Crescent Beach, Surrey, BC

This weekend was filled with writerly conferences for which I had media passes. On Saturday, I briefly attended TBEX,  a conference for travel bloggers, and on Sunday I participated in workshops for the B.C. Writer’s Federation, overlooking Crescent Beach.

Key points I learned were:

1. The importance of branding oneself. 

2. The importance of connecting to other writers online. 

It was pretty neat to see the community travel writers had built with each other through blogging and twitter. On the flip side, it was fairly discouraging to see how unlikely a paying career as a travel writer truly is.
