While we work diligently to help build sustainable businesses for content creators each day, many of us here at Mediavine harbor secret desires to embrace all things DIY and crafty. Earlier this summer, we indulged in our inner glue-gun dreams when we headed to Charleston for the Haven Conference. We had our first-ever Mediavine conference in Charleston in 2017 and fell in love with the city, so we couldn’t wait to return to this beautiful (sweaty) city. Now in its seventh year, Haven is a conference for DIY and decorating professionals. There were plenty of hands-on experiences for crafters, builders, and organizers, as well as more traditional blogger sessions covering everything from Instagram to managing workflow.

It’s been three weeks since our second annual Mediavine Publishers Conference, and we’re still California dreamin’. The conference is our favorite event of the year (not that we’re biased or anything) and we’re so grateful we were able to spend a few days with so many amazing publishers! While the weather didn’t present quite as many challenges as our Charleston conference, we were determined not to let the chilly temperatures and rain get us down. Our conference kicked off with a reception at San Jose’s new San Pedro Square Market. This “market” is really a food hall, filled with vendors of all cuisines. Attendees enjoyed street tacos from Loteria Taco Bar and fantastic ice creams from the Treatbot truck, as well as our signature cocktail, the Teal Traffic Driver! And many shenanigans were captured in the photo booth, sponsored by GumGum. Sessions started Thursday morning […]Read more
