49 Days and Counting…..

Are you attending any blog conferences this year?  As I gear up to co-host my very first blog conference, Reviewer’s Retreat, I am learning just how much work it is to pull together a successful event.  My business partner, Cecelia from Cool Baby Kid and I have taken great pride in coordinating a conference that is the perfect mix of education, fun and family and with only 49 days to go, we couldn’t be more excited…..
…..or freaked out.  Not sure which.  I have attended several blog conferences in the past and have an idea of what I like and what I don’t, but I have never given much thought into how much work went in to meticulously planning every detail.  Imagine a series of conveyors (like at airport baggage claim) carrying the tasks that remain to be completed in those short 7 weeks continually circulating in my brain.  Program design, signage, name tags, catering, and the all important announcement of Reviewer’s Retreat 2012 (whoo hoo!)….I wish there was a picking system to help me decide how to prioritize or perhaps I should create a spreadsheet with tasks to print and apply to my daily schedule.
While planning the conference has been a ton of work, it has also been a lot of fun and a great learning experience for Cecelia and myself!  We absolutely cannot wait to share with you all everything we have planned for our attendees.  See you all in May!

    I don’t think they have these in my area. I am really amazed that most people in my area (small, remote) don’t even know what a blog is.
    I hope you great success and mega-fun!
