Build Your Blog Conference Wrap Up

I'm reclaiming my brain after an information packed Build Your Blog Conference.
My mind is spinning with ideas and I'm excited to say I've already put some of the things I've learned to good use!

These were the highlights that I took away.

The Opening.
First, bravo to the opening speaker for setting the tone.  I knew I was in the right place when I looked around and saw everyone touched by the beautiful words this man spoke about his son.

We are real people.  We have a place in this world.  We can make a difference.

The Classes.
Wow.  Blew my mind and cramped my hands from writing so much.  
I was searching for specific things I needed to learn at this conference.  I got what I came for.  I took a composition book home full of information.
Thanks to those who came and taught.  Your passion for what you do came through.

The Hosts.
Freakin amazing.  Down to earth real people who were not afraid to share.  Thank you for all the tips  and information about how to be better.  And thanks for the reminder to always stay true to who you are!  Sometimes that gets lost and you have to find your way back but that theme was made clear over and over.

The Guests.
I met amazing people.  People who I've followed on Instagram or through their blogs. I never witnessed or heard one unkind word.  We all supported each other.  
We all want each other to succeed.

Take selfies even if you suck.  Noone can be perfect 100% of the time.

The Sponsors.
How you sat for at least 12 hours each day pitching yourself to the 100's of bloggers without ever seeming impatient or tired is beyond me.  Thank you for your time and information that will help us be better!

Bring friends who aren't shy.

This girl is NOT shy.

Look up.  The view is amazing.

The closing.

The TRF Foundation is now on my radar.  I can't wait for March 4th!

Thanks to all involved for an amazing weekend!
