So I did it. I paid my $100 to sign up for my very first blogging conference, BlissDom 09.
Not only that, I think I'm going to drive...11 hours...(one way)...and share a hotel room...with a stranger (although fellow twittermom and mom blogger)....for 3 nights, and 4 days.
How's that for jumping right in?
Since I started this blog last May I have learned a lot, but not nearly enough. I have made blogging friends and built a great support system, but I need to reinforce those relationships.
One of the best ways to do that is head to a conference. When I heard BlissDom 09 was in Tennessee I thought that might be doable.
Then when Linda over at Short Pump Preppy said she was near Richmond and would be willing to carpool well I figured if she's crazy, than I'm only 2 more hours crazier than her!
Linda was very persuasive when she booked a room, reminded me registration is only $100 until Dec. 31, and then sent me a cocktail menu for the week.
OK! I'm in!
And actually, I am very grateful to Linda for getting the ball rolling and now I'm not looking back.
I can't wait to meet Linda, and all the other bloggers I've been chatting with. I can't wait to build more traffic to this blog so I can hopefully earn back the money I'm spending going to BlissDom 09. I can't wait to drive 22 hours without incident! (think positive)
