NC Mom Bloggers Conference Days 3 & 4

Girls of Ocean Isle
A picture from the day we checked out
Day 3 of the conference was full of useful information.  We had sessions on building relationships online with Chele Chesnut and Heather Underwood.  One of the things we learned was to know who we are and stand behind what we believe in.  Too bad I didn't have my camera with me!


The next session was by Molly Gold and it was Organizational Tools for Bloggers.  I'll be honest and say that this class was WAY over my head!  I am the type of person who loves to fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants!  Barb, on the other hand, loved this session!  Molly is her new hero!  I did learn about setting boundaries during this session.


Growing Your Visibility Online by Cord Silverstein was great!  I learned a lot of valuable things from his presentation.  He's from the marketing end, so I learned things from the other end of the spectrum.


The last session of the conference was by Erin Lane who works with Scandinavian Child.  I was lucky enough to win a Yucky Stuff Bag from them!  Which is awesome since Hunter gets carsick A LOT!  Erin's talk was on The Art Of The Pitch, or how to approach businesses when you want to work with them. 


After all those intense sessions, some of the ladies decided to have a pool party that night.  I was all for that, lol!  I was the first (bravest) to put on a bathing suit, however, after that lots of the other ladies put theirs on too, and swam and got in the hot tub.


Some didn't have a swimsuit and still ended up in the pool, lol!


It was a nice way to end the conference!  I am going to do a post on some of the things I learned that can help you grow your blog, too!

Hi Nancy:) It's so good to see y'all having a good time. I'll bet Hunter is missing his mommy too. Maybe just a little bit;?
