I love pretty much everything about New York City. It’s a city that always feels so alive, vibrant, and I get really giddy whenever I’m there. The shows. The quick moving pace. It’s magic for my soul. In July of 2015 I attended Blogger Bash in NYC. Now prepare yourselves to be shocked… This was my very first ever out-of-town blog conference. Isn’t that just so hard to believe? I’ve been blogging since 2008 so one would think that I’ve been to plenty of conferences. Not so. I’m not sure why I never attended before but I’m now a changed woman. I have such dandy memories of Blogger Bash 2015. So much so that I’m going back this year for Blogger Bash 2016. I love New York and I fell in love with Blogger Bash.
Memories of Blogger Bash 2015 and why I’m going this year.
I’m so excited to be attending BloggerBash 2016 in Manhattan this July. Last time around I met some really amazing bloggers and made friendships to last a lifetime.
I met Sara of Cook With 5 Kids and Tabatha of A Half Dozen Life last year because we were staying in the same hotel. We shared Ubers together, attended events together, and had such a fun time together. They are one of the big reasons why I wanted to attend BBNYC again this year!
Memories of Blogger Bash 2015 and The Blue Man Group.
Pretty sure you are gonna get hit with some pureed banana vomit!
But you will survive, you will have fun, and you will want to see the show again. Because it’s really all about the good company anyway.
Blogger Bash is one dandy bash. So much to see and explore. There’s also informative speakers and ample amounts of time to connect with brands. Perhaps the best opportunity to connect with specific brands is during the Speed Pitching which I’m excited to be part of this year. Think Speed Dating but with brands! These brands are ones that are geared towards you and your blog type.
Another opportunity to connect with brands is quite the event: Sweet Suite. This is just a grand night of play!
At Sweet Suite you get to wander around to the various tables and meet with toy brands. You get to see new concepts before the rest of the public, talk to brands about working with them, and try out the toys. Basically you get to be a kid again playing with all the toys! Such a fun night and I cannot wait to meet/see all the toy brands represented for 2016. Particularly Jakks because this generous box from them arrived on my doorstep a couple of days ago.
I realized that I really need to sweep the front porch…
What’s in the box?
My box contained 2 items for the little guys in my life and then a surprise gift set for our little lady.
A monster truck that can really pull up to 100 lbs. and a TMNT riding a skateboard that’s remote control?! Yep. Can you believe that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back? So much a blast from the past of my childhood. Or really my little brother’s childhood but I remember those turtles and how coveted they were.
Stay tuned because I’m going to do a separate unboxing of the Max Cliff Climber and Skateboarding Mikey right here on the blog. You’ll be able to see both in action on video! What about the surprise items in the box? For that answer you’ll have to wait until mid July when I’m at Blogger Bash 2016. The surprise items aren’t released yet and are totally hush-hush. In fact the big announcement of what it’s all about will be made at Sweet Suite! All in due time. All in due time. Until then feel free to follow Jakks on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.
Now I know that you really want to attend Blogger Bash 2016 after seeing how dandy this bash truly is. Fortunately I have a really great rate for you to do just that! Just go HERE to receive a $60 discount on your Blogger Bash ticket! That’s a dandy deal on a really fun blogger conference that you will definitely NOT want to miss.
Did I mention already that Blogger Bash 2016 is being held on a BOAT in Chelsea Pier? I didn’t? Well it is! How many times will you have the opportunity to attend a blogger conference on a yacht? That’s why this is for sure THE year that you do not want to miss.
