Blogger Networking

    

   I have read about bloggers attending blogger conferences and sharing the wonderful time they have had meeting other bloggers, learning more about blogging etc. I am yet to have such an experience.  In the meantime I have been learning a lot about freelance writing and blogging by attending webinars. This is quite new to me. I am glad that I now have an internet service that can give me such an opportunity. I like the idea that one can join in and share views and ask the hosts questions. Some of the more recent webinars that I have joined were those given by Jon Morrow, Sophie Lizard, Laura Leigh Clarke, Carol Tice and Sharon Baker. I found them to be informative and inspirational.




  Have you ever attended a conference for bloggers or a webinar?  If so, what was the experience like?

I have not attended a blogging conference yet...lots of Personal Trainer and Fitness ones. I really hope that I will attend one someday!

It would definitely be great for me to attend one someday Dawn!

Sandee said...

No I haven't attended either of these type of things. Hubby has attended a webinar, but not me.

Have a terrific day. ☺

I've been to 3 conferences- 2 of them, 2x. I LOVE THEM!! It's so great to actually meet the people you've been commenting with, and the networking, the learning, the swag!!! http://bohemianbabushka.blogspot.com/2013/05/en-resumen-hispz13-whats-why-will-bb-go.html

Here from the Thumpin Thursday hop and I hope you get to attend a conference soon; BB highly recommends them.

I have never attended a webinar. I could never bring myself to spend that kind of time...How was it for you? Did you learn a lot?

T.A. Woods said...

I've done some online web conferences and seminars, definitely with Jon Morrow and Sophia Lizard. I try to do as many free things/low costs things as possible to teach me something new. However, I haven't done any IRL conferences for blogging and social media.

fun friday hop

Dee @ A Lapin Life said...

I have not but plan to attend one.

Judy Haughton-James said...

The webinars were good Self Sagacity. They usually last under 2 hours and you get to learn a lot of new things about writing and blogging. That reminds me that I have one to listen to today. I missed out on some of it when it went live.

Judy Haughton-James said...

That would be great Dee. I look forward to hearing what your experience was like once you have attended one.

Judy Haughton-James said...

It is certainly very helpful tam.

Judy Haughton-James said...

It is great that you have attended some conferences and found them great Bohemian Babushka. Thanks for sharing this information.

Judy Haughton-James said...

It is good to be able to attend these webinars for free and learn a lot T.A. Woods. Have a great Friday.

I have attended such events for work, but never for blogging. I'd love to go to a big one like BlogHer. :)

It's fun that you're participating online. I hope you get lots of great tips and networking galore from it!

Theresa said...

I have not attended a conference but think it would be fun. I haven't met any blogger friends in person either, but would really love to some day!

The webinars sound very informative! I am glad you are finding them useful Judy!

Judy Haughton-James said...

I have heard of BlogHer and it certainly seems as if it would be great to attend one of their conferences Rosey. I have been getting some useful tips from the webinars. This afternoon I will listen to the replay of one that I missed some parts of a few days ago.

Judy Haughton-James said...

I have also not met any bloggers in person Theresa. It is so wonderful that still they are the ones who share advice and give us encouragement! My blogger friends are definitely the persons that I can count on! Have a great weekend.

Jennifer - The Deliberate Mom said...

I would love to attend a blogging conference. It would be a dream to meet some of the dear friends I've met over the internet.

Wishing you a lovely day.
xoxo

Judy Haughton-James said...

You are so right Jennifer. It would definitely be great to meet all the wonderful persons whom we have linked up with via blogging. Have a great weekend.

Judy, I wanted to go to Allume this year, but did not get to go. I would love to go blogher one year. I did some work for DaVinci and The BlogWorkshop promoting her summer online conference. Thanks for visiting Thursday's Favorite Thing Hop. Nice connecting with you again.
