MAN, it has come up quickly. It only seems like a few weeks ago I was buying my ticket.
This will be my first blogging conference, and I am not ashamed to admit I’m more than a little nervous. Mainly because I’m not great at meeting new people and social situations are a challenge.
So, in order to confront my fears and make sure that I do get the most out of the 2 days of talks I’m going back and reviewing the reasons I wanted to go in the first place.
- I wanted to learn more about blogging! Easy! - This year’s event is on the Gold Coast, so I can feasibly go. Previous events in Sydney or Melbourne were just not even in the realm of financial possibility. - To hear some of my favourite bloggers speak
And some things I shouldn’t worry about:
- What I’m wearing; because I’m not a fashion blogger and should not really care about being judged on appearance anyways - Making friends with everybody; because this is unrealistic - Not having a laptop or iPad; because I shouldn’t feel inferior for not having gadgets - My phone battery running out; because there’s nothing I can do to stop that happening!
Things to take:
- Notebook & pen (I’m old school) - Iphone for tweeting and instagram, with backup battery pack - Cardigan for air conditioned conference rooms - Snacks (just in case) - A positive attitude
Hi, I'm Sarah! I'm 33 and searching for my passion.
Until then, I slog away in a cubicle working full-time and focus on enjoying my downtime with things like TV (my old friend), movies, twitter, (trying to) cook, reading and hanging out with my hubby. My head is turned by things like vintage homewares, stationery, chocolate and scrapbooking. I blog about whatever takes my fancy.
