See how much fun blogging conferences are! These pics are from the Aussie Bloggers Conference (company renamed to Digital Parents after the event). I attended a lot of events and conferences last year, I’m pretty sure almost all of them to be honest (and all out of my own pocket) but this year I promised Steve I would be more selective about what I would attend. The Digital Parents Conference (#DPCON12) will be held in March at The Sebel Albert Park in Melbourne this year and when the tickets were released I snapped one up as quickly as possible. How could I miss out on partying with the people I socialise online with all day?!
Unfortunately my marriage threw a spanner in the works, I can no longer attend as Steve wants to make grand plans for our 5th wedding anniversary (I know, how dare he!) which just so happens to fall on the same weekend. I’m so excited to find out what we’re doing and actually travel away together for a change rather than me just flitting off to blog meets. The plan is for Aidan to hang out with Grandma & Grandpa for the weekend at the beach, yep he’ll have it rough without us.
Sure I’ll miss an opportunity to meet a few more bloggers, a few potential sponsors, learn a few new tricks, drink too much champers that result in late night inappropriate photos on instagram… but alone time with Steve where we’re doing more than just laundry or the dishes is like winning the lottery. So rather than poke around and ask if anyone would like to buy my ticket I thought I’d do something nice and give it away! You don’t need to be an established blogger to attend, maybe you’d just like to learn more about it and be inspired (Jennifer James will be there!), this type of conference is for everyone!
