#SoFabCon 2013: How Collective Bias Gets “It”


I’ve had the opportunity to attend several blog conferences this year. Blog conferences are a great way to network with other bloggers and brands, and learn some tips and tricks to improve this little part of the web.

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to attend SoFabCon in Bentonville, Arkansas, a conference organized by Collective Bias. You may recognize Collective Bias as a company that I partner with often — in my experience, they have been the company most interested in providing quality opportunities for bloggers with competitive pay. I was excited for the chance to learn more about Collective Bias, meet some of the employees that I’ve come to know and love online, and, basically, figure out what I could do to better my relationship with them.

Thank You to the #Brandcation DESTINation Sponsors!

Destin Resort-013

While it may have looked like I just spend a weekend playing in the sun and sand during my Destin resorts vacation, I actually was there to learn from and connect with other bloggers and brands. That’s what #Brandcation is all about!

Upon our arrival at the Emerald Grande, I got to meet the ladies I would come to know and love over the next few days. We sat down together to talk about the sponsors that made this trip possible, and receive some products to test during our trip.

I wanted to take a moment to thank these sponsors — without whom this trip wouldn’t have been possible — and to highlight a few of the products that I really enjoyed.

Bubbles with Grandpa


The Nerd’s parents came to visit over Easter weekend. While they were here, we went to the Perot Museum, ate dinner at Chuy’s and did a little shopping. But the coolest thing we did was sit on the back patio in the evening while Andrew and Grandpa played with bubbles.

Some Thoughts on Blissdom


Last week, I attended my first “real” blogging conference — Blissdom. It was really nice to get away for a few days and be around people who “get” me and this blogging thing that I do. I got to meet lots of great people and I got to know some local bloggers a little better.

I’m still processing the experience, but I wanted to share a few of my thoughts with you before Mommy Brain kicks in and I have no recollection of the weekend at all.

Getting Ready for Blissdom!

Blissdom Business Card

Each year around this time, I see all of the bloggers I admire tweeting and posting about Blissdom, a fun, sparkly blogging conference. Well, this year, I’ll be one of them! The Blissdom organizers announced last year that they were moving the conference to the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine — right down the road from me. I couldn’t have bought a ticket any faster.
