Se7en Online: Learning from the ProBlogger Event Without Actually Being There… #PBEvent

September 20th, 2013 · 8 Comments

I am only going to say this once… I love The Problogger event, can’t help myself… I love everything about it. I love following the months of preparation, I love the build up of tweets towards the event… This past weekend was the Problogger Event in Queensland Australia… and I have to confess that I spent vast chunks of time following every detail on Twitter and Instagram!!! And why oh why would a South African blogger be interested in an Australian blogging conference?


You may well ask!!! That’s the thing… blogging isn’t defined by location… it is global, and it is fun… not to mention I am an unabashed fan of the work that the Problogger has done for blogging all over the world. I have literally dozens of Australian blogging friends… that I have been following since I started blogging and the idea that once a year they all meet together to learn how to be more awesome at blogging… seems like the perfect place to meet up with them and say hi!!! Every year, when the Problogger Event comes around I feel more than a twinge of sadness that Australia is so so far away… this year was the option of the Virtual Pass… I let it pass… $250 (Australian or not) is lot of cash wherever you are and if you are living on South African Rands then – just no!!!


That being said I was able to follow heaps of bloggers, interact and find new bloggers to follow… Just by following #PBEvent on twitter I could see the amazing bits and pieces that were being taught and learnt at the event. If you are following a blogger event, then when the event ends keep on following… because after the haze of getting home, and the heavy sighs and recovering, all good bloggers do what they do best and they start to post. There has been so much to learn and tons of brilliant blog posts shared from the Problogger Event this past week… dozens and dozens of posts… and here are my favourites!!!

    Good to hear that virtual ticket holders are getting some value out of it. I’m slowly working through the sessions to catch everything I missed.

    Jade, How brilliant of you to stop by!!! I have to say even on the far side of the world the #PBEvent was quite exhausting… so much to learn over such a short period of time – not to mention all the action happened in the middle of the night… Very fun, very exciting and honestly, even from the far side of the world I just can’t wait for the next one!!! Hope you are having a great week!!!
