I’m attending the 4th Annual Lifestyle Blogger Conference March 27 – 29th in Los Angeles. I want my blog to go BIG in 2014 and am looking at the business of blogging with new eyes. I have the content, the interesting viewpoint and am now focusing generating real income from my lifestyle blog. HUGE thanks to #LALLBLOG14 and Lizza Monet Morales aka xoxolizza @twitter & xoxolizza @Instagram for their sponsorship of my attendance!!!!!
All of the panels will teach you how to be a better blogging businessperson. From the legal rights and wrongs, to making sure you stay on the right side of the IRS to being an ethical blogger. I plan to take copious notes, ask questions and LISTEN. As a professional in any capacity you can always find something new to learn to make you better at your job. It’s especially true with blogging since the field is crowded!
I’m especially excited to attend the panels because of my plans to increase my Geek Projects. I need sponsors to make them successful and to be able to fully focus on my two newest ideas to start filming. I recommend anyone who wants to take advantage of the wealth of knowledge by the great panelists to attend this conference. See the schedule of the event below and buy tickets at eventbrite.
