If you are a professional and have your company paying for the ticket is usually the standard. But as a blogger or social media type who works for themselves, then paying for the conference and its expensive like hotel, travel, etc. can be daunting. Obtaining a sponsor can help defray your costs!
I am a glorified conference junkie and I am proud to say it. But don’t let this post fool you—I cannot in any way attend all the conferences that I want to go to.
This new portal continues to help the NAACP with their goal to stay on the forefront of social media and spreading their message to a younger audience who is ready to take the lead in the ongoing Civil Rights Movement.
I believe if someone is nagging you about your Klout score, or using that data only to determine how “influential” you are or to decide whether or not they want to work with you, then they are doing themselves a disservice.

I am so excited to be going to my first ever BlogHer Conference taking place this year in San Diego, the motherload of all blogging conferences for women.
As some of you may have noticed, I am kinda sorta addicted to attending conferences and events, especially those of the social media and blogging persuasion. Blogging and social media have become my passion and I enjoy gatherings that celebrate the genres as well as encourage learning, networking, and growth.

But just like any new thing on the innerwebs, there are always those that simply don’t get it—I mean, how many times did you have to explain to someone how to use Twitter before people finally caught on?
