Thanks, very helpful. 🙂
This is super helpful…thanks so much!
This is so, so helpful! I’ve found that all of the “well-known” blogging/fitness conferences are on the West Coast (Fitbloggin, IDEA World, Beachbody Summit) so I’m happy to hear of some knew ones over on my side of the country 🙂
SoFabU on the Road is bringing hands-on blogger education to 11 cities in 2015 – Los Angeles, Miami, Phoenix, Cincinnati, Seattle, Dallas, NYC, Chicago, Minneapolis, Atlanta, and Bentonville AR. JOIN US!
This March 20 -22 is the 5th annual (and final) Texas Style Council conference; a three day retreat in Texas Hill Country (outside Austin) for female lifestyle and fashion bloggers and small business owners. Keynotes include The Bloggess, TOMS, Hello Giggles, Design for Mankind, and Harkness Hall. Registration includes all meals, camp accommodations, built in networking opportunities, keynote sessions, and customized workshops.
What’s the best way to go about finding the right conference? I’m a beginner looking to grow but I don’t blog about religious content and I need information on everything from design to social media.
Ask other people in your niche. There are many conferences without a religious basis. Actually, very few blogging conferences actually mention religion.

Also, self-advertised as the largest social gathering of travel bloggers, content creators, and writers, TBEX or the Travel Blog Exchange is also sure to be a promising event for those of you who want to mingle with the top crowds of the industry and rub shoulders with the most influential bloggers and socially savvy brands.
