Who knew that I'd be attending out-of-town conferences after leaving the workforce?! I just got back from the National Mocha Moms conference in Chicago a few weeks ago and now I'm on my way to Blogalicious 2009 in Atlanta in October. My life has changed in so many ways since becoming a mom 18 months ago. I always imagined I would be kind of isolated, but my life...especially my social life...has really opened up. Lovng it!
Blogalicious 2009 is right around the corner. For me, October 9-11 can't come fast enough. This conference designed for female bloggers of color (but ALL are welcome) is going to be so much fun, and SO informative! I just took a look at the conference agenda and am impressed by the panelists and session topics attendees can look forward to. And the sponsors?! Some really big players in business are sponsoring this conference. I'm so proud. So many bloggers of color (and of no color) are planning to be there. There are only 40 spaces left, so the conference is sure to sell-out on it's inaugural year, which is awesome! It's going to be at The W in Atlanta--fancy. I really want to enjoy the hotel, so (like I did with the Mocha Moms conference last month) I'm going a little early, before this mega-social event gets on and poppin', to get a mini solo vacay day.
If this sounds like a pitch, that's because it is. You should SO get down to Atlanta to this conference in October. Remeber, there are only 40 spots left! Don't feel like dealing with airports, no worries. Chevrolet and OnStar are providing vehicles for bloggers to road trip and blog their way to Blogalicious and back. Check the conference website for details.
And if you're in Austin, email me! Chevrolet and OnStar might give us a car to carpool over to the conference together!
Hope to see you there!
