In case you non-obsessive bloggers don't know what that is, I'll tell you. It was the Casual Blogger Conference 2010.
Some anonymous lovely person donated two full conference passes for me and a friend to attend. I spent almost two full weeks trying to find someone to come with me, and I finally found someone to go.
Two weeks prior to the event, my husband's boss decided to take an impromptu vacation that lasted through the days of the conference. My husband could not get either day off. So I took a look at the schedule and decided that I would go to the Thursday and Friday night socials, and then my husband would work on Saturday night so I could attend the classes during that day.
Well, things didn't quite work out how I wanted them to.
My friend that was going to come with me decided not to come the week before the conference.
I tried going to the social on Thursday night and felt so out of place, not really knowing anyone. So I left after being there about 20 minutes.
I ended up not going to the social on Friday night. Long story of why I didn't go, but I didn't.
I only made it to two breakout sessions on Saturday: The Art of Storytelling and Finding Your Voice.
All in all, I hope that I can try to go next year, if they do it again. And hopefully next year, we won't have the same scheduling conflicts that we did last year.
I did enjoy the session I went to, although now I hardly know what my "voice" is, whereas before I thought I knew. I think I have to reinvent this entire blog, start from scratch. I don't know how much I'll be posting for a while. It may take time to morph it into something better. We'll see.
