Blogalicious 2016 is coming up in Atlanta this weekend, and I couldn’t be more excited. I attended the inaugural Blogalicious Weekend back in 2009, and it was the first social media conference that I ever attended. This year, I’ll be speaking! It’s a full-circle moment for me and a great reminder of how much I’ve learned and grown, both personally and professionally, in the past 7 years.

I love the community and camaraderie of Blogalicious. I’ve connected with some of my social media heroes (and sheroes) at this conference in previous years. I’ve also grown my community of mentors, and my circle of friends! I always walk away from Blogalicious Weekend feeling more energized and inspired.

I can’t wait to reconnect with the community, and to share some tips and best practices for  collaborations between bloggers, brands and agencies.

It’s not too late to register! Check out the full conference agenda and grab your tickets for #Blogalicious8.
