The 2nd Annual Financial Blogger Conference is just days away! From September 6th through the 9th, financial bloggers, financial professionals, columnists, authors, and financial companies will converge on Denver to network and learn.

Additionally, some of you will notice that our Twitter profile picture will be changed from Meg Favreau's to mine from September 5th through the 9th. I will be participating in a Twitter scavenger hunt on Saturday run by Ally Bank so to help make things easier for the scavenger hunt participants to find me instead of looking for Meg, our main Twitter picture will be changed for the conference.
We look forward to seeing all the attendees at the conference!
