Inspired by Bloggy Boot Camp @SITSGirls #BBCSTL

This past weekend I attended my first ever blogger conference. It was great.  Still several days later and my mind is running with ideas of where I want to go and how to get there. Bloggy Boot Camp really exceeded my expectations. I expected them to educate me on the business of blogging but what really surprised me was the honesty shared.

I have been blogging for well over a year now it can be hard to get solid answers on things from other bloggers. I probably have a handful of Mom bloggers that I can share things with and even then it’s not as though you have met them in person so there is still some reserve.

What I loved about Bloggy Boot camp was how transparent the leadership was. There were no secrets and they shared every detail of how they have been successful at blogging and how we as blogger can do the same.

One of my favorite topic address was being jealous. I think it was Tiffany Romero who said something like “I love it when another woman becomes successful because the bar is raised and all women will benefit.”  I loved her saying this because as a woman I do want to see women succeeding in their dreams coming true.

The best part was leaving the conference knowing what I need to do to make my dreams as a blogger come true.  Here is where my reader can help. Want to see a topic covered? Tell me. The site is loading slowly? Tell me.  Disagree with where the blog is going? Tell me. You see without my readers I am nothing. You as the reader are as much a part of this blog as I am. To all my loyal readers it is because of you that I can be home with my boys doing what I love. Thank you!

Some of my goals for this year are:

·        Switch to word press

·        New blog design

·        More blog post about my personal life

·        Connect with my readers

·        Become organized

·        Review and giveaways that benefit my readers

·        More loyal followers

·        Connect with my local audience

·        To meet my readers needs

·        Video reviews

So there you have it! I am inspired and cannot wait to attend another blogger conference especially Bloggy Boot Camp!
