2013 Bloggy Conference

Bloggy Conference

I am so stoked! I just signed up for The 2013 Bloggy Conference in Ohio. I could not pass up the price on this conference since I have seen other ones for so much more. It is under $75 so you can’t beat that! My Aunt also lives there so I will be getting to visit with her as well, two birds, one stone my friends! This conference had my name written all over it.

Has anyone ever been to a Blogging conference before? If so I need some major advice and tips. I have never been to one and can not wait to go out and meet some other Moms who have a passion for blogging as well.

I also think it will be a great opportunity for me to really improve my blogging “skills” so to speak. I have lost a lot of my inspiration the past couple of months since my Mom got sick and my parents passed away. I just haven’t been able to put my full heart into it. I still love blogging and connecting with my readers but I do a lot more questioning on what I should and shouldn’t put out there. I never did much of that before. I just wrote what I wanted and had fun with it. Now I just feel like there is a bit of a wall up. Who knows, I also question what is and isn’t important to even write about. Somethings just seem so unimportant after their loss as well. Do I want to sit around blogging or get out and do things. I  just don’t know what it is. I also have been putting a lot of time into my shop Au Natural Baby, which I am so in love with. I want so badly for my shop to do well and recently things have really picked up and people have been just so incredible. I am extremely grateful for all the support and encouragement.

Now that I went completely off course lets get back to what I originally was posting about, The 2013 Bloggy Conference. Did anyone go to the 2012 one? What other conferences are out there that I should look into?
If anyone else is going please comment or email me. I would so love to get to know you and have some friendly faces there to connect with when I am there.

My Blogging Journey

By on October 27, 2012

I am so incredibly shocked at the growth my little blog has made the past couple of months. Because of this I would first like to say Welcome to all my new followers. I am extremely grateful you decided to follow my blog.
I also would like to give you a little look back on the past couple of years to catch you up to now.

2 years ago, before baby!

I first began blogging when my husband, Branden, and I were trying to get pregnant with our first baby. We had suffered a miscarriage and struggling to get pregnant on our own. I had found comfort in others who blogged about similar issues. I decided to start blogging and it became quite therapeutic for me. I never thought my blog would have turned into what it is today.

After a couple of months of blogging and over a year of TTC we got pregnant with our son, Ace! To say we were thrilled is an understatement. All our dreams were coming true. I chronicled my pregnancy and began to really connect with my readers. I received so much love and support throughout my pregnancy. I remember waiting to find out if we were having a boy or girl and getting so many wonderful comments when I posted about our Gender Reveal Party. I then gave birth to my son and found this blog helped me stay on top of his milestones and growth through monthly posts. I can look back on his first year and see when he first sat up or crawled. I can see sweet pictures of my son sleeping with his Daddy and his first trip to Disney.

Once I started noticing more followers were interested in my blog I decided to have guest posters come and blog here for the day. I picked women I admired and knew my followers would also enjoy reading about. I can’t thank these women enough for doing this.

Now here I am with a beautiful little boy, a blog I love and a shop I enjoy stocking full of Mommy and Baby items! I hope you all stick around because I have much more to come.

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU! Don’t forget to enter the two giveaways I am hosting and co-hosting. Black, White and Red all Over & The Great October Giveaway!
