I wanted to take a minute to share a little about my first blogging conference…….
This should be a 700 part series since there was so much learned and experienced, however I might loose some readers at some point!
I will tell you this was an AMAZING experience………………
It was just over a year ago that I first entered the world of Instagram, cause we were slowwwwwww on the Smart Phone train (cost was the factor not technophobes!)
What did I see but TONS of posts about SNAP Conference.
I already knew a little about SNAP but seeing these pictures brought it to life for me.
I saw bloggers I admire, the community and learning, and let’s face it looked FUN!!
I wanted to go so BADLY!
When SNAP came around this year, I thought I had to go, but cost was a factor (this is why I am salvage sister).
I entered contests, but it was a “Ninja Giveaway” when I was sick, sick, sick that got me my golden ticket!
I WAS GOING TO SNAP 2015!!!!!
Could there be a happier camper?
Thankfully I already talked with a blogging friend, Karen at Dragonfly and Lily Pads, about rooming together. She had 2 others…. Meegan from What Meegan Makes and Jessica from Designer’s Sweet Spot, so we were set (and they were the BEST ROOMATES EVER.)
I started reading posts and what to pack and what to take.
Then I started writing posts about what I will/won’t do there which you can read here and my version of how I prepared for the Road to Snap.
Like I said, I could give a million posts on this experience, but I am going to give the short (Am I already too late for that?) picture/caption version.
I have to admit, I hadn’t been on a plane in a long while so the packing and travel part was stressing me out a bit………….but this view was amazing. Now I just needed to figure out how I ended up with the only guy who reclined his seat in the plane. REALLY?
Okay, back to the conference…
First, there are side events like this THRIFT STORE TOUR…..HAD MY NAME ALL OVER IT!!!
One of the biggest highlights, for this Salvaged Sista, was a Thrift Store Tour to two local salvaged shops. AMMMMMAZING!
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have already seen one of my finds. I will be sharing the others so follow along if you want to see the other treasures.
Next, some PARTIES…………..
AND CLASSES, like this one on Photography….
Finally, no blogging conference would be complete without SWAG you take home! You need an entire suitcase for it! REALLY!
You know…I was so bummed last year when I couldn’t go. What I ended up finding out, I wouldn’t have been ready for it…..personally speaking. I now have some basic blogging knowledge and a few people to make the experience more enjoyable…FOR ME!!!
Hmmmm, God’s timing was spot on….imagine that!
So if you were disappointed that you couldn’t go this year, maybe next year will be just the right time for you!
Hopefully, I will see you there!
