I’m back from my weekend at Blissdom. I don’t even know how to write this post! I had such a fun time, met so many new friends and lost a lot of sleep. Here is my weekend according to my 1000 grainy, night iphone pics :)
Blissdom took place at the Gaylord Texan; which that in itself could be an entire post! It’s HUGE- and I am from Texas. I also have a good sense of direction and I got lost a few times.
When I arrived, I had never actually met my roommates in real life! I didn’t really know anyone. Who does that? They could be old men pretending to be girls then try to kill me. Thankfully that didn’t happen and they were my favorite part! Allison, Jamie and Jess = amazing.
When I tell someone I have a blog they either don’t get it or don’t like it, even my best friends and family are still confused. Literally my dad asked my mom “what is a blog?” when I was gone. It was fun to be around people who get it. So for me that was my favorite part of Blissdom… the girls.
There was a lot of eating at the Mexican food restaurant in the Gaylord.
As far as the speakers and the sessions… honestly I don’t really think I learned anything so important. There were some really inspiring speeches. Most of the speakers were kind of telling their stories; which I’m a sucker for a good story – it’s just not really what I expected. I wish I would have learned a little more about the art of blogging; SEO, money talk, scheduling… stuff like that. Or at least a little more hands on. I took a variety of classes and I learned some words of wisdom. At the very least I can maybe make a craft from one of my favorite quotes ha!
I learned more from hanging out with smart, creative women all weekend than I did from the classes. And that’s OK. You know what else is ok… having a blast at the Girls Night :) Chris Mann and Amber Riley played at the Glass Cactus. Then they opened to the public and the Spazmatics came on, who I know from Houston – they are an 80′s cover band who I LOVE. You can call us Spazmatics Groupies!
