When Blogalicious comes around, I can always count on a classy well run conference that brings together an incredible community during a weekend of fun events, inspiring sessions, networking, and delicious food.
This year’s conference theme was Making Masterful Connections and began with a keynote by Jesse Jones who spoke about U-ology 101, “the science behind what it takes to find what you’re passionate about” and bringing those ideas to fruition.
Jesse is inspiring not only because of his impressive accomplishments and his young age but because his words really resonated with me and hit me at a time when they were needed. He spoke about identifying the things we are deeply connected to and building connections. Here are some key points that really inspired me:
We’re all sharing the same fears, desires….We all have things we want to create.
How do we identify the things we feel we are deeply connected to?
Make what you do become a habit.
Most important connection we will make is from within.
Ask yourself if you are really connected, what you want to do with your blog, if you’re paying attention to readers versus worrying about statistics.
Answer emails, pay attention to your readers, who you are talking to on Twitter…“It builds the house”
Your job is to develop an army of the people who want to build with you.
Don’t ever enter into a relationship with someone for what they can do for you right now. It’s not about right now.
Understand why you’re in a room, why you’re here, what you are trying to create.
Make the relationships you’re building really important.
I am the MyBlogalicious Editor in Chief and received a complimentary conference pass for my work, however, it is a conference I’d happily attend on my own dime.
