Bloggy Bootcamp San Diego: The Real Deal

Ok, so I was too busy with returning to reality and all to really pour over all the important details that you are dying to know about my Bloggy Bootcamp adventure this weekend.  You asked for it and here it is, the real, unabridged version (it's not really that long)....

1.  It was awesome: I was husband and childless and in San Diego.  It felt a little strange, but wonderful all at the same time.

2.  I learned A LOT: Like how to create a brand and what the heck an SEO is (don't ask me, I still don't really know).

3.  I met my blog idols and now real-life friends: Little Miss Momma and Momma Go Round.

4.  I met other bloggers that I didn't know before, but now I adore.  Such as:

5.  I was supported and encouraged: Blogging is not a competition; One person's success is everyone's success; There is room for eveyone in the blogosphere, but there's no room for jealousy; Be yourself, use your voice. 

It made my heart full to be in a room of fellow bloggers supporting and encouraging each other.  And I can't forget an extra special shout-out to a most wonderful and beautiful lady who specifically encouraged me just when I needed it.  She gave me that push that I needed.  Thank you, Life Buy the Beach (she's the real life momma of Little Miss Momma)!
