I wasn’t expecting to attend more than one blog conference this year. Since I’m in my first year of blogging, I opted to attend Bloggy Bootcamp in Philadelphia back in May. I figured that it would be a good intro blog conference for me – relatively small and packed with great blogging information. But I also came across Fitbloggin’ – a conference for bloggers interested in fitness, health, good food and healthy lifestyles. I was intrigued but I ultimately chose not to attend Fitbloggin’ because I felt that the conference might be too narrow for my interests and I didn’t want to pigeon-hole myself.
But a funny thing happened over the last couple of months. As I continued blogging, I’ve found myself drawn to a community of bloggers – people who seem to be able to articulate many of the thoughts that swirl around in my head, people who get the sometimes crazy things that one will do for what they love and are passionate about, people who support me. More than anything, those people are part of the health and fitness community.
I’m so excited for the opportunity to be attend Fitbloggin’ this year and to meet many of these people and hear them speak. I will be one of the Fitbloggin’ Assistants and will be LiveBlogging Friday’s session on Attracting Local Media & Finding Success as a Freelance Writer with Carla Birnberg aka MizFitOnline. I think that many of you know that I really admire Carla. I’m honored to cover her session and I really hope that I will be able to do her justice. When I said that people seem to articulate the thoughts in my head? <– Carla
So now it’s on to the hard task of packing. I hate packing. I can pack for my kids in 10 minutes flat but it takes me forever. And, inevitably, I overpack. I plan on bringing workout clothes and some cute casual clothes during the day but I also wanted to bring a nicer dress (or two) for the evenings. Otherwise my poor clothes never get to see the light of day!
Yesterday, I asked for some advice on what I should bring. Here are the “nice clothes” option. What do you think? Two of the dresses have started to emerge from Facebook and Instagram comments but I still can’t decide!
Which two workout tops should I bring? PS I really want to do the Reebok Crossfit WOD on Friday morning.
I’m super excited. Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see what’s going on all weekend. I have a feeling that I’m going to be sharing a lot of pictures. What? Me? Instagram obsessed??
What do you wear to blogging conferences? What else do you pack? I’m pretty sure I’m going to forget something. Will you be at Fitbloggin’??
