Going to a food blogging conference can be pretty life changing. Not only can you meet new friends who you will have tons in common with; but you can meet potential sponsors, learn new skills that will boost you to new levels. If it’s not on your goals to attend a conference this year, I would strongly recommend that you add it to your list.
My first food blogging conference was in 2017, when I attended Everything Food Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. The amount of value gained by attending is immeasurable. From meeting new friends who are also food bloggers, to connecting with sponsors and learning new skills that I use everyday.
