If you have been following my Tweets recently, you may have noticed that @CutestKidEver and I are up to something. The two of us have been working on a big project for quite a while now. We figured that it was time to have a blogging conference in the Northeast. Sure, BlogHer is in NYC this year, but typically it moves from place to place. We wanted to offer something that would be easier for people that lived within our region of the country to have a chance at something in driving distance. In addition to this, Christina and I wanted it to be budget friendly for people further away to come.
We have visited a few venues for the event and are pretty close to making a final decision. Things have been hushed to this point because we are still ironing out the details. My question to you this week:
Would you be interested in a blogging conference in July? Let us know things you would like included in a conference.
At this point, we believe we are talking about July 9-11 and it would be in the area close to the Albany Airport in New York State. We are working on a package deal that would include lodging, meals and the conference itself. Transportation would be the only additional item you would need. Many items are in swing in this area during the summer, so you could even make a mini-family vacation to locations like Saratoga, Lake George and beyond! So excited to finally let the cat partially out of the bag. I hope to see you this summer!
Please be sure to check out my mirra products, Cook’s Ham $30 for Easter, and Dove Men+Care giveaways. Stay tuned because more will be coming very soon.
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the MckLinky there if you are participating.
I’d come as long as it was affordable! :) What would I like to see? I honestly do not know as I have not gone to any conferences yet. Sorry to not be more help. :)

I think it’s a great idea!

No, but I am not interested in blogging conferences regardless where they are held, making me the wrong person to ask.

I have no idea what to expect at a conference and I don’t think I’ll be going to one any time soon unless I get a paid job, so I am kinda clueless on this.

Sounds like fun! But since it is so soon I don’t think I could make it. Airfare for a family of 4 is not cheap and I would HAVE to make it a family trip since I am still breastfeeding LOL
Can’t wait to hear the details though! I am dreaming of planning a conference in Nebraska/KS/Missouri area so us midwesterners can go cheaper. I know Blissdom was centrally located, but it was still too far for me :)
I hope am near NY so I can come on your blogging conference but that is impossible to where I am now. Perhaps if free plane ticket. From CA to NY.. :)
Here’s My Aloha Friday entry by the way. Aloha!

I love blogging conferences! I always hear of good ones. .and sadly i cannot make it cause i live in Europe now.. so yeah.. maybe planning a European tour?:)
Sound great I would love to come. Use to live in Upstate and haven’t been back for years.

Have a great Friday!

I’ve never been to a blogging conference. I guess you could say I’m not a real “blogger”. However the people I know that attend conferences seem to really enjoy them. Happy Friday!

That would be close enough to me, but money is tight. If I had a sponsor, I’d so be there.
Visiting from My Kids Are Fun for Aloha Friday!

I’m not going to New York any time soon so I’m also the wrong person to ask. Sorry.

I am not in the area so I can’t go myself. Go for it and hope it is a success!

[…] from The Angel Forever and I have been in cahoots on a project for the last few weeks. We’ve been putting together a networking conference for mom bloggers […]
I, too, haven’t been to a blogging conference and I don’t think it would be appropriate to fly cross country to go to my first one, lol. I live in Oregon. That would be a LONG flight for my first time, ha ha!
I am not sure exactly what this conference is about and who would be there as far as company connections to help enhance my relationships or build new one’s. Blogher is there in Aug and I’m trying to make that one. BUT my finances and family obligations won’t let me make both.
If I make any at all.
Wish it was here in Chicago then I wouldn’t have to leave my family for that long and it won’t cost me as much.

Sounds like a good idea, but I’m not in the area so I wouldn’t be able to make it.
