Great news everyone, I am registered on the TBEX 2016 conference, which takes place in Stockholm, Sweden. If you don’t already know what TBEX is, it’s a bloggers conference where training takes places and travel companies offer opportunities to bloggers.
TBEX is an extremely important conference in the travel blogging world. They usually offer three a year in different locations: North America, Europe and Asia. Stockholm is a great destination for the Europe conference and I am registered!
A Career Change for Teaching to Blogging
Many of you are aware that I’m making the tough decision to retire from my teaching career early, because of the negative impact it has had on my health. I will miss the kids, of course (I already do) but considering my Asthma and Cavernoma, I think that this decision is for the best.
My travel blog has kept me motivated and positive even in the tough times, and I am eager to make it work full time. Becoming a member of the Professional Travel Bloggers Association and registering for TBEX 2016 are a step in the right direction in my move towards a full time blogging career.
How you can Register for TBEX 2016
If you are a travel blogger who takes it seriously, I strongly recommend that you register for TBEX. The training and opportunities are well worth the registration fee of just $137. You can register here.
Don’t forget that if you are a member of Travel Blog Success, you get a 20% discount on your TBEX 2016 ticket. Also, prices go up after March, so be sure to book your ticket as soon as possible.
