I’m so Excited: Blogger Convention Idea! PLEASE HELP ME!

Okay guys I revealed an idea last night and the more I thought about it the more excited I got, and I really want to make this thing happen.  So incase you didn’t read until the end of yesterday’s post I flirted with the idea of starting a bloggers convention on the east coast. The more I thought about it the more I wanted to do it. So before I can start making any sort of arrangements I need interested people.  If you would be interested at this at all please email me marysaverageadventures@gmail.com or comment on this post. This is something I really want to do and I think it’s a really obtainable sort of thing. There are conventions for everything else in the world, why not blogging? Yes, there are already some, but there aren’t many on this side of the US, or geared to any sort of subject, a lot are specifically for fashion bloggers, beauty bloggers, or mommy bloggers, you get the point, there is no sort of collective one that I could find at least. So why not start one?

First of all I know this is going to take forever to plan so I’m shooting for summer 2015, probably mid June. I’m hoping I can get enough big bloggers to be on like blogger panels to make it a three day event complete with meet and greets.  So I have no idea where I want to have it. When I was looking for conventions to go to I was trying to look in the Philadelphia region so that I could commute daily, but if I’m planning the event, I’m going to have to stay overnight either way, so I’m thinking somewhere else now maybe? I’m not sure. I could really use a helper if there are any volunteers out there! So I know this is not a typical post at all for me, it is literally just a crazy idea I have, but I want to make this crazy idea a reality. So I have some questions to ask.

  1. Is this something people are interested in?
  2. Can you share this with your friends?
  3. Who would you want there?
  4. Where would you want it to be?
  5. Are you interested in helping me out?

Guys I am one hundred percent committed to this if there are people out there willing to go! Like I can’t even tell you how excited I’ve been for something that might not even happen. I know I need to make connections and get the word out there, so if this is something you’re interested in, please SHARE! It can’t happen without the power of the people. I need ideas too.

Please, please, please, get in contact with me if  you have any ideas whatsoever. If you think this is a terrible idea, I also wouldn’t mind hearing that side of things too! I really want this to happen, so please, give me input!

Sorry for a crazy idea post instead of a crazy writing post,, I’ll be back to normal promise. Please help me out, I would be so grateful!

XOXO

Mary.

    This is a great idea! What about NYC? Or Boston?

    I’m from the Buffalo, NY area so no matter where it is it’ll be a trip for me :p

    What you should do is talk to the people who’ve organized similar conventions on the west coast and find out how they did it. That’ll give you a good place to start and give you an idea about what kind of time and energy it takes to plan something like this.

      Those are both great, however very expensive places. I’m also thinking a more centralized location so that more southern states would be able to make it.

      Thank you so much for the support!
      It would be a fantastic idea to talk to those people, and I’m definitely going to try and get in touch with them!

      Thank you so much for your support and ideas! You have no idea how much it means to me!

      I have seen those, and they are either really far away from my hometown, at a bad time, or, they are conferences which I’m not really a fan of. But thank you for the information!

Tell me what you want, what you really really want!
