Bloggers Gone Coastal, BRANDCATION 2012!!

I am attending Bloggers Gone Coastal, Brandcation 2012 in Pensacola Beach, FL!!!!

What is Brandcation, Bloggers Gone Coastal you might ask?

Brandcation events are gatherings of 30-35 bloggers from across North America.  They are intimate gatherings with a focus on creating real relationships based upon conversations and lasting memories.  Brand sponsors get involved by providing activities, lodging, items and services as the backdrop.  While the bloggers network and connect, they interact with, experience, discuss and promote the brands that help make the event possible.

You will find no classes at Brandcation events, but rather real life conversation in an environment conducive with learning and growing. Contrary to its name, Brandcation isn’t just about the brands, but about creating a lasting memory that brings home what you do every day online with people you interact with. However, we work closely with brands to help make this an amazing event with their support.

I am very excited to attend this event in May.  I have blogged for purposes of keeping my family and friends informed of our activities and sharing craft projects that I have done.  I have not been consistent about my blogging, nor have I  been as committed as I want to be. I believe that attending this even will help  me to network with an amazing group of women from all different levels of the blogoshpere. I am certain this event will empower me to blog more and eventually monetize the blog.

Trisha at MomDot is the brains and the beauty behind the entire event.  She is a power blogger and has some of the most humorous articles you will ever read.  Catherine at Food Family Finds has an amazing blog filled with recipes, reviews and stories of her family life.   Lynsey at Moscato Mom started attending this event two years ago and has built a blog that is interesting, funny and a great reference point for using a cake pop machine for more than just making cake pops. These fantastic women just scratch the surface of the whom I will meet and interact with over the weekend.

I am excited to begin a new path in blogging.  I look forward to sharing with you the pictures and fun time that I had at Bloggers Gone Coastal, Brandcation.
