BlissDom 2015 goodies
BlissDom 2015 goodies

Attending the Blissdom conference was something I had wanted to do for over two years, and finally in October 2014 it was going to be my turn!!

I’m usually great at conferences and networking – but doing it on my own without knowing anyone was a few steps out of my comfort zone.  Thankfully the brilliant Blissdom leaders had a Newbie Lounge.  By the time I finished my first plate of nachos and salsa, I met other Newbies and together we were Newbies-no-more!

The sponsors greeted us all with open arms and plenty of goodies, whether we were new to the blogging world or seasoned bloggers.   I have to say the Tim Horton’s travel mug is the best insulating/not dropping traveller I have.  Thanks Tim’s!!

Double-newbie

Have you ever invited friends over for a visit, then realized the house is a mess, you don’t have anything to drink, and there’s no food?  That’s how I’m feeling about my blog right now.

I’m a double-newbie:  new to Blissdom and new to blogging.  I know what I want my blog to look liked and this basic blue, no-fun font, and boring layout is not what I had in mind.

I know what I want to say on my blog too.  I hope that the few moments people will spend under the lids will be a fun break in their day.  But I’m not quite there yet either.

So until then, I’ll do a quick company’s coming tidy, stop by the liquor store, and order take out.   You’re welcome to pop by any time.
