I'm starting to get excited for this year's Blissdom conference in Nashville next month--making plans and anticipating what fun it'll be to get Outside for a couple days and learn new things.
Are you going? I sure hope you are because I'm looking forward to meeting some of my fine blogging friends. Even more than I'm looking forward to seeing Tennessee for the first time, even more than staying in the amazing Gaylord Opryland Hotel (with the indoor gardens--have you seen it??) and even more than I'm looking forward to sharing the podium with some of the greatest bloggers out there.
Because I'll be speaking at two separate conference sessions, both on Saturday. First, I'll be there at the 10 am for "Blogging with the Stars" where Holly Buchanan will be talking about how four bloggers--me being one of them--got to where they're at. It ought to be very helpful, not only because Holly has effective insights into blogging but because Tsh Oxenreider, Dana Loesch and Melissa Michaels will be there as well. I'm hoping to learn from it myself.
Then I'll be at the 3:30 session, "Memoir Writing: The Power and Mystery of Telling Our Stories" where Megan Jordan, Catherine Connors, Tanis Miller and I will be talking about how blogging can contribute to your writing in other genres--the marriage between blogging and writing your memoir, the problems that can arise and the benefits from trying a new medium. It ought to be a great session as well.
So if you haven't yet decided to go I hope you'll come and if you're planning on being there I hope we can meet up. My flight gets into Nashville Thursday evening and I'd like to plan some fun get-togethers on Friday and more on Saturday evening. Drop me an email if you have the time.
