Q: Hi Tobi, I am interested in both design and social media and want to learn more about blogging trends and how to gain an audience. Are there any resources I should try? I would love any insight! You make it all look so easy. Thanks!

A: Thanks for your question, Michelle. Since starting the blog more than four years ago, it has truly been a labor of love for me! Not only is it a great outlet to share more about our projects and the new ideas and products I have discovered, I have also truly enjoyed connecting with our readers and helping to solve your design dilemmas.
With that being said, I have turned to several different outlets to help grow and maintain the blog. Since you have an interest in design, I would highly recommend signing up for the Design Blogger’s Conference.
Now is the perfect time to register, too. If you sign up by January 15, you’ll get the Early Bird Rate and save $100! This is such a great event whether you’re a blogger that wants to expand your reach or you have a passion for design and you’re just getting started. The agenda is loaded with reports on this year’s design trends, insights to help grow your followers and generate income, as well as opportunities to network with sponsors and share your blog. And I am excited to once again be speaking at this fantastic conference with several of my “all-star” blogger friends. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this two-day event.
I am also thrilled to share that “Tobi’s Blog” has been nominated for Best Overall Design Blog by the Design Bloggers Conference Hall of Fame. Our entire office was literally jumping for joy when we heard this good news.
Now, all our readers have the chance to help us win this prestigious award by voting in the online contest. Thanks to those of you who have already voted! If you haven’t, please help us out — it only takes a minute.
I hope to see you all in LA at the conference this February!
