Blogger Fun at FLBlogCon13


I commemorated the last day of summer with 300+ fellow bloggers. Sure — I could have gone to the beach or finished off some project around the house, but none of those activities would have given me the wealth of information learned after a full day at the 2013 Florida Blogger and Social Media Conference (FLBlogCon13).

This was my second time attending the conference. Last year’s FLBlogCon (along with the first conference in 2011) was actually CFLBlogCon but attendees traveled from all parts of Florida to be part of this amazing gathering of bloggers. With that newfound information in mind, organizers gracefully retired the C of CFLBlogCon in favor for a more geographically inclusive title – FLBlogCon.

With the prospect of the third annual FLBlogCon being the biggest ever, I made sure my friend Stephanie over at Everyday Ephee joined along in the blogging fun and I came equipped with fancy business cards to share with my new blog amigos.

Expectations were high after last year’s conference and believe me when I share with all y’all that the team behind FLBlogCon13 did an awesome job planning the conference. Full Sail University served as the host venue and they were almost flawless at that role. The breakout sessions were informative and served as supplements for the notes I gathered from last year. The whole conference, again, was simply a fantastic experience.

It has been only been 9 days but I already miss FLBlogCon13. So to relive the day, here are the key takeaways that will encourage me to live out this year’s conference theme – Aiming for Awesome.
