There is a theory that everyone on Earth is connected to everyone else within six degrees of separation.
While you might find it difficult to believe that only six relationships separate you from an introduction to Warren Buffett, J.K. Rowling, or Barack Obama, within our smaller world of finance blogging, we are certainly interconnected. The annual Financial Blogger Conference really drives that point home.
Attending FinCon not only helps you to strengthen the blogging relationships you already have, but it gives you the opportunity to make new connections within our industry.
In 2011 and 2012, finance bloggers from all over the country met at FinCon and made connections, which led to any number of new projects, new ideas, and new friendships:
Julie Starnes Rains got to meet her colleagues from Wise Bread and other online acquaintances plus have lunch with Emily Guy Birken (who writes for Gary Foreman of The Dollar Stretcher); Greg Go introduced Julie to Alison at Zillow which led to a new article.
What connections have you made through FinCon?
