What I learned in Vegas

I will certainly have more to say about all the things I have learned while attending Blog World Expo and Sitscation this weekend but….there were some things I needed to say right away:

1.  Thank you to Tiffany and Heather for reminding me what community truly means.  The vibes at the Sitscation conference were so positive and supportive, I was truly proud to be in the room with such amazing (and giving and talented and….) women!

2.  Mommy bloggers (or whatever you want to call us) are passionate about causes we believe in.  Case in point, raising $900 for SpiritJump in one night (while dancing, mingling and oogling a brand new Coach purse).  We are truly a multi-tasking breed!

3.  Tip Junkie is quite possibly the sweetest AND cutest blogger I have ever met!  She also introduced me to the term “blenvy” which made me laugh out loud!

4.  I was reminded that I am more than a wife and mama to three boys.  It is important to remember that sometimes!

5.  Alli Worthington was full of wisdom- one nugget was this “personal branding can’t be fabricated“.  Remembering that what we do and say on the internet stays there forever should encourage people to be respectful and real (JMHO)

6.  I need to do my kiddos a favor and buy their url’s.  I would have never thought of that on my own (I’m a little slow :-)

7.  I learned that you can subscribe to a Twitter feed (and that I could just soak up technical knowledge from PHATmommy all day)

8.  Renee Ross is a fantastic public speaker as well as an all around rockstar (and she comments on my blog)

9.  Keep it Classy Jen did not know I had a momtv show!  You guys know I have a momtv show, right?  (Wednesdays, 1pm/EST The Invisibles)

10.  I need to be true to myself, my personal brand, my blog and my passion.  More on that to come!  And pictures too!

Thank you again to the gals from SITS for putting together a conference that was cozy, informative and fun!

****note to self, Blog World Expo was too much to add in. Stop putting so much on your own plate****

    REALLY enjoyed meeting you in person……..and love that you are just as beautiful inside and out as you appear here. 🙂
