calling all bloggers ...

23 June 2014

Several weeks ago I got a happy little text message from Lauren wondering what my thoughts were on hosting a blogging event with her, Megan, and Bridget later this summer. I slowly counted to three before responding lest she think I was terribly overeager (because I was!) that I was in. In in and IN (as long as the date worked with Simon's schedule). I'm a lover of blogging, reading blogs, and getting to know my fellow blogren but have never taken the next step and gone to a conference to meet my favorites in the flesh. The deal was sealed when Lauren randomly threw out a date that fell on a weekend that Simon was on vacation. Meant to be? Absolutely.

I'd love to say something like, "we've been working furiously these past few weeks to get everything planned and set in stone" but the truth is that Lauren, Bridget, and Megan have been working furiously the past few weeks to make the conference a truly incredible weekend. And Lauren has been going above and beyond dealing with all the nit and grit of the business side of things and securing some truly awesome vendors and event space. Like the boss that she is.



Not that they need any introduction ... but here we have Bridget, Megan, and Lauren and when I was drafting this post Julia was "helping" and asked if they were movie stars. Of course they are, little J. Of course. I'm still a little bit starstruck by all three of them as I've been an avid reader of all three blogs for a long, long time. Meeting them in person will be a real treat. Christmas in August for this housemouse!

You can read more about the hosts here!

The event isn't limited to just bloggers. The weekend will host 100 (hence the name!) bloggers, small e-business owners (Etsy, anyone?), and writers to help foster relationships, network, and learn more about making our web presence go the distance. There will be presentations from a wide variety of experienced and successful experts on photography, social media, styling, photo editing and much more.  It's guaranteed to be a fun and incredibly useful weekend.

You can read all the details over on our website but please don't hesitate to ask me or the other ladies any questions that arise!

Thanks for listening and I really hope to see YOU there. The first twenty tickets are deeply discounted so go go go while they're still available!

*and special thanks to Kelly Christine Studio for our site design!

  2. Grace! Booked it. Done. See you guys in Dallas. I'm so excited!

    Having an issue with getting the ticket for the Friday dinner on the website though - can't purchase because "You cannot continue checkout because this store has not configured any shipping options for your country." :/
