A Very SNAP!py Christmas to you!

It will be a very SNAP!py Christmas for one of my lucky readers!!!

I am SO EXCITED to have the opportunity to giveaway one full Conference Pass to the event of the year for creative bloggers!

I blogged a lot of the details about SNAP! Conference on this post, and you’ll want to head to the SNAP! Website today, because a little birdie told me that some of the amazing speakers are about to be announced!!! Yea!

Some friends have recently asked me for advice about growing their blog or their on-line presence. The first tip I would give is to encourage them to attend SNAP! Conference, if they possibly can! Not just because of the information that will be available about blogging and social media, but really because by participating in something like this, you become part of a great community–on-line and in real life! A community that can function as your support system, therapist, consultant, promoter, cheerleader and so much more! I truly think the Creative/crafty/DIY community of bloggers is the nicest corner anywhere on the internet! I am amazed at the talented people I’ve met who are also really good and interesting people!

I attended two blogging conferences and a few social events for bloggers last year. This is what I wrote after attending my first conference and learning  I was going to get the chance to be part of the SNAP! team:

Getting to meet up with other bloggers and creative women…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!

I got to hang with these great bloggers at a blogging conference last summer! (Stacy, Amy, and Tauni)

I’ve seen all of the hard work that is going on behind the scenes to make SNAP! more than a typical blogging conference. It will be hands-on, relevant, exciting, pretty, and a whole lotta fun!

I would so love to see you there and see what insanity we share!  A SNAP! Conference pass may be just the thing to ask Santa for for Christmas–it won’t clutter your house, add to your waistline, or shrink in the wash! And more importantly, it may be a life-altering experience.

BUT you might not have to wait for Santa, because I am giving away ONE TICKET TO SNAP! CONFERENCE right here, right now!!!

All I want to know is why you’d love to come to SNAP! Conference–other than to hang out with me, of course! Leave me a comment with your answer and you are entered to win!!!

BONUS ENTRIES:

Subscribe to the SNAP! blog (use the dark grey rss button) and leave me a comment letting me know you did.
