Congrats ladies and we’ll see you in Nashville!


Three years and five conferences ago Tanis and I did our first rendition in a tiny little Nashville bar.
A Reckneck Woman...

Since then we’ve sang the same song three more times, once when I was pregnant, twice in costume, once with a cane and twice in a different country.


Sweet Karaoke


Blissdom is my favorite conference for several different reasons, karaoke parties being one of them. 2012 will be my 6th Blissdom conference and this year I will be a photography community leader. This year will feature a handmade marketplace, amazing keynotes and other equally (ehem) impressive community leaders with all levels of experience.

I wish I could see all of you there.

Luckily I will be seeing at least two more of you there.

That’s right, I’m giving away two full conference passes to the 2012 Blissdom Conference in Nashville, Tennessee February 23rd-25th.

(That’s 65 days!!)

Bring your comfy shoes and join me at the Opryland in February.

Good luck and I hope I get to squeeze your neck in Nashville!

  6. I’d love to go to Blissdom’12 to connect with fellow bloggers and companies…and PARTY (somewhat responsibly ;))

  7. Want to meet other bloggers and introduce myself to the companies. I am not a great writer but have so many blogging ideas and projects. I am kind of incredible things maker.

  8. I so badly need to get to a blogging conference!!!!! I want to learn everything- I have been blogging for 5 years, and feel clueless!

  9. so exciting!! i entered and did all of the other steps!! just heard about blissdom and I think it would be so much fun!! thanks for the contest!!

  10. Do you have any idea how awesome this is? Well ok yeah so you probably do. I LOVE this and how awesome for you to give away 2 passes. I’d happily provide my undying gratitude in exchange for one of them 🙂

  11. Oops, I forgot the part about WHY I want to go – because Blissdom is beyond awesome – it’s the conference where I actually learn things and can use them… and then have the motivation to come back and put them into use.

  12. I want to go to Blissdom to see you and the lovely Heather again. I also want to get my blogging mojo back, and there is no better place to do it.

  13. Why? Why not? I have heard so many wonderful things about Blissdom and some of my friends go! So that is 2 reasons! Add to that the awesome speakers (I can’t decide what track bcz of the cool speakers like Hyatt and Acuff) and I desperately want to go!!!

  14. I would love to win because apparently everyone wants me to come, but we really can’t afford the full cost!

  15. I read all these amazing blog posts about how much fun Blissdom is (not to mention how much everyone learns) and I’m tired of missing out! 🙂 I wanna go too. 🙂

  16. I need to be amongst my people.

  17. I would love to go. I have never been to Nashville. I attended my first blissdomca in Toronto about two months ago. It was incredible and a real eye opener for me. I need to know more and feel like I have so much more to gain from blissdomca ‘s brilliant speakers.

  18. I have never been to a Blissdom but it sounds like SO much freaking fun! Plus I was just in Nashville on a business trip and we had dinner at Opryland. Who WOULDN’T want to go hang out there for a few days?!

  20. I want to go to BlissDom so that I can make my blog BETTER! And it’s about dang time too. Oh, and a break from being mommy would be fantastic.

  21. I’ve never been to any blogging conference and so your favorite one sounds like an awesome place to start!

  22. I have never been to a blog conference and I think I’m missing a big perk of why people blog. I’ve heard that blog conferences are awesome. I’d love to connect with a few great bloggers and form some great friendships! Thanks!

  23. I want to go to Blissdom bc it is supposed to be the most amazing blogging conference. I love learning from others and improving my writing skills.
