I am feeling a little discouraged. I wrote about putting together a special conference for special needs bloggers. I had a great response from other bloggers that would either be interested in attending, or in helping. I decided to go ahead and contact companies with my plan.
I sent out a lot of emails to companies that I have worked with or have their contact information for future projects. I received back a couple responses. They responded that they either are not sure what their schedule will be for next year, and will have to wait and see, or they might be interested in sending some product.
I would like to schedule the conference to be held in Raleigh, NC next year. Only, I can’t do anything without having a few companies commit to helping with the expenses. I can’t afford to pay out of pocket for reservations, promotions, and all other expenses that will be involved in this endeavor.
I can’t help but feel very discouraged about doing this. I think it would be a great thing. I would be able to get professionals to do workshops on new research, therapies, financial advise, etc.. It would be great to have each workshop small, that way the attendees could ask specific questions.
I’m just not sure that I will be able to pull this off.
