Today I have exciting news to share plus a giveaway, and I don’t even know where to begin. It’s amazing the opportunities you come across when you’re a food blogger. Sure, we get products to try and cookbooks to review, but I’m talking about bigger things. Opportunities to build a strong(er) community. Opportunities to share what you know (and love) with others. Opportunities that make you want to throw up and hide in a corner.
Next month, I will be speaking at the Food and Wine Conference on a photography panel with Irvin of Eat The Love, Renee of Magnolia Days, and Cherri of The Watering Mouth. Me. Speaking. Out in public on a panel. If you’re looking for ways to improve your food photography, then you must come listen to us and learn some of our secrets. And if you’re wondering how you can join us down in sunny Orlando, FL next month, just keep reading for a little surprise.
Have you heard of the Food and Wine Conference yet? It is a blogging conference being sponsored by #SundaySupper July 19-21 down in Orlando, FL. It’s brand new this year (first year!), so we want you to join us. Otherwise, it’ll just be us talking to empty chairs. And empty chairs have no use for us as we babble on about lighting, white balance, styling, and food props.
But this conference isn’t just about us and our photography panel. This is a conference where you, the food blogger, can learn to grow and market your blog to a wider audience. We have speakers talking to you about SEO, social media, cookbook proposals, growing your blog into a business, working with brands, and more! Click here to check out the packed schedule we have.
Now this conference isn’t just about business. It’s about having fun. Notice the FOOD and WINE part in our name? There will be a chocolate demonstration; a tour of the culinary school, beer, and wine lab; and more!
And if that isn’t enough incentive, Sara Moulton is our keynote speaker. You get to meet Sara. Sara gets to meet you. Sounds like a win-win to me.
So are you ready for the surprise? As you’re getting ready to make travel plans to join us next month, let us help you with your budget. We are giving away one conference ticket (a $250 value). To enter, sign in to Rafflecopter below and follow the directions. Good luck! Giveaway ends June 26, 2013.
