T.G.I.F. No really…. hallelujah, it’s Friday! This week felt like one of those weeks that just won’t quit. Did anyone else have a week like that, or is it just me?
I couldn’t be more excited about my weekend though. Why? Because I’m going to my first ever blogging conference tomorrow! Woop! (I’ll pause while my sister Karen groans….)
Blogging and Social Media Conference for Women
The line-up for tomorrow sounds great, but I’m most excited about meeting other local(ish) bloggers. Have you seen the Disney Commercial with the little kids? “I’m tooooo excited to sleep!” Yup – that’s me.
In case you’re sitting there thinking, “But what the heck is a bloggy boot camp”… well, here’s how the SITS Girls explain it:Living up to our fundamental belief that The Secret To Success is Support, our conferences give you the opportunity to increase your understanding of blogging and social media, while sitting next to your favorite people from your online world. What’s more, Bloggy Boot Camps are hosted in a variety of major U.S. cities annually, boast one of the lowest ticket prices around, and cover everything from photo-editing to social networking to branding.
You absolutely MUST hop on over to the St. Louis Bloggy Boot Camp site and check out the line-up of speakers. They’ve gathered a great group o’ gals to edumacate us ladies. Yup, edumacate. That’s a real word. It’s in the dictionary. Sure… go look it up.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I’ll snap some pictures at the conference tomorrow to share with you next week. I’ll be checking in throughout the day via Facebook and Twitter so be sure to follow along!
…and if you’d like to attend a Bloggy Boot Camp, check their schedule - there just might be one in your area!
St. Louis | Philadelphia | Dallas | Las Vegas
If you don’t live near one of these cities, they also have several online options to get in on the fun!
One last note… for those that didn’t know, we lost a very dear, close friend this week. He had supported us and been there for so many memories. He laughed with us, he cried with us, he cheered us on. I’d like to take a moment of silence please for the passing of Picnik. You will be missed, my friend.
Thank you for that.
Have a great weekend everyone!
