I’m Heading To #BlissdomCanada For My First Blogging Conference!

I’ve decided to take the Canadian Dad show on the road this October, where I will be attending my very first Blogging Conference. That conference is called Blissdom Canada and I couldn’t be more excited!

I didn’t know what to expect when I started blogging. It looked like a great way to keep a lasting record of my trials and tribulations in raising kids but it has provided my with so much more!

From meeting incredible bloggers and brands to making great friendships with an incredible Dad Blogging community, blogging has given me a new perspective on parenting and a new kind of voice. Anyone who knows me in real life will agree that I have a LOT to say, whether it is useful information or not, lol.

I have no idea what to expect from my trip to Toronto and Blissdom Canada but if my father taught me anything, it was to “Expect The Unexpected“! Although it is traditionally an event filled with female bloggers, with an ever growing Dad Blog population, I feel it’s important to attend and possibly bring a different voice and perspective to the table.

On top of that, I hear Blissdom Canada throws a killer Karaoke Costume Party which is an event that combines my two biggest passions of Dress-Up and Singing!

I’ve just begun my search for a Conference Sponsorship and although it seems like a daunting task, I’m lucky to have met some great people to help along the way! People like Shannon from Shasher’s Life, who freely post helpful tips like this one on the myths of getting a Conference Sponsor

There’s also my friend Jodi from Rants Designs, who specializes in web design and helped me create my very own Media Kit to share with potential sponsors.

I’m still relatively new to the blogging world so I don’t expect to have the brands beating down my door to work with me, but you never know if you don’t try! Either way, I am excited for my first conference experience and can’t wait to see what all the fuss is about!

Have you been and/or are you heading to Blissdom Canada? Feel free to leave any tips for me in the comments section! Especially if you are of the male persuasion and have been before….

    Never been or thought about going until recently. You have me googling “Media Kit”. I don’t know a thing about them. Add yet another thing to my list. Good thing I have you guys to keep it fun (or is that real?).

      It’s very real! You should visit the link to Jodi’s site that I put in the post. She does good work and there are others in the CBN that do media kits as well!

    You won’t regret your decision. I want to the first one in 2010 and loved every minute of it. I missed 2011 as it was 2 weeks before my due date so husband wouldn’t let me leave town. I will be at 2012 as well. Already got hotel and flight booked.

    I wanted to go to Blissdom but didn’t realize you had to think so far ahead. By the time I had heard the date and was contemplating it, Everyone already had their tickets. Planning stuff like this makes me anxious and I can’t make decisions that fast.
