I’ve been on a journey for a while now to improve my blog. When I first started blogging back in 1999, I wasn’t planning to try to use blogging to supplement my income or to write something that other people who want to search out and read. When I started writing, I was writing for myself – what I wanted to write and what I wanted to remember, so it’s no surprise that people weren’t exactly flocking to my blog to read it. Lately, though, I’ve been watching other mom bloggers and other bloggers in general, and I have to confess – I am envious. I want to be a successful blogger because I do want people to read what I write, because I want to have something worth reading, and I really love the wonderful friends that I have met through blogging. So I decided that it was time for me to set a blogging goal.
This is my blogging goal. I want to attend Reviewer’s Retreat in May 2011 with my husband and my son. I have been doing reviews for quite a while on my blog, and while I don’t plan to -only- do reviews, I do love the relationships that I have been able to build with brands and PR folks – I just think they have the coolest jobs! The retreat is awesome, and has tons of fun things for my hubby and son to do while I’m networking and connecting with my peeps. So I’m going to make this my goal – to attend this conference. I am hoping to find sponsorship to help pay for my attendance in the conference, but even if I don’t, I will be going and learning, networking and connecting with the coolest people I know – mommy bloggers!
Now the cool part is coming up right here – next Tuesday there is going to be a Reviewer’s Retreat Twitter Party! The twitter party will be all about review blogging and issues that review bloggers run in to – but there will also be conference giveaways and swag! I’m definitely going to be attending this twitter party, and I would LOVE to see you there too! In fact, I really hope I see you at the retreat next May!
