Inspiration and Photos from Mom 2.0 Summit 2014 #mom2summit

Inspiring speakers, informative sessions, engaged sponsors, elegant parties, quality networking — Mom 2.0 Summit 2014 once again offered it all.

#mom2summit

It is not easy to choose which conferences to attend. As busy business owners, we bloggers don’t take handing over our time and money lightly.

But as professional bloggers, it is critical to get out and network, to learn and grow with each other and make important business connections.

Here at 5 Minutes for Mom, we strongly believe in helping one another and finding power in our community. We wouldn’t be where we are — or as happy and fulfilled — if it weren’t for the wonderful friends we have found in the blogging community. It is why we started the Ultimate Blog Party eight years ago — to help bloggers find and strengthen blogging relationships.

Dad bloggers don’t miss out on Mom 2.0 Summit either…

Due to scheduling conflicts, I have had to miss the last two years of Mom 2.0 Summit, and it killed me. Mom 2.0 is one of my favorite conferences. Laura Mayes and Carrie Pacini have impeccable taste and always provide a well organized, stunning conference experience. As well, the sponsors at Mom 2.0 Summit are always fantastic — they are truly interested in building quality professional relationships with bloggers.

I am so grateful that I was able to attend this year and Susan and I are already fighting over which one of us gets to attend next year. (We rarely attend conferences together, as one of us usually stays home to look after our kids and keep the ship running here at 5 Minutes for Mom.)

But don’t just take my work for it — I asked a few of my best blogging friends about their experience with Mom 2.0 Summit:

“This was my first Mom 2.0 conference and definitely not my last. I felt a much stronger connection to the blogging community and loved the small conference size. I came away inspired and engaged. If you are wondering what conference to spend your money next year, make it this one!” Stacie Haight Connerty, The Divine Miss Mommy

“Inspiring, emotional and creative. Mom 2.0 Summit never disappoints!” Amy Bellgardt, Mom Spark

“Mom 2.0 is a collective of brilliant minds and incredible talent. It’s a conference that truly raises the bar in this industry with the sponsors, agenda and locale. I know personally, as a third time attendee, I can honestly say that this is the one conference that leaves me feeling encouraged, inspired and thankful for the many incredible people that I’m honoured to call my friends.” Nadia Carriere, Child Mode

A perfect recap for a fabulous conference. It was so lovely meeting you and I’m glad you gave me a whole 5 minutes rather than 30 seconds. Some people are so stingy with their time. XO
