Fun At Blissdom!

Well, it took me about a week to rest up and catch up after being at Blissdom but it was well worth it!  Blissdom is a 2 day blogger conference in Nashville that provides educational workshops and networking opportunities for both the newbie and the seasoned pro.  We stayed at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel, which is the size of a small town, and enjoyed entertainment by Michelle Branch, Mat Kearney, and Crystal Bowersox.  
I met party girls Kim of The Celebration Shoppe, and Courtney of Pizzazzerie, as well as Amy of Living Locurto and Laurie of Tip Junkie… 
My roommates below, are Kristi of Pink and Polka Dot (an old friend from Middle School) and Carrie of Sweet Faerie blog designs…
Above, are photos of us in the workshops, at the evening parties, with Michelle Branch and Matt Kearney, and of Kristi and me having some silly time in the Freschetta photo booth.
Below is what it’s all about – making connections with other bloggers around the country.  You can see how creative some of the business cards are, and some even have small handmade gifts representing their site/business.   I have to say though, that the cards that Kori of Paper and Pigtails designed for me were a stand out for their chic design and pearl finish – everyone commented on the pearl finish!(thanks Kori!)

If you’re a blogger put Blissdom on your radar and start thinking about next years conference.  It’s a great experience and you’ll get so much from it.  Cheers!
