The Daily Blarg and Kristina Pulsipher of Pulsipher Predilections had me laughing right away and feeling right at home. I'll be sharing those tips with you, but you won't get to experience them the way I did with the highly unicorned fake blog examples and the most talk of Bump-Its and Snuggies that I have ever experienced.
I plan to also tell you about the wonderful sponsors for Bloggy Boot Camp. The first to make an appearance was The UPS Store. They had their new luggage boxes and they were filled with mystery swag (free stuff) that would be shipped to the homes of those who were selected. It launched a Twitter frenzy as we all let the Twitterverse know how much we loved UPS Store and their support. As one of the lucky winners, I can't wait to see what my package contains when it arrives on Tuesday. As for the other sponsors, I will be talking about Diaper Buds, Seagate, and OpenSky in future posts.
My advice in this first post:
- Bring business cards! Also, make sure you bring enough business cards so you don't run out.
- There's no need to be scared. Others have been where you are now and chances are pretty good that some in the room are just as scared as you are.
- Fun and blogging definitely go together. In fact, I learned that it's required to have fun while blogging.
- Driving four hours to attend a conference so you don't have to pay for a hotel room leads to caffeine overload and difficulty making it through the conference without a nap.
