    Being a first year blogger, it seems that these conferences are only a dream away. I would love to attend Mom 2.0 Summit in Houston since it is local to me, but who knows.

  5. angie says:

    This is such a great list, jyl. Which are you attending?

  6. This is a great list! I’ll be going to Blissdom, Mom 2.0, BlogHer (and Evo of course :)
    I’d love to get to every one of them this year!

  7. Oh! I’m going to ALT too since it’s in my hometown — anyone else going? Excited for a day of skiing at Solitude as well!

  8. Love this list! Thanks for sharing.

  9. Barb says:

    Awesome list Jyl. Thanks. So far I am committing to Chicks Who Click, EVO and Blogher (also IZEAFest)

    Here is to some great 2010 conferences!

  10. Megan Smith says:

    There’s also Blogging While Brown, in June in Washington DC. http://www.bloggingwhilebrown.com/

    Thanks for this list.

  12. Great list! I knew about most of these, but there are a couple that are new to me. I love all the options and the focus on women and Moms (even though my Mom days are a bit behind me – maybe we should have a conference for GrandMas?? LOL)

    Here’s a sort of Mom/women’s conference: Blogpaws, for pet bloggers. Stats show that more women than men have pets and consider themselves Mommy bloggers to their furry four-legged kids. These devoted Moms (and some ‘dads’) are looking for a place to meet, learn, and connect and Blogpaws is it. April 9-10, Columbus, Ohio…

    Pet lovers, pet bloggers, brands and women in general are all invited. Hope to see some of you there.

  13. Emily H. says:

    Thanks for putting them all in one place! Perfect!

  14. Stephanie says:

    Thank you for this excellent “round-up.” Someday I hope to attend Blissdom and Mom 2.0…and Evo sounds intriguing.

    P.S. I’m selling my 2010 Mom 2.0 ticket for cheap if anyone is interested: http://metropolitanmama.net/2009/12/a-mom-2-0-story-why-im-opting-out-this-year/. :)

    P.P.S. I’d love to see a blogging conference come to Phoenix, AZ in 2011!

  15. MommaDJane says:

    Great list but you can’t forget IzeaFest! I loved that conference this past year and wouldn’t miss it again! I don’t think I’ll make Blissdom this year :( but I’ll try for EVO ’10 and BlogHer since it’s in NYC and I just love that city. South by Southwest would be fun too since it’s local but conferences add up, don’t they? I hope we get to see each other again this year!

  16. jodifur says:

    Thanks for such a fantastic list. I never knew half of these conferences existed!

  17. TONYA says:

    Oh if only I could get to them all. So far I’m only booked for BlogHer though

  18. niri says:

    I wish I could afford all of these, but takes too much money or time. SO aiming for BlogHer, Evo and Blogalicious. Is Type A Mom conference happening this year?

  19. Type A Mom will be announcing her date soon. We will add it to the list once she does! :)
