I’ve mentioned a
thousand couple of times how excited I am about going to Bloggy Bootcamp in Atlanta in October but have I told you that I’m also now registered for my second blog conference?! That’s right! I’m registered for Type-A Parent Conference 2012! The conference isn’t until next June but I got a steal on the ticket thanks to Super-Early Bird pricing! The best part is the location! Just an hour away from the lovely place I call home!
So to get ready for all of the bloggy fun in my future, I thought I would share some of my favorite blog resources. Since I’ve been in the blogging world for 4 years now, I have developed a love for quite a few but I will start with 3 in this post!
1 – The SITS Girls – Seriously, you NEED to be a part of this group. It is a great resource for blogging support and encouragement. One of the many awesome things that they do is the Featured Blogger channel where every day they highlight a different blogger! They share some background information and invite everyone over to your blog for a day to party! It is a great way to discover new bloggers as well as share some comment love! My SITS day was life-changing! They also routinely doing series, like leading a 31 Days to Build A Better Blog group challenge or their new Monthly Photo Challenge, to help each of us become better writers and bloggers. Of course, I can’t leave out Bloggy Bootcamp! And currently, when you like their Facebook page, you get a free copy of their e-book Top 10 Secrets to Blogging Success!
2 – Blog Clarity – I started following Melissa, a fellow NC’er, on her personal blog Adventuroo & completely fell in love (yes I totally have a social media crush!). She started doing weekly posts where she would highlight blog tips and other social media advice before launching Blog Clarity! If you need blogging, writing, or other social media advice, look no further! She hosts a weekly series where bloggers can submit their sites for a Blog Critique (happens on Wednesdays) and she gives you an honest opinion of things that you can do to improve your blog, including design, functionality, and content. You can click here to see mine! She also recently wrapped up a series on Blogger Business Card Design that was extremely helpful as we are in the thick of blog conference season!
These are just 3 of my many favorite resources! There will be more to come! Have you used any of these 3 resources? What sites would you add to the list?
