Yesterday I attended my first blogging conference. I have participated in several blogger workshops over the years but never a day “Conference”. We All Grow MIAMI took place at the fabulous Little River Studios in Miami. (A bloggers dream= Instagram photos for days) The unpredictable South Florida weather tried to rain on our parade but after an hour the sun came out and blessed us with a typical humid Saturday in Miami. Breakfast was sponsored by Honey Bunches of Oats and it was delicioso!
After breakfast we listened to the #girlboss panel. It was cool until the second session was in Spanish only. My friends said they were use to it and it happens all the time in Miami. I was like huhh! The best part was the mentoring sessions. We actually got to pick a pros brain. Before we knew it lunch was served. Walt Disney World Parks sponsored lunch. The food was pretty good for a buffet and the champagne kept flowing.
Let me tell you it was quite an experience. First, blogging is a lot harder than you think. It takes a lot to be consistent and create meaningful content. If you really want to monetize your blog you have to connect, collaborate and attract a brand that reflect your values. It was great to see so many ladies that are killing it in the blog industry. I met so many famous Instagram fashion bloggers and watched how influential they were. If you are trying to get in the blog world I definitely recommend attending a blogger conference. I also highly recommend that you go with a friend! It’s the only way to GROW!
