I Can’t Wait for Blended 2013!!

How fun are blog conferences?!?  I attend my first two blog conferences this past year.  I had a great time, didn’t spend a million dollars, and I made some new friends.  I can’t wait for this year’s conferences!!





The first Blended conference was held in January this year in Phoenix, AZ.  It was a great local conference.  We had about 30 foodies, a yummy dinner, a food photo expert speaking, and TONS of swag.  I’m talking two heavy grocery bags full of product and goodies.  Not only did I meet some new local bloggers (how did I not know some of these ladies before?!?), I started some new brand relationships and got product reviews and giveaways out of the experience.  I was just so excited to be personally invited to a blogging event (like my 3rd in state event ever), and to see that there was a conference I could attend without breaking the bank.


I think may favorite parts of the night had to be getting to see Rachel for the first time in a few months, and meeting Donna & Chad in person.  They were my I-have-to-meet-the-rockstars of the evening.  I mean come on.  When the speaker wants to see Chad’s artificial light set up, you know they’ve got skills.  Not to mention Donna & Chad are super nice and have the cutest little girl.





This year Blended is even bigger, better, and badder than last time.  Blended 2013 is an all day event in Tempe, AZ at the Double Tree by Hilton {with a heated pool!}.  Blended is now open nationally to all bloggers wanting to network and learn more about how to get the most of their blogging experience.  And afterwards we can all go drinking on Mill Ave at my favorite Irish bars.  🙂


This year’s conference is all day on Saturday September 28th from 8am to 5pm.  Your ticket includes all your sessions, learning, materials, lunch, snacks, and SWAG!  Wendy & Wendy are working hard to out do our swag bags from last year.  With Fairytale Brownies {had these last year, amaze-balls!}, Popchips, Rafflecopter and others sponsoring I’m excited to see what they get their hands on for us!  I’m a swag slut.  🙂

I’m super excited for the sessions and speakers too.  Kimberly from A Night Owl, Christine from Cook the Story {we’ll finally get to meet!}, and Cristi from Love From the Oven are just a few of the bloggers sharing their expertise with us at Blended.  We’re going to be learning about creating a solid business foundation, Pinterest, Instagram, Google+, WordPress, and lots of other blogging type things.  And there will be sponsor tables!  I love sponsor tables and getting to know brands face to face.

I’m can’t wait for Blended 2013, and I hop I’ll see you there too!  You can register for conference on the Blended website.  Be sure to keep up on all the Blended news and updates through Blended’s Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, and newsletter.

I’m a Blended Conference Ambassador.  I was provided a discounted ticket for my promotion.

    Thanks for the info! I am in Vegas so not too far. I checked out the details and it looks interesting but the price was a little steep for me. If it was lower, I would REALLY consider going!
