I am SOOOO excited for this weekend!! I’m going to SheCon!! Are you there? Let me know and we can meet up!
When I first found out about this conference back in January I wasn’t working and didn’t have the money to go. I kept looking at it but since it’s new a lot of people couldn’t tell me pros/cons of going and I just couldn’t decide if I had the money to go. Well TY Facebook Blogging Groups. On Tuesday in several of my groups there were several bloggers who had found sponsors and speakers that had free tickets to #SheCon to giveaway! I quickly gave my information and received several emails! Robin from @WDWDads gave me 2 tickets for SheCon in exchange for tweeting about his radio show last night! Hence if you saw me tweeting about @WDWDads #PirateRadio show on @Magic247Radio. They were also giving away several tickets for the Expo!
For those that have never heard of SheCon. SheCon is a Social Media Conference for women bloggers. This is my first blogging conference and I’m super excited!
During the #PirateRadio show they told us to tweet with the hashtag #PirateRadio. I tweeted a question/comment about the blogging topic they were talking about and they were actually reading the feed and answered my comment! One of the co-hosts even said she had been to my blog and loves how I mesh my two passions of Couponing and Catholicism together! That totally made my day!
One of the events of the conference I am really looking forward to is a Disney Scavenger Hunt. #PirateRadio is hosting a special broadcast from downtown disney on saturday night during the hunt and we can win different prizes. The author of the hidden mickeys book is even going to be there!
The Conference is at a Walt Disney World Resort!! It looks super nice and I was able to get a conference rate for less than half the regular price!! It is a moderate hotel and I couldn’t even get a value hotel for this price on a holiday weekend!! Like my mom said we’ll never get this kind of deal ever again (unless we go to another conference in Orlando) so we might as well take advantage!!
I feel like this conference is going to be full of celebrities. One of the Finalists of The Next Food Network Star, Martie Duncan, is presenting at this conference Saturday afternoon about treating your website/blog like a TV Production. It sounds like an interesting idea. I can’t wait to see what she has to say. She is also on #TeamAlton my favorite show!!
I’m leaving work at 3:00PM tomorrow to head to #SheCon. When I asked my bosses if it was okay if I left at 3pm one said, “Sure only if you bring us back some GREAT ideas!” and the other said, “What is Social Media?” It was a tad comical. For all the bloggers that work. Do your co-workers know you have a blog? Do they “get it” or do they just think we’re crazy? So far everyone I have told about my blog (especially older people) think I’m crazy and just write into outer space.
I can’t believe it is almost JUNE!! We are approaching our 1 year anniversary of moving to Florida. I can’t believe we have been here for a year so far. A lot has happened in this past year but I wouldn’t change any of it for the world. That saying is so true about how things really will eventually get better.
