There is always so much to bring home from these conferences—creative ideas, fresh perspective, new friends, and always, inspiration. After all, BlissDom Canada is a weekend filled with some of the smartest women in the blogging, writing, and social media world, so it's hard not to feel inspired and excited about what you'll do next. Yes, the first few days back after a blogging conference are hard and wonderful... they're wonderful because you get to re-connect with your family and those hugs you receive from the kids? Priceless. The first few days back are also hard because you're not face-to-face in the same room with so many fabulous people.
Yummy Mummy Club. Erica Ehm hosted a fabulous dinner for all her bloggers, and to have us all in one room was amazing. I learned a few things—like the importance of a properly used M-dash—and how incredible all the YMC bloggers are. Seriously. I fell in love with Dr. Kim Foster, and Sarah, and laughed with Connie, and couldn't get over how hot Erica looked, like an even more gorgeous Maria Tomei. It was a great night filled with laugher, wine, and discussion.
Also, full props to Ali for making everyone rock the sock-boots look so well! She's fashion savvy, that Ali, and I miss her already...
Saturday morning I was excited to give a session on How To Price And Value Your Services, and I worried that people wouldn't come to my table for my three sessions. I was happily mistaken, and a lot of great people came to listen to me speak on how to get paid from blogging and the different ways to make money through social media. Thank you to all the fabulous people who came to hear me speak!
The day just flew by... I am thankful I got to spend time with the people I love, even though it felt like the entire conference lasted less than a day! The costume party was great fun, as usual, and Sharon had the most amazing costume ever—she was 50 Shades of Grey, and she is 50 shades of awesome, always.
Thanks for everything, Bliss Chicks... and to everyone who attended? I hope you truly loved it!
P.S. Gav and Ali, I'll be over soon enough for that brunch...
