Exciting news readers - I'm going to the Sydney Blogcademy in November 2014! I know that it is a ridiculous amount of days away, but heck - I'm too frikkin excited to contain it!!
So what is The Blogcademy?
Their website describes it as "a wildly fun, fiercely smart, two-day workshop tailored to bloggers who want to elevate their online presence and business up a level — or fifteen. Taught by three of the world’s most high-profile bloggers, Gala Darling (Gala Darling), Kat Williams (Rock nRoll Bride) and Shauna Haider (Nubby Twiglet), we take your hand and give you a backstage pass to the blogosphere." Basically, it’s the ultimate blogging conference.
Where is it?
The Blogcademy tours the world. 2014 dates and cities were announced this week so I booked my spot at the first ever Sydney session! I’m pretty damn pleased with myself. This is the BEST Christmas present I could ever give myself & I can already feel the awesome blogger vibes coming my way!! Not only does your ticket get you an amazing two day workshop, it connects you to other bloggers/website owners all over the world through the Blogcademy forum where you can interact with other students and the headmistresses before and after your workshop. That's pretty fucking special! Being able to not only attend a workshop with three women who have inspired me for such a long time but to actually get continual support (and a community of like-minded blogging babes) is phenomenal. I am just speechless at how much value I feel I am already getting from this experience.
How much does it cost?
Tickets are $750 USD, which is about $820 AUD. And yes, that IS a lot of money - but how much would it cost for you to have your website evaluated by 3 extremely successful professional bloggers?? Plus, word on the street is that it is worth every single penny. I know it has already got me thinking big picture!
