There are just over three weeks left before BlogStock (4th – 6th September 2015). When I went with Wriggly last year, I had no idea what to expect. I did not know anyone there and I had only started blogging a few months earlier. I learnt a lot there and thoroughly enjoyed it.
“What is BlogStock?” I hear you think.
“A fun packed weekend of learning, experiencing, networking and partying! There are plenty of conferences out there aimed at all different blogging niches but they all take place indoors and keep to the usual “how to” sessions. At BlogStock we like to do things a little differently! We have some of the best bloggers and social media influencers in the world providing workshops, debate sessions and talks on the latest social trends. But what makes us different is we also have workshops and talks on food and nutrition, on psychology and wellbeing, we have yoga sessions and cooking schools, wine tasting and cocktail making! Product experiences and networking events! Not to mention the epic opening and closing parties in the evenings too. We pride ourselves on offering more than just your normal blogging conference. There’s something for everyone!”
With no further ado, here are my 10 reasons why all bloggers should attend BlogStock.
1- It is the World’s Only Blogging Festival
Camping, amazing workshops, talks on blogging, a range of activities, plenty of food, drink and evening entertainment… What more could you wish for?
2- Great Location
BlogStock takes place at the beautiful Aldenham Country Park in Elstree, North London. It is easy to access. There is plenty of room to park and ample space for camping. If camping is not your thing then there are hotels within a 10 minute drive of the venue.
3- Tickets are Pretty Inclusive
Tickets include all sessions, workshops, talks, debates, discussions, hot showers, extra activities and entertainment including opening and closing parties. All you will have to get is your food.
5- Range of Genres
BlogStock is completely different from ‘Mummy Blogger Events’ and we have so much to learn from other niches. Last year, “fashion bloggers taught travel bloggers how to grow their blogs in ways they previous hadn’t thought of. YouTubers taught food bloggers how to make the most of video on their blogs and Pinterest taught twitter influencers how they can grow their following even further.”
6- The Sessions
The variety of sessions is impressive, and the ones I am most looking forward to range from increasing positivity, social media health checks, earning money through blogging, accounting, setting blog goals, launching a business from your blog, blog design, getting over 100, 000 visitors each month, getting noticed as a blogger and DIY professional photography.
7- Families are Welcome
A family ticket includes one blogger ticket as well as a second non-blogger ticket and unlimited children passes.
BlogStock is not just a string of sessions about blogging. There is a morning yoga session, a pizza making class, a photography assignment in the form of a photo walk with advice about aperture, shutter speed and composition. There will also be an opportunity to see up-close wild animals like meerkats and chameleons.
9- The Food
Wood Fired Pizzas, burgers, fish and vegetarian options, Thai Buffet, Danish food. I kid you not; all these food options will be available at BlogStock.
10- Brew School
Now that is exactly the incentive I needed to get Hubby to come with the kids for the weekend! There will be mini-brew demonstrations, taster sessions and a chance to be quizzed on your brewing skills. As for me, I am looking forward to the 1953 chrome Airstream Caravan serving nice drinks and classy cocktails all weekend.
