Why Should You Attend a Blogging Conference?

There’s basically one big reason why you should think about going to a blog conference: networking.

There are also speakers and workshops at conferences, but to be honest, you could probably get the same training through a course.

Blogging conferences expose you to hundreds (maybe thousands) of people who do what you do.

This means you can make some friends, find opportunities to collab, and also pick the brains of people who are on the path you want to be on.

Some conferences even give you opportunities to network with brands – hello sponsorships and affiliate relationships!
