Well, if you follow me on Twitter, then you know how very excited I am about an upcoming trip.  A trip that will include meeting and connecting with a lot of former, current, and (hopefully) future clients.  There are so many women going that I just can’t wait to shake hands with, hug, and otherwise just get to know face-to-face. 

Next month, I’ll be in Nashville, Tennessee  at a blogging conference called Blissdom.  Have you heard of it?  Have you been before?  Do you have any advice for this conference newbie? 

I have so many mixed emotions about this trip!  Some Mommy Guilt about leaving the Littles behind with my husband and family…  Anxiety about whether or not people will actually like me…  Disbelief that I’m packing my bags for 5 days and flying off to a conference where I don’t know a single soul…  Excitement over getting to learn from some leading professionals in the online/internet industry…  And I’m absolutely giddy (GIDDY!) that I will have 5 full days all by myself.  BY MYSELF.  I haven’t had 5 days to myself since before I was married, almost 10 years ago.  To say that I’m looking forward to this alone time is an understatement.  As I tweeted last week, I’ll get to sleep, interact with adults, and actually read, and stuff.  I can’t wait!

If you’re going, I’d love to hear from you!  And potentially meet up at the conference!

A few things to note before closing… 

  • I’ve added 9 new designs to the galllery!  Be sure to check them out!  Do you have a favorite?
  • I’ve updated my design menu with new features, a new format, and some of the a la carte items have new prices.
  • My current design schedule is currently about 4-6 weeks.  We’ve had a recent influx of orders and I’m trying desperately to get back on schedule.  (Y’all know how to keep a girl busy!)
  • Don’t forget that I’m giving away a Deluxe blog design during a Twitter contest on Monday, January 30th.  I hope you’ll join us!

And don’t forget to leave a comment if you’re going to Blissdom!  I’d love to meet up with you!
