Blog Conference Just Exploded!

Have you heard about that little blog conference we have been working on that is set for June 10-12? Well, that little blog conference that was a yummy peanut butter and jelly kind of conference just became a big time birthday cake kind of conference! Because.......

The phenomenal social media company Collective Bias has signed on as presenting sponsor for the Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged Conference. They manage brands such as Elmer's Glue (& their trifold science project style display boards!), Truvia, ConAgra Foods and many others. Specifically, they have an invitation-only "exclusive community designed to connect influencers, brands and retailers" called Social Fabric and work with thousands of women and bloggers nationwide.

We will be announcing the lineup of workshops in the coming days, and ladies, you will most certainly want to attend. Let's just say "ROCKIN'". We even received a nod from SheBlogs about the event recently - read more here.

Here are all the delicious details:
The Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged (#AWBU) Conference will be held June 10 - 12 at the Ozark Natural Science Center in Huntsville, Arkansas! This mini-conference is a networking retreat and informal blogging conference all rolled into one. The cost is $199/person (a weekend getaway including two nights of lodging, meals, speakers, networking, relaxing and *ahem* beverages).

The ultimate goal for the weekend is to unplug. Feel free to bring those laptops, chi chi tablets and smartphones if you have separation anxiety, but don't plan to spend any time with them. You won't want to with the speakers, activities and old fashioned chatting you'll cram into every spare minute. 

So, all you Arkansas, Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma, Timbuktu or wherever you are from gals, sign up today before it is too late!!!! We can't wait to meet you!

The registration deadline is May 31, 2011, and space is limited! Please sign up as soon as possible to reserve your spot.

For additional information, please feel free to contact Arkansas Women Bloggers Founder Stephanie Buckley at or ONSC Executive Director Beth Stephens (479-633-7619 or

  1. I so wanted to attend! But hubby will be out of town that weekend, and unless DHS gives waivers for children left home alone, I will have to be caretaker for the weekend. Have a great event!!

  2. Isn't asking people to 'unplug' at a blogger's conference a bit like asking photographers to come to a shoot without a camera?

  3. I hope I can make it next year, this year just isn't going to happen. :(

  4. If I wasn't nursing right now, I totally make a road trip out of it. Next year!
