I’m leaving on a jet plane . . . I am escaping to California for a few days for the annual BLOGFEST with Sweat Pink at the IDEA World Fitness Expo in LA. I am not going to lie I am super excited! This summer getaway will give me a chance to get inspired and re-energized about the direction of my blog as well as to meet up with many of my blogging friends from around the country who I have met since I began writing in my little corner of the web. One of the best parts about the trip is that I will be getting to stay with my friend Nat from Nat Runs Far who is a California girl. The last time I saw Natalie was the day before the Boston Marathon when we got to spend the afternoon talking about all things running, blogging and of course motherhood. I am looking forward to seeing her as well as her beautiful family as they are kindly welcoming me into their home during my visit. Definitely take a peek at her inspiring blog for running motivation!

What’s happening at BLOGFEST with Sweat Pink and IDEA World Fitness Expo?
If you hadn’t guessed yet, this whole adventure is all about blogging and fitness! I attended last year and had a blast (Read my TOP 10 Takeaways from BLOGFEST). This conference will include sessions about everything from food photography for your blog tobuilding your brand using snapchat and youtube to blog peer reviews (which I am especially looking forward to!). I am also excited because this year I was invited by Alyse and Jamie (founders of SweatPink) to be a moderator for a round table about branding!. In addition to the sessions about blogging and social media we will have workout sessions including a BEACHBODY workout and a session with trainer Gunnar Peterson. On the final day of the conference we will have a chance to attend sessions at the IDEA World Fitness Convention. I have signed up for a bootcamp workout some spinning and a Vinyasa Flow Yoga class. There is also an amazing expo with vendors ranging from Lorna Jane Activewear to New Balance Footwear. Last year Natalie and I had a blast checking out all of the booths,the gear, the food samples and mini workout sessions. We even got to enter to win prizes and last year I won an awesome Fitness Tracker Watch. There will also be time to network with the other bloggers which is one of my favorite things about these conferences. I hope to walk away feeling energized and filled with new knowledge of how to improve my blog!
If you aren’t attending this year you should definitely consider adding this conference to your calendar!
