Attendees and presenters include John and Sherry of Young House Love, Centsational Girl, Thrifty Decor Chick, Ana White, and about a million other amazing bloggers (okay, about 250 of them).
Yep. And then there's me.
When I started ten months ago, I was so gung ho. I thought, "I love blogs! I love learning DIY! Therefore, it would be great to be a DIY blogger!"
Alas, it is not that simple.
What I have learned (from following the best of the best) is that being a blogger does not mean just slapping up a cute logo and sharing your thoughts and skills with an instant captive audience.
Great bloggers are:
- Business men/women
- PR experts
- Graphic designers
- Technology wizards
- Oh yeah, and that other small job of actually working on DIY/craft/decor projects and documenting them.
I'm heading to this conference with butterflies in my stomach and a goal in my heart. That is - figure out what I want all of "this" to be. Will it be a hobby? Will it be a career? Will I get reinvigorated to get moving on this blog? Or will I be satisfied to work on projects at home and be an avid DIY blog follower?
I'm anxious to find out. But most of all, I am excited to be amongst the amazing people whom I have been following online for several years now. AND I get to go to hands-on sessions to learn more skills, IN PERSON, from these awesome bloggers.
How cool is that?!
