Who Wants To Go To BlissDom Canada 2013? FULL CONFERENCE PASS #BlissDomCA #Giveaway

Posted by
/ / 159 Comments

BlissDom Canada.  Those are two words that evoke extreme excitement in the minds of Canadian Bloggers and Social Media lovers from all across our great nation.  The mere mention of Blissdom Canada over any social media network can lead to a frenzy of tweets, retweets, likes, shares and pins within minutes.  BlissDom Canada is THE Queen Of All Social Media Conferences in Canada.  BlissDom Canada is to Bloggers what the Stanley Cup is to Canadian hockey fans. Really. Just ask any Blogger you know.

From the homepage of the BlissDom Canada website:

Our All-Canadian planning team is super busy planning out the event you told us you REALLY want. We’re back to two full days of workshops, networking, learning and mapletastic Bliss. We’ve secured a fabulous venue with space to roam (and pamper) as well as space to learn. We’re planning sessions and content and social events that will really have you energized, focused and ready for your next challenge. So the only question left is: Are you ready to Do Something Amazing? Get set for BlissDom 2013!

Sounds pretty fun-tastic, doesn’t it?

Back in April of this year, I sat glued to my laptop the day tickets for BlissDom Canada 2013 were put up for sale.  I wanted so badly to attend my first BlissDom Canada conference that I just had to get my hands on a hot little Bliss ticket as soon as they were released.  As crazy as it sounds, the minute I hit “confirm” and received that prized email telling me I was now in possession of a ticket to BlissDom Canada 2013, I felt a wave of total “bliss” wash over my body.  I was going to BlissDom 2013!! Woo hoo!!

I was SO excited that I couldn’t wait to get this button posted on my blog:

BLISSDOM2013BLISSDOM2013BLISSDOM2013BLISSDOM2013BLISSDOM2013

In June I heard that the organizers of BlissDom Canada 2013 were hitting the road! To add to my anticipation and excitement, the BlissDom Canada Road Trip was making a stop here in Ottawa.  It was a “must-attend” event as not only would I get to meet the fabulous organizers, Shannon and Jennifer, I’d get the chance to meet up with some of my friends and fellow Bloggers from the Ottawa area who would also be attending BlissDom.  I was so energized after this “Tweet Up” that I wrote a post about it.

THEROADTO#BLISSDOMCA

Fast forward 5 months, and well, my “bliss” has fizzled out.  Why?  Because I recently found out that I won’t be able to attend BlissDom Canada 2013 after all.  As they say, life sometimes gets in the way of the best laid plans.  And so now, life has gotten in the way of my plans for BlissDom Canada.

So, after checking with BlissDom Canada’s lovely Shannon (Principal and Community Engagement), it is with a heavy heart I am officially giving away my BlissDom Canada 2013 full conference pass.

You heard me.  I’m GIVING AWAY my BlissDom Canada 2013 FULL CONFERENCE PASS!! At my “early bird” price I got it at, that’s a $383 value!!

This BlissDom Canada 2013 (in Mississauga, Ontario) full conference pass gives you access to any/all parts of the conference running from Thursday October 3rd – Sunday October 6th. Click here to see what’s happening at the conference.

For those of you who have been longing to attend THE social media conference of the year…here’s your chance!!  One lucky Canadian Blog House Reader is going to win this “chance of a lifetime” (Ok maybe I’m going a little overboard here but, for all you Bloggers and Social Media fan-atics, going to BlissDom Canada could literally change your life).

Already got yourself a ticket to BlissDom Canada 2013?  How about entering for a friend or family member who would love to attend the conference with you?  Who knows, if they win, maybe they’ll give you a bit of a “BlissDom Finders Fee” for introducing you to the online world of Social Media Bliss.

The only thing I ask of you, my wonderful readers, is to please share this giveaway via all your social media channels.  I want to use this as an opportunity not only to make this a great giveaway, but to spread the word about this fabulous social media conference.  I want to make sure BlissDom Canada comes back in 2014, bigger and better than ever! (PS…I’m being selfish here…I want to attend BlissDom Canada in 2014!!)

