I'm off today to Salt Lake City to attend the Altitude Design Summit. I'm rocking a haircut way shorter than was expected or that I'm really comfortable with, but I'm feeling good and am really excited to meet some great people and learn a whole bunch about myself. This is the first time I've been away from our children since Stella was born over seven years ago. After I get over the anxiety of being away from them I am going to sink into this thing like a serious vacation.
I'm especially looking forward to my roundtable, "Growing and Maintaining a Small Blog with Pride". Fingers crossed some folks sit down with me. I really want to talk with people to find out what their motivation for blogging is, what their expectations are, and if they are keeping happy with it all. I also want to discuss authentic ways of finding exposure for our blogs, and that wanting exposure is totally okay!
My friend and absolute guardian angel Anna did the graphic and typesetting work on the workbook I'll be giving out. She is amazing and I owe any shred of sanity I've had in the last two weeks to her, literally!
Handling the unknown is one of the many, many things being a burlesque performer has taught me. This trip is 100% unknowns. I'm just going to picture myself in my underwear and I'll be all set. xoxo
