We're Connected

I attended my first blogging conference (She's Connected, 2012) this past weekend in Toronto.

I'm usually on the planning end of an event and RARELY have I attended a conference as a participant.

It's taken me a couple of days to digest the immense amount of information I attempted to take in over the two days. I was so exhausted after the second day that when my 4 year old fell out of bed and cried out for me at 11pm I didn't wake up (very un-like me). I drifted off to dreamland with words bouncing around my head like:

Engage        Connect       *Brand

What did I take away from this 2-day blog-fest (other than some AMAZING swag from some AMAZING sponsors)? 

I learned that I'm not crazy for thinking I can do this as a full time job (Husband: my tongue is sticking out at YOU); and I discovered that I'm not alone.

I put faces to twitter handles and met some of the amazing ladies I'd connected with online. If not for She's Connected, I never would have had an opportunity to meet like-minded bloggers.

Julia Suppa from Simply Suppa has a great Top 10 List of things she learned at the conference.  If you blog, I encourage you to check it out:  Simply Suppa

Thank you to the awesome sponsors of this event, to the organizers and to my husband for (so far) putting up with the amount of time I spend in front of a screen...

  1. Thanks for linking to my story!!

  2. So glad to have met you Charity. :) I am still in recovery mode -- seems like I am one of the few that needs a whole week or more to recover but I am liking all the posts that people are doing about SCCTO.
