Starting this evening, I will be at my first-ever blogging conference up in Harrisburg, PA. It is the Relevant Conference, which is a Christian women’s blogging conference that I am super excited about!
From their mission statement:
The Relevant Conference exists to offer a place of face to face interaction with Christian women bloggers who want to be relevant in the larger blog and social media world. Our goal is to go beyond the surface into intentional blogging and real life living. We support women turning their hearts toward home and using their blogs to bless their families while also engaging the world for the glory of God. Relevant is a one-of-a-kind conference that seeks to engage women by teaching blogging techniques and social media skill while also urging and encouraging women to live fully integrated lives with their faith and family.
I am really looking forward to meeting other like-minded bloggers and learning from the seasoned bloggers and speakers; my hope is to find ways to improve my blog (as Emeril would say “Let’s kick it up a notch!”) and enjoy this conference. And I have to admit, I’m really stoked that I’ll get the opportunity to meet some of my favorite “frugal bloggers” who will be attending, including co-host Dana from Mrs. Moneysaver, speaker Crystal from Money Saving Mom, speaker Alyssa from Kingdom First Mom (one of the Walmart Eleven Moms), and many more! I’m looking forward to traveling and rooming with Liz from Frugally Blonde and Lacy from Catholic Icing and meeting some ladies IRL whose blogs I have enjoyed reading for some time now.
I don’t plan to post much over the weekend while I’m at the conference, and know that I won’t be posting about my favorite Washington Post Sunday insert coupons this Sunday morning since I’ll be out-of-town, but I wanted to let you know that according to Sunday Coupon Preview they are scheduled to have both a Smart Source & Red Plum insert in the October 24th, 2010 edition, so there will likely be some good coupons!
I hope you all have a great weekend and I look forward to sharing next week about my experience at the conference!
