Crazy Sweet Tuesday {Announcing Online BlogCon 2012}

This post may contain affiliate links. For more information, read my disclosure policy.

Welcome to Crazy Sweet Tuesday, where I’m super excited today, and about more than just sugar!

I have a huge announcement that I’ve been keeping from you.

No, I’m not pregnant…but I do have a “baby” of sorts to share with you.

Ashton, from Something Swanky Desserts & Designs, had this awesome idea awhile back. And we’ve been working together to make it happen. So, today we are announcing…

Online BlogCon 2012!

Online BlogCon is a fantastic concept: an online blog conference. Yes, online. No need to travel. No need to find a babysitter. No need to get out of your PJ’s!

Blog conferences have speakers, and so does Online BlogCon! Our “speakers” are from some of your favorite blogs: Cookies & Cups, Love from the Oven, and many more! Check out all our guest speakers here. Each of our speakers is going to write a post on something to do with blogging: from photography to working with sponsors, and everything in between. We also hope to do lots of fun giveaways and some local meet ‘n greet sessions after the conference. It’s going to be great! Go check it out and see for yourself!

Online BlogCon is taking place October 22-24, 2012, so mark your calendars! Registration is now open and we hope to make this a huge success. Finally, a conference that everyone can attend!

Buckeye Cookie Bites by Lemons for Lulu. I’m also obsessed with Buckeyes. But not with rolling them, so this is fabulous!

    I posted this same question on Something Swanky, but thought I’d ask you as well. I’m so excited for this Online BlogCon. However, I have work during the day (major bummer). Is it going to be a live video conference? If so, will I be able to watch them later or do participants need to be online and watch them live? I’m hoping I’ll be able to participate at home after work if at all possible. Thanks!

  21. What a great idea!! I have always wanted to go to a conference but haven’t been able to so this is perfect!!
