Happy Friday Nuffnangers!
Before we head into the Bank Holiday weekend, we wanted to write about an upcoming event in the blogging world that we are very excited about and that is held in just three weeks. Have you heard about Blogtacular before?
Just today, the duo behind the creative conference unveiled the final names in their impressive line-up of speakers, and we thought this was a great occasion to give them a shout-out and encourage the bloggers of our community to attend the event, held in London on Saturday June 13th.
So, what to expect at Blogtacular?
I personally attended the first edition last May and wrote about how much I loved it, and how it helped me to grow my personal blog, so let me tell you a little more:
“I came away with a head full of strategic ideas, and a renewed drive and inspiration to dramatically improve my blog. The day was gone in a heartbeat of course, but those hours listening intently to the expert speakers sharing years of knowledge, tips and best practices are still vivid. There was a definite buzz in the air and I think for many bloggers and creatives there (including me), it felt like a turning point.”
The day will be packed full of goodness with a photowalk, opening keynote by Grace Bonney from Design*Sponge, a variety of talks and workshops to teach you everything you need to know on finding your voice, growing your audience, turning your blog into a business, pitching yourself, organising community and collaborative projects, cultivating your creativity and inspiration, photography, styling, blog design and code, and mastering Instagram.
Like last year, the conference will be held at the Royal Institution (Mayfair, London) from 8.30am to 6pm and it will bring together hundreds of creatives, bloggers, and industry professionals to share inspiration, learnings and best practices so don’t miss out and grab one of the last few tickets.
You can take a peek at the showreel from last year, read the coverage from attendees, and listen to Joy Cho from Oh Joy delivering her keynote, thanks to Mailchimp. There are also virtual tickets available to catch up with last year’s conference, although I’d really recommend coming to Blogtacular in person so you can network with the bloggers, creatives and sponsors there including Thomson, West Elm, Pinterest, Annie Sloan, Cricut and Mollie Makes.
We will be there ourselves as Nuffnang has been invited to an industry panel, so feel free to come along and quiz Christian Torres, Head of Brand & Creative at Thomson, Colleen Reid, Senior Outreach and Engagement Manager at DigitasLBi, and I on every question that’s on your mind about how to work together with brands and agencies successfully.
