I have been looking forward to this blogging conference for a long time! After my amazing experience with Bloggy Bootcamp, I started searching for a multi-day conference to attend and after hearing about all of the positive experiences and recommendations, I decided to go with Type A Conference! Because I’m an introvert and I’m shy, I knew I needed to take baby steps and making the jump to something big like BlogHer would have landed me in the fetal position in the corner somewhere having a panic attack so I wanted to push myself out of my comfort zone while not getting too overwhelmed. Type A fit everything that I was looking for!
I had everything lined up to attend last year but after the obstruction surgery and complications, I couldn’t make it so Kelby, the brain behind Type A, graciously rolled over my conference pass to this year and now I am counting the days! I’ve got a fabulous roomie (Hi Julie!), am carpooling down with some local bloggers (as I need a valium to survive driving in Atlanta), and have my schedule all laid out (which was no easy task)! There are sessions about everything under the sun but some of the sessions I am looking forward to the most are on writing a book (definitely on my dream to-do list), photography for bloggers (still trying to figure out how to use my camera), a hands-on session on SEO (the most baffling aspect of blogging for me personally), and cause blogging and social media activism (probably the session I am looking forward to the most).
I have a hard time not squealing when I even write about this! I am so looking forward to reconnecting with some of the fabulous ladies I met at Bloggy Bootcamp and meeting some of my bloggy friends that I have known for quite some time online but finally get to hug their necks in person!
My biggest worries now are hoping that I have enough energy to survive the weekend (I have built in breaks in my schedule to help regulate spoons) and what to wear! Who wants to be my stylist?
Anyone else heading to Atlanta next month?
