Reflection of some highlights from the Nuffnang Bloggers Conference that I attended.

Romantic Flair Original

You probably heard me blabbing on last week what a big blogging weekend I had in Line, and you can say that again. This was my first ever blogging conference that I have attended..and it was a learning curve. It was also fun meeting more people that I am in contact with on line, and with whom a closer networking relationship started happening. It is always so amazing to meet someone whom, I have followed their blog  or on other social networks , and actually come face to face.

It was an all day Blogging Conference held at Zinc Federation Square in Melbourne. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I am sure I gained more knowledge to apply in my Blogging journey and am looking forward  to go through the awesome post below by  the speakers who kindly, posted their speech on their blogs. Thank you Nuffnang for organizing this, I felt so special being part of such an amazing event of 300 bloggers getting together on such an occasion.

What did I get out of this at the end of the day?
  1. I felt that I belonged to a community, there is no age, gender, background, knowledge issues. We all had one thing in common we were bloggers. We were all there to improve our blogging journey.
  2. All the above awesome speakers, came from all different backgrounds, education, nationalities, age etc. They were all once very knew to blogging, and all learnt along the way, some have gone through their journey at a faster pace than others.
  3. Blogging at the end of the day, one can get out of it what one put into it like anything else in this world. But also one can blog just purely for his or her enjoyment. We all blog for different reasons.
  4. I have been blogging for just over a year now…and  I can say I am enjoying the ride and meeting awesome people along the way.
Finally I like to thank all the Staff at Nuffnang for this amazing opportunity, and what about the post conference drinks...I wish that I did not have anything on the next day...I would have stayed longer and enjoy the night........!
