I have not been to a blogging conference yet. Do you know why? Because I either procrastinate and don’t buy my ticket in time (Blogher) or I am too pregnant. Blissdom 2010 is being held at the end of October in Toronto. Toronto is a 4 hour drive for me and the date is over 2 weeks after my due date.
I have decided that I am going to go, but I can’t do it alone! I am looking for a few sponsors who would be willing to help with the cost of a ticket and hotel. No need for airfare because I will be driving.
As a sponsor companies will be featured on my website and my other social media outlets as well at the conference itself. I am looking specifically for sponsors that I can easily promote at Blissdom. And here is what I am thinking…. I will have my adorable newborn son with me. I will be wearing him and diapering him and breastfeeding him. Wouldn’t it be awesome for a baby carrier company, diaper company, and/or breastfeeding company to help this mama out? I will also be carrying a diaper bag, so those companies can apply too! I will be with lots of mamas who will see me around so this is already great exposure!
If I could I would pay for my own ticket and lodging to avoid “begging” for a sponsor. Bu frankly, I can’t. Plus I have a lot to offer to a sponsor who fits my readership. I wouldn’t agree to be sponsored by a company I wouldn’t promote anyway so you can rest assured I won’t be going thanks to the P word (rhymes with Hampers). I’d love to learn how to make my blog better. My mission has always been to promote cloth diapers, babywearing, breastfeeding, and other “crunchy” topics close to my heart. If I can reach more readers that is even better. I am kind of amazed at how far my website has come since it began over a year ago. I didn’t think I would have ten readers, yet alone the 1,000 plus a day who make it here. I love every one of you guys and I am so glad you stop in. Plus, I love drilling you for advice!
So, if you are out there sponsors, contact me so we can chat about a possible working relationship! I promise my baby will look good in your product. Have you seen my first baby? He is adorable! Lightening will strike twice!
