As a Western Canadian blogger, I sometimes feel like I miss out on a lot of great events that seem to inevitably be held in the Toronto area. As much as I would love to attend all of them, the planning and expense involved make attending a Toronto event a rare experience for me. That’s why I was so excited last year when BlogWest, the premiere Western Canada blogging conference, was announced.
Of course I had to attend, and I was honoured to have the chance to speak on the monetization panel at the conference as well. BlogWest 2012 was educational, informative and a great way to connect with so many incredible Western Canadian bloggers. So when the BlogWest 2013 Ambassador Program was announced, I couldn’t wait to apply. I was so excited when I was chosen as the very first BlogWest 2013 Conference Ambassador.
As a BlogWest 2013 Ambassador, I’ll be receiving a full conference pass, a travel stipend and lots of other great perks in exchange for helping to promote and support BlogWest 2013. And, even better, I also get the chance to offer one lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader their own full conference pass, a $199 value!
One of the best things about the BlogWest 2013 Conference, besides the fact that it gives Western Canadian bloggers an accessible venue to learn and connect, is that it isn’t a female-focused conference. Whether you’re a food, tech or fashion blogger, there are sessions on topics ranging from blog design to personal branding to help you make the most of your site. Last year I attended an incredible session on writing headlines that made a huge difference in the way I create my blog post titles and I was told that newer bloggers found the WordPress learning sessions incredibly helpful.
BlogWest 2013 will be held on March 7-9 in Edmonton, Alberta. To enter to win the BlogWest 2013 full conference pass worth $199, just leave a blog comment about whether or not you attended BlogWest 2012 last year. And if you’re a blogger in Western Canada, this is one conference you won’t want to miss. The venue will be announced later this week with tickets going on sale shortly thereafter, so save the date and get ready to take your blog to the next level at BlogWest 2013!
