Pretty soon I’ll be headed to my first blogging conference of 2015, and I’m so excited to be trying something new! Immediately following the Star Wars 10k on Saturday, I’ll be making the five hour drive to Las Vegas, NV (ouch, my bum knee is already aching) for Affiliate Summit West. ASW (as the cool kids call it) is a conference all about making MONEY, something I desperately need to do if I want to stay out of cubical jail. This conference has been around for over 10 years and I’ve been wanting to go. This year I applied for one of their scholarships – and I was selected! YAY! Winning this ticket has really filled up the huge hole in my conference heart from not being able to afford Alt Summit this year. I’m hoping I can learn how to better leverage my advertiser and affiliate relationships to not only make myself more moolah, but also bring you new and useful information you can really use. My number one goal with this blog has been and always will be to help people, so I’m hoping this conference will teach me how I can continue to provide good content alongside earning a decent living.
The conference is taking place at one of my favorite hotels in Las Vegas – Paris! (Although I’m staying next door at Bally’s, Paris’ nerdy little sister.) I hope I can sneak in a meal at Mon Gabi and a couple rounds of Roulette in between presentations and networking!
The blog will be a little quiet next week, but please do keep an eye on my social media accounts for Star Wars 10k and Affiliate Summit West updates and shenanigans. (Oh yes, there will be shenanigans.)
Au revoir for now!
