In 2005, I was a corporate lawyer who was giving my heart and soul to a company I wasn’t sure cared about my well-being as a person. It was always about the work – staying late, skipping meals, climbing the ladder. I got tired of that and wanted to have more, be more, and do more with my life.
Outside of my corporate job, I was a blogger. Myself, along with some other like-minded women who were in a similar situation as me, created Blogalicious in 2009 as a space to create a community offline, that we had found with our readers online.
Back then, I couldn’t have imagined that we’d still be at this nine years later! Since we got our start, we’ve become the premier conference celebrating the diversity of women in social media. We’ve worked with a stellar family of brands such as KIA, McDonald’s, Toyota, Coca-Cola, and Dove who have trusted us to tell their stories through unforgettable campaigns and initiatives with the help of our community.
From the legendary GAIN party in 2012 to the private movie screening of Beyond the Lights with Gina Prince-Bythewood in 2014, we’ve done and seen it all as a conference. We’ve had so much fun, learning, laughing, and growing together.
Now, however, things are changing. As an industry, blogging has evolved. Social media has changed. Trends have come and gone, and there’s a new one starting every day! With our 10th year quickly approaching, I felt like it was time for us to evolve along with this industry we love so much.
What we’re anticipating is a series of multi-city events that bring you all the good vibes and great content that you’re used to, but for less time and in a more intimate setting. Imagine all of the deep-diving we do on the conference VIP Day, but more times throughout the year. I will also continue to serve you by bringing brands, influencers, and entrepreneurs together in a purposeful and profitable way, as a coach and consultant.
There’s so much more in store for us in this next chapter of the Blogalicious story. It is my hope that you’ll stay on the journey with us, pen in hand, ready to take your starring role. Learn more about ‘What’s Next?’
