If you’re a blogger, you’ll probably attend a blog conference at some point during your career; blog conferences are an opportunity to sharpen skills, meet other bloggers and form partnerships.
In the past, Rafflecopter sponsored blog conferences remotely — we would pay a sponsorship fee, send a swag bag insert (e.g. stickers, shirts, coupons, etc.) and be “digitally present” throughout the conference by monitoring hashtags on Twitter and responding in real time.
On a scale from 1 to ‘stepping on a lego’, how painful was your last customer support experience with your cable company? Chances are it was higher up on the spectrum:

What’s it like to go from a blog with zero traffic to millions of page views a month? Beckie Farrant knows.
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Beckie Farrant of Infarrantly Creative. Beckie started blogging in 2007 and in July of 2009 her blog averaged 40,000 monthly views. Today she averages 2.5 million monthly views and runs a profitable business.
We’re excited to bring you the first installment of a new series called #BloggersAtWork. We’ll be interviewing amazing bloggers and distilling their wisdom for your own personal knowledge and enjoyment :) Without further ado, I bring you the story and wisdom of Beckie Farrant — one of our master #BloggersAtWork.