For my friends and fellow Bloggers who will be attending BlissDom 2013, I wish you a weekend of great fun, valuable learning, and wonderful IRL chats.  I will be living vicariously through your Twitter Tweets and Facebook Shares!

Good luck…and see you in 2014!!!

    I promised myself last year that I would get “my bliss on” in 2013 ..I have been unemployed since April and just could not do it financially-I would love the opportunity to go and share my passion with all those wonderful ladies!
    Thank you so much for the opportunity!
    Tracy

    • September 21, 2013

      Sandy

      I’m so sorry to hear about you being unemployed, Tracy 🙁 That definitely puts a damper on any plans like BlissDom. Here’s hoping you have a much better 2014 and can make it to Bliss next year..like me! Thanks for entering 🙂

    I loved this conference last year, but unfortunately this year, being home with a baby, it just isn’t in our budget. I would love to win a pass. Thanks for the giveaway!

      Sandy

      Congrats on the new baby! Yes, babies bring whole new expenses so not as much $$ for things like conferences. Glad you got to go last year. Thanks for entering!

    • September 20, 2013

    Having only attended one blogger conference ever, I feel there is still so much I can learn from the brands and bloggers. What excites me is the people I can meet, the tips and information pertaining to blogging and building relationships with brands and bloggers, and the general atmosphere. 🙂

    • September 12, 2013

      Sandy

      I was at that same one, Freda, and that was my first. It was full of all you mentioned. I love how you mention the general atmosphere…it is always so GREAT 🙂 Thanks for entering!

    I’ve had the pleasure of being at two Blissfom conferences, but it wasn’t in the budget this year. I always learn so much, but the best part in connecting in person with people you’ve met on line!

      Sandy

      I’m glad you’ve been able to attend past conferences, Jenn. That darn “budget” gets in the way for so many of us! Thanks for entering 🙂

    Brandy

    I am so sorry you are not able to attend Blissdom this year. Like you, I am once again hoping to get to Blissdom Canada 2014. (I have been hoping to find my “bliss” since I started blogging in October 2011.)

    It is very generous of you to giveaway your pass to one lucky reader!

    I have never been to a blogging conference and think it would be a wonderful learning opportunity. Plus, I would LOVE to meet everyone in the blogging community that I have connected with via social media.

    • September 8, 2013

      Sandy

      Thanks so much, Brandy! Wow…I didn’t realize you have never made it to a SM conference yet. Here’s to 2014 and both of us being able to attend and meet up at BlissDom Canada!! Thanks for entering 🙂

    What excites me- just a chance to connect with the amazing blogging community again! Blissdom is summer camp for bloggers- laughter, fun, activities… maybe we will even go canoeing!

    • September 8, 2013

      Sandy

      Julie you are so funny! “Maybe even canoeing!” And I love the idea of Bliss being like summer camp – it sort of is 🙂 Thanks for entering!

    Misfit Momma

    I already have a ticket, but winning yours would allow me to sell mine and use that money to pay for my transportation – which would mean I’d actually be able to go! What excites me the most about the chance to attend Blissdom Canada is the opportunity to mingle with people who don’t think a blog is a waste of time and all the new information I would be able to learn!

    • September 8, 2013

      Sandy

      Hopefully you’d be able to sell it Misfit Momma…that would certainly help with the other expenses. If not, maybe you could take someone with you to help you with the expenses 🙂 Yes I love that part…being with people who don’t think blogging is a waste of time. Thanks for entering!

  46. September 7, 2013

    Elizabeth L

    It would be a great chance to meet up with friends and make new ones, learn some new things to help my blog and to network!

    • September 7, 2013

      Sandy

      You are so right, Debbie. Newbies can learn so much from Bliss. I absorbed so much info from my first SM conference. The great thing is that, no matter how many conferences you attend, you will always come away learning more 🙂 Thanks for entering!

