Announcing a NEW event for the creative blogging community of Seattle!
School House Craft presents a fun and informative one-day “Blogger’s Summer Camp” coming up on Friday, June 14, 2013 at the Mt. Baker Community Club from 10am to 3pm.
We’ve put together panels of some of our favorite PNW bloggers and we’ll be asking them all about how they got started, their advice for creating a solid brand, the lessons they’ve learned about building an audience, how they manage their blog / life balance, and of course, tips on making money with a creative blog.
You’ll have a chance to ask your own questions during the each panel’s Q&A sessions, participate in some informative roundtable discussions with our experts, and connect with your peers with some easy “get-to-know-you” (aka: networking) activities throughout the day!
The best part? Registration is only $45 per person and includes the entire day’s program along with a healthy lunch buffet that will include vegan, omni, and gluten-free options. Yum!

PANEL I: How to Make Time to Blog – creating a blog / life balance
Finding the time to manage your growing blog and have a balanced life can be quite a challenge for most bloggers. Between blog post scheduling, guest bloggers, photograph editing, and seeing your loved ones, it can all become very overwhelming very fast.
During our first panel discussion, we’ll have some real talk with some of our area’s most experienced bloggers and web professionals. We’ll talk about the available tools to help you manage your blog and also find out their answers to the eternal question, “How do you do it all?” Come prepared to ask your own questions about managing your own blog/life balance for our Q&A session.
Panel II: The Myths and Realities of Monetizing Your Blog
We’ve all heard the promises: “Make money with your blog!”, “Buy our system for guaranteed blogging success!”, “Convert your followers into GOLD!”
The truth is, most of the things we hear on the internet about making money with your blog are just plain not-true for many creative bloggers. So what does it really take to make money with your blog? During this panel discussion, we’ll ask some of our favorite bloggers about their experiences with selling advertising space, affiliate programs, promoting products for profit, and the truth behind some of the more prevalent myths floating around the internet about monetizing your blog. Be sure to bring a list of questions about making money with your own blog for the Q&A session with our panelists!
