BlogShop comes to Philly!

 
BlogShop is coming to Philly, which is SO exciting that they are finally coming to my city. I just wish I had an extra $772.71 lying around. Oh, and also a MAC. Unfortunately I just have a PC ::hangs head in shame::

Have you ever gone to BlogShop or another blogging conference? Did you think it was worth it? I would love to go to something like this - maybe next year! A girl can dream :)

  2. Why in the crapdoodles is it so expensive?! I saw an instagram of someone at Alt Summit recently who was taking a photo class and they were posing macaroons next to a fancy tray and I just thought yeah....that's not my kind of blog. I'd rather go to a Broke Girl's Blogging Conference any day!

  3. Blog conferences are SO expensive, and I'm really trying to figure out why. Unless they are going to inject me with all of the html knowledge in the world/how to use my DSLR like a pro, I can't justify paying that.

    If I had $700 laying around, it would be going toward a Mac! Don't feel bad - I don't have one either!

    I'm all for this Broke Girl's Blogging Conference!

  5. Blogshop was in Seattle not too long ago, but alas it is just too much $. Times like this I wish I blogged for a company that could foot the bill. Alt Summit is on the wishlist - hoping to make it a reality next year!

  7. Oh I would so love to be going to the Blogher conference or Alt Summit! I told my husband that I absolutely MUST go next year. No ifs ands or buts.

  8. There are all these wonderful BlogShop thingers I'd LOVE to go to! Alt Summit being one of them. I just feel like I'm not good enough for it...talk me out of it! I don't know why I feel that way :(

  9. If I wasn't forking over a ton of money and heading to Engage this year in December I'd totally hit up a Blogshop because I'm a huge Bri fan myself! Crossing my fingers you'll find that extra money - and a MAC - sometime soon so you can go too. It always looks like those Blogshop students have so much fun :)

  10. Hey! Stumbled upon your blog and saw that you wanted to go to Philly Blogshop. I actually attended the one in Philly last month, and if you do get the opportunity to go again (they are in NYC a lot, and will surely be back in Philly soon), GO! It's so much fun, absolutely worth the money (and that's coming from me, who's an actual graphic designer, so I was a bit ahead of the game here), and you meet some great people. The gift bag doesn't suck either. Hope you get to go next time!

    Here are some of my pics from the blogshop, if you're interested:
