Our Second Year
The Blog Connect
PHLbloggers is excited to announce the second year of The Blog Connect. This year we are thrilled to come together and learn how to Blog It Better. Our Keynote Speaker, Sarah Morgan, is queen of maximizing your efforts. She helps empower bloggers to maximize their content and better understand their value. This year's goal is to help you do what you do, better. Work smart not hard, right?
Last year, The Blog Connect brought together 60 bloggers and tons of sponsors to create a blog learning experience. What unified us was our a passion for the side hustle, making our blogs the best they can be, and a love of meeting new blogger friends IRL – it was all about Making It Count. Find out more.
This year's conference is expanding, and will kick-off with a party Saturday evening as an opportunity for attendees and speakers to get to know each other. Sunday will be a day of speakers, networking, eating, and coffee. This conference is made for anybody who has started a blog and is ready to take the next step and make it better – Blog It Better!
Tickets will be available to The Blog Connect alumni on December 1, 2016 and open to the public on December 15, 2016. There will be 25 alumni tickets available ($75), 25 early bird tickets available ($100), and 50 regular tickets available ($125), so make sure to get your ticket early! We will be releasing information about travel and accommodations before tickets are released.
If you have any questions about the launch party, the conference, accommodations, or travel, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are so excited for this year and all the new we are bringing. One of the most notable additions to our line-up is a keynote speaker! Thanks to everyone who came last year and shared their input, we were able to find an incredible speaker who can share her experiences as she has learned to Blog It Better.

We’re so excited to announce that speaker applications are open for The Blog Connect Conference. The theme of this year’s conference is Blog It Better. It is intended for bloggers who have gotten their feet wet and are looking to make improvements to their blog to increase community, traffic, and engagement. The speaker topics have not yet been decided yet because we want to hear from you. What are you experts in? What do you want to share with the group?
We are looking for sessions on collaborations, vendors, photography, consistency, SEO, gaining followers, making an e-book or products, being a mid-sized blogger, how to find your audience, and mastermind groups.
We’re looking for speakers who are engaging, have a great story to share, and can help our bloggers make a difference. If you are selected as a speaker, you will receive a free ticket to the conference.
Day 2 LOCATION
For the second year, we will be calling the beautiful Saxbys headquarters home for the conference. The lofted space is located in Center City, has BEAUTIFUL light and comes with all the coffee you can drink. Prepare to be caffeinated.
When you arrive at the building, you will enter from Chestnut St. through double doors. You will then take the elevator to the third floor and can follow our signs the rest of the way!
