I am very excited and happy. Yes a rare occurrence due to the fact that I have not done anything on my to do list (this to do list is mainly housework and organsing stuff for kids )
However I did manage to do something I have wanted to do since experiencing Problogger in 2013.
Today I managed to secure a ticket to Problogger. If you don’t know what Problogger is, It is the biggest and most amazing blogging conference in Australia.
Why I wanted to go back:
- I loved it.
- It was an eye opener and I had a ball!
- Learnt so much
- Networked and met such amazing people
So with the idea that 2015 is the year to achieve. The year to progress and get things done in a professional sense.
Yes screw the housework (although I secretly wish that while I work away, my clone would be cleaning and doing all the things I loathe to do)
I had enough in my PayPal account and that made ticket buying easy. Also I was sitting at the computer when ticket sales were announced and was able to get a ticket while some were still left, at the time of booking there was only about 230 tickets left. Last year they sold out in about 30mins to 15mins. Yes crazy isn’t it! Being online at the right time is crucial!
I phoned the hotel to book a room and that is now organised. Although still waiting on my confirmation email. I chased this up but it is due to the fact that bloggers have kept the hotel staff very busy. I wanted to make sure that I had a room at the venue as this would have made things harder. I have been assured my email should turn up tomorrow. I hope so.
Two things are left to sort out
- Flights to the Gold Coast
- Car hire
I will of course use my wonderful car hire deal from Redspot Sixt to get me from the airport to The RACV Royal Pines on the Gold Coast.
If you are a brand, company and the like, and you have anything that might suit the blog please get in touch.
I need to help pay for my trip and to help hubby not feel upset about the outlay so far. Plus The Problogger event is a perfect time to get more eyes on your products and business. We can work something out if you would like to sponsor me.
Are you going to Problogger in August? If you are I will see you there! I cannot wait. Not only will I be learning a great deal, I will be kid free for a while.
Let me know if you are going and we can meet up.

I will be there! It will be great to see you! In yet to get accommodation at the moment because the customer service team are run off their feet! Hoping they call me soon so I can get a room! I’m bringing my 1 year old but she will stay with my husband in the room. 🙂

Yes the poor staff at the hotel. They are very busy. I’m going on my own. My mum is going to mind the twins. It will be great to see you at the conference and cannot wait to learn more.

I’m sorry to hear about your back and spine. I hope all goes well and things get better. I did not go last year due to some uncertainty with us, but decided to go this year. Things have lined up well for it and I thought if I did not strike while I can I would not go. I will do in depth posts so that you can learn from my notes. I hope that will help. I hope you go next year. Thanks so much for your comment and I hope you feel better soon. Suzanne
