|Entering the unknown.|
|Oh yeah, that's the one.|
|Media Kit session was exactly what I needed! On to lunch.|
|There was a serious amount of paella for lunch. Those silver serving vats in the background? Paella. And Yams.|
|Ok don't hate me but I skipped the last 3 sessions to get a chair massage and to check out other people's blogs online. Totally worth it.|
Frankly, the reason I even signed up for this conference was for the "Blogging for a Cause" session. It was presented by Laura, who blogs about her experience with and advocacy for Spina Bifida. Her blog, holdinoutforahero.org, is amazing. I got a chance to talk to her and pick her brain a little. Totally worth my conference fee.
After the sessions we had niche breakout sessions. I ended up networking with employees from Rollins, Second Harvest Food Bank, Orange County Library, and Arnold Palmer Childrens Hospital. Fantastic ideas, fantastic people. All in all a successful day. 2 offers to guest blog on someone else's blog, and an offer for a speaking event. Then came the after party...
|P.S. At this point of the day I was in desperate need of a nap.|
So the last order of business was the after party. Guess who has 2 thumbs and won the Greater Orlando Heart Walk blog award? THIS GIRL! So I walked away from the day with $100 card, new friends, new networking contacts and an idea for a book...successful day? I'd say so. ♥
|As they say on Cribs, this is where the magic happens. ;)|
