I didn’t really know what to expect when I showed up at Blissdom. I knew it was a blogging conference and a big one. By the online posts I read most people seemed to be wowed by Blissdom. I can see why people are. It was flashy!
Blissdom’s purpose I found out while I was there was more to inspire and motivate and also to facilitate that connecting. The speakers were entertaining and fun. There wasn’t a whole lot of technical help. I read somewhere that if you can Google it, it won’t be at Blissdom. So maybe some of the help that I would be interested in is Googleable or maybe there is another conference more along those lines. I enjoyed my time, but I don’t know that I felt inspired and motivated exactly. Actually, I really like where I am. I don’t have dreams of being famous or being on TV. I just want to…share our life and laughs with those who want to read it, and continue to bless my family with some fun things along the way!
I did learn a few things at some of the workshops, but found much of the content way over my head. I felt a little hick at Blissdom. I wanted to say in my best Texas twang. I’m just a wife and homeschool mom running my little blog on the side. Could you repeat that in English? 🙂
I didn’t make it to the evening get togethers, so I can’t tell you about them. Honestly, I don’t drink or dance nor do I watch soap operas–ha ha, so they just weren’t really my thing.
But yes, I absolutely did enjoy Blissdom. It might not have been exactly what I expected, but I was mostly hoping to connect with people, and Blissdom made that very easy. Would I go again? Yes, if it happened to be local again next year, I would try to go. I do think it was worth it!