    As a new blogger, I am making new discoveries daily and am fascinated by the exciting opportunities social media offers. I have grown tremendously in just a few months and the potential for growth at an actual industry event makes me positively giddy.

    • September 7, 2013

      Sandy

      Hehehe! I love your excitement and enthusiasm, Olena! BlissDom is a must for someone like you. You sound like you would absorb so much good info and take away so much from an event like this. If you don’t make it this year…make sure to next year!! Thanks for entering!

    • September 7, 2013

      Sandy

      Thanks so much for saying so, Jen. I know for a fact that the group of people that go to BlissDom are all so great that any one of them would do the same thing. That’s really what I love about Bliss..the kindness, generosity and sharing. It’s like one big happy family! I truly hope you get to meet your online friend!! Thanks for entering!

    I would love to meet all the people I follow and learn how to blog as well as they do.

      Sandy

      There will be so many great Bloggers at BlissDom…you can’t help but learn a ton of stuff there 🙂 Thanks for entering, Elaine!!

    This contest is so bittersweet…it’s so generous of you to give away your ticket, but it’s also sad that your “bliss” won’t be fulfilled this year. If I won, I’d love the opportunity to learn from – and be inspired by – all my blogger friends…and get to know those I’ve never met IRL.

    Thanks for this wonderful opportunity, Sandy! Sending you good vibes/karma that you’ll be able to attend next year. 🙂

    • September 7, 2013

      Sandy

      Thanks so much for your kinds words, Lisa…and the good vibes and karma..love that 🙂 You’re right…this giveaway is very bittersweet but, as I’ve already learned today, it’s more sweet than anything. This has already given me the opportunity to “meet” many new bloggers I didn’t even know existed before today. That to me is very cool! I hope that you get to this conference either via the giveaway or on your own, Lisa..I know that you are someone who would absolutely love it 🙂 Thanks for entering!

    Tammy B

    I am most excited about the workshops and speakers and of course seeing friends and fellow bloggers IRL. This would be a great learning experience for anyone and a great break from my daily life.

    • September 7, 2013

      Sandy

      You are so right, Tammy! Bliss is full of great experiences and is definitely something that many consider a little “me time”. Thanks for entering!!

  59. September 6, 2013

    Steph

    To meet all the bloggers in person!

    • September 7, 2013

      Sandy

      That’s a VERY good reason, Steph 🙂 Thanks for entering!

    Jenna Em

    Sandi, I’m so sorry you won’t be going! I really enjoyed finally spending some time with you at She’s Connected last year.

    But on a different note, I still don’t have my own Blissdom ticket. Early on I had started looking for a sponsor, but my search got sidetracked with my recent move.

    I will share your contest on my Facebook and Twitter.

    • September 7, 2013

      Sandy

      Thanks so much, Jenna! I loved meeting you at SC last year and was really hoping to meet up with you again this year. I can certainly understand why things haven’t happened for you in regards to Bliss – you’ve been busy!! Congrats on your move and I hope you and your family are enjoying your new home. Thanks for entering 🙂

    I am sad you won’t be there!
    The most exciting thing for me is seeing friends and learning from the experts

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Thanks Katie..me too 🙁 I’m so glad I had the chance to meet and hang with you and your sweet little guy at SoCap though. Here’s to meeting up with you again in 2014! Have fun with all our other friends! Thanks for entering 🙂

    Barb Houser

    I would LOVE to attend Blissdom Canada 2013 and would love a chance to win a ticket! My babies have just started school, and I am ready to dive in headfirst to learn more, and grow my businesses. It would be a dream to expand my knowledge and experience by bumping heads with other like-minded business women. I believe in networking, social media and blogging, but need a push to put myself out there! This would be huge for me, and for the women in my life to be able to share in and learn from the experience if I were to go! Thank you for this opportunity to make it happen for someone else, your generosity will be appreciated by the lucky winner!!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Great response, Barb!! Your enthusiasm is big and it shines through in your response. You are so right about all of that and I can tell you are someone who would greatly benefit from attending BlissDom. Many thanks for what you said, I appreciate it 🙂 Thanks for entering!!

