Time has truly escaped me these past few weeks. I have been trying to write this post up forever and it always seemed like I had said too much or not enough, I had forgotten something important. I can’t beleive that it has already come and gone. A blur, that is what October has been for me this far. So now I am stopping and taking a few minutes to collect my thoughts and talk about the Blissdom Canada Conference.
I think I went into Blissdom with an overly exaggerated view of what I wanted to come out with and maybe stretched myself a little to thin. My expectations were more than high and for the most part I wasn’t disappointed. I missed a few (no a lot) of things mainly because I had little man with me for the entire conference and he wouldn’t stay in the childcare and because my husband, although I know he wants to be happy for me, doesn’t really “get” me and my blog and thought that this conference was really just a big 3 day party. Also, my Blissdom bucket list was massive and included meeting a ton of other bloggers that I had only interacted with online and learning from some amazing people.
The first day was really just a whirlwind of stuff. Thursday was truly the day that I met quite a few people whom I really wanted to meet and even some I didn’t even realize I had wanted to. I am not normally a shy person at all, but I was having trouble interacting with people and that isn’t usually like me. By the end of the day, I was totally over it and had such a great afternoon. I also came home and went back for the #tbt party
I met some really amazing people and I know that they will be lifelong friendships, people I know that I could just send a message to and they will be ready to talk, listen or give advice. I learned so much about how to make my blog so much more while staying true to me. I got to listen to some amazing people who made me cry and laugh. I also learned alot about myself, about how I define myself and how much I should value my worth.
I learned so much that my head is still spining from all of things I want to do and all of the things that I must do. I want to be a better blogger but at the end of the day, I just want to be me. I want to write about what I know best, myself and my family. I hope that as the I head down this road, I will have the opportunity to share new products and really great brands with all of you but above all I want to just share. I will be posting more life experience posts, tips as a mom of 4 (hoping for 5) and easy peasy recipes. I will stay true to what I started this blog for, to share so much of the great stuff in my head with all my loyal readers. Stay tuned for some more great content, because the stuff in my head, thanks to Blissdom, is ready to be written down!
This post is not done and there will be more, I just have to let me writing catch up with the info in my brain!
