How do you love Blogalicious? Let us count the ways!


We’re celebrating this 5 year anniversary with some good old fashioned love letters and we would love to hear from you!

Have you made a great brand connection at Blogalicious? We want to hear about it! Collaborated with amazing bloggers you’ve met at the conference? Tell us how! Met life-long friends who are committed to helping you reach your goals? We have too! That’s just a few reasons why we love this community.

#DearBlogalicious is your chance to show the world why Blogalicious is important to us. Whether through blog posts, emails, tweets or Instagram, we’ll be curating your love letters to highlight in a video stream at the conference. Simply use the #DearBlogalicious hashtag or email your posts to:

Videos and photos are welcome, too! In fact, keep an eye out for the #DearBlogalicious Love Letter Photo Booth during the conference where we’ll be sending “sweet nothings” to the amazing community that helps many of us succeed.
