Last weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Washington, DC for Blogger Week's UnConference. I was able to rub elbows with some amazing creatives and I made a few new blogger boos too! Springtime in the capital city offers an amazing climate and some of the most culturally rich energy in the country. I didn't want to leave!
The UnConference was several days of teleconferencing, networking and break-out sessions on topics like; building your brand, how to drive traffic, and collaborating with other bloggers. Meeting veteran bloggers, Yalanda P. Lattimore of dryerbuzz.com and Candice VanWye of browngirlbloggers.com were two of the week's highlights for me. Yalanda and Candice have the kind of online presence that I aspire to. Being able to glean nuggets from them was priceless.
I returned from Blogger Week feeling as excited and inspired as I was when I started Curvy Girls N Curls. I encourage neophytes and seasoned bloggers to attend conferences and events that put you in the same room as leaders in this arena. You will leave invigorated and nourished with nuggets from folks who thrive in the blogosphere.
Here is a big thank you shout out to Jessica Ann Mitchell for organizing a fantastic weekend with great content. Salute!
