"Me?" Holy beejeezus ohmigoodness! was the first thought that raced through my head when I came upon an email from Traci Suppa of Go BIG or Go Home Travel Blog inviting me to share my experience as a travel video blogger at a panel called
So You Want to ... Build Your Business Through Travel Blogging at the American Society of Journalists and Authors's 42nd Annual Writers' Conference (ASJA)
Holy crikey batmobile! was the next set of words that tumbled out of my mouth when I saw that the panel would feature other bloggers I admired such as Maria and Anthony Russo of Cultureist.com and Charu Suri of ButterflyDiary.com
Then, there was an entire hour of woah, is this for real? Really for real? For real, for realz?
After a couple more email exchanges between Traci and I, it finally dawned on me that is was.
After having the pleasure of attending so many panels on travel, writing and blogging and learning so much from all the amazing panelists I met, I am honored and more than happy to share what I learned during this DIY travel blogging journey.
So if you're planning on being at the conference that day, give me a hoot and holler. I'd love to see you!
And oh, here's the tagline for the conference: (lifted from their website)
"Whether you're a seasoned veteran, an enthusiastic rookie or somewhere in between, the 60-plus panels, workshops and special events at ASJA 2013 will supercharge your career."
Woo hoo! I'm going to help you supercharge your career!
We're gathering at 9am on Friday April 26th, 2013 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York City (mid-town Manhattan to be exact)
Again, here are the deets - succinctly now (copy & paste-able):
