In a world driven by virtual news and entertainment sources, blogs are now king. Given an escalated reliability on digital reporting, typical sources of everyday news affairs via print are out with the old, and daily updates by blog are in with the new. As blogging sources continue to mount in levels of importance, more blogs are becoming viable businesses, with the blogger as the new authoritative source for their particular topic area. We previously dissected the issue just last year as a substantial increase in local fashion and style bloggers rushed the scene. Tackling this continuing developing art form, and desiring to mold the best, we prompted to take action.
If you are an aspiring blogger, emerging blogger, or curious all the same, mark your calendar for May 1 and May 2. DFW Style Daily will host its first ever Blogger 2 Boss Conference at NYLO Las Colinas filled with interactive learning sessions, giveaways, blogger meet and greets, and more. Paying it forward is weaved within our DNA, and with a fun-filled blogger’s conference on the horizon, we anticipate a wealth of Dallas bloggers taking their blogs to the next level.
Friday, May 1 marks the kickoff party for this inaugural conference, where guests will party poolside at NYLO Las Colinas beginning at 6:30PM. DJ Dr. Mack will blast the tunes, as cocktails, spirits, and light appetizers start to flow. Get ready to paint the conference in style with free mini manicures dished by local salon Bellacures on site. Light vendor shopping will be available, along with plenty of networking and photo opportunities with local bloggers and area influencers. But that’s only the beginning…
A good night’s sleep is definitely warranted on Friday, because the conference officially swings into full gear Saturday, May 2. DFW Style Daily Founder Lisa Petty opens the conference, with an expert VIP blogger panel immediately to follow. With appearances by notable bloggers Cynthia Smoot, Alex Young, Vashti Patrick-Joseph and Heather Buen – tips and tricks of the trade will be shared with VIP conference registrants. Expert-led breakout sessions will touch on hot topic issues for bloggers, along with future takeaways to help transform blogs into businesses. And did we mention the on-site vendors and giveaways?
Not to give too much away but a braid bar by Dallas’ new Tangerine Salon will keep tresses fresh, along with unbeatable shopping with Socialite Pink, FM Fashion Music, Black Beauty Accessories, MissA, H Pederson Design Studio, and more. MiniLuxe will provide mini mani touch-ups on site with complimentary skincare readings by DermOne. Totally up for grabs are giveaways by participating vendors and a complimentary swag bag for attendees – and dare we say there’s even more in store! Gather all of your blogging buds and come network with us for the inaugural Blogger 2 Boss Conference May 1 – 2. Registration is available via Eventbrite here with more details on our Event Calendar. See you there!
