A few weeks ago I was in the great state of Arizona for the Mom 2.0 Summit. I have since learned that the quickest way to confuse all of your friends and family is to tell them that you are going to a conference entitled Mom 2.0 Summit when you are 100% without child. And yes I type those words with confidence [currently popping advil, sipping wine, and drowning my face in popcorn if you catch my drift]. I still didn’t think that anybody believed me that it was simply a blogging conference for women, moms or not, so to assure them that I wasn’t kidding about being non-preggers I bought a Ford Focus. They now all believe me we aren’t having kids any time soon. Have you ever tried to fit more than 2 people in a Focus? Holy make yourself skinny batman. I really didn’t think it was that small of a car until I tried to fit a normal size box in the back seat and realized within seconds that thing was never going to fit in a hole that small.
Sorry, what are we talking about?
Oh right, how I was in Arizona at a conference centered around women who have proved that things that big really can come out of holes that small. GO MOMS!
This conference was hands down the nicest blogging conference I have ever attended. I say that like I have attended thousands. I think I’m on number 4. or 5. There are just so many I can’t keep track anymore 😉 It was held at The Phoenician in Scottsdale which if you have never been to, mark it down as a place you need to go. I was fortunate enough to attend this conference on behalf of Pollinate Media [bloggers, you should be clicking that link and joining our awesome community!] with my bombshell boss, Alissa, a Pollinate co-worker and Virtual Ninja Skye, and the oh so talented and awesome Jessica from Jessica N Designs. All mighty fine ladies if I don’t say so myself.
There may have been some dancing that occurred after a couple of these bad boys.
The next day the conference officially started which meant I learned all sorts of awesome things that I need to now put into practice. I also had a drink. Or seven. You know why I had to? BECAUSE BLOGGING CONFERENCES ARE EXHAUSTING AND HARD WORK. Obviously.
