The 2nd annual personal finance bloggers conference, FinCon, is going on in Denver, Colorado.
All your favorite bloggers [GC edit: most, I couldn't make FINCON this year] are rubbing elbows, listening to panels, and learning more about how to make their blogs even more impactful for their readers.
I was able to attend FinCon last year and helped record some of the sessions. I wasn’t able to attend this year, but was still inspired to learn that FinCon participants helped plant trees in a local park in Denver.
When’s the last time you went to a professional conference and did a service project?
