Saint Louis is one of our favorite destinations and with great reason, the people are wonderful and there is so much to see and do!

If you’ve never been to Saint Louis before you are in for a special treat in this one of a kind city.

Here are a few tips to help get your trip to Saint Louis started:

  • The must popular suggestion from our community was, the outdoor cafes on Main Street. The outdoor cafes are about a five minute drive from the hotel and will provide you with several dining options.
  • Another great suggestion was visiting the famous Arch. You can go to St. Louis without seeing this iconic landmark! You’ll take a 630-foot ride to the very top of this monument and experience beautiful views.
  • Looking to unwind a little after a day full of information? Head on over to Washington Avenue in downtown where you will find hottest bars and nightlife. You can also enjoy a show at Westport Plaza’s 42-acre entertainment district.
  • If you want to immerse yourself into the local culture, then make sure to check out Forest Park. Forest Park is one of the largest urban parks in the entire United States and offers walking trails, bike trails and a variety of other attractions.
  • Is retail therapy on your agenda? If so then head on over to Delmar Loop. Delmar Loop is an entertainment district that offers dining, shopping and a Hollywood inspired walk of fame that features from St. Louis.

5 Blog Conferences Misconceptions

Truth Revealed! 5 Most Common MISconceptions About Blog Conferences

By | conference, Education | One Comment

If you’ve spent anytime in the blogging space you have probably heard a lot of stories about blogging conferences. You will hear how wonderful they are and you will also hear that they are a waste of time.

We definitely believe that attending a blogging conference is one of the best things you can do to take your blog to the next level.

But what about the non-truths?

5 Blog Conferences Misconceptions

The 5 Most Common Misconceptions About Blog Conferences

There are some misconceptions about conferences floating around in the blogosphere and we want to clear things up!

1. Conferences are Only for New Bloggers

This statement could not be further from the truth! Bloggy Boot Camp and Women Get Social are for newbies, intermediate and advanced bloggers. It doesn’t matter what level you are at you can and will learn invaluable information at one of our conferences. Not only do our attendees learn new information, but we also walk away learning something new each and every time!

2. Conferences are a Waste of Money

The statement that conferences are a waste of money does has some truth behind it. Conferences are a waste of time and money if you are not going to the conference with an open mind to learn, make new connections and advance your blog to the next level. If learning, networking and advancing your skill set is on your agenda then a blog conference might be the best investment you’ve ever made.

3. It’s One Big Mom Party

Like anyone else we want to have a good time at the conferences we host. Mirassou sponsors our cocktail party that is always a lot of fun! With that said our main focus is education. We schedule in as much education as we possibly can into our conferences. In the evenings you can normally find attendees gathered in the lobby of the hotel networking, in their rooms reviewing the days education or sleeping due to information overload!

4. The Material is Boring

Ask anyone that has attended a Bloggy Boot Camp or Women Get Social event and they will tell you that the material is far from boring. We pride ourself on having engaging speakers that truly want to help you succeed! They want to share their tips, tricks and success with you. Our speakers make our conferences come to life. And if you’ve ever heard Tiffany speak then you know there is no way our conferences could be boring!

5. Blog Conferences are Full of Clique’s

While we know first hand that this is the case at some conferences we make it a priority to ensure this isn’t the case at our conferences. First and foremost we understand how hard it is to walk into a room full of strangers! We came up with a strategy early on that gives every attendee to network with just about everyone attending the conference. When you show up to the conference you will be assigned seating for the day. Throughout the day you will move around to different tables which gives you an opportunity to meet people you might not have otherwise came into contact with. We have found that using this system helps even the shiest of people come out of their shell!