    Brenda A.

    I am most excited to learn more about how to get my blog off the ground. To be surrounded by the Canadian creme-de-la-creme of the blogging and social media world would be so valuable!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Wow…couldn’t have said it better myself, Brenda! It’s a very valuable conference and well worth the moola 🙂 You’ll definitely find a lot of top-notch Bloggers and Social Media at Bliss! Thanks for entering!!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Thanks for saying so, Sarah 🙂 Other than the fact that I’m super sad I cannot go…I’m so happy I can help someone else get there who may not have otherwise gone. Thanks for entering!

    MyBitsandBleeps

    If I actually get to go, what excites me the most is getting caught up in all of the excitement of going. .. Then of course meeting up with my blog friends and meeting all of the brands.

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      The excitement and lead up to Bliss is half the fun 🙂 I totally agree, MyBitsandBleeps. Meeting everyone there is such a big part of it too….and one of my fave parts! Thanks for entering!

    Brandy

    Having the opportunity to meet with most all of my social media friends in real life would be amazing.

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Speaking from experience at a couple of other conferences and events, I have loved meeting every one of my online friends I’ve had the chance to meet so far 🙂 Thanks for entering, Brandy!!

    Jenn

    Would be thrilled to win!! I have never been to a blogging conference. The pocketbook is a little tight so with a very heavy heart, I was unable to purchase a ticket but have been entering every contest I can to try and win a ticket and staying positive that lady-luck will help me out. haha!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Good for you, Jenn…you can’t win if you don’t try!! I certainly hope you make it to Bliss. I can totally relate to the tight pocketbook issue (gulp!) but I went for it at the time because to me…Bliss is worth every penny. Thanks for entering!!

    I was going to say “Hanging out with you” but we’ll just have to make other plans. I’m looking forward to meeting other people just like you; kind, generous, supportive, engaging, informative, positive, the list goes on. You will be there in spirit.

    Besos, Sarah

      Awww Sarah..you actually made me tear up!! Thanks for saying all that – exactly what I think of you 🙂 I will very much miss “hangin” with you but I hope you have a fantastic time at Bliss!! I’ll catch you there in 2014…and hopefully before that around town. Thanks for entering!

    Interacting with all the different brands and other like-minded individuals is what excites me most 🙂 Thanks for this amazing contest!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      My pleasure, Nell!! I’m totally bummed I can’t go but…I’d at least like to see someone else enjoy my ticket. Those are great reasons to go 🙂 Thanks for entering!

    Jenn Pinspired (@YouPinspireMe)

    I’m SO excited to be going as a newbie this year – and I’d be even more jazzed if my sister, the co-author of our blog, was coming with me!! So, this is for her! We’re super excited to meet others in the Canadian Blog World – we’ve just been plugging away on our own, unconnected, for the last 2 years – it’s about time we popped our heads out of this hole!!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Yes, Jenn, that would be so awesome to be able to take your sister. That would make your Bliss experience that much better! Glad to hear you are going for sure yourself – you are going to LOVE it!! Thanks for entering!!

  73. September 6, 2013

    Meeting up with my bloggy friends excites me most…. so I am a little sad you won’t be attending. 🙁

    It would be awesome to meet new people and the writers of the blogs I follow as well as peek into the possibility of doing something on my own.

    I am excited for the education of it all!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Such a great reason to go, SueSueper Sue!! You will learn TONS at Bliss, meet some awesome people…and I just know you would come home inspired enough to start your own blog 🙂 Thanks for entering!

    Sunshine G

    I’m excited to meet a bunch of new people, learn what I suspect will be a ton of new information and techniques, and have a hotel room by myself for three days with no diapers to change!

    • September 6, 2013

      Sandy

      Hahahaha!!! Love your answer, Sunshine!! Nevermind the wonderful conference….it will just be worth it to get a hotel room to yourself AND not have to change diapers 🙂 Thanks for entering!!
