Problogger Event 2012

It’s almost a year since I attended my first ever online business conference, Problogger Event 2011.

And oh my did it open up me up to a whole new world of possibilities and awesome people. At the time I wrote a summary post: 26 Problogger #PBEvent Tips – The Fast & Furious Guide.

I also got the session recordings which I’ve listened to probably 12 times since. Sometimes I pick up something new, other times listening reinforces my gut instinct. Either way, the moment Problogger Event 2012 was announced I was determined to get a ticket and attend. I was lucky and have been counting down ever since.

Other people weren’t so lucky. But here is the AWESOME NEWS…
