This past weekend was Mother’s Day. Wait, you’ve heard/read/seen/been beaten about the head and face about Mother’s Day? My guess is you don’t want to hear about mine and I will grant you a reprieve. I will only share one little tiny part of my weekend because it was AWESOME. Miss S and I took a little road trip to Boston and attended the amazing SITS Girls’ Bloggy Boot Camp. That is right, I spent the weekend away from my family, slept with a chick and partied with about 125 other bloggers. So basically I WIN at Mother’s Day.
You may be wondering what on earth is Bloggy Boot Camp and why do I care? If you don’t blog feel free to skip to the next paragraph, but it’s your loss folks. Ok, all bloggers here? Good. If you can attend a Bloggy Boot Camp you MUST. Bloggy Boot Camp is a day full of info, pretty SITS girls and amazing people. My brain literally hurt from all the great info that was banging around my cerebellum and my face was sore from smiling all day long. These are our PEOPLE, they understand WHY we blog, they will never give you the side eye or roll when you talk about your latest post. The SITS girls Tiffany Romero and Francesca Banducci set the tone from the minute you enter the conference. The focus of SITS girls is simple, “The Secret of Success is Support”. The conference was filled with 125 people ready to support one another, learn, network and become better bloggers. It was geek girl festival and it made me giddy.
I owe a big sloppy open mouth kiss to The General for being Mom and Dad all weekend. A big hug to my kids for not getting lost, hurt or sick over the weekend. I love all of you. Thank you for giving me a much needed adult only weekend. My tank is all filled up and I am ready to go. I won’t open mouth kiss them, but maybe a small sloppy kiss and a hug to Francesca and Tiffany of The SITS Girls for an amazing weekend and for my special prize at the end of the day. You made me a very happy chick.
If you are interested in Bloggy Boot Camp please take a look. (I am looking at YOU Seattle friends). If you can’t attend a conference, but are interesting in learning more about how to be a better blogger and honestly, how to do it right, check out The SITS Girls LEARN section of their community. I have participated in every opportunity offered in their education series and it was time very well spent.
