Bloggy Conference 2014 will be at Cedar Point in September. Cedar Point is basically in my back yard. It will take me 15 minutes to get there. Maybe 20 minutes with Cedar Point traffic.
I’m a little hesitant about going. There might be the possibility of over-extending myself if I attend. Should I take a risk and attend anyway?
If it’s really as close as you say, then yes. Go. Even if you don’t necessarily do the same kind of blogging that BC focuses on, bloggers are bloggers. You could learn some new stuff. Unless you have other obligations like keeping your job or paying attention to friends and relatives. Priorities.
I have the kids that weekend. However, I think there will be tickets given out for Cedar Point. So the time away from the kids would be limited.
What can it hurt? Can you leave early if it gets too overwhelming? Or at least go ride a roller coaster? 😀
I’m sure that I could leave if necessary. The roller coasters would give me more of a panic attack. But the kids love the rides. Especially the oldest. She looks so happy on roller coasters. (I never told them until recently that I was scared of heights.) 🙂
I wouldn’t NOT GO just because you might get over-extended. You have choices even when you’re there. But if you don’t go at all, you’ll never know what possibilities exist. You might encounter the one idea or the one person that gives you just the spark you’re looking for to take your blog to the next level. It’s so close! 🙂
Good points! I am definitely leaning towards going. 🙂 I mean, when is it ever going to be so close again?! I thought I would have to drive to Cleveland, Columbus or out of state.
I’ve heard that it’s going to be awesome! 😉
It sounds like fun. I’m going to read more of the details. Haven’t read through the itinerary if there is one. 🙂 Thanks for visiting!
I voted for you to go, but to be honest I haven’t been to a blogging conference yet myself. Although I’ve been blogging for about 2 1/2 years, I’ve only begun to treat it as more than a hobby in the last few months. The conference might be overwhelming, but I bet it would be so full of good information that it would be worthwhile.
If I was that close, I would so go!! I am dying to go to a blogging conference.
It looks like a lot of people have positive things to say about blogging conferences. 🙂 Thanks for visiting & commenting!
It looks like a fab conference! I’m debating on going!! I would love to as I’ve never been to a US conference before! Decisions Decisions!
I voted yes but also have never been to a blogging conference, but one on your back doorstep? Too much sounding like serendipity for me to have voted otherwise. Plus I wanna hear all about it afterwards Holly 🙂
Sometimes there’s nothing like going to a group gathering to get you fired up. I’ve never been to a blogging conference, mind you, and don’t really know what they’re about. But you never know! You might truly enjoy yourself. I say go.
I vote YES! You will meet so many new people and make connections for your blog plus you’ll be inspired. If it’s meant to be, things will line up for you to go…so I hope things line up and you get a chance to experience it! I’m going to my first conference in September and I don’t know anyone going!
I hope so too!! 🙂 Thanks for voting & the good vibes! 🙂
I’d think of it as a face to face networking opportunity. If this is your main “job” it could turn out to be a great time investment. Have you ever gone to this type of conference before? Perhaps that is why you are apprehensive. =) Either way, things will be just fine.
I worry that i won’t be as charming or likeable in person as on the blog. Silliness, right? Hoping nerves stay in check. Thanks 🙂
