My first blog conference was taken just one year after I was blogging, and that conference was BlogHer11′. I had a lot of insight from blogging friends on what to do and what not to do. However after attending one and experiencing it myself I feel I have even a better understanding of what BlogHer means to me. For me personally it is not the conferences, parties, or even the “swag”. For me it is meeting with brands face to face. Brands you have been working with or new brands you would like to work with.
Speaking of brands I’m excited to announce my partnership with a major retailer (of all things) electronics (my favorite!)…Best Buy! I was recently asked along with a handful of other amazing bloggers to become part of the Best Buy Blogger Board. This is a small group of 10 handpicked bloggers to represent Best Buy. Our kick off meeting is this weekend at BlogHer12′ in New York City.
Best Buy is the official sponsor of Shibley Smiles at BlogHer12′
They have an official Best Buy BlogHer12′ site where you can find out about the booth and other bloggers. However Best Buy will have a booth set up in the Expo Hall and you can stop by to enter for a chance to win one of many Best Buy gift cards!
During our first meeting the 10 of us will receive our first product to review, and we will be sharing some of our experience and information with you via Facebook, Twitter, and here at Shibley Smiles. I have an inkling of what it is but of course don’t want to spoil the surprise.
If you will be attending BlogHer12′ leave me a note and we can try to hook up. I will be in the Expo Hall Friday morning to early afternoon, however after that I’m playing tourist. I can’t go to New York and not enjoy the sights. I’ve never been before and there is so much to see.
I wanted to thank Best Buy once again for selecting me for this amazing opportunity and sponsoring my trip to BlogHer12′! I look forward to an amazing year representing such an awesome company!
