Well folks, I have finally taken the leap and registered for my very FIRST Blogger Conference! How cool is that? I have always wanted to attend one, but it was always something (cost, location, dates) that prevented me from moving forward, but luckily, I found the SoFabU On the Road! The event will be held Saturday, May 30, 2015 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas and will allow myself and others to network and have some great learning opportunities. I am super excited to learn all that I can to make my blog the best it can be. Based on the agenda, I know that this will be a great experience and with national sponsors Johnny RocketsMüllerKraft and iBlog the event is sure to be a winner. After this, I can see many more blogger events and conferences in my future. 
Take a look at what we will experience:

What We Will Learn:
How to Use Social Media to Drive Blog Traffic. Attendees will learn the secrets of using social media platforms {Facebook, twitter, google plus, pinterest, and instagram} to build an audience and drive traffic to their site.  This is important for me, especially because I am wanting to devote even more time to build my brand.
