Founders

Since its inception in 2009, the Bloggy Boot Camp blogging and social media conference tour has been incredibly successful, garnering attention from The New York Times, The Huffington Post, ABC News, and blogs everywhere. With inclusive, information-filled sessions and great networking opportunities, Bloggy Boot Camp is a “must-attend” event for bloggers all over the U.S. What’s more, participating brands have been particularly pleased with their interaction with attendees as they are invited into education sessions and lunch, as opposed to being set up in an exhibit hall with little exposure.

At each stop on the tour, Tiffany Romero and Francesca Banducci, the two women behind the conference, help bloggers to grow their online relationships in person and increase their understanding of blogging and social media.

In 2014, we officially expanded our conference brand, formally offering two-day events as part of our Women Get Social series.

Think of this extension as two-day event built on the fundamentals from Bloggy Boot Camp, but 100% focused on the business of blogging.
