Attend a new conference for bloggers from WordPress.com
We know you do amazing things with your blog, and we want to help — no matter whether you blog about your passion, your business, your family, your travels, your musings, or even tonight’s dinner. In addition to the awesome challenges, interviews, and tips you find here at the Daily Post and the great courses served up at Blogging U, we’ve got a new way to help you improve your WordPress.com technical know-how and stoke your blogging fires.

You’re invited to Press Publish, a blogging conference organized by WordPress.com, coming to Portland on March 28 and Phoenix on April 18. This is the first event ever organized by WordPress.com just for bloggers, and for Daily Post readers, we’re offering a 40% discount on tickets: just use the coupon DAILY40 when you sign up!
We’re putting notable WordPress bloggers on stage to talk about how they found success. Mary Laura Philpott started with an anonymous blog to share her quirky sense of humor and wound up with a book deal. Erick Prince-Heaggans‘ travel blog led him into a successful career as a photojournalist and travel writer.
Following each blogger’s talk, the people who bring you WordPress.com will take the stage with bite-sized, useful tutorials about tools and features that our featured bloggers used to their advantage, like picking the right theme for you, getting the most out of your upgrade, and how to best use widgets, SEO, and social media.
We’ll also have a full track of live Blogging U workshops, taught by some of the people you know from these hallowed halls, like Cheri Lucas Rowlands, Grace Park, and Longreads editors Mark Armstrong and Mike Dang.
Each event will also have an all-day Happiness Lounge, staffed by real, live Happiness Engineers and other WordPress.com experts, where you can get one-on-one help with your blog or just relax and chat with other bloggers.
And because we want you to get the most out of WordPress.com, every ticket comes with a one-year WordPress.com Premium upgrade — a $99 value — that you can apply to your site.
We want everyone who attends Press Publish to go home wildly inspired and armed with plenty of new tools to blog with more confidence than ever before.
We hope to see you there! No matter what you want to achieve by blogging, inspiration and tools galore await when you Press Publish.
