SoFabU on the Road: Adventures in Blogging

Blogging has been a wonderful adventure for me. I am happy to share this post with you about SoFabU on the Road in exchange for a discounted conference ticket to attend. 

I started my blog because I wanted to share my story as a single, working mom. I loved reading the blogs of other women, but found it hard to relate to their experiences and figured I couldn’t be alone. Over the last 5 years I’ve had lots of adventures in blogging and made some amazing connections. However, now that I’m switching gears from working full-time to being a full-time student, I’ve been thinking about where I want to go with my blog. So I decided to register for SoFab on the Road to learn how to become more intentional.

One of my goals for the year is to continue to post regularly and share more stories about this next journey in my life, getting my PhD. I have been a member of Social Fabric for a few years and have really benefited from professional development they’ve provided to help me grow my blog.


What is SoFabU on the Road?
SoFabU on the Road is a unique event that allows influencers to take advantage of educational opportunities that will help set them a part from the rest. SoFabU on the Road features hands-on, interactive sessions for influencers to implement what they’re learning on the spot. The sessions are paired with fun city-specific adventures where attendees get to practice their newly learned skills.

You can view the agenda for the Chicago session here. I’m excited to hear from our featured speakers, Jennifer Evers from Me, Myself and Jen and MJ Tam and Beth Rosen from SparkFete. They are all amazing influencers and community builders! We’re also going on an amazing double decker tour of Chicago sponsored by Chicago Trolley and Double-Decker Bus Tour. It’ll be a great opportunity to connect with other bloggers and learn great photography tips along the way. Our session will be held at Wyndham Grand Chicago Riverfont with national sponsors MüllerKraft and iBlog.
