The Declare Conference is a Christian Blogging Conference in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I was thrilled to be invited to go last year. It was my first time to attend a blogging conference, and I had a great time. Everyone was so nice!
I began my blog with a business in mind. I have (gasp) published a post every day since I began blogging almost three years ago! My husband is an engineer and extremely frugal when it comes to entertainment. Things like vacations, theme parks, and movies were not budgeted. As a homeschooling mom I dreamed of…well just getting out of the house once in a while. My husband encouraged me to start blogging with the promise that the income from it would be used for vacations and other fun family outings. Last year I was able to take the family on our first big vacation through blogging! We took a Bahama cruise and took the kids to The Magic Kingdom and Busch Gardens! I also had the amazing opportunity to go to Peru with Operation Christmas Child! This summer we are planning a family vacation to Branson, Missouri. It has been so fun to see so many of my dreams come true!
This world of blogging is forever changing and growing, and I have found that meeting with other bloggers through conferences and other ways has been hugely instrumental in my success. We learn from each other. At The Declare Conference I am excited to continue to grow as a blogger, but also to be encouraged as a Christian, by others who know and understand the ups, downs, and challenges of the blogging world.
I am so excited to reconnect with bloggers I have met and meet new friends! I’d love to meet you at The Declare Conference!
Oh you will LOVE Branson!!! My family went there twice when I was in jr high/high school.
How exciting! I’ll have to watch for this next year and try to make it. I don’t think we have the funds this year with the move. I can’t wait to hear about your experience!

Ok Esther I begged my hubs on more than one occasion!! I told him I could stay at your house! LOL not really…BUT he still said NO. Now promise you will fill me in on every little detail!
Maybe next year!
I’m trying to talk them into possibly selling recordings of the Conference and sessions! 🙂
Have sooo much fun friend!
