Bloggy BootcampI had the best day yesterday connecting with other bloggers at Bloggy Bootcamp here in St. Louis. 

Thanks to SITS Girls community, women bloggers have a way to connect with members of the online community with Bloggy Boot Camps hosted in a variety of major U.S. cities annually.

If you are looking to learn more about blogging and social media, then #1 you should head over to SITS Girls and get active in their community.  #2 you should seriously consider attending one of the other three Bloggy Bootcamps this year!  Bloggy Bootcamp is not only one of the most inexpensive blog conferences around, but it’s an intimate one day event that focuses on the business of blogging and writing.  You will have the opportunity to network, share, learn and be inspired by warm approachable bloggers….no egos.

I just can’t say enough about Tiffany and Francesca, two beautiful, amazing women who sure do know how to share and put on a blogging conference!  I also want to thank Laurie, Tip Junkie, Cynthia, NW Designs,  Dali, Secrets to Web Success, Allison, Sway Group, Annie, Mama Dweeb, and Danielle, Danielle Smith Media for sharing all of their awesomeness!  You ladies rock my blogging world!

A few of my favorite quotes from Bloggy Bootcamp St. Louis

  • Branding is what people say about you when you are not in the room ~ Laurie, Tip Junkie (that girl has some crazy smarts!)
  • Be loyal to your readers and they will be loyal to you ~ Laurie, Tip Junkie
  • Figure out how to be a brands hero – Allison, Sway Group
  • Know your strengths and weaknesses and surround yourself with people who are opposite ~ Tiffany, SITS

and remember: The Secret to Success is Support

I also have to give a quick shout out to Lisa from Blessed with Grace for carpooling with me! We both live near by and have chatted several times, but never had the chance to get together.  Lisa was every bit as sweet in person and I can’t wait to spend more time together in the future!

Speaking of rocking my world……….there were some GREAT ideas linked up again this week at I’m Lovin’ It!  Take a look at what caught my eye.
