Amee wrote previously about Tips for a First Blogging Conference. But what do you do if your shy and worried you won’t get enough out of the trip?
While I’ve only attended 2 conferences, I have 3 tips that worked well for me (although people that don’t know me may have no idea that I was actually quite talkative):
1. Room with someone you’re comfortable with. If you will be sharing a room, make sure you are at least somewhat comfortable with your roommate. It’s necessary to have a place to relax at night. If you are with a complete stranger or someone with a completely different schedule, I believe it will just add more stress to your trip. It will also help to have someone you know to occasionally hang-out with throughout the conference.
2. Sit with new people. It is easier for us to sit with people we know or already have a relationship with. If you force yourself to sit with people that you’re not familiar with, you may find that you have something in common with them. I’m okay just listening to the conversation and taking it all in, but I do enjoy getting to chat with smaller groups of individuals.
3. Attend a smaller conference. When determining which conferences to attend, keep in mind the number of people in attendance. A smaller conference such as Save Up ’11 and Savvy Blogging Summit fit my personality better than a huge conference such a BlogHer. I am easily overwhelmed with 100 people, much less put me in a place with thousands of people.
