We’re a little over nine weeks into 2015 and this is my first post of the year, and there were only 15 posts last year. I’m pretty sure they’re going to revoke my blogger credentials soon. So I signed up for a blogging conference, because that makes total sense when you haven’t been blogging much, right?
Part of what sealed the deal for me is that Bev (Bev Cooks) and Kristen (Dine & Dish, Red Faced Runners) are both speaking, and I love them. However, you’ll notice this is a conference for food bloggers and that’s not exactly how I’d classify myself. Sure, I love food and I enjoy posting about local restaurants, but I’m not the greatest at cooking food or coming up with my own recipes, although I’d love to get more into that with the way we’re trying to eat healthier these days (a post on Whole30 is coming soon).
It’s intimidating to see some of the bloggers who are coming because they are LEGIT food bloggers, geniuses that make up their own recipes, work with major brands, post 3-5 times a week, and have a bazillion followers. Not that I should compare where I’m at now with where they’re at now, I’m pretty sure blogging is a full time job for most of them and it’s not for me and that’s okay.
It’s still a bit intimidating and I’m sure I’ll feel a little like an imposter (has anyone seen my self-confidence, I seem to have lost it, haha), but I’m looking for some blogging inspiration and this sounds perfect. They also posted this about the conference on the website…
Are you a food blogger? (new or experienced)
Have you heard about the delicious Portland food scene?
Have you ever traveled here to experience it yourself?
Do you like connecting with your food-loving-picture-taking virtual co-workers face to face instead of online?
Do you like being inspired by others?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Indulge Conference is for YOU!
…and I can definitely answer new—yes—everyday—yes—yes, so I totally belong, right?
Anyone else planning to go to #IndulgeConPDX?
