Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know Blogalicious Weekend is the event to attend this year. We’ve emailed and shared updates about our wonderful sponsors, speakers, and workshops. You know who’ll be there, what they’re bringing and that the opportunity for you to network is there. By now, you also know that we’re returning to Miami and will make the Hilton Miami Downtown our home for that weekend.
In today’s Round Up, we’re not rehashing what you already know. Instead, we’re providing you with a checklist to ensure that you get the fullness of the Blogalicious experience. We want you to learn and have fun. If you do these things now, you’ll spend more time doing just that come October 5-8!
9 THINGS TO DO BEFORE BLOGALICIOUS WEEKEND
Have you booked your hotel room?
We’re staying at the Hilton Miami Downtown this year. While our $199/night room special has passed, we hope there are still some rooms available for you. See what the hotel has to offer if you’re still in need of a room. And if that doesn’t work in your favor, learn how you can find a roommate from the Blogalicious community below.
Have you found a roommate?
We have a long Roommate thread in our exclusive Facebook group for attendees in need of roommates. (You can’t miss the photo!) Take a look at the comments and see who still needs a roommate or two. This will be a fun way to get to know new people, reconnect with your old friends and save money on your room.
Have you joined the Social Suite?
As mentioned above, we have an exclusive group for past and present conference attendees called the Blogalicious Social Suite. We share tips, resources, ideas and new ways of doing the same old thing. We’re big on engaging and cultivating community, so if you’re on Facebook (we know you are) and you’re coming to #Blogalicious9, join our group here. You won’t be disappointed.
Have you signed up for our newsletter?
If you’re on our email list, your inbox is constantly on #fleek! That’s because we want to keep you informed on what’s happening with us, in the community and for the conference. Besides, our theme is Tribe Up, so it’s only right that we have your back by sending you all our plans! Now’s a great time to plan your introductions to our wonderful sponsors like Kia, Change the Cycle, and Jack Daniel’s in case you’d like to chat with their representatives. Join the Blogalicious newsletter today.
Have you registered for #Blogalicious9?
None of the above would be possible if you aren’t registered for the conference! Without having registered, you won’t get a nice name tag, have a reserved #SeatAtTheTable, or have the opportunity to connect with coaches and mentors like Stacey Ferguson, Andrea Corson, Emilie Aries and Ana Flores! Blogalicious 9 is somewhere you want to be and the best part is that we really want you there! Register now while we still have tickets left.
Have you built your schedule?
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could select which workshops and sessions you want to attend now? With Sched, that’s possible! Take 5 minutes to look at our extensive agenda and plug in where you want to be each day of Blogalicious Weekend. While you have the option to print out your schedule, Sched makes it easy with its digital capabilities. You can also download the app, with the conference logo, to your phone’s home screen for easy access. (Our Tech Advisor, Terrance Gaines, can help you do this! Tag him in the Social Suite.) Build your schedule here.
Have you joined Mighty Networks?
Every year we look for the best ways to keep in contact with you while on Conference grounds. Enter Mighty Networks, a new community dedicated to community builders, entrepreneurs, marketers, and leaders building the most compelling and successful new digital brands. You guys have been sending invites left and right via Mighty Networks and it’s been cool to watch. If you haven’t created your free profile and downloaded the app, do it here.
Have you accepted special invitations?
Remember we invited you to join our newsletter above? Well, the key to getting access to exclusive events and activations is by being on our list. So far we’ve sent invitations on behalf of Jack Daniel’s, Stop Stalling, American Heart Association, and more. Get in there, fam! We wouldn’t want you to miss out.
Have you followed us on social media?
Following us on social media is a MUST! Next week, our Ambassadors, along with our super-creative attendees, will share the Blogalicious Experience in dynamic ways – through live video, tweets, stories, blog posts and more. We’re on social media everywhere @BeBlogalicious and are using hashtag #Blogalicious9 to record what it means to Tribe Up!
Easy, right? We can’t wait to see you there! Let us know if you have any questions.
