Last week, it was announced that I was officially one of Blogalicious ’12 Brand Ambassadors. I was excited to see my big ol’ mug in their blog announcement highlight me and all the other butt-kicking, high-power, new media dominating divas. Check out the gang here!

Hold on, I didn’t tell you what Blogalicious was. It is one of the biggest blogging conferences held nationally for women of all backgrounds who are bloggers and social media influencers. At the conference, not only do guests walk away with tools to grow their blogs as businesses, but rich, new relationships and an experience to remember.  (PSST…They have vending opportunities available too that you must jump on NOW!)

Every Wednesday until the conference, being held September 28-30 in Las Vegas, Blogalicious will be hosting #BeUplifted tweetchats at 6pm PST. Follow @beblogacious and tune in to join in on hot discussions on thought leadership, digital influence, and best of all women really making an impact in blogging and technology. (Ambitious Diva’s by default!)

It’s also cool to participate in and share with you a “pin to win” contest for the conference. Pinterest users who participate will have the chance to be amongst the ones to win. Blogalicious will select two winners at the conclusion of the contest and give them tickets to Blogalicious Weekend 2012. Below are the
contest details and rules (we even have a Facebook invite so you can join and invite the persons you’d want to take with you if you win!
