Official utopYA 2015 Bloggers Announced

Utopia Announcements, Bloggers

UtopyaCon2015_Badge_Blogger_MEDIUMLast year we were blown away by the caliber of bloggers we had the opportunity to work with on an “official” level. It was not only EASY to work with them, each blogger brought to the table collaboration, fresh ideas, FUN and, above all, totally GOT what all of you and all of us are trying to accomplish through utopYA — a sense of purpose, belonging, collaboration, friendship, meaning and PASSION for the stories in our hearts and the journey it takes each one of us on, whether fan, vendor or author.

I need to give another huge thank you to Ren Reidy of Little Bit of RnR, Toni Lesatz of My Book Addiction, Delphina Miyares of Delphina Reads Too Much and Kathryn Grimes of Tsk, Tsk, What to Read for their awesomeness. It was a pleasure getting to know them and their blog readers.

It’s time to announce the bloggers who we will be working with exclusively leading up to #utopYA2015 next June. While some official announcements will still come from official press, media and our blog, these bloggers will have FIRST dibs on A LOT of information headed your way, and all of the official giveaways, as well as exciting blog posts and series’ spotlighting the attendees, panelists and other fun, but crucial announcements, so please go and subscribe to them to get first info on all the fun happenings around utopYA.

These bloggers were chosen because we noticed their enthusiastic, year-round support of not only the utopYA conference, but of ALL the attendees and panelists, special guests and the spirit we work to foster. They have gone so far as to create their own utopYA blog series’ and have turned the spotlight on all of the amazing people that make utopYA special.

They stood up, they stood out, they took chances, they championed YOU. And I can’t wait to work with them this year on some exciting things we are cooking up just for you.

So, without further ado, here are the Official Bloggers of #utopYA2015 (click on their blog title to go subscribe now).
