Found Fun :: Bloggy-Boot-Camp :: St-George-Utah

I attended Bloggy Boot Camp this past weekend in St. George, Utah. I was intimidated and nervous at first but I donned my superwoman outfit: a pair of the cutest 3 inch heeled boots, skinny jeans and a cowl-necked sweater. For the first time in a while I felt like a real human being that was dressed, made up, and smelling pretty! I was relieved that everyone there was so approachable and didn't seem to mind when I brought my 7 month old to lunch so he could have his lunch. I think he even charmed Ted Rubin of Opensky who didn't act at all fazed that I breast-fed at the lunch table. I was under cover of course and the 7 month old had a cooler scene to get to once he was happy and full. I spent a day with fellow bloggers learning a lot about what I want to do with my space here on the internet. I am inspired and still entertained. I became a little more comfortable with networking and it was reminiscent of my 9 to 5 working days.

Boot camp was sponsored by, The UPS Store, Seagate and an appearance was made by Opensky (Ted Rubin). I had an enjoyable time at lunch discussing the Opensky platform with Ted, he energized us all (at his table and during his presentation) about social networking and the future of buyer/seller relationships. We heard from Miri Leigh who will soon be found on Food Network and were inspired by her story and her tenacity!

I learned and reconfirmed so much about blogging and my interactions on Twitter and other social networking outlets and I made a myriad of friends and acquaintances. Bloggy Boot Camp was such an enjoyable experience that I'm hoping to attend the Veteran Track at the San Diego camp next year! These women were amazing and shared so much with us. And most of all, they helped us all feel at home and comfortable with whatever we want our blogs to be!

Check out Bloggy Boot Camp and their 2011 calendar in case you missed it this year! You won't be disappointed!
