The highs and lows of DPCON12If you've been reading any of my blog recently, you will know I have had a weekend away in Melbourne, attending the Digital Parents Conference.
If you were watching the tweetstream of #DPCON12, you'll see how much social media chat there has been surrounding the event.
The social media chat is nothing in comparison to the chat that goes on in real life at such events!
- The socialising. It was tops. I spent a great deal of time with close friends. I hope on hope that I did not ever appear "cliquey". But I am proud, very proud, of my posse. They are the girls who know me, who I can truly relax with, who "get me" totally. I can cry ugly snot with them, and they do not judge, and I love them. So I will not apologise for spending a great deal of lovely time with them.
- The new friendships made and deepened. Bloggers I know I clicked with, from real life and from blogging - we sought one another out for the first time or again - to share. To hug, to chat. To laugh. Gold.
- The content. Blogging for social good, presented by Darren from ProBlogger, was a panel discussion that made the cogs of my brain start whirring. The idea of blogging for social good is still whispering in my ear and and echoing in my heart. Watch this space.
- I was also avidly involved with Nicole Avery's Blog Coaching Boost session, and came away with this - set yourself an absolute goal for your blog, stick to it. and then the decision making process in relation your blog becomes easy. Oh, how obvious, but how I need to hear and implement that!
- The Kleenex Mums Photo Booth. Tops!
- Hotel breakfasts. I bloody LOVE hotel breakfasts.
I had a wonderful time.
If you regret not going, promise yourself that next year you will?
I worked closely with a brand, as their brand ambassador, to attend the Digital Parents Conference. I
am very grateful to Kitchenware Direct for their support. I am planning on sharing my thoughts in relation to working with brands on my blog over the next few days - so watch out for that - it will give non-conference attendeeds a taste!
