Building New Friendships at BloggyCon13

One of the best things about working with bloggers is finally getting the chance to meet the brilliant people behind the keyboard face-to-face. Over the years, Step2 has proudly attended Blissdom three times, hosted an afternoon play date at BlogHer, and exhibited at Blissdom Canada. This year, we were thrilled to discover that Bloggy Conference was just an hour away from our headquarters, so we just had to make the drive to Sandusky, Ohio to check things out!

Bloggy Conference 2013

Hosted by the one-and-only Cedar Point (if you’ve never been there and you’re a roller coaster thrill seeker, this is the place for you!), Bloggy Conference gathered bloggers from across the nation on America’s roller coast.


In addition to learning about industry trends and gathering information on how to improve the Test Drive Blogger Program, we had the pleasure of meeting some incredible bloggers, including the voices behind GourmetbyJanae, Melanie Makes, Couponing With Rachel, Marla Murasko, Put A Little Umbrella In Your Drink, and more!

We look forward to continuing the Test Drive Blogger program in 2014. For information on how to apply to the Step2 blogger program, please visit the Step2 Facebook page in December.

Getting our bliss on at Blissdom’11

Blissdom Conference ~ Nashville ~ January 26-28, 2010

We will be heading to Blissdom’11 tomorrow for workshops and sessions that celebrate the lives of women all across the country. This is our first time attending, and we cannot wait to listen, learn, and bond with the other women in attendance.

We are looking forward to meeting many of the mommy bloggers we’ve gotten to know through their writing over the past few years. By attending, we hope to bring back a wealth of knowledge of how to better serve our customers and moms alike. Feel free to take a look at the schedule and let us know if there is anything you would like us to find out for you while where there.

Some of the fantastic speakers include Brené Brown, author of The Gifts of Imperfection: Letting Go of Who We Think We Should Be and Embracing Who We Are, Jennifer James, founder of the Mom Bloggers Club, and Scott Stratten, president of UnMarketing.

If you’ll be at Blissdom’11 this week, tweet us so we can meet face-to-face!
