Bloggy Boot Camp – Charlotte (the after post)

May 20, 2013 Sarah Coggins

This is one of those times I’m grateful I finally took action on something I’ve been putting off for a while. Allison (my good friend & counterpart over at Mom in Chapel Hill) and I nudged each other to get tickets and attend our first blog conference.

We listened to great speakers covering a number of topics were we interested in from details about Google+ (totally still learning it) to SEO to blog design and much more …

We took a few silly photos … 

Enjoyed a few goodies from the event sponsors (thanks again, Brew Over Ice, Salsaritas, Collective Bias and Mirassou Wine) … 

We came away with lots of notes, ideas flowing and, of course, a lot of business cards from other awesome bloggers that we had a chance to briefly connect with in person (good to know a few online friends face to face now!) …

That was our day in a very small nutshell. My brain is so full and I’m still sorting through it all. If for a moment you’ve considered one of these conferences, go for it!

      It's brief - best I could do so quickly. My brain is still spinning too. Lots of good info.

    I'm glad we finally got to meet. And go all the way to Charlotte to do it! :>

      Me, too! Funny it took a trip to Charlotte when we live maybe 2-3 miles apart??

    I live over in the UK but often think about attending confrences which we have here, sounds like this was great. Just found your blog via a wordless wednesday linkie and I was looking for other photo inspiring blogs and noticed you like digital scrapbooks? I do too!

    I, too, was hesitant to go at first, but so glad I did. It was a great conference!
