A few weeks ago now I drove down to Chicago with some of my local blog friends. We went to Nourished, a conference to learn more about blogging…….food blogging to be exact.
And why would a person want to learn ‘how’ to blog?
Well, if you’ve ever tried to start a blog, you know. It’s a lot harder than you’d think it might be!
Photography, SEO, keywords, trying to write so that you don’t sound like a dufus…….
And yes. See that back there by the subs? That’s tofu folks, and you all know how I feel about soy!
I was to busy chatting with a new friend and fellow natural fertility enthusiast, Jennilyn from Eat a Real Meal, to notice.
Being not so lady like, I was shoveling in the fantastic food on my plate until……with food still in my mouth(again, unladylike) “Oh my gosh…that’s not chicken!”
I am sooooooo glad I do not think soy is healthy. I may just starve because of the gross texture.
I’ll admit it though – I had two of these mini cupcakes and enjoyed every second of them as I bonded with new blogger friends over lunch.
Speaking of friends……
I got the pleasure of spending my day with (L to R) Katie from Kitchen Stewardship, Kelly from Kelly the Kitchen Kop, (me – seriously, when am I gonna learn to keep my chin up! Though the weight that came on after the miscarriage may be affecting that double chin of mine…..) and Dara from Elysium Naturals.
In the nature of a blog conference, we also got photo bombed.
They took off before I got the chance to ask who they were.
So…..new friends that I don’t know you’re name……let’s meet officially. Hi, I’m Donielle. And you are………..?
I’m so glad I got the opportunity to go to the Nourished Food Blogger Conference this year! I was pleasantly surprised at what I took away to add to my blog, and of course how awesome the SWAG bags were, but also how friendly everyone was – even though we all had different ideals on diet and nutrition. People were very open and honest, but also very open and didn’t look down on anyone else because of the way they ate.
Just as a blog conference should be.
I’ve heard next year that’s it’s in Texas! I should go dig out my boots and cowboy hat now.
