Happy Monday. Hope your weekend was a blast.
Before we get into it too much, the next BB newsletter is heading out today! Be sure and sign up so you don’t miss out (link up top).
If you are just catching up, tomorrow is my due date (!!) . Phil and I spent the entire weekend soaking in the quiet, wrapping up some to-dos and enjoying each others company. Despite the season, the temps actually jumped to the low 70s and everyone seemed to be out soaking in the bonus summer days. The weather is supposed to hold for the week, which is fine for this Michigan gal. Winter will be coming soon enough.
On Saturday Phil and I headed over to Ann Arbor to scope out the farmers market and hit up an incredible baby store.
We snagged a few items for Baby Guster and then headed home to do the standard Saturday afternoon ritual of football and naps.
Sunday was a bit more eventful with some fall decorating, cider donuts and lattes, Sunday night supper and actually packing, zipping and bringing the hospital bag to the car. While I know only 5% of babies are born on their due date, there is just this mix of anxiety, restlessness and anticipation that makes you go overboard in the preparation category. If only this would work on me when I am packing for vacation – total procrastinator.
This weekend I also signed up for Blogging Well Summit! I am super excited to attend because it is lead by the amazing Rita and has a great line-up of speakers.
The best part? It is a virtual conference…oh, and it is FREE!
I love the idea of a virtual conference because you can watch the speakers at any time throughout the weekend, there is no travel involved and you can actually purchase the summit to always have for future reference. Cool right?! While I love connecting with bloggers live, this is such a great supplement to my conference calendar. It never hurts to learn!
From the website:
Join health & wellness bloggers from around the world as you strengthen your brand and gain new knowledge on blog design & development at the first ever Blog Well Summit, October 17-19, 2014.
The Blog Well Summit is a virtual conference that you can attend from anywhere you have an internet connection.
This first event is focusing on design, branding and blog development. Future summits are in the works to tackle other blogging woes like making money and rocking social media!
Here is how it works; each day of the conference will be available for viewing for 24 hours. You can also purchase access to the videos post conference if you miss the dates, want to review or keep them for future reference (I know I plan to do so!). If you do purchase the videos, you will receive a workbook and resource guides.
You can click on the image above or follow this link to the site to register.
Let me know if you are going to the BWS! Let’s be virtual roommates!
What is the best conference you have attended?
I am already planning out my 2015 calendar and would love to hear your suggestions and reviews!
Thanks as always to Katie for MIMM!
