Problogger Conference for non-attendees #pbevent


If like me, you aren’t attending the Problogger Conference this year and are feeling a bit left out reading all the posts on things ‘to-do’ in preparation for it, you are certainly in need of my post. This is a post for those of us who for some reason or the other *ahem* lack of funds *ahem* can’t attend PB Event 2014. The event of the year that sees all bloggers from Australia {and elsewhere?} networking, socialising, learning will have us green with envy partying along.

These are some tips for us non-attendees for this weekend:

Have a Twitter party: Who says we can’t party online? I’m sure all our lovely attendees will be dressed up to the nines and networking in their nautical outfits but we can party too. Via Twitter. And our theme can be Onesies! Oh yeah!

Stuff our faces: Every party has to have food. And not just finger food with fancy waiters going around. We will sit in our onesies and gorge on cheese, crackers, chocolate, ice cream, and any other take-away you like. Forks, knives and spoons optional.

Instagram away: While our lovely attendees will be instagramming and tweeting about the conference and post-party, we can instagram and tweet about our wonderful moments. Yup. Just what everyone wants — our lunches, our dinners, our snacks, our drive to the shops…all of it. {I think I do that already…should be easy!}

Use our imagination: As bloggers if there’s one thing we don’t lack, it’s imagination. If you visualise really, really hard, I’m sure we can picture ourselves sitting there in the QT hotel conference rooms listening to the likes of Mr Problogger himself or amazing bloggers like Eden and Chantelle. C’mon non-attendees, let’s play pretend! 😀

Skype in: Let’s just beg some of our fellow bloggers to skype us in at least for the networking events. In return, they will get our fabulous presence! 😀 Or maybe a bottle of wine sent their way. Any takers?

On a serious note though, I can’t believe it’s almost a year since the last Problogger event. Miranti texted me the other day reminding me of the same. All I can say is time flies!

I hope all you attendees have a lovely time and do spare some thought for the non-attendees. We will be with you in spirit I suppose! {Yeah, right!} I might just avoid social media over the weekend so as to not feel too envious!

Are you attending Problogger? Or like me, will you be spending it doing non-bloggy stuff?

Do share!

    Bugger, I don’t own a onesie! Ok I’ll join the non attendee party in my usual tracky daks, and flip through IG wishing I was in on all the fun 🙂

    Unbelievably I will be there! Only by the skin of my laptop screen membrane! I’ll remember my fallen comrades and tweet you all! AND be wishing you were all there x

    I would suggest we set up a web cam at the Friday party but suspect there would be protests from some of our attendees who expect to let their hair down a little 🙂

    Hope to see you next year!

      Can I just say you made my morning by leaving a comment? 🙂 And yes, certainly hoping to have enough savings for next year’s event.

    I’m not going either due to lack of funds but I most definitely will be there next, lemme tell ya! I’m totally up for a twitter party!

    On an unrelated, small-world note, I went to high school with Miranti!

      Oh my goodness…what a small world! I went to uni with Miranti! 🙂
      Hoping I can go next year too.

    Haha great plan! Perhaps an excuse to get a onesie too. For me it’s a double whammy as everyone’s talking about the GC and it’s making me miss home.Waaah!

      Exactly! My onesie camping idea isn’t really taking off yet! 🙂 Oh you must be pretty damn homesick. But you are still travelling…so I can’t be too sympathetic! 😛

    I’m not going either. Truthfully, if I really, really wanted to go I could find a way to make it happen. I think it just seems too overwhelming for me. Especially as I’m not sure that I even want to commercialise my blog. I’d just like to say hi to a few people and in a room of 500 or so pumped and ambitious bloggers I’d just end up in the corner. The twitter party sounds like fun, though.

      Oh it’s definitely overwhelming Ness but it was also interesting when I attended last year. I don’t have a niche and I think I felt some kind of pressure with so many niche bloggers. 🙂

    Well, I didn’t know I was missing anything until you wrote about it. How could you??!!!

    …LOL!!! But truthfully, I had no idea about that. Good tips for a non-attendees party, though 🙂

    Yey!!! And here I was feeling so left out! This is a WONDERFUL idea. I am also going to add 2 special events of my own to this blog party called ‘sleep’ and “napping’. It’ll be a blast! xoxox

    Another no-show here, so I will kick back absorb the strategies and enjoy everyone’s account of the event. But very determined to go next year.
