I had a wonderful time at the Blissdom conference seeing old friends, making new ones and getting to know some really great women at a deeper level. As a Community Leader in the business track, I met a lot of women making a living in or around social media, but I missed the chance to connect with many outside that niche.
I brought my tool belt and work boots (which, BTW, took up a ton of space in my small carry-on), but I never wore them. Well, I wore the work boots on my trip home because otherwise I would have had to leave my three new canvas bags, five new t-shirts and a copy of The Lorax back at the hotel along with my bottles of VO-5 shampoo.
Or something like that.
Anyway, had I been bold enough to break out my Renovator Kim outfit (seriously, don’t call it a costume even if I do wear it in almost all my videos), I’m sure there would have been some sort of Law of Attraction thing going on and we would have met. But I can still read their blogs, and so can you.
Here are five home/house/DIY bloggers that I did not meet at Blissdom, but wish I had:
Who else did I miss at Blissdom? More importantly, do you think any of these ladies would want some of my vintage fabric? Do you? It’s free to a good home.
About that photo: I was fortunate to spend lots of time with both Carol Schiller, the community manager at Cozi, an online family calendar that I love, and Stephanie Schwab who is, among other things, creator of the Digital Family Summit.
