Blog Elevated 2014 Recap

All-access, empowering and friendly are some of the ways I describe Blog Elevated Conference. I was at Moody Gardens last weekend with the goal of improving my social media knowledge but I gained so much more. 
I heart Blog Elevated!
Blog Elevated has an all-access feel to it. Speakers, presenters and mentors are all available to answer our questions. I came back home with a lot of information that helped me to better plan for my blog and other writing projects. Just to show you a little of bit of the heart of the founders, I contacted one of them before the conference with a social media related question and she was so kind to give me solid advice. I appreciate their generosity and openness when it comes to information that will help us become better bloggers.

Blog Elevated is Empowering. I appreciate this conference because they empower you with tools that will really help you move forward as a blogger. I met many bloggers who followed the advice from last year and made a lot of progress in their goals. Each year I attend I am challenged to improve. I can honestly say that a lot of the knowledge stretches me to growth, which is a great thing. They also have designated times for "study hall" and let me tell you, I got a lot of work done during those times. I was able to talk to different mentors who gave me some practical advice to improve my social media platforms.

Blog Elevated is a great place to find friends. I met Lisa last year and we became friends. This year I met her sister and we all had a great time as roommates. I also tried to get her mother to adopt me so I can become the third sister in their blog. Blog Elevated is a great place to find friends who understand what bloggers are all about. It is also one of the few places I don't have to apologize about posting on social media and checking it often. I also enjoy talking to people in person and online simultaneously. It can be done!

I am thankful to God, to Blog Elevated and to my family and friends for making my experience so wonderful. I hope that if you can attend Blog Elevated Conference in 2015. When you follow them on Twitter, you can be a part of weekly Twitter Chats where they share wonderful social media information. It's a great learning experience!
