It's Allume's 6th Year! Plus Discount Code and Ticket Giveaway! - Sarah Mae
Hi, I'm Sarah.
Join me in keeping on and beginning again!

It’s Allume’s 6th Year! Plus Discount Code and Ticket Giveaway!

– This giveaway is now over –allumesix

Six years, friends. SIX years.

It’s hard to believe it’s already in its sixth year. Allume, formerly Relevant, was born out of a desire to see kindred spirits connect in person, grow in faith and skill, and have some fun. It’s been a great ride.

And that ride continues this October. Although I’m no longer at the helm, I’ll be there handing out 6 second hugs and speaking on how not to grow weary in your Kingdom work. I can’t wait!

What Can You Expect From Allume?

If you are looking for a warm and welcoming place to meet with bloggers from all over the U.S. (and even the world) to learn about storytelling, effective writing, monetizing your blog, diversity in the blog and social media space, avoiding comparison, and all sorts of topics related to this crazy blogging thing we do, COME! If you aren’t a blogger, STILL COME! My dear friend Amy came last year and was able to connect with an agent for a book that’s been on her heart for awhile. She has no blog, no Facebook, no Twitter. Allume is like that, it’s just friends getting together learning and growing and deepening our faith. It’s a wonderful, beautiful time.

I really hope you can join me there!

“Our goal at Allume is to minister to the woman, the blogger, the story teller. We want to love well, encourage, and spur women on to shine the Light that lives within them. We want to serve you in ways that cultivate the Light of Christ in you, help you expand your influence, use your influence well (in your home, your community, or around the world) and encourage you with stories of those who are living out that Light.”

    I would love to connect with a good book agent!

    I’ll take a six second hug! Also I will have another baby with me!

  • Julie Wilson

    I love the connecting and reconnecting with friends I’ve made online! I love that the sessions are spiritually uplifting and always pointing to Christ, not just to bigger and better blog results! (And the swag bag doesn’t hurt either). Though I don’t think I’ll make it this year, I love learning about the sponsors and ministry opportunities!

    Ps. The prayer room is my favorite!

  • Victoria Mininger

    The connections with other bloggers and women who have the same heart is amazing and a shot of encouragement to keep pouring into the work that God has put before me. The sessions are practical and beneficial, but beyond that, Christ honoring.

  • Misty Krasawski

  • Lanette Haskins

    My first time at Allume was two years ago and I was hooked! I was working so I didn’t have the opportunity to attend workshops or do as much as I would have liked to and so I would love to go just as a writer/blogger and not as an assistant publicist.
    I would also love to connect or re-connect with some amazing women that I’ve come to know through social media โ€” personally and through my job!

  • Kate

    What a great giveaway! I’ve only heard amazing things about Allume, and would love the chance to meet so many online friends in real life! Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

    I would love to go – I’ve never been to this type of conference!

  • Paige

    I truly would love to go to allume. Yes I am a younger blogger but it brings me pure joy to see that there are other like minded individuals out there. I love the unity that is revolved around this group and yet there is such a beautiful uniqueness with every woman. If it can’t happen for me this year I am going to save up pennies and dimes until I can make it!

  • Laura p

    I love Allume. It’s funny because I always come away with something I need that I didn’t go looking for so I have just decided that if I get to go again this year I am just going open to what the Lord gives me.

  • Belinda P

    I’ve known about Allume for a few years now, and always wished I could attend, but haven’t so far. I’d love to be able to have that opportunity! ๐Ÿ™‚

    How to get into a good writing habit/discipline; resources for improving my writing – how/whether blogging fits into that

  • Tina Evans

    I don’t blog, take frequent breaks from Social Media (I’m on one right now, so, no sharing via Facebook or Tritter, ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) so I’m kinda like your friend Amy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, I have a lot of online friends who attend Allume. I’d LOVE to attend to finally meet (face to face!!!) these wonderful women I have met over the last few years. The one thing I’d love to learn at the conference? How to incorporate Social Media/Blogging into real life. How can we live in the present but also live in an online world? <3

  • Christa Threlfall

    I’m mainly looking forward to meeting bloggers! This will be my first conference, so BRING IT!

  • Amanda Espinoza

    I love the chance to meet other writers and hearing about why they write.

  • Martha Brady

    wow! i attended the first 3 years! hard to believe the first one was 6 yrs. ago. i didn’t know what a hashtag was when they talked about it that first year:) i had seen one, just didn’t know what it was called. i learned so much that first year…and met so many people…almost overwhelming!

  • Joyful Journey Mom

    This would be my first blogging conference so I am not even sure what to expect. I would love to meet others who blog and learn from more experienced writers. And as a busy mom of 5, time to reflect would be nice too.

  • Aleah

    I would love to learn more about social media strategy & get to hear some fantastic speakers!

