A year and a half ago, I didn't even know what a blog was. I thought it was where cranberries like to be harvested. It is amazing what a big part of my life it has become in just a year's time. I have a whole new group of friends: my 'blog posse'. Some of these new friends are local, and our mutual love for blog-land has brought us together. I have met other bloggers, that I am sure IRL, we'd be best buds. For now we are just content to leave sweet comments of encouragement. One day, in glory, maybe we'll get to have coffee.
I also have some new blog-friends that don't have the faintest clue that I exist, kinda like the freshman admiring the senior. That list includes Lysa, the Nester, and Beth. They are amazing women that I truly admire. I am sure if I came within 30 feet of them, I would forget my name and my deodorant would immediately stop working. Of course, I know that they are each daughters of the king and we would totally hit it off (especially all of us being from the south).
I just might get to meet a few of those fellow blog maidens. Lysa T. is offering a scholarship to the She Speaks Conference. This year they are having seminars for bloggers!!!
The few times I have had the opportunity to do either (speak or write publicly), I've been acutely aware of my lack of knowledge and training.
Oh to gather together with other women and sharpen my skills as a writer, speaker and blogger! So, I'm off to sign up to win that scholarship!
Anyone else going? We could be roomies...
