My recent Emerging Media and Marketing class has influenced me to become even more familiar with social media trends, blogging, and online marketing. Daily research and projects has led me, to learning about new concepts every single day. I decided to attend as much social media and online marketing events and connect with like-minded individuals. Most recently, I attended and cultivated a load of relationships at the "Be Blogalicious Weekend" in Washington DC. Hundreds of bloggers and social media enthusiasts gathered to share tips on successful tactics, meet with brands/or PR agencies, and personal stories.
Founded in 2009, the Blogalicious Weekend conferences are aimed at celebrating the diversity of women of all ethnicities in social media. Over the course of 3 event-filled days, savvy, influential and talented women bloggers will ignite a sense of unity within the multicultural blogging community as well as educate marketers on the importance of our demographic in today’s marketplace, all while networking, building relationships, and promoting inspiration and success for each other.
