We're bringing our team to network and connect with the impressive group of military, veteran, and spouse influencers that MilBlogging has amassed. We don't want to miss out on this awesome opportunity.
As a military spouse and freelancer writer, I am excited to network with industry experts like Erica, Kayla, and Judy. There's always room to grow and I know this conference is going to be instrumental in my professional growth. Plus, it'll be fun!
