U.S. Blogging Event Update


Hi everyone! Me and the other committee members haven’t written a post about next year’s blogging event in a few months. I wanted to give you an update on where we’re at with the event right now. We’re currently looking for a nice but somewhat reasonably priced place to host the event. Over the past few weeks, several hotels, restaurants and clubs in Chicago have been contacted for quotes. A couple of the committee members suggested moving the event up or back one week due to lodging and traveling costs. The costs seem to be a little bit more during the Labor Day holiday weekend (We were planning on having the event on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017). Some places are already booked for this day. We’ll let you know if the event date gets moved. Since we’re getting closer to the holidays, we’ll most likely do one more month-long poll in January. We want to know who’s really serious about attending. If you have any comments and/or suggestions, please feel free to leave them in the comments section. Thank you!

  2. Lol. Oh no! Are you sure she won’t be mad?? We’re changing it to Saturday, Aug. 26. If it makes you feel a little bit better, my son starts school that week. I know it’s not the same thing as a birthday.

  3. Awesome! I look forward to meeting you there! We did a poll a few months ago to see which city it should be held in. Chicago was chosen as the city by fellow bloggers. We’ll have another poll, the event details and location in January. Please stay tuned for it! 🙂

  4. Awesome Mack! We’re still looking for a place. We should have something setup by January. We’re still calling places to get quotes. We will also have the exact date in January.

  5. We are planning on meeting fellow bloggers in Chicago at a venue. It will happen sometime in late August or early-mid September. We will be doing a Poll in January to see who’s interested in coming.
