Hey everyone! I have some exciting news – I am going to be at to the Build Your Blog Conference this year in Salt Lake! Yay! I am super duper excited to be going this year to this 2-day conference.
I have already come up with a checklist of things that I need to bring, and I thought I would share it with you today 🙂
Cause I’m cool like that!
What you will definitely need to bring:
1. A bag
If you are going to be carrying around all your notes, food, swag, etc. You are going to need a good, big bag to hold it all. You can find a bunch of cute ones on Amazon or Target.
Sure, there might be food trucks or something like that – but you will never know when you will suddenly have a craving for some snacks! That’s why I normally bring pumpkin seeds, nuts, a fruit leather, etc. But you could also bring something like a lollipop, chocolate, or bacon – whatever you are into – I don’t judge!
3. A notepad/notebook
Why yes, you will be taking a bunch of notes! I can’t stand when people take bad notes. Actually, now that I think about it, maybe there will be a post tomorrow about taking good notes. (wink wink 😉 ) Some people in my family do this *cough Dad & Night cough* and it drives me batty!!! By the way, Night is my brothers code name. Unless you are my grandma or my aunt you will never know his true identity. Mwuahahahahahaha! But seriously, this is a must have!
4. Your Phone
Of course! You will totally need your smart phone to take pictures if you either 1. don’t have a DSLR camera or 2. don’t want to lug your DSLR camera everywhere. Plus you will probably need it for calling and texting. Or playing games. 🙂
If you are like me, you like to color code – so I use different colors to mark different important things. I will talk about it in tomorrows post. Plus you will need some extra pens if you are a really nice person and share with others who forgot/lost theirs.
If you are more modern and like to take notes with your iPad, bring it!!
7. Business Cards
Yes! You just met your blogger idol and she asks for your card. You want to have those on hand!
8. A firm handshake!
This isn’t something you pack but something you do need! Don’t be a slimy fish
and don’t shake to hard!
Here is what you SHOULD do:
What you might need to bring:
Don’t have bad breath!
2. A power strip
If you are sharing a room with 3-4 people there might not be enough plugs for you all, so bring a power strip just in case
3. A portable charger
Let’s say you forget a power strip, and the other people in your room called the 2 plugs first. Your phone is dead and you need to take pictures tonight! You sure will be glad you brought that portable charger!
4. DSLR camera
To take some awesome photos!
As a peace offering to the people you are staying with! You could maybe do a cute (but cheap) necklace or glasses, or a blanket to keep them warm.
7. Media Kits!
So that those awesome companies know that you are also super duper awesome!
