Blog Sugar - My First Blog Conference

This past weekend I attended my very first blog conference...Blog Sugar! I learned a lot about myself over the weekend thanks to some fantastic girls.

At Blog Sugar I was so nervous my stomach was in knots till I left the building. I was overwhelmed and felt as though I didn't belong. I have only been blogging for about 6 months now and at Blog Sugar I was surrounded by such amazing and talented girls whom I felt so small next to. In the end I know I deserved to be there and I loved listening to their stories, their advice and their laughs. It all was so intoxicating....I couldn't get enough. In fact I still feel as though I am on a sugar high...a Blog Sugar high.

Reflecting back on the weekend I have realized a common trend...encouragement. I was very vocal about my nerves and through out the weekend my closest blogger gal pals gave me unconditional encouragement. While I sat listening to the speakers detail their stories and advice I heard encouragement. And while driving home I heard encouragement. Sometimes all you need is a little encouragement to make you feel like your worth something.

Because of the overwhelming sense of encouragement I have been feeling since Blog Sugar...I intend on focusing on my blog and business. I will forget how many followers I have and stop obsessing over how many people view my blog a day. I need to let things happen at their own pace, I need to let God take control. {Which I always have a hard time doing}

I'm excited for the new things I have planned for Baby Boy Bakery and I look forward to the future. I also can't wait for the next blog conference so I can redeem myself and show people just how fun I can be. {No more wall flower!}

In the end Blog Sugar was amazing and I feel so blessed to have gone and spent time with some great new friends.


To the girls I spent this past weekend with;

I thank you for you warmth and hospitality over this past weekend. I don't think I could have made it through with out your never ending generosity. I am so grateful to have you as a resource and most of all a friend. I cherish our first laughs together and look forward to spending more time with you. I met you for a reason, and I am excited to see what God has planned for us next!
