The first Bloggers At Midlife conference is a happy memory, and the next one is already being planned (last weekend in April 2016–save the date!)
Over a hundred women over forty braved a winter storm to travel to Nashville, Tennessee, to stay at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and attend a day of learning about this industry of writing online.
Thanks to our amazing sponsors like Stouffer’s, Nissan USA, Vibrant Nation, Collective Bias, One2One Network, Albertini International, Cabot Cheese, Always Discreet, 1010 Park Place, and more, our attendees were able to enjoy great brands and learn about products perfect for our demographic.
The most important thing about the whole event was coming together as a community. Friendships formed online were cemented in real life. New friends were made, very often because they were your roommate and you’d never met before!
It’s a very brave thing to come to a conference like this, whether it’s your first time or your tenth. Enjoy these recaps from some of our attendees and speakers.
If you missed us this year, make it a point to join us next year–see you at BAMC16!
