We are bringing you quality speakers and teachers, and we are bringing them into our community even after their sessions end.  We know they are successful and that you want- and need- to learn from them.  They are the heart of Blog Elevated, bloggers who want to share with you.

What is a Blog Elevated Mentor?

They’re bloggers who have succeeded.  Bloggers with a passion to reach out and help you.  They know that a rising tide raises all boats, and that your success doesn’t take away from their accomplishments.

They are past speakers, teachers, and bloggers who know what they are doing and want to help YOU.

That’s right, we’re bringing last year’s speakers back just for you!

If you have a question during the conference that isn’t answered by a speaker or you just need some hints and tricks to help you achieve the next level, these are the people that you can turn to with questions.

They’ll be there, sitting with you during the conference, laughing with you during lunch and always open helping you.

Seek them out and get their help.
