Online Blog Conference: The Blog Workshop #TBW

Have you ever attended an online blog conference? How about an offline one? I’m fairly new to the Blog Conference world, even though I’ve been blogging for almost 10 years. I tell others the reasons are a lack of money or babysitting. While those are factors, the real reason is my anxiety. I get so anxious from new situations, especially if I’m not with my close family members. Add travel in a new place to that equation and it’s very stressful for me.

An Online Blog Conference

My first conference was an online one that I was able to do from my own home. This was perfect for me as I was comfortable and therefore was able to relax and absorb the information. I also didn’t have travel costs or as many problems with child care.

Last year I went to She’s Connected, but only for the day as I wasn’t able to stay overnight since I was still nursing my toddler. Although a hotel stay seemed stressful, I think trying to get there and back in one day was more stressful. I also attend the P&G Mom event (not a conference) which required and overnight stay in a beautiful hotel and travel costs. I was stressed and anxious but I had a blast.

Do You Want to Attend a Blog Conference?

Whatever your reason for not attending one or very many (travel, childcare, personal, cost) you might want to consider an online conference.

This year I will be attending The Blog Workshop which is an online blog conference held May 17-19, 2013. (affiliate links)

How Does an Online Blog Conference Work?

For a fee of only $175 (10% of which is donated), you have access to 3 days/6 sessions plus resource lists, giveaways, conference workbook and a The Blog Workshop shirt!  The conference really only takes up a few hours of your time each of those three days so you will still have time left over for your other commitments or networking. If you need help, there is an available payment plan or student/teacher discount.

To access the sessions you will login with a special code to watch videos of the speakers. You will be able to replay the sessions at a later time to watch them again.

There is also an opportunity for US residents to apply for a scholarship or a grant. More details on those are available on the website.

Will I See You There?

Will you be attending The Blog Workshop? If so I’ll “see” you there. If you haven’t signed up yet, do so before May 10! (affiliate link)

*Disclosure: In exchange for promoting the conference, I have received free admission to the conference for myself. However I was intending to save up the money to attend anyways so I was very happy to have the opportunity to share this with you. This post contains affiliate links.

    This sounds interesting and convenient since it's really hard for me to travel away from the hubby and kids during conferences. Thanks for sharing!

    Looks great! I've done a few webinars on blogging (from ProBlogger and others) and they are always helpful, so this would be fun too. Childcare might still be helpful; my daughters aren't good about leaving me alone to listen at the computer! :) Thanks for sharing.

    An online conference? Sounds great! I'm going to two in June (one in Manchester, one in London) so may get my fill of conferences, but will definitely check this out. Thanks for the information!
