You may have noticed my badge on the right side about a Financial Bloggers conference. I signed up recently and I’m already excited about it. One of the things I enjoy is meeting up with some of my favorite bloggers and getting to know them and ask them about their sites. I’ve been to a couple of conferences and I’ve had some good times.
Now I’ll meet some more people this fall from the personal finance niche. If you’re a personal finance blogger, please consider coming. It’s a fantastic way to meet some new people and build your blog. I hope to see you this fall!
I want to give a special shout to Phil from PT Money for getting this conference set up. It’s a ton of work, but he’s really focused to make this a huge success!
