Yes, you heard correctly! I am speaking at Blogalicious, an online community and annual conference to celebrate diversity in social media and to serve as a supportive platform for its members to grow their blogs, brands, and businesses. I will be presenting at a session entitled, Pursuing Your Blogging Passion While Working Your 9-5:
The yearly Blogalicious Weekend conference – the first and only event of its kind – is THE go-to destination for influential multicultural women social media enthusiasts from all over the world to collaborate, connect and uplift one another. Also integral to the Blogalicious charter is the desire to ignite a sense of unity within the multicultural blogging community as welll as to educate marketers about the value of the demographic in today’s marketplace. Whether you are a blogger interested in connecting to a welcoming sisterhood or a brand looking to engage with a robust network of social media influencers, the Blogalicious community is rich with meaningful relationships and limitless opportunity.
Many of us bloggers are growing our media empires “on the side” – working a day job while also working our blogs part-time. The common thinking is to covet the full-time blogging career, but finding ways to use your blogging and social media skills in the workplace can be just the right boost to your career or help transition to blogging full-time (if that’s what you want!).
For those interested in climbing the corporate ladder or adding to their work experience, finding opportunities to use your blogging skills can lead to working on cross-functional teams, greater visibility in your work organization, adding some security to your current position, transitioning to a new role, or ultimately a promotion. And for those working towards the goal of becoming a “full-time” blogger, we’ll discuss how to maintain a balance between both workloads, streamlining goals and laying the foundation for making the career leap.
