I attended my very first blogging conference this past weekend. And since I know how fun it is for you to hear about trips that you yourself did not go on, I’m going to tell you all about it. So, what did I do at Blissdom?
I stared very intently at things.

I found a new boyfriend named Joe Jonas.
I purchased a lovely souvenir, a gorgeous little watercolor by Suzanne McDermott.
I breathed a “MY PEOPLE” sigh of relief at the sight of hundreds of glowing iPhone and iPad and laptop screens at the opening keynote.
I stared intently at more things.

I watched hundreds of mombloggers kinda lose their shit a little when Rascal Flatts played their “Life Is A Highway” cover from Cars.
I went to a Facebook session, and even though it makes me nervous to ask people to publicly declare they enjoy me rambling about my uterus and Diet Coke, I got inspired to set up a brand-new Facebook page. Go like me if you wanna, pretty please?
I discovered that corporations like to give bloggers free stuff. Bags and bags and bags of swag.
I was disappointed that Emily‘s baby Paul was not included in my swag.
I didn’t get my fancypants camera out of its bag until I snapped a few photos on the way out of the hotel.
I went to Me Ra Koh‘s photography session, where she totally made me cry but also inspired me to come home and keep shooting, that my style is legitimate and artistic.
I had fun getting one-on-one time with my friend Kim and finding instant friends in other twin moms.
I learned that red wine gives me headaches.
I liked hanging out with the Indy Geek Girls so much I sang John Mellencamp karaoke.
I realized that I really do have a passion for all this computer/blogging/internet/social media stuff, and promised myself I would make more time for it this year.
I came home and announced to my husband that Blissdom 2013 is already on my calendar.
