Bloggy Boot Camp

Normally quiet, shy and reserved until you get to know me and more than happy to hide behind my laptop, I went out on a limb thinking no one else I knew would be attending (except Mommy of a Monster, who is now not able to attend after all) and bought a ticket for my first blogging conference.

I don't know what I was thinking... I'm not overly comfortable in large groups, especially when I don't know anyone, but
that was more than seven months ago. Now, I have so many friends via Twitter, Letters For Lucas and the mommy blogging community in general that are going to be at Bloggy Boot Camp tomorrow that I am peeing in my pants excited!!

Bloggy Boot Camp is a blogging conference hosted by the SITS (The Secret to Success is Support
) community. There are six events this year around the country and this one just happens to be in my back yard.

The event is limited to 125 attendees, so where I once was afraid, I am now looking forward to the intimate setting and because I still consider myself a relatively new blogger, I can't wait to network and learn what the pros recommend.

The speaker line-up sounds amazing too. I am particularly excited about seeing/hearing/meeting Mama Mary of The Mama Mary Show, whom I have had fun on Twitter with and Kathy, aka Mama Kat, the blogger behind Mama's Losin' It. Each week I participate in her nearly world famous, Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop.

I'm sure I'll walk away mind boggled and inspired.

Check back next week when I share highlights and be sure to let me know if you 're planning to be there too.

I am very much the same way as you described yourself in the beginning but I went out on a limb and decided to go to BlogHer this year. I'm not going to Bloggy Boot Camp but I hope you have a good time and share what you learn.

Are you blogging from Vegas?!? :) I, too, am nervous and excited about Bloggy Bootcamp. I don't get to write as much as I want nor do I consistently read all the wonderful blogs I follow but I am so inspired by you and the other women and can't wait to meet them and hear what they have to say. And I'm super happy I'll know at least one person there! I'll give you a call tomorrow, my folks are going to help LK with the kids so I'm in!

I am going to the one in Chicago this summer and it will be my first conference. I'm sure you will have a great time. I'm anxious to hear all about it.

I'll see you in San Diego - heading down in a few hours. I'm like you... usually just hide behind my laptop, but I am so excited to see everyone in person. It should be a fun weekend.

Really looking for hearing about your experience. I really want to attend something like this one day. Will need to figure out what works for me.

It was nice meeting you briefly at Bloggy Boot Camp. I'm glad I did, so that I could read your lovely blog! My son is obsessed with Thomas the Train as well. A few months ago we took him to Perris to the Day Out with Thomas event, where he got to ride on the "real" Thomas train!

I wish I did Bloggy Boot Camp first. I did Blissdom which was great but also very overwhelming for a newbie from NY. Have fun!
