Who Is The Conference For?
So, the list of bloggers that are coming to the event is growing, and you don't want to miss out! So who is the conference for?
- Freelance writers

- Social media enthusiasts
- PF groupies
If you're in one of the groups above, you don't want to miss out on this event!
What Will Be Happening At The Conference?
There will be a variety of sessions at the conference, and the final details are still being hashed out. But it currently looks like there will be a social/mixer on Friday night for everyone to get together and meet. Personally I'm looking forward to this because I've been talking with a lot of these folks for over 3 years, but never met in person.
Then on Saturday and Sunday there will be tons of sessions with a couple of keynote speakers, sessions with experienced personal finance bloggers and industry professionals, expert panels with Q&A time, and breakout sessions where a variety of topics will be covered.
So Why Should You Go To The Financial Blogger Conference?
So if you're not already convinced to attend, here are a few more reasons why you should be going to FinBlogCon.
- You love personal finance and blogging.
- You want to meet like minded bloggers because your spouse is tired of listening to you talk about your blog – and financial topics in general
- You want to learn about new products and services in the financial industry.
- You want to learn how to build a better blog in terms of traffic, engagement, monetization
- Like me, you want to meet blogging friends face to face and network. Blogging is all about relationships and working together!
- So you can say you were there at the first annual FinBlogCon!
