My first blogging conference... {Blissdom 2013}

I might lose a few of you here, but I'm going to my first blogging conference next weekend and I couldn't be more nervous! First of all, I've done nothing to prepare. I'm thankful that Skye is my roommate who talked me into going and I know her in real life. That makes it moderately less scary...the other thousand or so incredible bloggers terrify me! I'm just a nerdy youth minister with 7 followers...mostly to see pictures of my kid...How will I ever fit in with professional bloggers!?
I actually ordered business cards a few weeks ago in preparation. I've never had business cards before for the blog. I worked on a media kit yesterday (thanks to Blue Cricket Designs, Crab+Fish, and The Blog Maven!) and considered lying about the stats to fit in. I've been thinking about my outfits all week and have read literally every Blissdom preparation post I can find. I've started networking about 6 months too late and hope to meet lots of new friends in a week!

For those of you also going to Blissdom, I'm super excited to meet you. And terribly nervous. Here are a few things you should know:

  • I'm awkward. Like TURBO awkward.
  • I have a precious 14 month old little boy
  • I work full time as a minister for the United Methodist Church. My husband does too.
  • I'm a little bit hippie and a little bit chocolate chip cookie meets boxed wine, but not at all fashionista. 
  • I had a natural birth, cloth diaper, and extended breast-feed and love all mamas (or daddys, aunts, cousins, uncles, and sisters) who did or did not do that. (Right, I love everyone.)
  • I love to cook, sew, and pretend not to care about the Bachelor/Bachelorette because I'm too smart to watch that trash. 
I cannot wait for Blissdom but hope I'm not sitting in the corner trying to look cool while my knees are shaking and my palms are sweaty! 

Pin It!
