Connect with Fellow #FinCon13 Bloggers Year-Round
While the Financial Blogger Conference can only last for one long weekend, the connections you make with each other are much more long lasting. Even if #FinCon13 will be your first chance to attend the premier blogging conference, you can still get a head start on connecting with other bloggers before you arrive in St. Louis. Here are some of the best ways to reach out to fellow bloggers during the long wait until October:
All conference attendees receive an invitation to this page from our host Phil Taylor. This is a great space to share ideas, ask for advice, post special projects, and share news. Even if you are not attending this year, you can like the page and still be kept in the loop on what’s happening with #FinCon13.
Join the conversation! In both 2011 and 2012, FinCon tweeters were able to make #FinCon11/12 one of the top trending topics on Twitter for the entire weekend. Even before we reach #FinCon13, you can use that hashtag to reach out to fellow FinCon bloggers and have conversations about everything from the annual pull-up contest to how to improve your blog.
Reach Out and Touch Someone
Finally, it’s important to remember that financial bloggers are among the most welcoming and friendly people you’ll ever have the privilege to meet. Email, call, skype, or tweet directly to anyone you’d be interested in talking to. We all love to help out our fellow bloggers.
