Bloggy Boot Camp: 5 Random Thoughts


I got home last night from bloggy boot camp with a brain full of knowledge! I had an incredible time. Since its going to take me a few days to sort through my notes and process all the information I took in I thought I would share with you 5 things I learned/experienced/discovered and they are a bit random :)
blogging and social media conferences for women dallas tx
#1 I got to meet one of my blogging bff’s yesterday, the gorgeous Kelley from The Grant Life! She is an INCREDIBLE woman and I am sooooo glad we were able to meet in real life and go to BBC together! Talk about a life/blog changing experience!

#2 As a kid I dreamed of being a writer, I never thought that I’d be one. But I Am! As a Blogger, I write, pretty much daily, and share my perspective on life. That makes me a Writer! And since Kelley and I agreed to split up for the separate sessions and share notes I went to the Writers Workshop :)
Francesca (http://www.thesitsgirls.com)  and Kathy (http://www.mamakatslosinit.com) Challenged my way of thinking about my blog, myself and my story. I will definitely be going into more detail about this session in a separate post :)
#3 Holly (http://sheisdallas.com) shared some great ideas about including local content in your blog. Even if you’re not a “local” blogger you can really use it to boost keyword searches and your SEO. Who knew????
#4 I met a TON of awesome bloggers! And made some really great connections :) I’m going to be working hard over the next couple days to connect with my new friends!

#5 Bloggy Boot Camp is definitely an experience I want to Repeat! I’d say its worth every penny… but my ticket was a gift! :p Next time they are even close to within driving distance I WILL BE THERE!
My brain is still on overload! So I am going to take a Sunday afternoon nap :) Oh and you should head over to Mommy Made Blog! I’m giving away one of my favorite things from the shop!


I’m linking up at Sunday Snaps! And you should too! :)

A Beautiful Day
