Blogging Conferences for Women – Event Schedule for 2012

Blog Conferences

Who else is excited for some cool blogging events this year??

Last week I shared my exciting news – That I’m going to be speaking at Reviewer’s Retreat 2012 – in North Carolina this June. I am super excited about it! There are so many great friends that I’ve made online – and now I’ll get to meet some of them in real life. Plus, it’s going to be fun having the chance to share some of the tips I’ve learned along the way during one of the sessions.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

I’m also planning to attend a couple more events this year – The BIG one – BlogHer in New York City this August, and then Bloggy Boot Camp in Las Vegas in October. I was soooo bummed to find out that Bloggy Boot Camp is coming to my area – Seattle – but it’s the same darn weekend that I’ll be speaking at Reviewer’s Retreat! So instead, we’ll be heading down to Vegas – which will be a great time, since we’ve never been there.

Which Event will You Attend this year?

If you want to take your blog to the next level, attending an event or two is a great way to do so. Not only will you learn SO much, but you’ll also get to meet and connect with some amazing new people. I’m in the process of finding a sponsor or two to partner with on these trips – {if you’re reading, and think we’d be a good fit to work together – I’d love to hear from you! Email Meagan at} – but I’m willing to fund them myself if needed, since I know that it’ll be worth it. I’ve heard so many incredible stories from other bloggers, and can’t wait to jump into some fun events too! If you want to start planning for YOUR events this year, Jennifer James put together an awesome list over on Mom Blog Magazine –

And The Blog Stylist has a similar list, with some great contact info for each conference. This list includes a lot of fashion and beauty style conferences too, which would be a ton of fun –

If you’ll be attending any of the events I’m going to – I’d LOVE to connect with you while we’re there! And if you have some great tips to share for preparing for a conference, please leave some comments – I’m excited to attend my first events, but not totally sure what to expect. What events are YOU hoping to attend this year?



  1. Going to reviewer’s retreat, but they’re having a Bloggy Boot Camp in St. Louis, which is only about a five-hour drive from me. Hmmmmm….

  2. I’ll be at Reviewers Retreat too. This will be my first conference. I’m excited! Even though the class your a speaking at is for undergraduates does that mean the seasoned bloggers shouldn’t attend? I’d really like to hear what you have to share.

      You can attend any sessions that you would like! They’re set up so that some of them focus more on the needs of newer bloggers – But everyone can choose which sessions that they’d like to attend :)

  3. I attended Bloggy Boot Camp in St. Louis, it was great! :) I will be at BBSummit in Chicago in July, and then Brandcation which is kind of like a vacation more than a blogging conference lol that one is in October. OH and Show Me the Blog, in October in St. Louis – I’m speaking there.
