Go Blog Social - Handmade in the Heartland

Go Blog Social

authentic self quote scott stratten

Friday and Saturday I attended Go Blog Social, a blogger conference here in Kansas City.  It was so much fun! It was just what I needed- a few days all by myself (no kids pulling at my legs) learning lots of info and hearing really awesome people tell their stories. I loved it! I learned so much and gained a lot of motivation to keep going with this whole blogging thing and make it better with every post. A few ideas that kept coming up throughout the conference were to be authentic, create original content, and know the "brand" of your blog and keep that promise to your readers- continually produce content that keeps inline with your brand. Here are a few highlights:

1.  Ampersand Design Studios- they showed the above quote during their presentation which i love. Also i've been blog stalking them for a while now and it was SO fun to meet these girls.  Best graphic designers in KC!

2. J's Everyday Fashion- like woah i totally met the girl that's all over pinterest :) She was SO hilarious and down to earth cool! Loved what she had to say and i just ordered the book  "The War of Art: Break Through the Blocks and Win Your Inner Creative Battles" because she loved it so much and quoted from it. I'm totally stoked to read it.

3. Meg Biram-  I was super excited to meet and hear Meg because I had actually signed up for a blogger event that she put on last year and got food poisoning that day and couldn't go! So it was awesome to hear her share her thoughts and advice.

Another awesome aspect of Go Blog Social was meeting so many other KC and midwest bloggers! I felt a little stalker-ish because i have been reading several of these girls blogs for awhile now and i felt like i knew them a little bit! ha! I love to make new friends and you should check out these awesome girls' blogs too.
