Why I’ll be attending the next ProBlogger Training Event

A couple of weeks I ago, I attended Australia’s largest and longest running blogging event, ProBlogger Training Event 2015. Held at the RACQ Royal Pines resort on the Gold Coast, the 2-day event brought together high profile international and local speakers, and over 700 bloggers, to discuss how to grow and monetise our blogs and businesses.

It was one of the most memorable, useful conferences I’ve ever been to. Based on my experience with this year’s ProBlogger experience, here’s why I’ll be attending the next Problogger Training Event. And the next…and the next…

The unexpected benefits of live tweeting a conference

Several weeks ago, I attended WordCamp Brisbane 2015, a 2-day conference about the WordPress platform. I decided at the outset that I would live tweet the entire event, and in all, smashed out over 200 tweets each day – or at least one tweet every two minutes during the sessions.

Live tweeting was exhausting as it was fun. Trying to capture and distill each speaker’s thoughts into 140 character sound bites (at speed), is tough! But I also discovered some unexpected benefits that make me want to live tweet at every conference I attend in future.

What I loved about the Copyblogger Content Certification Program

I have been following Copyblogger for many years. I admire the way founder Brian Clark started his simple blog about creating awesome online content in 2009, and built it into a multi-million dollar content marketing empire that now offers software, online training and a stack of amazing content.

Copyblogger Content Certification Program

Late last year, when I got an email announcing the Copyblogger Content Certification program via Copyblogger Authority, it took me all of about two days to decide to sign up. I had been looking at other online content marketing online courses and certifications, but I particularly liked this program because it provided hours of tutorials and required an assessment of my work by the Copyblogger team. No pressure!
