A week ago today I was headed out the door to my 1st-ever blogging conference. Did I know what a blogging conference was? No, not really.
Today, a week later I think back on all that took place during those ah-mazing 3 days though. In my mental recap I ask ...
Did I learn to blog? No.
Did I meet many other incredible bloggers? Yes.
Did I have a mind-renewing experience? Yes, Oh yes!
Experts in their field gave mini-workshops for 2 days. Whether it was -business ways of today /social media, or writing motivation- "just write", or photography tips and techiniques- you tubing & better portrait taking, I gained some knowledge from these particular professionals.
Hosea 4:6 says, "...my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge." So, since I'm seeking to survive :-) & get some knowledge for life, I would have preferred more knowledge provided on how to blog or run a blogging business, but... I believe God always provides for me in the ways He knows I need, when I least expect it.
So, how did He provide ?
2) Blissdom Corporate Partners showered us with generous gifts every time we turned a corner. For where I am in my life, it was like a whisper from God saying, "I love you and want to bless you." So, I was motivated to carry on, not give up, and push through to where He is taking me and wanting to bless me as I have heard the Lord saying lately, "Behold, I will do a new thing."
3) I am also grateful to now know so many more amazing women on a similar journey that I am on, and I am encouraged by each of their lives.
I would say BLISSDOM was exactly what the word states- "Bliss" - for a couple of days to step away from the "work" of life , be refreshed, and receive focus to again step back into my world and see it as 'wonderful', with an incredible direction that I get to walk in.
Check out some of my favorite photos from the conference below.
Scott Stratten on 'unmarketing'. He was so on target & spectacular!
