More About FinCon
FinCon (also known as the Financial Blogger Conference) is an annual event with a dual mission:
- To provide a “real world” connection for the people who enjoy new media (i.e. blogging, social media) and finance (personal finance, money, investing, etc.).
- To provide a peer education in current consumer financial trends, as well as trends and tactics in new media (e.g. blogging, monetization, social media, etc.).
We also have a lot of fun with social and community events!
Here’s what went down at FinCon12:
At FinCon you will learn what’s new in the financial world and you will learn how to use a blog and other new media to their fullest potential.
In attendance will be 500+ of the best bloggers and financial minds around today. The people that attend this event are mostly independent financial bloggers (and new media creators) in the personal finance, coupon, investing, and other sub-niches of the online financial world. A good example is J.D. Roth from the popular blog Get Rich Slowly.
We also welcome, and encourage participation, from online financial columnists, authors, financial professionals (e.g. CFPs, CPAs), corporate bloggers and professionals, and anyone else interested in this growing industry. Good examples include Liz Weston, Farnoosh Torabi, and the bloggers at Ally’s Straight Talk blog.
Here’s a little flavor at what happened at the 2011 conference…

This will be an event organically produced by everyone in the financial blogging community (hint: join the email list). However, someone has to have the energy to kick this thing off and organize all the desired details. That’s where I come in.
My name is Philip Taylor. You may know me as PT from PT Money: Personal Finance. Since I started blogging, I’ve wanted to have an event like this. I love the idea of connecting face-to-face with people just as passionate about finance and blogging as I am. I even created a finance blogger map to encourage local meetups.
Like many of you over the past couple of years, I’ve attended a few of the major blog conferences or events. At those conferences I ended up spending most of my time with other financial bloggers and financial industry professionals.
It was with those people that I learned the most, and it was those relationships that helped to create the most success online. I left those events feeling like I wanted more time with just those bloggers. Therefore, I’m taking the initiative to organize this niche conference. I hope you’ll join me.
