That was last year. A lot has happened in one year for my blog, and I have to say it really stems from ShesConnected. Before the conference last year, I wasn’t ‘in the know’ on how to connect with brands as a blogger. I had approached brands for years as a freelance writer, but as a blogger, that was different. In this past year I have been able to work with top brands in their blogger campaigns, pay it forward by teaching women basic social media skills in my community, and connect with fellow bloggers in a very real and collaborative way. In that aspect, the blogging community is much friendlier than any other business I have worked in. And that makes all the difference to me as a writer and as a mama. I started blogging to connect with other women and to continue my passion for writing, and I am doing just that.
Being away from my children for three days was hard. Last year when I attended SCCTO, it was the first time I had slept away from them. And this was the second time I slept away from them! But this three day trip away from my family was also exhilarating, nerve racking and exciting at the same time.
So get ready for great new posts, fantastic brand collaborations and a new design in the works for Ask Mama MOE. I will have more posts coming about the ShesConnected Conference and who I met in Toronto in the weeks to come. Stay tuned!
