When I started blogging a few months ago I didn’t realize all the “other” stuff that goes into blogging. Real bloggers have their own language and etiquette. I was lost. I just wanted to be a cool girl with a blog. I have always wanted to be famous, but being a shy girl from rural Arkansas kind of stood in my way.
stalking following bloggers via Twitter and all they talk about are these blogging conferences. I wanted to go, but I knew I couldn’t afford to travel half way across the country and the idea kind of scared me. I stumbled upon the Arkansas Women Bloggers group one day and guess what: they have a conference!
I started reading about the group and joining in on Twitter Parties. I wanted to go, but I still had to find the money. GUESS WHAT!?!?! Arkansas Farm Bureau is providing me with a scholarship to attend! How wonderfully awesome. I now get to attend guilt free!
Not only do I need to get away for a weekend, I need to learn this language of the blogging veterans. If I am going to become internet famous, I need to be blog smart. I am also glad I met a lot of the women at P. Allen Smith’s house in May and even though they are super awesome, they are nice. I like nice people, they aren’t scary.
Anyway, I just wanted to share my good news. If you are a gal from Arkansas, you should be attending this conference.
