Pro Blogger Events

Are You Visiting Any Pro Blogger Events in 2013?

Being a professional blogger is unmatched among the jobs of the world, allowing you to work from home amid comfort, family and friends, and a real lack of common stress-creating circumstances found in more traditional workplaces.

That’s not to say that hard work isn’t involved, though, and one area where effort is extra important is in staying ahead of your peers and competitors in order to offer readers the kind of content that encourages clicks, subscriptions, and return visitors.

Give yourself an extra weapon as you battle the millions of bloggers vying for the public’s attention by making travel plans that include professional growth – check out one or more of these four pro blogger events in 2013:

1. New Media Expo 2013

Whether you’re well-established online or just starting out, you’ll find the workshops, lectures, educational tracts, and networking opportunities here unbeatable and more than worthwhile, allowing you to leave refreshed, inspired, and with all of the new tools that you’ll need to make 2013 a memorable one for your business!

  • Dominique Jackson January 2, 2013, 5:43 pm

    Nice little list of events here. I need to start searching for some that are local to me so. Making that trip to Vegas would be really nice though!

  • rakesh kumar January 2, 2013, 2:53 pm

    None of them in my country, India and i don’t have enough money to attend any one of them. ;(

  • Dean Saliba December 22, 2012, 3:46 pm

    Sadly there are no events in the UK at all so I won’t be attending any events in 2013. I don’ know why there are no events in the UK as I’m sure there is a demand for them.

  • Koundeenya December 15, 2012, 10:45 am

    We also have WordCamps all over the world. I’m looking forward to attend any events in India. We have WordCamp Bhubaneswar.

  • Justin December 12, 2012, 10:09 pm

    Hi Ann,
    If there is a problogger event on the East Coast I will probably go. I would love to attend one of them in 2013.

    Take Care.

  • Rahul December 12, 2012, 7:53 am

    ohhh very nice news thanks for sharing i will try to visit one event

  • babanature December 12, 2012, 5:29 am

    This is a very good information, i’d love to be there with excitement but my base which is africa is so darn far from the northern part of the world. all the same thanks for the info.

  • Blazing Minds December 12, 2012, 5:08 am

    I’d love to go to one of these blogger events, but my only problem is being that I’m based here in the UK, it would be too expensive for me to get to an event outside of the UK. Now if there were some similar events in the UK then I certainly would be at one 😉

  • Ryan Biddulph December 12, 2012, 1:47 am

    All awesome events in fun spots.

    Lots of travel here, so I would need to see where I am, on the globe, before I commit.

    Thanks Ann!


  • Jacko December 11, 2012, 4:52 pm

    Let’s see, Colorado, Canada, Chicago or Vegas.

    Hmmmmm, how long do I have to decide?

    If it was my choice i would head to Vegas I think its the best event and location but the timing is all wrong for me.

    The other events I don’t think I would attend just because I’m not excited about the locations.

    One of the cool things I have noticed is you can actually buy virtual tickets and attend remotely. That’s a cool way to get the best of both worlds if you’re lazy like me and don’t want to travel.

    One day the #IBCT will grow to a destination type of event. 2013 is just around the corner you know.

    FamousBloggers won the inaugural 2012 #IBCT

  • James December 11, 2012, 4:27 pm

    Thanks for sharing these great networking opportunities Anne. Not sure If I will make any of them yet, but I am definitely going to try to attend some this next year.
