Goal for 2011

Those of you in the blogging world will know what I’m talking about, but those of you from real life will not . . . my goal for the 2011 year of blogging is to attend the BlogHer Conference. For those of you that aren’t familar, BlogHer is one of the big conferences for female bloggers. This year it was in New York City. Some of the biggest names in blogging attend and it’s a great place to network with other bloggers and blog friendly companies.

The 2010 conference was this past weekend. Since I only started blogging a few months ago, have since had a new baby and am in the middle of trying to move . . . not to mention not having the funds . . . I will not be attending this year’s conference.

So my goal is to begin earning enough money AND find sponsorships so that I can attend the conference next fall. I’ve developed some great contacts in a variety of businesses around the blogosphere and I would love for those to flourish and possibly end up resulting in some sponsorships.

Does anyone else have any constructive ideas of how I can accomplish this goal? Feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an email at melissastuffblog at gmail dot com.
