Last week I had the honor of attending the event, 'Let's Get Social with Ladies Home Journal.' As a blogger who works in the space it was amazing to be around so many inspiring bloggers who are living their dream. But getting to their dream took a lot of hard work, time and persistence, and Ladies Home Journal complied an incredible assortment of panelists, bloggers and brands to showcase the various steps and methods it takes to succeed.
Editor-in-Chief, Sally Lee spoke of how Ladies Home Journal loves working with bloggers and has done so since 2008. This includes a trip to Haiti with Nicole where she distributed crocs with Countess LuAnn to a current toy drive where they are asking bloggers for their holiday picks.
This also included a women inspiring women tagline that was felt through this conference. as we heard from bloggers like Joy of Joy the Baker and Kendi of Kendi Everyday who spoke about their blogging paths as well as a panel with book publishers, an agent and a blogger who turned her blog into a book. We also heard from Gabby Bernstein, author of the popular book, May Cause Miracles. With insightful tips and advice, the packed room was buzzing with excitement and direction.
Another aspect of the conference was the brand connections where bloggers had the chance to meet with Ford Cares, Silpada, Neutrogena and Birkenstock as well as have the chance to network with various bloggers and editors from the magazine.
Another bonus was learning how to pitch to Ladies Home Journal and that they are always looking for bloggers to enhance and develop contact with!
