Disclosure: My attendance at the Blog Brûlée is partially sponsored. I have received a registration discount for my attendance in exchange for writing this pre-event post. Opinions expressed are my own, I was not compensated for my time.
This weekend I am embarking on a first of its kind, blogging for dietitians, adventure – I’m attending Blog Brûlée: Setting Fire to Better Blogs Conference ! It’s kind of like I’m heading back-to-school – but in a super fun blogger kind of way.
Here’s the math (back-to-school, remember?):
20 dietitian bloggers +
4 nutrition communications dietitians who founded this brand new conference +
1 really cool backdrop, Vermont’s Smuggler’s Notch +
10 top notch speakers on everything from food styling, food photography & branding +
8 amazing sponsors =
1 excited dietitian who is honored to have been asked to attend this event!
My back-t0-school supplies are ready:
Since I take all my food photos on my iPhone, my phone will be charged and the charger will be handy. Follow my photos on Instagram.
I am still a person who loves to write things down, so I packed my journal and my favorite pen. Don’t worry, I will share a ton on Twitter too!
My number one strength according to Strength Finders 2.0 is Learning – yep, that will be packed for sure.
A hunger for fantastic food from some of my favorite food and beverage sponsors like Cabot Cheese (my favorite cheese hands down – disclosure, I’m a cheese board blogger), Davidson’s Safe Eggs (using these pasteurized eggs makes me feel good about sharing cookie dough with my kids), Welch’s (favorite grape juice and jelly since I was a kid), Kashi (tasty cereals that fill me up for breakfast) and The Soyfoods Council (last year I stepped into the soybean fields of Iowa on a sponsored trip to learn more about the versatile soybean and brought some recipes home to share with my family). Can’t wait to learn and taste more!
- And I can’t forget an enthusiasm for hanging out and learning from some of the smartest, most innovative dietitians in the country!
I am still in awe that I will be spending time with the best nutrition communications dietitians in the biz, learning a ton of new things to set my blog on fire…plus wine and cheese tastings and even a chocolate class? It’s going to be a fun weekend.
I will share highlights after the event on my blog – stay tuned!
