What to Take to a Blog Conference: #NaBloPoMo

What to Take to a Blog Conference
If you are going to a blog conference this year, there are a few things that you should take.
1. Comfortable shoes
2. A tablet or some sort of device
3. Business cards and a card holder
4. A sweater. Seriously, I was freezing last year at the Bloggy Conference.
5. A camera
6. A purse or a backpack
7. A pen – for taking notes the old-fashioned way.
8. Sunglasses and a hat for outside events.
9. I take lipstick or lipbalm everywhere. You never know when you’ll need it.
10. Also, a hairbrush. It’s not on here but you might need one anyway.

  1. Lip gloss/lipstick is a must have no matter where you’re going!

    1. I totally agree! 🙂 I feel sooo lost without it.

      1. I currently have 16 in my purse, all relatively the same shade. Hello, my name is Hollie, and I’m addicted to lipgloss.

      2. Yes. We could start a support group. Lipstick/Lipgloss addicts named Hollie/Holley. 🙂 I bet we could get at least 10 people. lol

      3. working on a post that you’ll appreciate. i can’t tell you yet. #topsecret. lol have to get lipstick on first.

      4. I’ll keep me eye out for this top secret post! How mysterious lol.

      5. it’s kinda funny. #nospoilers. 🙂

  2. Thanks for the tips! I have yet to get to a conference. 🙁 one of these days I will go.

    1. You’re welcome! Keep the faith! You’ll make it to one. Maybe next year?!

  3. Great list – didn’t you post one before… and that was before you had attended the conference, right? So how does this list differ, now that you’ve attended one, to the other list? I see you added the sweater! 🙂

    1. I added a sweater. Maybe comfy shoes & lipgloss are new. Sunglasses & a hat are new. The rest might leftover & still necessary. I should add a big smile & outgoing personality. 🙂 🙂

      1. I always love those lists we make before… and then after! I like to see what was totally not needed vs. what should have been brought! My first camping list was like that! LOL

    1. There are three that I know of. BlogHer is in New York City in July. Type A Parent is in Atlanta in October. (They also have mini-conferences in New York and North Carolina.) Bloggy Conference is in Sandusky, Ohio at Cedar Point.

      1. Ahhhh thank you!

      2. You’re welome! 🙂

  4. So funny. Why is it ALWAYS freezing at conferences?

    1. I’m not sure exactly. lol 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

  5. I tagged you in the Love-Hate challenge….you’ll note lip gloss made my “love” list!

    1. That sounds like fun. Thanks! 🙂 It will also make my love list. 🙂

      1. We need to compare, you’ll have to let me know what your favorite kind is, I’m always on the lookout for a good lip-gloss!

  6. I need to get to a blogging conference. I’ve been blogging 5 years and I still haven’t made it to one!
