This weekend we celebrated our 10th event and it was the best yet!!
BlogOnX started on Saturday evening with the BlogOnX launch carnival, sponsored by the fantastic Paladone. With complimentary party food, cocktails and games, it got the conference off to a great start. Partying under the stars thanks to the glorious Manchester bank holiday weather was certainly an experience. Between the party on the roof and Pimms beside the canal the next day this has to make it one of the most decadent BlogOn Conferences ever.
The next day we kicked off with an amazing schedule featuring sessions on hot topics such as Building your Fandom with Emma Conway, the beast that is GDPR with Giles Harris and how to get paid for your work with Lee Furness & Sophie Mei Lan Hale as well as lots of other fabulous workshops to suit all blog niches. We know a lot of attendees were nervous but we hope you had a good time and realised that other bloggers are just human beings like you, and actually a really nice bunch of folks.
Of course, BlogOnX is not just about the sessions. A huge thank you to our brands that were in attendance this weekend for all your hard work, to Hillgate Cakery for the epic VARTA cake and to everyone that took part in the raffle which raises money for the BlogOn Community fund, which has helped out some very deserving causes in its first year.
We were very happy to welcome Co-Op to BlogOn for the first time and they were very lovely to work with. They treated everyone to wine, chocolate and flowers in the amazing Coronation street goody bags.
The speakers gave up their time to travel from all over the country and share their knowledge – hopefully, you took home skills and hints that will make your life easier, give you a renewed sense of excitement or help you make changes to your blogging to take it where you want to go.
Now we want you to do what you do best; Blog or Vlog.
Please link up your blogs and vlogs of the day in the linky below. We want to know your feedback, what you liked, what you disliked and of course, what was in your epic goodybag!!
