i heart blogshop


I often wish I had started blogging earlier, back when I was living in California. 

This is partly because I can't seem to find any photos from those days and partly because of my insane jealously at the sheer blogging talent that seems to stem from the West Coast. Events, summits, collaborations - all this American goodness is happening while the Australian blogging world seems to be moving at a slower pace (although admittedly in the right direction). 

When I found out that Bri & Angela from BlogShop where finally coming to Australia I couldn't believe my luck. Then I found out the class was sold out. Then I did something out of character - I took a long shot and emailed them to ask if they needed any help. The surprising part? They said yes.

So next weekend I'll be hanging out with 2 super talented ladies I've admired from afar and a roomful of other local bloggers. I don't know if I'll be serving lunch or mopping the floor and to tell you the truth, I don't really care. This is something I've wanted to do for so long and I still can't quite believe my luck. I'll be back to report back next week with more photos than you bargained for...

That's awesome! I think there are so many cool Australian bloggers out there though. I can't wait to hear about your experience. How funny you said mopping a floor. I think not. You might get surprised again! Good luck!

Great come back...asking to help!!!! Trust me you don't have to live out of the US to feel out of it. I live in Florida, where none of the great conferences or retreats are located.

Oh, I'm so happy I found your blog! I loooove it! I, too, did something that scared me - I reached out to the organisers of The Hive, the European Blogging Conference to provide decorations and not only did they say yes I attended as their guest. It was such a thrill! I **LOVE** DLF, meeting Bri would have been amazing! Bravo you. It's really a pleasure to read through everything you've achieved since. Bisous from Paris xx
