I am writing this post in exchange for a discounted conference ticket; however, all opinions are mine and mine alone.
So this year I knew I was going to limit my conferences to once that were local and/or ones worth traveling for. Today I am going to tell you about one that falls into both categories!! I am attending the SOFABU One day conference being held in NYC on June 20! I have worked with So Fab plenty of times in the past and they have such a great blogging community that I know I will be learning a ton!