  • Becky Keife

    I’d love to learn how to better use social media to help maximize my efforts toward the Kingdom work through words I feel God has called me to without it sucking time and energy away from other areas of life that also merit my full attention (ie, three children who regularly want to eat.)

    Thanks for hosting this ticket giveaway! Whoever wins will be SO blessed…hope it’s me. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Bronwyn

    I’d love to meet some in real life some of the faces I have come to love online already.

  • brenda

    Last year was my first Allume and I loved connecting with other Creatives, writers, and non-profits. I would love more assistance on the technical part of monetizing your blog. Loved the panel session about publishing (ebook vs. self-publish vs. traditional publishing route). I would love to hear more on developing the discipline of writing for someone who is not a stream-of-consciousness writer and who writes and thinks more freely and clearly in the later night time hours.

    Thanks so much for putting this out there for us, Sarah Mae! Blessing upon blessing to you!

  • Jennifer

    I think October will be the perfect time for me to attend something like this!

  • Amy Ivey

    Still trying to find my rhythm. Would love to learn how to hold onto my writing voice in the midst of building a platform. Thx!

  • Jennifer D.

    I would love to just hang out with other like-minded women who love Jesus, talk, brainstorm, encourage.

  • Debbie Wenger

    As far as learning from Allume, I’d most like to find out how to make my blogging a bit more intentional and, as a result, find a way to monetize it so I can contribute financially to our family through something I love. But beyond that, I’d love to meet up with people from all over the place and find some new friends. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Malia Russell

    I need inspiration to jump start my blogging again.

  • Kim Hyland

    I’ve attended 4 of the 5 conferences. In the beginning I went to learn about blogging. Now I go to be inspired, challenged, and renewed. And I still learn about blogging!

  • Amanda Geaney

    I’m a baby blogger. Next month will mark my 1 year bloggiversary. I’d like to attend for the fellowship with other believers and to gain new insights on how to exude Christ-likeness through social media.
    I’ve never been to a blogging conference.


  • Helen Gullett

    I’ve been wanting to go to Allume conference for a long time! Praying the time will come ๐Ÿ™‚ I would love to learn from all the experts how to exalt and glorify Christ through blogging and social media without drawing people away, I would love to learn how to communicate Him to the world! Thank you so much for these chances to win a free ticket!

  • Angi Schneider

    I’d love to attend just for the encouragement.

  • Mandy Roberson

    I was there the first two years of Allume (then Relevant), and would love a chance to come back for a bit of a reunion with my bloggy buddies!

  • Bek Stevenson

    I’m so looking forward to Allume again. Maybe this year, I’ll actually have my blog UP and running? It’s amazing to be with so many like-minded and like-spirited women.

  • Becky Holmes

    I cannot even fathom the amount of love, education and encouragement that may come from this conference!

  • Tara

    I think I would love this even though I haven’t quite taken that leap into the writing world.

  • Wendy Speake

    Letting all my friends know. Thanks.

  • Gayl Wright

    I would love to win this ticket! It would be my first time at Allume.

  • Jennifer Pepito

    I love writing my blog, but am so out of my element with the design and technical side. I would love the resources and connection this conference would offer. However, with seven children and the looming expense of college, self education has to be carefully stewarded. I know God will provide the things that I need, and I am thankful that He directs each season of my life.

  • Brandi Nabors

    I’m so excited to (hopefully) bring new life and depth to my blog by getting inspiration and tips from all my favorite pros ๐Ÿ˜€ It would be an honor to sit among some of the best bloggers out there!

  • Jacque Watkins

    Love this conference so much…so many wonderful memories. Thank you Logan and Sarah Mae for Allume. What a gift. xoxo

  • Anastasia Murphy

    I would love to win this ticket, as I’ve never been to Allume but would love to go!

  • JulieK

    I want to learn more about storytelling on my blog – it’s my favorite kind of writing but I don’t do enough of it publicly!

  • Cheryl Simpson

    I want to know how to connect better with my readers and develop more of a community.

  • Amber @ letloveinvade.con

    Just checked out the awesome speaker line up and all the conference info! I would LOVE to be there, get refreshed, connect with other writers and learn how to better use my influence for the glory of God!

  • Mandy Kelly

    I would love to win a free ticket! With trying to do an adoption -it seems out of the relam finaically!

  • Becky Goins

    I need to learn how to strategically connect to more readers instead of just blogging to my own little sphere. I enjoy writing so much and would love to be able to reach more readers. I have realized (after spending much time to create what I hope to be quality content on my blog) that no matter how much time I spend on writing, if it doesn’t reach people – it doesn’t make the difference that I intended for it to. So marketing would be what I most need to learn about I believe!

  • rachelrusticus

    To be with women of God, loving courageously and creatively!

  • Olivia

    I want to be encouraged to write again!

  • Amanda

    I would love to attend this conference to make connection with other bloggers and be encouraged to write even more.

  • Tammy Moyle

    I would love to learn how to love my audience better and to connect with a publisher
