Bloggers' Night Out: The Redux

I am woefully remiss in having waited so long to talk about the awesome that was Bloggers' Night Out.

It. was. awesome.

When sweet Kelcie invited me to come and teach her friends a thing or two about blogging, I thought she was nuts. But, as I prepped for my presentation, I found out I know more than I thought I did. Or, I think I know more than I thought I did. Either way.

I found out I retained a lot of the info I heard at Bloggy Boot Camp. I came to terms with the fact that I'm a total geek for the twitters. I realized, even more than before, how much I love blogging and the community it creates.

And I talked for three hours. THREE. WHOLE. HOURS. Of course, the girls asked some great questions that led to some great discussions. But mostly I talked. For three hours.

I want you to go and check out the blogs of these lovely ladies, and give them some encouragement. Some of them have been blogging for years, and some (ahem, one) of them set up their blog the day before our night out! But they are all fabulous girls who, like me, are trying to find their way around this world of wide webs.

Kelcie is a writer and blogs at Then There Were Three

Candace is a budding photographer who graciously gave me a photo session as a thank you gift.

Kourtney works for March of Dimes and was brave enough to let us have the party at her house. Also, her husband said it was a good thing I'm not a preacher.... as it was obvious from the THREE HOURS OF TALKING that I'm a little long-winded.

Nicki has a blog that's way cuter than mine. AND she has a food blog. Nicki wins.

Amanda's blog is also way cute and she has a whole page of recipes.

Ginger happens to be related to one of my friends... it's a small (blog)world after all.

Sara made me an unbelievably gorgeous canvas. Check her out at The Sassy Polkadot, too. You'll want one of everything.

I wish I had a picture of the whole group of us. It was such a great night, and I'm so honored that they trusted me to inform them.

Thank you, girls, for a wonderful experience.



Now, who's ready for Bloggers' Night Out Part Deux??
