The bliss of Blissdom was founded in 2008 by Allison Worthington of Blissful Media. Alli wanted to give the beautiful partners she knew from her magazine Blissfully Domestic and throughout the blogosphere a conference that was a little different: one that lacked hot-button topics and negativity. Instead, Alli wanted to create an uplifting gathering in the heartland of Tennessee, for women who wanted to share lots of support and encouragement to build blogs that fit their lives, personal goals and values. A smaller, meaningful conference, in the warm and welcoming South, where women would be invited to make themselves at home, define their bliss, and find the tools and lasting support they need to succeed–without being lost in a crowd. The smashing success of 2008 led to calls for a command repeat performance in 2009–and the community told Alli to expect the event to grow exponentially!
Fortunately, Alli met Barbara Jones in 2008 through Twitter. Barbara leads One2One Network and is a vanguard social media marketing professional. Barbara and Alli found they shared a deep desire to offer bloggers meaningful tools and support. Their shared ideals naturally led to the perfect partnership to boost Blissdom’s reach: Alli continued to gather an inspiring community of bliss seekers, and Barbara aligned Blissdom with sponsorship relationships and created a powerhouse environment for professional development and networking. The dynamic balance of their visions, and their passion for quality and community, make Blissdom a must-attend conference for social media mavens, online publishers and sponsors.
This year Blissdom is excited to share its fourth year in Nashville with many returning attendees as well as the many beautiful women who will be new to Blissdom! We’ve attracted lots of big buzz and attention, but we are deeply committed to maintaining the sweet excitement of our first Blissdom, just as it was cooked up on Alli’s kitchen table four years ago in order to welcome wonderful women to her hometown. We can’t wait to welcome you!
