Bloggy Boot Camp 2012: Are YOU Going?

When Tiffany launched her first Bloggy Boot Camp in the form of SITScation, it was such a gamble. Would people come? Would the day be successful?

Lucky for us, our girl is never without vision and a talent to make things happen.

And here we are, three years and 12 Bloggy Boot Camps later, ready to launch yet another year of our blog and social media conferences for women.

The only question that remains is whether or not you are ready to join us.

Bloggy Boot Camp 2012 Blogging and Social Media Conferences Schedule

Here is the final schedule for 2012:

St. Louis, Missouri: April 21, 2012

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: May 19 2012

Dallas, Texas: September 15, 2012

Las Vegas, Nevada: October 13, 2012

Tickets for our 2012 tour are only $99.00. We’re eliminating early, not-so-early, kinda-later ticket pricing. It’s just be one flat-rate, keeping Bloggy Boot Camp one of the most economical, but most valuable, conferences around.

Bloggy Boot Camp Program Overview

For each stop, many of the questions we receive are who the speakers are and what the topics we will be covering. One of the major changes we’ve made for 2012 is to map out exactly what the programming will look like BEFORE the tickets go on sale.

BBC Core Concepts Online

Did you just read that list of Core Concept topics and think, “Wow! I wish I could attend more than just one Bloggy Boot Camp. Tiffany and Francesca rock my world.”

{OK. I embellish.}

If you’re interested the education and fantastic take aways from all four Bloggy Boot Camp stops next year, then consider signing up for our online option. For only $25 more over the ticket price, you’ll have access to all of our Core Concept presentations via live webinars.

Online Learning

Each webinar will take place 7 to 10 days after the live event and will be available in real time, and in recorded version. What this means is that you can actively participate in the live webinars, or simply watch the recorded versions at your convenience.

We’ll also be launching a private section of our discussion forum just for these select attendees! {Totally cool, right?}

If you can’t join us for any of the live events, and are only interested in the webinar series, we will be opening up registration for this option soon. Stay tuned to The SITS Girls for more details.

    Since I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’m thinking the Vegas one would be great. However, I’ve never been to Vegas and it seems that whenever I try to plan a trip everything falls apart! Next October seems very far away. Hmmmm…

  2. says

    Core concepts in Dallas and STL are more what I am interested in than the ones in Vegas where I live. Hmm. Too bad I won’t be able to afford to go to either Dallas or STL. Since I’m already in Vegas I’ll likely be attending that.

    • Tiffany says

      You can get those core concepts in the webinar version. Just a $25 if you buy a ticket to any boot camp.

  3. says

    I have never been to a conference for blogging and am seriously considering going to Las Vegas. Are Bloggy Boot Camps good for newbies? Thanks!

  4. says

    Definitely the Dallas even in September!!!! This will also be the first conference. I hope to see, and meet, a lot of you there!!!

    Blogfully yours,
    Barb :)

  5. says

    Man oh man, I could write a post on what I learned at bloggy boot camp chicago.

    A POST.

    I really should.

    I learned the important stuff. Like: you didn’t think I’d tell you, did you?

    Saving it for my post, sister.


  6. says

    I am 99% sure I will be at the one in St. Louis and toting my baby around. She will be around 6 months old at the time of the conference. :) Thanks for letting me bring her with me. I will be saving my pennies to pay for my ticket… I can’t wait!!!

  7. KateW says

    Wish I could go! Maybe I will do the webinars. They seem worth it. I am not new to blogging, but am selling old sites and starting a new one. I could use this advice.

  8. says

    Wishing on stars that I could at least have the $$ to access these webinars. I’m an amateur blogger, looking for my place in this BIG blogging world!

    This is an awesome site and I am looking around more tonight. Thanks for helping people like me learn the ways to blog best!

  9. says

    Sorry I had no idea of this event in Denver and sorry I missed it. The larger food blogging conferences have zero appeal for me and my boss at my ‘real’ job doesn’t let me leave often…and that boss would be me!

  10. says

    I have a friend already signed up for Dallas 2012 and that’s just hop down the road for me. I am seriously thinking I’m gonna do it.

    I’m just so new at this…like maybe less than a month old…and I’m not even sure what I’m doing half the time. However, surely by next year, huh?!?

    The more I read…the more I want to.

    Who am I kidding. I’ll be there.

  11. says

    Relatively decent put up. We really located your current web page along with needed for you to express that will We have extremely loved checking your current web log along with threads. However I’ll always be checking your current supply along with My spouse and i desire for you to read through your current web log yet again.

  12. says

    Well I am seriously considering going to the Philadelphia Boot Camp in May. I am turning 40 this year and this is my year to get serious about things I would like to do and accomplish. My blog is going to be high on the priority list. I live a little over an hour away and its weighing on me to sign up. Anyone else from Philly and surrounding areas going?

    • admin says

      We’ve got quite a few Philly/New Jersey ladies attending.

      We will start a twitter group in a few weeks.

      Let us know if you have any questions!


    • says

      I’m attending – traveling all the way from Albany, NY! I’ll be rolling in on the Amtrak and I couldn’t be more excited. My professorly hubs is attending, too – he’s a comp/rhet guy, and he’s super interested in the blogosphere. Him and a ton of lovely ladies… should be interesting. :)

  13. says

    SO excited to be joining you in Philly! I’ve undergone a huge blogging transition, from my own personal self hosted blog to my current gig as a blogging personality for the local newspaper (Albany Times Union, Albany, NY.) I’m particularly interested in the hyper-local blogging bit; I could write a book on this from all I have learned in the past 7 months as a local newbie blogger for the Times Union!

    I’m pumped, ladies!

  14. says

    I desperately want to go to the Dallas Conference! If anyone is interested in a room buddy I would be happy to oblige!! I cannot wait until September to see what the future holds for my blog


  1. […] Bloggy Boot Camp – Presented by the SITS Girls, Bloggy Boot Camp is one I have had on my list for quite some time. I was hoping to hit Vegas next year (they will have four locations next year), but the timing isn’t quite the best with my current VA client business cycles (maybe Dallas). They are offering an online option this year for $25 more than the on-location ticket prices. […]
