What is Bloggy Boot Camp (BBC)?

Bloggy Boot Camp is a one day blog and social media conference for women hosted in major cities all around the U.S. In a time when blog conferences are growing more popular, Bloggy Boot Camp remains one of the most convenient, inexpensive and co-operative events around. Everyone, from brand new bloggers to experienced social media mavens, can benefit from this experience.

Does Bloggy Boot Camp involve exercise?

No. Unless you count belly laughs.

Who will be there?

In addition to you, all types of women attend, ranging from brand new bloggers to seasoned pros. We also have been fortunate to host PR representatives, brand managers, and some of the most influential leaders in social media today. Whatever the location, there is always something new to learn and someone fabulous to meet.

Do I have to be a member of SITS or a mommy blogger in order to attend?

No. There are really only three things that we require in order to attend our conference: 1) a willingness to learn, 2) a positive attitude, and 3) an interest in social media. That’s it!

While at Bloggy Boot Camp, I connected with people. I laughed with them. I learned I wasn’t the only mom-writer there who thought it was going to be a waste of time and left totally high on renewed energy and lots of new dreams.

What do I absolutely need to bring? Is my laptop essential?

Plan to pack light. We move around the conference room quite a bit during the day, so a heavy laptop can be overly cumbersome. We recommend that you bring something to take notes with, e.g, an iPad, pen and paper, whatever, as well as your phone so that you can jump on Twitter from time to time.
