In January, I had the pleasure of attending BlogPodium’s first event called Blogs & Media.
That event….wow! It kicked me right out of my comfort zone (in a really great way!) and connected me with some fabulous, like-minded folks. That single day made a huge impact on me. It filled up my inspiration tank!
When early bird tickets were available for the spring talk, called The Business of Blogging, I jumped at the chance and bought a ticket. This was a talk I was not going to miss!
Unlike my first BlogPodium experience, I wasn’t nervous this time around. I was excited! I was pumped! I knew I would get to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones — I was especially excited to put some more faces to
twitter handles names. With a stack of business cards in hand and my iPad to take as many notes as possible, I hit the road to Toronto!
As expected, the day was phenomenal. I walked away with a head full of ideas and a heart full of inspiration — but, I have to say that the one thing that stuck with me most was how important it is for me to write consistently. To blog more often. To keep honing this amazingly rewarding craft.
Even if I don’t feel like I have it in me…
Even if I my day job as a copywriter has sucked all the words out of me…
Another big take away for me was the importance of goal setting. How can I be a better blogger/writer if I don’t set goals and aim to achieve them? I can’t. So, over the next few weeks, I’ll be looking inward and setting some goals for myself and this blog. Lord nows I have a long list of updates to write about….*cough cough* bathroom renovation *cough*…
Many thanks to Jennifer Flores from Rambling Renovators and Lindsay Stephenson from Little House Blog for putting together another fabulous event! To Nicole Bache from Making It Lovely and the BlogPodium panel — thank you for generously sharing your expert knowledge! And, last but not least, thank you to all of the sponsor brands and vendors — it was fabulous to interact with you!
To my fellow bloggers — it was a slice! See you at the next talk in the fall.
