Two great things to share today… First, Meet The Blogger! Next, I feel so good if I just say the word… Suit, Suit, Suitcase! Yes I’m a dork, I know… But I have a lot of travel coming up, including Amsterdam on October 1 for MTB, and I needed luggage so SuitSuit Fabulous Fifties collection in MINT arrived and totally saved the day. Best part… I’ll never miss them on the conveyer belt at the airport because they really stand out. And there are three in the collection so I scooped the smallest one up for my little boy so he can travel with a matching bag to mama. At least we’ll see how long that lasts until he wants his own with cars and trucks on it. :)
I have so many nice places to visit this Autumn and Winter, and I may be getting back to America, so I’m really looking forward to being on the road seeing nice people and dear friends to give lectures, sign books and just hang out with cool people that inspire me. I love work travel, it hardly feels like work, so I consider myself very lucky in this regard.
So… Are you going to MEET THE BLOGGER in Amsterdam on October 1? Please do! I haven’t been at an event in years – the last was in London in 2012, so this is a big scary step for me to get back out there into the world of blog conferences, speaking engagements and book events. I’m very excited but definitely have shaky knees. I took time off during my pregnancy and the first few years of being a new mom so I could really stay home with him, write books (I finished two since I was pregnant) and focus on re-launching Blogging Your Way and other business-related goals. I’m glad I did, but now I’m eager to go back out there and meet bloggers and creatives again, see what has changed since I took a leave of absense from it all, and most importantly, to connect and inspire as well as be inspired.
On Saturday, October 1st I will be at Meet The Blogger giving the keynote at 10:15 am – a 45 minute discussion to include q+a about creating content – photography and words – for social media and publications from the heart and with passion and courage. I have A LOT to share that I’ve learned in my 10 years of having a career as a blogger and writer, and I promise it will be a discussion like no other because I plan to share my failings and successes and most importantly, help everyone attending to walk away with a lot more than they entered the room with! It’s going to be a very intimate discussion, that is my goal at least, so I do hope you will be there.
To get your ticket to MEET THE BLOGGER please sign up here for Saturday which includes my presentation along with a bunch of other speakers and workshops. Tickets are nearly sold out to act fast. You have to join us!
SEE YOU IN AMSTERDAM!!!! :)
