BlogFest is here! I’m super excited I was chosen to attend the IDEA World Fitness BlogFest with Sweat Pink this year! Yeahhh!!! Thank you so much, FitApproach, for sponsoring my registration!
IDEA World Convention is a huge convention devoted to fitness, nutrition and inspiration! There are 370+ sessions going on for 4 days, July 14-17th. The IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo features 600+ booths with the latest in workout equipment, programs, trends and products!
Last year, I got to attend IDEA World as an exhibitor with Momentum Jewelry. I’m lucky to be an ambassador for Momentum Jewelry and last year, Amy, the owner, invited me to help her at the booth. I was excited to promote a product I love and I got to meet fellow ambassadors, Tara and Carlee!
For 3 days, I was immersed in it all with zumba workouts going on nearby, cycling competitions at the booth next door and all of the fitness people who came by to check out Momentum. I got to check out the expo, too and try all of the goodies. I got to meet Natalie Jill who is a big fan of Momentum Jewelry. This year, I’m taking her class on Saturday! Woohoo!
It was at the event last year that I made the commitment to start my own blog. I met so many bloggers, made new friends and realized that I too, could share my experiences. Why not? There may be others out there who can learn something from my training and struggles. I always like to read other runners’ race recaps and now, maybe I can share my race reports. This is the place where I can share about products that I like and am trying out! I was excited and motivated. I started researching and working on it right away! And here we are, a year later and my blog anniversary is coming up on August 17th! Thanks to BlogFest, it gave me the motivation and boost I needed to start my own blog. Now I get to go to BlogFest! Yippeeee!!! Here’s what I’m looking forward to most:
- meeting other like-minded people and making new friends!
- finally meeting people who I’ve only interacted with on social media
- learning how to increase my social media reach
- learning how to work with brands
- learning new tips for blogging
- doing celebrity workouts with Jillian Michaels and Natalie Jill!
- trying out all of the fun stuff at the expo
It’s going to be 3 awesome days of fitness, blogging, social media, friends and fun! I’ll recap all that I’ve learned right here on the blog!
Your path, your pace, Tam
