There have been some exciting things going on in my world that I haven’t been able to say much about. And now that I can tell you about one of them, I’m not even sure where to start…
Getting to meet up with other bloggers and creative women at our Girls Night Out and at Creative Estates a few weeks ago was somewhat life-altering for me! Others have expressed similar sentiments about how wonderful it is to get to be around people that share your creative compulsions. You know. People who don’t raise their eyebrows and stare when you use the words spray paint and plastic tablecloth in the same sentence. People that understand the daily struggle of trying to balance motherhood, creativity, blogging, and that other stuff that just has to get done sometimes. It’s a very validating experience!
One of the most important parts of the weekend was listening to and talking with Tauni Everett (pr and social media genius)! I learned so much from her, but most importantly she helped me to completely change the way I have been thinking about my blog–and has already alleviated so much frustration that I was experiencing from my old approach. (And she is going to hate that I am writing about her, but really I don’t know how else to explain it!)
Anyway, Tauni has assembled the most incredible team of women to partner with her in developing a new creative conference–an opportunity for the kinds of experiences I just had, plus so much more. You’ll recognize many of the ladies on the team as the blogstars that graced our last Arizona Girls Night Out event! The others are all women I
idolize admire and respect greatly! You may well be asking how my picture ended up on the same page as all of these amazing women. I keep asking the same question. I’m not sure I know the answer, but it has something to do with me telling Tauni that conferences need a little insanity added. I guess she agreed.
UPDATE: Make sure and follow SNAP! the Conference on Twitter and Facebook so you don’t miss
