What are they saying?
For me Blogtacular was hugely enriching. The networking and meeting people face to face is priceless and this has really helped increase my confidence as a blogger. The speakers are always inspirational and more importantly honest. I found this reality of blogging really significant and it was great to meet so many people who thought the same way.
My writing has really improved, I’m putting more thought into things, and more value on what I do. I’ve reached the final stage of a Blog Award and I don’t think I’d be there without my experience and takeaways from Blogtacular.
I didn’t hesitate when the early bird tickets were released. I snapped one up straight away.

Blogtacular is such a treat! I was spoilt for choice with all that was going on and came away feeling energised and so much more confident.
There is a real feeling of comradery and all the little bits of information you collect during the day mean you come away with an epic list of not only amazing new contacts, but resources and tips to get you blogging to your best!

Blogtacular has been the highlight of my creative calendar for the last two years- and I can’t wait to return next year! Spending the day developing skills and learning new ones amongst like-minded folks is invaluable. The whole event feels like such a treat to attend!

The Internet and Blogging can be a lonely and crowded world, especially when you’re just starting out. I chose to go to Blogtacular because I wanted to put a human face on my cyberspace, see if I was any good at networking and meet some of my favourite bloggers. Blogtacular met all of these objectives and more.
It’s mostly women, which I found incredibly empowering and so inspirational. It was heartening to hear that the biggest names in blogging had started somewhere, where I am, and learning from them. It’s a full on day, but so worth it – I’ve met some wonderful people, came away more inspired and feeling so…capable. I’m already looking forward to Blogtacular next year; I hope to see you there!

I signed up for Blogtacular because I love blogging and yet I was feeling the effect of how social networking has changed the blogging scene – both for my readers and for myself. I was craving community – other bloggers and creatives sharing their work and their experiences along the way.
What I found was a friendly, inspiring and passionate crowd of people with enough in common that it was easy to strike up a conversation regardless of what niche of blogging they inhabited. I came home with a bag full of cards that each represented a moment of connection, a conversation over lunch, or an exchange of “Oooh, me too!” between workshops. For people who have only attended Blogtacular virtually, I would say come along in person.
The speakers were fantastic and well worth the price of the ticket. The list of ideas to do straight away (I haven’t cleared the list yet!) took up two full pages in my notebook. The ideas and inspiration simmering away on the rest of the pages will keep me fresh and motivated for the rest of the year. Signing up for next year was the easiest decision ever!

Blogtacular brings a sense of purpose to Bloggers, a place where you can share ideas and creativity on an equal footing.
You won’t be asked to GO FIND THAT BRAND but be asked to find your blogging voice and embrace it. I adored Blogtacular – at last an event to learn, grow and smile.

If it’s your first Blogtacular then you may be nervous, but don’t worry because everyone else is and trust me, the other bloggers are the best bit about the conference. You will come away with new friends, inspiration and a new sense of credibility for what you are doing.

Blogtacular was an experience which is hard to put into words! A jam packed day full of inspiration. I mostly enjoyed the chance to meet fellow bloggers and to hear from speakers such as Grace Bonney and Fran Stone.
The brand opportunities were amazing! The photo booth and craft areas were also great fun and the whole day made you feel as though you were part of something really special.
