In the lesson they talked about connecting with the right connections while at Blogher. You will want to research who you want to meet? What speakers you want to hear speak? What brands do you want to connect with?
They also talked about where to do your research. Blogher.com is a great place to start. You can chat with other bloggers in the forum and research who you want to meet. On the Blogher website you can see who the sponsors are of the conference, who the speakers are to help plan your schedule.
If you are going to connect with brands, don't be afraid to contact them before you leave. Start working on the relationships you want to make before you leave. If you are going to connect with other bloggers, plan meet-ups before you leave.
I recommend that you take notes while doing your research for the conference. Keep them all in a spiral notebook and take it with you to the conference. With just a little research and planning your time at Blogher can be a huge success!
