I have no idea!
This is so descriptive of my blog.
I have NOTHING to say.
I just feel compelled to spill things out of my brain
so it doesn't leak.
It's my 1st Amendment Right.
I'm nothing specific.
I have no genre.
(I love saying genre. It makes me sound bilingual.)
In fact, I would say that my blog is downright weird.
One minute I'm being all sentimental about writing on a brand new calendar and the next I'm stressing about naming my chickens!
That is 1st Amendment Weird!
There are blogs I go to because they are
learn how to can blogs
photography blogs ("be higher up than your subjects when you take the photo or you'll give them a double chin.") Best advice EVER!
raising kids blogs
....you name it.
It's out there.
I even have a friend who I love to blog with and she's done all of the above.
She's been to Pioneer Woman's Lodge and stayed!
Ya, amazing, I know!
There have been sad things too.
Blogger friends that have lost people they love.
I've cried with them.
I've even met people through blogging!
I know......weird, right?
Two bloggy buds stayed here while they attended functions at the nearby university or went to weddings.
Another blog buddy stopped by while she was in town visiting her daughter.
Then I went to St. George and met more fabulous women.
Had not met any of them previously, but when we did we picked up conversations like we'd known each other for years.
Nearly two years ago, I did something that for me was totally out of character.
I attended the CBC.
A bloggers conference.
People go to events like that all over the country.
I HATE meeting people.
Maybe I should re-phrase.
I'm terrified of meeting people.
Heart-pounding "what was I thinking" terrified.
But there were so many blogs that were so interesting/hilarious/inspiring to me.
I wanted to meet some of these people.
And I don't have any sisters.
(Only an older brother.
So I'm basically an only child, right?)
So I went.
It was the best time.
I learned about photography, writing, blogging tips
I met such nice amazing people.
You can read about Tauna-overcomes-her-fear-of-people here.
I went to Bear Lake last year and met up with a few other bloggers.
Gigi and Wendy even came!
I haven't been sorry that I've met any of these fabulous people.
They are like the sisters I've never had.
So imagine my excitement when I found out there was going to be another Blogging Conference!
My ticket is bought and I'm ready to go.
I plan on meeting up with some old friends and making some new ones and having a ton of fun!
(Is it OK to use the word old and refer to tonnage when talking about friends?)
We plan on having so much fun we might get kicked out of the state!
This Conference is Cherish Bound.
It's a conference about storytelling and sharing your story.
If you have a family and you want to preserve their history or write about your family, you want to go.
If you have a blog, you want to go.
The classes they have planned sound great.
Do you have to be LDS to be able to attend?
It is open to everyone that wants to be able to write about their family, learn blogging tips or learn about family history.
I have been given a ticket by Cherish Bound.
