Bloggy Bootcamp San Diego

Being a brand new Blogger I was a bit intimidated to attend the Bloggy Boot camp in San Diego this weekend.  My daughter Ashley (Little Miss Momma) was the first speaker--so at least I felt, while I may not be worthy, I still had a good reason to go. 

WOW! Was I pleasantly surprised. 
Everyone made me feel welcome and special...
Everyone was so supportive
and everyone made everyone feel like they were a superstar blogger! 


Blogging Resources for Women

It was jam packed with ton of useful and helpful information.
The set up was welcoming and almost forced even the shyest of us to interact and meet fellow Bloggers.

The speakers were all so insightful.  So a big shout out to the
SITS Girls for making this all happen.  Tiffany (you are so pretty) and Francesca...
You rock!

For Women

Best of all, I feel like I just made some really good friends

Like Betsy of Betsy Life who's food blog could inspire even the worst cook to try and sun dry tomatoes and who's new hair do makes me want to chop off my locks.

and Kathleen of Kathleens Sugar And Spice who's little Beagles melt your heart and who made me feel so welcome at the after party.

and Lisa of  Love Heals Gage who's story is so inspiring it brought tears to my eyes and who's as every bit sweet and kind in person as I knew she would be.

and Lauren of I heart Andy Gross who's stories of her 3 year old had me in stitches and a little worried that my own grandson was not going to be out of the terrible twos anytime soon.

and Lisa of The Gonzo Gourmet that grows her own tomatoes even with a black thumb and then takes amazing pictures too.  She was the first blogger I spoke to at the first table of the day and I knew I was gonna love that I was there after meeting her. 

I listened with admiration as each person at the table gave their elevator pitch.  The worst part of the day was that we often ran out of time before we got to hear each persons story.  I wanted to jump up and shout WAIT!!!!  I DIDN'T GET TO HER HER STORY YET... but it all moved so fast and we were on to the next speaker and table. 

I'd love to spend an entire day of only meeting all the bloggers and hearing their stories. 

I plan on spending every free moment pouring over all the blogs of every one I met so I can get to know each and every one of them even better.

You should consider how a filing may affect your life, how not filing may affect your life and then decide which results are better for you.
