A Big Welcome to: Bohemian Babushka!

Hi all!  This week I'm trying something new and different.  Because my computer use this week is going to be very limited (if at all), I have a great group of visitors sharing their wonderful posts with you!  I hope you'll take the time to read their posts, leave a comment, and visit their blogs (and follow too) if you get a chance! I think this week is going to be fun and I hope you'll join in. :)

The very first visitor is the blog author of Bohemian Babuska, who, by the way, just got married!  You can read about that here, and big congrats to her!!  The link to her blog is and I hope you'll visit often.

The post she has offered (thank you so much!) is here:

Conference Conga Line
HolaHolaHola My Beautifuls!  Today BB will address a topic all bloggers love and look forward to- CONFERENCES!!!  For many of us it's a highlight of our year.  Not only do we get information, get a chance to network with sponsors and other bloggers, we finally get to put a face to those we've friended over the blogasphere. ESO!!!

Babushka's First and Favorite is of course Hispanicize.  This year thanks to the American Latino Heritage Fund Roadtrip BB will be a panelist in this one of a kind, wondeful, buenisimo event.  It's so much, so good, that it's a 5 day smorgasbord!! Naturally it's not only for Latinos- everyone is welcome, but because it's organized by Latinos, in Miami, the smorgasbord mention is not in vain. LOTS of FOOD,FUN, FARANDULA in this one!!  Go ahead and check out the schedule- I know you'll want to go.


The second conference is from a group I'm very happy and proud to be associated with- the Latina Lifestyle Bloggers Collective.  Ok si, BB is a mom/grandma and loves writing about her family, but let's be truthful here, my blog is mainly about life, the humor in it, and Babushka's sense of adventure so I'm very comfortable with these ladies.  By the way, you needn't be Latina or even female to join this very supportive collective.  Here's their Feibu page if you'd like to see their style.

 The Third Annual National Lifestyle Blogger Conference & Junket
From Blogger to Brand 

Taking place in California from April 25 - April 27, this is a conference with caché. There is space for  Only 100 bloggers so personalized attention in a non harried atmosphere is a priority.  Truly a different take from the mass production and craziness of other conferences, this is one to learn while relaxing and reflecting at the same time.  The details and sign up are here. 

For many bloggers- or those who are thinking of becoming bloggers, the expenses of travel and lodging for conferences, or maybe the time involved is not doable. Well, Babushka has found a conference that is doable because it's ONLINE!!  Que? JU SO FONII!!! You know BB wouldn't miss that one! Another, first, fun, and sure to be favorite.  The Blog Workshop - It's in May and BB will be already married and ready to focus on detailed, focused learning- in the comfort of home.  Oh my and Oh YEAH Join me here for a good online blogging howto/whereto/withwhoto experience.

Here's a video that'll explain a bit more:

We've got a busy,productive and fun time ahead of us My Beautifuls.
Now go and buy your dancing shoes and those comfort inserts-

Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.


  1. Hi there - nice to meet you!

    I actually refuse to travel to a conference because I don't want to be away from my family (never mind the expense). And I won't do online ones, either LOL. I work from home and between that and the blog, I am online more than enough :)

  2. I have never been to a conference but maybe in the future I might have to go to one. Last week I was at an online conference which was kind of fun.

  3. They never have any near by and costs a ton to fly the sky.

  4. I really enjoy conferences, particularly for the networking!

  5. So sad that they dont hold these type of conferences close to me :-(
    Thanks for stopping by Deezy Does It! (

  6. Great post! I'm looking forward to my first conference - sometime soon, I hope!
    I'm visiting you today from I Should Be Mopping the Floor. I hope you get a chance to stop by my blog and leave a comment, too!

  7. I've been to one conference and it was fun -but yeah, it's the expense and being away from family. I actually like the local blogger meet-ups for campaigns and such. They are pretty fun and informal.

  8. The conference on line sounds interesting! A lot to learn and connect with other bloggers too...

  9. I LOVE CONFERENCES! Meeting everyone I've met through social networking and blogging is so much fun!

  10. Thanks for all the tips about these conferences. I didn't know they have Latin focused conferences. So great!

  11. I'm looking forward to all the visitors.
    I so wish that Nebraska was near some bigger cities, so I could go to more conferences. I work full time, so it's hard getting away.

  12. I have never been to a conference, but they do sound like a lot of fun! Maybe if one is ever close to my house, I will surely attend!

  13. Very cool conference choices!

  14. I would totally love to go to a blogger conference...but maybe not all the way to US, unless somebody wants to sponsor me, eh?? :D

  15. I enjoyed reading this from Babushka.

    Very interesting. I've not yet been to a conference, but I would love to one day when I can afford to.

  16. Thanks Rosey for letting me guest post. I love going to conferences but I understand the cost factor involved. What I've learned at these events is to keep pitching, find the contact info on products you use and let them know you use them. Show your passion, and they might just show you the money! Also, don't forget the local companies,they too have dreams of expansion and might love sponsoring you. Get enough small sponsorships and you'll have for a full conference. Have fun; BB2U'all.
