So yeah, I went to the Minnesota Blog Conference yesterday. It was my first blogger event ever and I met a ton of people that I've only seen online before. I was really nervous but found that there was not one single person there that would make me cross the street to avoid them. Minnesota nice? You betcha. ;)
It was a good day. My main issue was that I was too much of a dork to just jump in and start introducing myself to people so I spent a lot of time hiding behind my laptop and pregnant belly. I got better as the day went on but still feel like it would have been more fun for me if I'd have tried to engage more people.
So, because I'm still exhausted and still processing things, I present to you... My Day In Tweets.
(Hopefully no one minds that I used a few that were not my own. I spent a lot of time retweeting during the day and often did so when someone tweeted a thought or idea that made me nod in agreement or tweeted at a time when I was too busy crying or laughing. Yeah, did a bit of crying but did WAY more laughing so it worked out in the end.)
*Disclaimer: Many more tweets were tweeted during this day. MANY more. However, in the interest of time and not making your eyeballs bleed, I'm only including around twenty. You're welcome.
All in all? I'm so very glad I went. So much more happened then is reflected in my tweets but it's so hard to get it all down. To all of those that helped me feel welcome, my most sincere gratitude. I only felt like bolting for the door once or twice and each time the urge hit me, someone picked that very moment to say hello, or smile or nod in recognition.
Two different people told me that someone was looking for me because they wanted to meet me. That? Made me so very happy.
