My Professional Background - Once upon a time, I wanted to be a motivational speaker. Actually, I was a professional motivational speaker for about 5 years.:
Ree Drummond, The Pioneer Woman

Ladies and Gentleman (dad),

Brian and I had the incredible opportunity to spend the weekend in Chicago at BlogHer ’13 with 5,000 of my favorite, female bloggers.

Hellooooooooo, ear plugs!

Brian went to Walgreens the first night we were there to purchase headache medicine. Kid you not. I don’t think he’s ever been around that many women at one time. It was a bit of sensory overload for him.

“Why is everyone squealing?”

I, on the other hand, was in my element. I loved that I got the chance to meet some of my favorite, fellow bloggers face-to-face—like The Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond). She is as genuine and adorable in person as she is on her show.

And just so you know, she’s not super interested in adopting 30-somethings.

(Can’t blame a girl for trying.)

In addition to Ree Drummond, I was pretty starstruck by Anna Luther from My Life and Kids as well as Kerry Rossow from HouseTalkN. I followed the two of them around like a Justin Bieber groupie.

Squealing included.

And those two beautiful, talented women were kind enough to create a vlog with me so we can all impart our networking wisdom to the professional blogging world.

Here’s a little preview:

Y’all just need to brace yourselves for Thursday. These networking tips will change your life.

Assuming that you mainly network with toddlers.

    OMG!  You met Anna!  I don’t think I’d live through the thrill of being in a room with both of you!  Be still my heart.  Glad you had a good time and am looking forward to hearing all you learned…..even tho’ I’m not a blogger.
