Not one but TWO Bloggers conferences!
I knew I wanted to go to both, but I wasn’t sure if I could financially hack it, but thanks to a wonderful birthday gift from my mom I am on my way!!
Now this is a big deal for this semi introverted only child. I don’t normally do things like this, especially by myself. BlogHer is just a few blocks away from my job in NYC, but going to a different state (Baltimore, Maryland) all by myself for a weekend is nerve wracking, but exciting all at the same time!
The purpose of my attending these conferences is to learn, learn, learn. Since I am semi-new at this blogging biz, and I have a true passion for it, I want to learn from the people I
stalklove to read.
I will have to literally come out of that semi-shy, quiet observer, listening but not talking, smiling but not communicating self that has gotten me to 29. I have always been envious of those people who can grab life by the
cojoneshorns, take over a room with their personality and walk out with 200 friends by the end of the day.
I am not that girl.
I am, however, pretty amazing once I let my guard down (so I’ve been told), so my challenge to myself is to go in with my head held high, put on my super friendly hat and have a real good time!
I suppose its time for me to come out of myself, meet new people and learn as much as I can. I’m ready.
This also crosses one thing off of my Before 30 Bucket List!
Don’t forget to enter my Birthday Giveaway! Entries close on Sunday.
Anybody attending any bloggy/networking/professional conferences this year?
