I am attending Blogger Bash 2016 as an Acorn Ambassador, a real dream come true! I received products from Activision at no cost, and all thoughts and opinions are my own.
I first heard about Blogger Bash last year from some blogging friends and I thought it sounded amazing. Unfortunately, it was too late to try it last year and so I kept the thought running around in my mind this year. And then it happened, a thought turned into reality! I’m heading to Blogger Bash next month and I am so pumped!!
A girl from Salt Lake City heading to the Big Apple? Be still my heart! I’ve only been once and that was back in college in the middle of January (I’m the one in the pink headband in the picture, a picture that came from a film camera 11 years ago!). It was cold and I missed being able to fully enjoy the city. So I’m excited to be headed back for the summer and for an event like Blogger Bash. Let’s talk about what I’ll be doing while I’m there and how you can join us!
What is Blogger Bash? It takes place on July 13th and 14th in NYC aboard a docked yacht. Yes, a yacht! I’ve never been on a yacht before. I have chills! There are themed parties and meals, speakers and influencers. There is a chance to network with big name brands for babies, Care Bears, food, toys, travel, and more. This is a conference that will give you tools and connections. I’ve been ready to go the next level in my blogging and this is what I need to do it! There is swag too, of course. I’ve had butterflies when thinking about it for the last month and they are growing daily as we get closer. To borrow a word from my little sister, it’s going to be epic.
If you’re ready to take it to the next level with your blogging, meet some of the biggest name brands in the country, network with other awesome bloggers like me, and party and learn on a yacht in New York City, then this is for you! And you can save $60 on your ticket to Blogger Bash 2016 by heading over here. Yep, I’ve helped you out already!
Here are the details. Blogger Bash will be held Wednesday and Thursday, July 13 & 14, 2016 on the beautiful Majesty yacht docked at Pier 81 in Manhattan. The Majesty yacht will be docked for duration of the Blogger Bash conference, so we will not be at sea the whole time. Are you ready to meet with the brands that are part of your daily life? Do you have the basics down, you have an audience, and now, you are ready for something new and fresh in the independent career you’ve launched for yourself? Do you want to make new connections, grow your community, and strengthen your voice? They are expecting 450 attendees – not including press or brand reps – for Blogger Bash 2016! Your ticket allows you entrance into all open events, including meals, parties, the all-day expo, and speed pitching (limited seating), all panel discussions and speaker sessions (limited seating).
So what are you waiting for? Head on over and become my new best friend on a trip to NYC!
Did I mention there will be swag? And I can promise you this swag will make you a hero in your kids’ eyes. We just received a package a few days ago from Activision full of Skylanders goodness!
When we opened the package, my oldest literally gasped with excitement. They wanted to tear into the packages right away…
The Skylanders Superchargers Raching game on our Wii was the perfect family night activity for us! Sitting there playing with them reminded me of game nights growing up with my siblings. Our favorite games involved racing, maybe because we are all just a little competitive. We’d sometimes get a little too competitive and my dad would threaten to take the games away, but it was always a good time with them. And after playing our Skylanders Superchargers Racing game, I was grateful that we had opportunities to create memories like that with our children.
My oldest son is a little collector so the Skylanders Battlecrest cards were right up his alley! He immediately began organizing them and got started with the Skylanders Battlecrest game on my phone.
Playing the game is now an incentive for him to get his chores and reading done, exactly the sort of thing we needed now that school is out!
Connect with Skylanders by finding them on Facebook (@SkylandersGame), Twitter (@SkylandersGame), and Instagram (@SkylanderstheGame). You can also share your own fun by using #skylanders.
I am so humbled and grateful to be attending Blogger Bash this year as an Acorn Ambassador. I am counting down the days! If you snag a ticket, let me know so we can meet up while we’re there!
