I can’t believe that it’s been a WHOLE year since I began blogging. My first blog post ever was June 9, 2009 and it was a business resource post for up coming mom entrepreneurs. In the beginning my posts were business related then I seemed to gravitate away from that and started to focus on current events,Â mommy hood, my graphic design business, occasional product reviews and giveaways!
I have grown so much in the last year and have met so many GREAT bloggers from attending conferences like Bloggy Bootcamp in Baltimore, MD this past March. I am looking forward to Type A Mom in Ashville, NC this coming September andÂ Blogalicious in Miami, FL this coming October.The amount of training you get at these conferences is amazing. I had no clue about SEO (Search Engine Optimization), Disclaimers when reviewing a product, or building my brand. Attending a blog conference helped me gain the knowledge and put everything into perspective. Meeting blog friends is a BONUS and the networking is PRICELESS!
I love when I have created a genuine bond and relationship over the web and we can FINALLY meet at a blog event. It’s one of the best feelings in the world. I love the amount of supportÂ that is shown and the willingness to listen and be there if I ever needed to talk or just need to VENT! I have made so many AWESOME connections and met some great people who are the best at networking. I’m truly blown away! It’s great to know that there are people that I can tweet a question to and within a few minutes receive an answer. I am truly thankful for the great clubs that I am apart of that have guided me with GREAT resources into the Blogger I am today! I am still growing as a blogger and making my mark in the blogosphere but, to ALL my bloggy friends and my immediate TRIBE! I just want to say Thank you! Muah!
I’m now a Twitterholic, Facebook Addicted, Needing Bloggers Anonymous Mommy Blogger and I LOVE IT! All my friends in the blogosphere have truly made this first year AMAZING!
