The time has finally come! I’m leaving on my flight in the morning (Wednesday) and heading to PA. It seems like forever since I signed up to go to this conference…and I wasn’t one of the early birds. I have been working hard to get my blog in more decent shape so I could attend this conference feeling somewhat “worthy” to be there. I think that feeling will vanish quite quickly after I get there and people get talking about the technology of their blogs…or the monetization of their blogs.
Have I learned a lot in the last 6 months about blogging, writing, computers, etc. YES, YES, YES! I have also learned that I have so much more to learn!! I’m hoping to get some answers to my questions at this conference. I expect that while I’m getting some of those answers, I will get many more questions as well! It will be fun just to be around others who do this. I have slowly found a few people who do this locally but we all seem stuck on the same places…or they do something different (not wordpress) so don’t struggle with a problem that I have. I have found a few books that have been VERY helpful but people are much better.
So, starting Thursday afternoon, RELEVANT 10 will begin. It is the tightest schedule I have come across in any conference I have ever attended! No breaks. No pauses (to get our breath. to think.) It will be a non-stop conference with meals and some fun too. By the time it is over, I expect to be worn out! Either that, or I’ll be so revved up that I’ll be talking a mile a minute. (I’d rather that didn’t happen. It will drive anyone near me nuts!)
So count me in with the 200 christian women bloggers who will arrive in Harrisburg, PA. It should be a fun group but a group who desire to serve God and influence others to glorify Him in many aspects of life. Please pray for us. Pray for safety as all of us travel from across the US, some will come with their nursing infants. Pray for our speakers. They will need wisdom in our sessions. Pray for good health for us so we can maximize the benefit from the conference.
I’ll blog when I can. See you here soon.
PS. It’s now Thursday. I arrived safely and on time for all my flights yesterday. Had wonderful rest at Steve and Patty’s home last night along with a delicious meal when we stopped in Media, PA on the way home. Fall is in the air. It is a beautiful, clear day. The colors on the trees are beautiful to this (now) TX girl (who has lived among beautiful fall trees before!)
Now I am checked into the hotel, am unpacked, had lunch and got my nametag and goody bag for the conference. In about 2 hours, the conference will start. I have seen a few people whose faces I recognize. Should be interesting. Bring it on:)
