.
However, even though it is a hobby, I want to be good at it. So for me learning new things and networking is really important. So, when I learned about the Latino Lifestyle Blogger conference, I knew I had to be there.
Unfortunately due to work I was not able to attend the networking cocktail the first day, but I heard comments that it was really good. Not only the food and drinks, but also that it was a great space to get to know other bloggers. You know you need to be social and surround yourself with great people, so you can grow, and opportunities like this are invaluable.
Luckily I was able to attend the other two days full of opportunities for learning. I can tell you that the information provided at the conference was really valuable. The speakers were prepared and they knew their stuff.
The conference took place in a cozy space. It is a one track conference which means that you do not have to choose panels and be sad because you cannot attend something that might be also interesting for you. It is also a great way to network, socialize and learn not only from the speakers but from the questions asked by fellow bloggers.
The food was AWESOME. Good quality food with healthy options. And there was enough food even for seconds.
As I already said, I learned a lot. I am ready to bring my blog to a new level. I know it is going to take a little bit, since I do not have a lot of time, but I will be taking small steps to implement all things I learned.
Here are some great points I have learned:
If you are looking for a great conference to attend next year make sure you mark your calendar for LALLBLOG14 (March 17-29, 2014)
