*GIVEAWAY IS OVER – BUT PLEASE FEEL FREE TO USE FRIENDS DISCOUNT SHARED BELOW!.
BlogHer as been a big part of the most “important” reason why I got involved in social media: Community! I joined in 2006 because I had pivoted from a career in a top consulting firm to starting my own business. Over the years I have gained the value of not only meeting a great community of social media entrepreneurs but also learning so much from BlogHer and the BlogHer conferences. That is why I am especially excited to attend BlogHer Pro 2013 as one of the Keynote Speakers on the Monetization: Brands & Bloggers Keynote Discussion with some fantastic fellow social media professionals including Ana Picazo of Finding BonggaMom, Jim Lin from Ketchum PR and Busy Dad Blog, and Sarah Penna from Big Frame.. BEST YET – I have a discount code and am giving away TWO BlogHerPro13 conference passes! Can you tell that I am excited to be sharing the fun with others?

The hardest thing for me is finding balance. I love blogging and the personal aspect of it. Don’t get me wrong, I put a personal, organic spin even on sponsored content; however, I tend to focus my efforts there. That way of writing pays the bills. I would love to find a balance and be organized enough where I could write more posts “just because.” All the while, still remaining a professional.

I’m having a hard time keeping up with social media. I’m not as social as I would like to be in real life, and I know it affects how involved I am in online social media. I could use some guidance on what would help me, not only for my blog, but personally. I don’t know that I can ever be comfortable enough to ever call myself a social media professional either, but I know that I need to at least try in order to help my blog and myself if this is the route I want to continue (and I do!). So, my question to you is how do I put myself out there without overwhelming my own “anti-social” persona. I don’t want to be someone I’m not, but at the same time, if I want to make friends and build lasting relationships with brands and other bloggers, I need to jump out of my comfort zone and step up my game. I just don’t know how. I hope this makes sense.

I would love to learn more about how to build lasting relationships with brands. I find that after a review/giveaway, a lot of times, it’s hard to find how to continue working together long term. Any ideas?

I would like to know about SM tools and tips to help with time management. I get overwhelmed sometimes with so much info and wanting to share but get nothing done.
I just moved to NorCal… and I heard great things about BlogherPro last year. Would love to attend to not only learn but to also network with those in the area. =)
