SITS is Hosting Bloggy Boot Camp Baltimore

Next weekend I’m headed into the city for a blog conference. You can’t imagine my excitement when I found out SITS was hosting Bloggy Boot Camp right in my own backyard.  On March 6th, 2010 approximately 100 women from all around the blogosphere will converge onto the Inner Harbor and Pier 5 Hotel for a day of work and fun.

Bloggy Boot Camps are one day blog and social media conferences for women. The idea is a more convenient, lower cost, more co-operative experience. These day events are for brand new bloggers or experienced social media mavens- something for everyone. Networking, motivation, education and fun- something for everyone.

I’m attending Bloggy Boot Camp Baltimore 2010. I’m super excited to meet some bloggers that are both local and coming across the states. For the last couple weeks I’ve been able to connect with some of these fine ladies through a forum, twitter and visiting their blogs. I really need to establish a better system for regular blog visits.

I decided to go for a couple reasons

  • I need to do more for ME, I’m just as important as everything and everyone else I make time for in life.
  • I want to take LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too! to great places. I’m not looking to become famous or make millions but I want a voice.
  • There is so much to learn about SEO, Public Relations, the FTC and Social Media. Again, not looking to be a guru I just want to make the right decisions, decisions that will benefit not just us but our readers.
  • It’s only 20 minutes from my house, how in the world could I have let this slip by without the chance to network, engage and interact with a whole NEW group of people. Growing your community can only bring good things!
  • I’m new to SITS but I completely embrace the support and feeling of community they have successfully achieved.  Hundreds of blog writers and owners come together each day to lift each other up; I’m proud to be a teeny tiny part of that!
  • So with 1 week left I have lots of blog hopping to do, getting to know some of the other attendees, trying to remember names, faces, family stories and points of view. I got my business cards, travel coffee mug and lip gloss, I’m ready!
