Today I leave for my first conference on blogging, BLISSDOM ’13 at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, TX. I am excited and a little nervous as to be expected. I’ve gone through tons of scenarios of what to pack, what to wear, do I design a business card? It can keep girl up at night. And let’s not mention the website. What we have here Grapevine, it a WORK in PROGRESS.
So I did all the math, and decided the following:
- What to bring: My iPhone, my iPad, a notepad/pen and a smile
- What to wear: layers–whether inside freezing in air conditioning or roasting in the sun, a nice tee or cami and a cardi with nice pants or jeans is the way to go. Shoes? Nice slip ons, ballet flats, now is not the time to rock the heels and suffer for fashion
- Business Cards: I debated weeks on this one. I chose, not this year. I want to focus on Blissdom, not crafting a logo that I will sure to wanna redo as soon as I get back.
- Be Tara. At the end of the day, I want to represent me, and who I am now, not who I think I should be.
