I attended my first blog conference a couple weeks ago in Atlanta and I am so glad I did. The Haven Conference was such a great experience. I started blogging in August 2011, simply to keep friends and family up to date on life living with four generations under one roof. Never in a million years, would I have thought I would be at a blog conference 10 months later meeting all my invisible friends and sharing a hotel room nonetheless with Logan from Life For Dessert and Darlene from Fieldstone Hill Design, who I had never met before! My five year old often asks, “mommy, are your computer friends real?”. I now can say with certainty, “yes, they are!”
Now don’t be to critical at the quality of this video, this was my first time creating and editing a video.
Watch my Haven recap and Logan impersonating me,
Isn’t Logan hilarious? I have not laughed that hard in probably 20 years. It blew my mind how nice, caring, thoughtful and generous all the blog speakers and attendees were. Seriously, it felt like I knew most of these ladies for most of my life and I had never even had a conversation with any of them prior to the conference.
Not knowing what to expect, I had no idea the popularity of “recap posts” after the conference. Unfortunately, I didn’t take many pictures to share but never fear, go to Rhoda’s site at SouthernHospitality and you will see all the Haven recap posts in one place on her blog. I will be better prepared next time!
I think this video though gives you a clear indication that I had fun! Now you know what a group bloggers who have never met before do at 2am in the morning at a conference 🙂
