Those words probably either inspired a burst of excitement or a cloud of anxiety for you. If you’re anything like the average blogger, you might even have felt both! Totally normal.
Conferences, for bloggers or other, take us out of our comfort zone by dropping us in a maelstrom of excited bodies, forcing us to sleep in unfamiliar spaces, bombarding us with information on all sides. And that’s only once you’ve arrived. If you suffer from travel anxiety, the stress starts even before you get there!
Fact is, conferences don’t have to be angst filled. Join us Thursday, July 12th at 10am PST/1pm EST for this month’s Twitter #SplashChat when we’ll discuss ‘Keeping Your Sanity While at a Conference.’ I’ll be tweeting from Evo’12, demonstrating my own #1 rule: bring your own Wifi!
Anxious to get some tips before Thursday? Check out these blog posts written by some awesome Splashers. If you have posts of your own, leave them in the comments and we’ll add them to the list!
