This Thursday begins an amazing blogging conference centered around the website Blissfully Domestic. The site was started by Alli Worthington, author of the blog Mrs Fussypants. Blissfully Domestic is a site about everyday living, and contains articles and interactive forums for everything from Bible Study to vintage clothes, microwave meals to financial advice, green living to kids crafts. It's really a site for all women, not a section of apron wearing artificially happy housewives.
I attended the TypeAMom blog conference last fall and had a fantastic time meeting women I had interacted with on twitter and in the blogosphere, women who love to multitask and who were taking notes and on twitter, adn updating facebook and talking to someone at their table all while a session was being given. Women who "get" how you can find a real authentic connection with someone you've never met, and how you can hug the stuffing out of someone you've never actually laid eyes on.
I am planning to mostly attend the writing workshops at Blissdom, but will probably get to a few of the business ones as well. I am planning to attend a few of the afterparties, and definitely looking forward to the Harry Connick Jr. concert on Friday night!!!
The conference is being held in Nashville (my old stomping grounds) at the Opryland Resort and Convention Center! I am looking forward to staying with my friend Jennifer the night before the conference, and then rooming with MultitaskingMe, HighImpactMom, and AmyLynnAndrews while we are at the conference.
There are SO many women I am excited to see again and to meet for the first time at this conference! Also, I am going to be away from all four of the kids for the first time EVER. I have alwys had at least one child with me wherever I have retreated to or conferenced at. So this is a true getaway. Complete with 10 hour roadtrip alone with my music to and from the conference!!!
I will keep you posted on all the stuff worth reporting, and promise to dive into writing here with some renewed vigor and purpose. A blog redesign is probably forthcoming, too. Hold on to your hats!
