Digital Parents

So by now you’re all aware that the Digital Parents Conference 2012 site went live today….TODAY!!!!

Which means by now you would all know that on 30 March 2012 the largest group of brilliant bloggers (that’s you) alongside PR companies and brands will descend onto The Sebel Albert Park Melbourne to talk all things blogging.

And what makes it even more special for me is that I am on the planning team. Brenda Gaddi, Grace Titioka, Trae Flett, Kirrily Whatman, Tina Gray and I we are going to bring you one hell of a conference.

And how do I know that? Because the buzz after this year’s Aussie Bloggers Conference (also organised by Brenda) was pretty hard to miss. Brenda and the ladies have all come away from it with some fantastic ideas to make next year’s conference even better.

I didn’t attend this year’s Aussie Bloggers Conference because well I was a little intimidated by the blogging genius that was going to be in the room. And you see that was my mistake; that conference was exactly what I needed to get my blog up and happening again after a long hiatus.

Reading the twitter stream confirmed what deep down I already knew; I should have gone.

Which is why I won’t be making that mistake again.

In the last 6 months I have found this blogging community the most welcoming, accepting, gracious bunch of people and the twitter connections I’ve made are well…priceless

So come along and meet other bloggers face to face; the program, the speakers, the PR companies and the brands will only cement and further enhance your blog. I tell no word of a lie.

So where will you be 30 March 2012? I’ll be the one grinning from ear to ear, rubbing my hands together itching to suck it all in.

Register here

I would love to meet you.

      I hope you can sort out your logistics too. It will be great to have you in the room. I think we’re all in that same boat but it will be well worth it.

      Congratulations on being part of the brilliant team putting the conference together! I’m going and was lucky enough to get an early bird ticket – they weren’t lying when they said you’ll need to be early! I’m glad I’d already noticed the hype and jumped on the website as soon as it was announced on Twitter.

      Like you, I’m a bunch of nerves when I think about being in the same room as some of the amazing, influential, Aussie bloggers around but I can’t wait!

        Love & stuff

                      Hi Maria,
                      It was so good to meet you & hub on Friday night at DPUnplugged!
                      You were a “tad” occupied but for a great cause!
                      I went to ABC in March, and was definitely overly concerned about “not fitting in” but that lasted… Until HomeMade Cupcakes by Sara ( blogger at my table) & Coffee break.
                      what an experience that day & night was!
                      You can be rest assured it will be the best choice ever to come to this one….and when you are also part of the team…fantastic!
                      Great news….DPCon12!
                      PS . All booked – flights room ticket.
