So, things haven’t been just all “love” around here…because behind the scenes I have been planning the class I’ll be teaching at Alt Summit, which is next week! So, my mind has shifted from my list of blog ideas and drafts to how on earth this Blog About Love even happened?? 🙂 So nope, no outfit planning. No shellacs on nails or fake eyelashes. haha. It’s just been all class prep for me. But it’s actually been a good experience putting this together.
The panel I was asked to speak on is called…
As in, they’d like to know about my experience being a blogger on the scene for two years or less.
They’d like to know…
- How have I found such great success in a seeming short amount of time?
- Why and where is there more room in the blogging world for new bloggers?
- If I were launching a blog right this minute, what advice or tips would I give myself?
Interesting topic, right? I feel both honored + inadequate to teach on this as I’m not exactly blog saavy…I’m just a girl writing her guts out in hopes that it resonates with people, but still feeling very fresh to the world of blogging and tricks of the trade. BUT, I’ve come up with a few ideas of what I’ve done this past year. And I’m so happy to share any bit of it.
It has also been fun to hear the secrets of success of my awesome fellow panel members (they’ve also been blogging for two years or less – and I’ve already learned a ton from them!)
Kirsten Krason / 6th Street Design School (from South Jordan, UT.) She writes about interior design and has her own design practice. (I really think I have to get that Moroccan leather pouf.)
Erin Kennedy / My Thirty Spot (from Phoenix, AZ.) Erin shares advice for any woman in her thirties. (She has a cool “Love for Thirties” Project where people share what they’ve learned in their thirties)
And here we are!
I’m so glad I’ve gotten to know these awesome women behind these blogs.
And now, I’m dying to hear what you guys would say…(though I admit, I feel strange and vulnerable straight out asking this!) But….here goes…
Why would you say think a lovely community of people has been coming to read our blog? You all probably know better than I do! I may even quote you in my panel!
Thanks so much!
P.S. Also, if you have thoughts about any of those questions – for my blog or any blogs – I’d love to hear. I certainly hope to improve this little space this next year…in lots of ways. I have big plans and I hope I can carry them out!
P.P.S. These are my favorite kind of moments at Alt Summit…the ones where you get the inside scoop. I can’t wait to have my mind soaked with new ideas and new inspiration…(you can’t imagine the wealth of information that Gabby Blair has going through her mind…and she just shares every bit of it that she can. It’s so amazing. I try so hard to follow in her lead.)
