It took me 50 years, but I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. (Not a joke, unfortunately.) I want to be a professional blogger. This goofy creation of mine is my favorite thing, and I need to figure out how to monetize it so I can retire in a few years and do this full time. I’m not in any kind of hurry, but it would make me happy to know that it’s an option when the time comes.
Accordingly, I’ve decided to attend a blogging conference and see whether I can get some pointers. I know that this year’s BlogHer conference is actually taking place in New York in July, so that seems like a natural choice. But before I fork over the big bucks, I wanted to ask whether any of you had any suggestions. Do you attend blogging conferences? If so, which ones have you attended? Which are the most worthwhile?
