headed out



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

    1. I tried, my dear, I tried. The only weird looking bob in a sea of gorgeous blond or ombre flowing locks. I kept my chin up, but it was hard! More soon. xo

  5. Good luck! You'll be great. Wish I was going too but will cheer you on from Massachusetts. Have a fabulous vacation.

    p.s. Thanks for virtually introducing me to Anna. I am in love with her "birds and blooms of the 50 states." Next blog pocket money that rolls in is going to those.

    1. Thank you, Justine! How sweet of you. That "Birds and Blooms of the 50 States" might be coming out as a book in the near future, I'll make a big deal of it if I see it, for sure!

  6. I hope that you post your notes! I want to use my new blog as a space for high-quality content, a space to hone my design skills, and a place for a small close-knit community.

    1. Thank you SO, SO much for sitting down with us on Friday morning, Tamera. I was really happy to see you, to hear your story and your future plans, and I'm SO happy that you got something out of the roundtable discussion. I think it was a good talk and a lot of people contributed things I hadn't even thought of. You are doing a great thing on your blog and I'll be following! xo

  8. Love the workbook and wish I could've attended. My blog views have gotten smaller not bigger yet I know my blog is better now. So, I can totally relate to what you wrote above!

    1. Isn't that interesting? I'm surprised, by the way, that you say your views have gotten smaller. Every time I stop by I see so many comments! I think you at least are writing and showing things people want to talk about and share, and that is by far on of the great parts of what we do, right! xoxoxo
