As I mentioned in my post last Monday, I recently attended Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged 2013 Conference.
It was my first blogger conference, and even though I was nervous going in not knowing anyone, it was a fantastic weekend of learning, laughing and meeting lots of fellow bloggers who are inspiring and amazing!
Here are some of the highlights:
-The Foodie Friday afternoon of speakers was packed with great info from health tips, chef advice and food blogging talk. We got to taste test some delicious quinoa, too! (Thanks for organizing it, Debbie.)
-I competed in my first Iron Chef competition on the wonderful team #2 and we made two delicious dips!
-Yarnell's ice cream/frozen yogurt break!
-I learned more about WordPress and I'm hoping to move over soon, so I'll keep you updated on the transfer.
-BooMama was such an inspiring and fantastic speaker who reminded us that all bloggers are in this together and our blog can serve a greater purpose.
-I got to hear from 7 really fun and accomplished female authors and I got a few of their books, which I can't wait to read!
I learned so many other things that this space is not even big enough to cover. But I'm so thankful to AWB for running the conference (and Ferncliff for hosting us) and giving bloggers a place to "Gather, Grow and Connect."
And look for some AWBU-inspired recipes to come.
