Why You Should Go To Blogtacular

I’ve been blogging for a while now, first over at Little Squish, and now here but always about sewing and creativity. This year I made a leap of faith and booked an early bird ticket for Blogtacular, not really knowing what to expect or even if (as a hobby blogger) I’d get lots out of it.

Of course, if you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that Blogtacular was this weekend and I absolutely make no apologies for the number of photos and stories I shared! I had the absolute best time, even if I was anxious about travelling down to London and not knowing anyone. I’m actually feeling pretty proud of myself, I managed to travel alone, catch the the Tube, share a room with someone I’d never met and talk to loads of people. Go me!

I think I could go on for days about why Blogtacular was such an amazing experience and worth every penny, but instead I’ve summed it up for you in a handy infographic:


Thank Yous!

I just want to give a massive thank you and round of applause firstly to Kat, the brains behind Blogtacular. She is amazing!

    It sounds like you had a good time and met some like minded people. I really wanted to go but I only heard about it recently when the person running it was interviewed on a podcast.

      Definitely check it out next year! If you like podcasts, there is actually a Blogtacular one hosted by Kat (who you heard interviewed); I find it really interesting 🙂

    Ah this is such a fab post, it was my first Blogtacular although I have done many events and this was just incredible, I think if you are a creative them it is just the perfect way to make that creative mind ticking x

      Definitely. I’ve wanted to go since the first one, but always talked myself out it because of nerves and not feeling like a “proper” blogger. I’m amazed at how much I learned and I’ve got so many ideas now!

  5. 14th June 2017 / 9:43 pm

    Oh that sounds amazing! I’d heard good things about Blogtacular but never thought about going before, maybe next year!

      I’d recommend signing up for their mailing list and trying to grab an early bird ticket! 🙂

    Loved reading this, I’ve yet to go to a blog conference. I’ve been blogging for 3 years but never had the time. Maybe next year?

      Definitely sign up for their mailing list and consider it. I learned loads!

  7. 15th June 2017 / 8:24 am

    I haven’t heard of Blogtacular but you are definitely making me want to go! I think I would be apprehensive as, like you, I don’t consider myself a “full-time” blogger

    • Toria

      I’m amazed at how much I got out of it tbh, I learned so much! I thought everyone else would be full-time bloggers, but that wasn’t the case.

  8. 15th June 2017 / 6:56 pm

    It sounds like a fun event. Glad to hear the food is good as that can sometimes be a let down at some events.

    • Toria
      16th June 2017 / 7:20 pm

      Oh my goodness the food was AMAZING!

    I love blog conferences for the chance to meet like minded people and the opportunity to learn something new

      15th June 2017 / 9:47 pm

      Are there any you’d recommend? 🙂

  10. 15th June 2017 / 10:32 pm

    I love blog conferences as I always leave feeling so inspired, although I have only been to Britmums and Blogon . I am not going to any this year but I love the sound of blogtacular and have heard such great things about it x

    • Toria
      16th June 2017 / 8:43 am

      I’ve heard of Britmums although it isn’t very relevant to me, I think, but I haven’t heard of Blogon so I’m going to go have a look at that 🙂 Blogtacular is definitely worth checking out!

      You’ll have a great time! I was really nervous about going to Blogtacular but I needn’t have worried.

  11. 16th June 2017 / 10:51 pm

    I’m putting this on my must attend list for next year. I really want to meet other bloggers and this is the only blog conference I’ve heard consistent good things about. Especially on the friendliness side of things. I saw some of your instagram pictures. It looked like such a fun event. xx

      It really was amazing, I’d certainly go again 🙂

  12. 17th June 2017 / 7:03 pm

    It sounds like a wonderful day. I love the infographic style of review.
    I’m hoping to attend some blogging conferences next year.
