If you’re a blogger who’s serious about advancing your craft, who’s interested in networking and being part of the greater community of bloggers, then you should definitely be going to conferences. There are blogger conferences for every niche of the internet. I’ve been to more than a few in my time, and there’s one that I really make an effort to make it to every year. That would be Blogging While Brown.

What I love about Blogging While Brown is the camaraderie and the community. So many of us came up alongside each other and we hardly ever get to be in the same room together. So many of us are at varying stages of being a blogger, and have much to learn from each other. And despite the disparity of the topics we blog about, we bond over our shared experiences. To me, Blogging While Brown has the feel of a family reunion. And I can’t wait to be reunited on June 1!  I’m speaking on an awesome panel presented by BlogHer! Some of my best friends in the blogosphere will be there! AND I’m hosting the Saturday night afterparty!

Wanna come with me? No…seriously. Do you?

I'd love to go to this conference. Maybe next year. Too bad I didn't get a ticket this year because it's in my hometown.
