I woke up to some interesting news! 🙂 I was nominated for NEPA BlogCon’s Blog of the Year!
NEPA BlogCon had their first annual Blogging Conference last year. I was lucky enough to attend thanks to Leslie Stewart (One of the Fearsome Foursome) and her NEPA Blog Con tickets giveaway! If you recall, I had to draw a cat (below).
I had a blast. I met a lot of great Bloggers and learned so much. One of the segments taught me a lot about SEO. I think that was one that I took away the most from. Another taught a lot about sprucing up your about me pages, how to style your blog to engage a reader, and your online presence. As someone who wasn’t *new* to the blogosphere, some of what I learned wasn’t anything but blogger common sense. However, for people who didn’t own a blog but was looking to, this conference will teach you all you need from the start.
That wasn’t even the half of it. I met so many amazing people and networked with so many. It was nice to have a place to talk about Blogging in person because many, who I attempt to talk to it about, just don’t understand. Even Andrew loses interest. It’s nice to have so much in common with people who understand you and I think that alone is what is going to make me go back.
Because of NEPA BlogCon, my other blog was featured on a local television show, PA LIVE!, thanks to the pleasure of meeting the masterminds behind NEPA Blogs.
We are coming up on the 2nd annual NEPA BlogCon. In all honesty, I wasn’t *planning* to go. Simply because I didn’t have the funds. However, since I am being nominated, I would love to go again and continue my streak of attending NEPA BlogCon every year (one year down, many more to go).
