SchipulCon and New Friends

October 16, 2009

For the past two days I’ve been attending SchipulCon, which was put on by the company my brother works for. And I’ve gotta give my friend Maggie a ton of credit because she basically put the whole thing together, and it was amazing. I learned so much about social media, personal branding, and blogging that my mind is buzzing with ideas. I’m so looking forward to when I’ll have time to put them into effect.

Another fun thing about the conference was that Lauren From Texas came! And no surprise, she’s every bit as fabulous in real life. We also got to meet up with Chelsea from Roots and Rings for dinner last night, which was a total bonus. These are two ladies who are after my own heart, which is actually not easy to find. So I’m really looking forward to getting to know them better, and if you like me, you’ll probably like them too so click over!


The conference was held at the Houston Zoo (check out THAT website to see the wonders that Schipul can do. How I wish I could afford such a thing!) so we also got to see the adorable animals. I always feel compelled to take pictures of them when I’m there, but then I never look at them again. So anyway, a couple pictures for posterity.





And that’s all I’ve got to wrap up the week folks! I used up my days off for the conference so now I have to work back to back 12-hour shifts this weekend! Hope to be back next week in one piece.

    For as many things that I didn’t like about attending BlogHer, one really fabulous thing was I got to meet some bloggers I’ve been following in the flesh. And I made a few new friends, too. In some ways, it was worth it. Glad you got a little something out of attending this conference, too!
