Bloggy Boot Camp–St. Louis, MO

I attended my first blogging conference ever this past weekend.  Bloggy Boot Camp hosted by the SITS Girls!  It was such a great experience!  I’ll give you the details as they happened!

Friday night we met at the Millennium Hotel in Downtown St. Louis and had a cocktail party hosted by Charmin.  Yep, as in the toilet paper people!  When I arrived I was so happy to scan the crowd of ladies and almost instantly spot Erin from How to Nest for Less and Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe.  They introduced me to Debbie from Debbie Does Creations!  I had no idea Debbie was attending so it was an awesome surprise.  These ladies are as fabulous in person as they are on their blogs!

We mingled and talk and chatted and met Tip Junkie.  YES!  That’s right!!!  We met, in person, Laurie Turk from Tip Junkie!  Seriously, one of the nicest, most sincere, down to earth people I have ever met.  She is hilarious.  We even pinky promised with her!  The conversations that night were so much fun getting to know one another!

After the cocktail party, Erin, Kelly, Debbie and I went out to eat together downtown because we weren’t quite ready to go home yet!  We had a great time chatting over some fabulous Italian!

The conference on Saturday was so awesome.  We met so many great bloggers, got to know some great St. Louis bloggers that we can get together with again.  We learned about blogging as a business, working with brands, using social media to promote ourselves and each other, SEO, Design and all about Vlogging (video blogging)!  So much valuable information.  A huge thanks to all who presented and shared their wisdom with us!

A BIG THANKS to Tiffany Romero and Francesca Banducci, the masterminds behind bloggy boot camp!  Such great ladies and such a passion for what they do.  Their passion makes it almost impossible not to hang on their every word!

After a great day of learning and networking…it was time for the Mirassou sponsored wine tasting!  Yes please!  Such great wines!   We also had a photo shoot by Tiffany.

And That’s What Che Said…
