International Food Blogger's Conference 2017: September 29 - October 1


A few months ago, I was toying with the idea of returning to blogging after taking a hiatus.  One of the things that helped push be back to being an active blogger is the fact that the International Food Blogger's Conference (IFBC) will be in Sacramento September 29 - October 1.  Sacramento has gained fame for being America's Farm-to-Fork capital, so it makes it a natural fit to host the IFBC.    

Since I live in Sacramento, was a no-brainer for me to sign up.  I am registered and ready to participate!

I have agreed to publish at least three blog posts about the conference for a registration discount.  All opinions are my own (which is one of my favorite things about blogging!).  This is the first of three posts.  

I may not be very good at this food blogging thing, but I do have potential.  Or at least I think I have potential.  What do I have to loose from attending? A couple hundred bucks and a vacation day from my day job. What do I have to gain from attending?  So much!  The IFBC has a great program (check it out).  I am looking forward to:
  • Networking with other bloggers - very important for an introvert like me!
  • Learning how to make money from my blog. 
  • Embracing social media, which is somewhat difficult for this reserved Gen Xer.  
  • Improving my writing. 
  • Seeking opportunities that may be available for food bloggers.  
For those individuals coming to Sacramento, here is a list of restaurant recommendations from a local:
As well as a list of things to do in Sacramento (again, in no specific order):
It's not too late to register if you are interested.  Simply visit the IFBC's website for complete details.

I'm looking forward to meeting some new people in Sacramento!
