So apparently there is such a thing as a blogging conference. Who knew? I certainly didn’t. But they exist. Or at least one does. I was reading Red Lips and Academics, one of the blogs I follow, and the author, Laura, wrote a post where she mentioned she attended the Bloggers in Sin City conference this year. It sounds fascinating.
I’m really glad I stumbled across her blog post, because otherwise I would have no idea. Not that I’m necessarily going to go. But I will definitely think about it, since it seems like a great opportunity. And a lot of people I know don’t really understand my obsession with blogging or how I can blog as much as I do. I was talking to this guy the other day and I told him I blogged and he asked me what I blogged about. I said I blogged about my life. And he asked me if my life was really interesting. And I said no. And he was left confused and I didn’t feel like explaining myself. It would be cool to meet people who shared that passion, who just understood and didn’t judge.
There’s a contest held by Lucky Bloke where you can win entry to the conference next year. That would really cool, since the expenses are what would prevent me from going. The event is capped at only 60 people, and apparently some register super early. It’s in May, so maybe I’ll forget about it by then. But right now, it seems like an amazing opportunity. Lucky Bloke is a condom subscription service which donates 10% of its sales to urgent humanitarian causes, which is pretty cool. Anyone in need of condoms should check out their site, because as your needs are met, the needs of others will be met too. The tagline on there is “Have more sex and save the world”, which I thought was pretty clever. They offer other things too, like aphrodisiac chocolates and massage oils. How very fitting that the conference takes place in Vegas. And how awesome that Lucky Bloke is giving away one of the limited spots at the conference.
I’ve been wanting to go back to Vegas, it’s been a while since the one and only time that I went. This would be a good excuse to do so. And then I could tell people that I was attending a conference, like it was for some important business meeting. Or you know, I could just plan a trip there anyway. You don’t really need an excuse for Vegas, do you? But it would be very cool if I had one, and even cooler if I obtained it by helping to promote condoms.
