Morning! It was such a busy weekend that I’m glad it’s Monday…well almost. The weekend was jam packed with all kinds of deliciousness starting on Saturday with BlogPodium. I talked a bit on Friday about BlogPodium and what I was going to wear (which to my surprise I actually stuck to!) and how excited I was to attend. I mean, the keynote was given by Sarah Richardson for heavens sake, enough said.
I can’t begin to tell you how inspiring she was… She talked about her start in the business, her first job as a prop stylist on a TV show, her struggles to pay the rent in the beginning and how an apartment decorated with thrift store finds landed her a magazine cover and launched her career. All this before 10 am. I know right. MIND BLOWN.
I also attended sessions on balancing your blog with your day job (a girl has got to eat), developing a style guide for your blog, how to grow your business with social media and met up with some blogging friends and some great brands. This was topped off with an after conference dinner with twenty of these fabulous folks. Sooooo good.
Some takeaways for me? I need to plan better, work on time management (no more hours spent on Pinterest) and develop an editorial calendar. I also want to come up with a new site design which will be unveiled in the next few months. Some new regular columns will also be introduced, more on that later this week.
Sunday was spent hanging out with family at home and having a belated birthday celebration (I kind of ignored my birthday on the 1st). Now it’s Monday and I am exhausted but one happy camper. What did you get up to this weekend?
