great resource for bloggers

Last weekend I had the opportunity to participate in the blogging conference offered online at the Altitude Design Summit. This is a wonderful organization that caters to bloggers, primarily educating them in different areas of blogging including graphic design, photography, ideas for monetizing and for taking your blog to the next level, should you wish to…

Altitude Design Summit has held live events in great cities like San Francisco, Salt Lake City and The Big Apple and they continue to do so, but this Spring they also held an on-line summit and that was the one I attended. I took classes such as Photoshop for Bloggers, Organized online, what every blogger should know, Photo-styling 101, and Making Money on your Blog Beyond Advertising… plus a few others. The Key Note Speaker was Joy Cho of Oh Joy! and what a pleasure it was hearing her speak. She is the author of Blog, Inc., a natural entrepreneur with a vibrant energy and I really enjoyed hearing her story…

One of the best parts of the Alt Summit online was meeting other bloggers just like me. Blogging can feel a little bit lonely sometimes… As a blogger, you put stuff out into the world wide web and hope that readers find you, that you have somehow connected with them and as every blogger will tell you—you long for comments!  

I was hoping to meet some people like me, people who have an Etsy shop and are looking to grow their blog readership. I was hoping to meet people to chat with, and bounce ideas off of, and maybe even collaborate with down the road…  and I did! It was awesome! 

The Alt Summit website is a wonderful resource for you bloggers out there. Whether you’ve just started blogging or have been blogging for years, there is something for everyone!

 I wanted to showcase a few of the bloggers I met last weekend and expose you to their wonderful lifestyle blogs in case you’d find them interesting too…

1.) Sami from Poor & Pretty| Sami has an adorable lifestyle blog + she sells  cute, original, handmade, vegan soaps in her Etsy shop

2.) Marissa from Burbon & Goose | Marrisa and her sweetheart, Sam, have a his & hers viewpoint blog sharing their interests and adventures in LA…

3.) Jen from Jenahn.com | Jen’s blog is fresh and clean, she focus’ her content on her life experiences living in the San Diego area including fun party ideas and yummy recipes…

4.) Meg from SnapHappyMom | Meg’s blog focus is real life, everyday photography where she provides great ideas for photographing your family; a great reasource for anyone just getting started with their camera.

These were a few of the ladies I had the pleasure of connecting with during the Summit.  I hope you’ll check out their refreshing blogs and leave a comment for them! 🙂
