Sometimes there are experiences that are just so awesome that it’s hard to talk about them. It’s been almost a month to the day and I am still having a hard time corralling my thoughts about my time at The Blogcademy. What I do know, best cialis buy viagra however, is that I wish I could experience it all over again.
The Blogcademy is a two day blogging workshop, taught by three smart, charming, magical women who run very successful blogs and businesses. The one I attended was in Portland. I’ve been reading Gala and Shauna’s blogs for years and am already humongous fans, and while I knew about Kat and her blog Rock ‘n Roll Bride, I had never taken the time to check her blog out…cause…I’m, uh… married and don’t really care about weddings. HOWEVER. That being said…I was SO, SO, SO impressed by Kat’s business acumen- and just her overall BEING, that Damn…she has gone and won herself a slobbering Super Fan.
That’s Shauna and Kat right there.
Gala and the amazing Made U Look ladies, who did the photography and videography.
My GIANT FACE. Have you ever seen my face on this blog? No. I am behind the times and I need to start practicing my Blogger Face. It’s a thing. I learned that. See? Learning is awesome.
I find it funny that even though I have been blogging for almost twelve years, I feel like I don’t really know much about it aside from using it as a form of personal expression. I’ve never really been interested in it being more until recently and The Blogcademy was like a crash course in How To Blog. It’s like I’ve been stumbling along and doing alright, but have somehow missed some important basics. I picked up tips and ideas (that I should have known by now) that left me in a bit of a daze afterward. An excited, floaty daze of Awesomeness. I got great feedback, great ideas and met a bunch of awesome women. I was seriously depressed when I went back to work and sat in my cubicle, which has NO MAGIC WHATSOEVER, and realized that it was all over. I had graduated from The Blogcademy.
Now I’m just trying to take what I have learned and apply it with thought and intention.
It was also my Birthday that weekend, which when I was not at class, could be summed up with this:
I also ate about a million different kinds of pate, that but that stuff does NOT photograph well.
So…you will see some changes round these parts. Nothing crazy. Hopefully just MORE.
