This past week I did something amazing. Really amazing. I’m pretty sure you won’t believe it. Watch my video to hear what I was up to…
Yes, that’s right. You heard it. I went to a blogger conference called Shiftcon. My first conference. When we checked in I thought we were going to get a swag bag. I was right. Except that there were three swag bags! They were filled with loot! And throughout the conference I got even more stuff from brands. Check it out!
One of the most amazing parts of the conference was the people I met. Right when I got there I got to meet Leah Segedie. She is the one who invited me to come here and she runs the conference. She is also really well known in the blogging world. I also saw my friend Tamara Rubin who runs Lead Safe America. She also snuck me into the pool since I wasn’t staying at the hotel. Here is Tamara with me and my mom.
I also met lots of nice new people. Many of them were famous bloggers! And some of them were just getting started. I thought everybody was super nice.
Below is Andrea Donsky. Her blog is called Naturally Savvy and you can check her out too!
I also got to meet Janice Roodsari. She was also really friendly and she knows my friend Tamara too.
I also got to meet two people I have wanted to meet. I met Catherine McCord from Weelicious. We make her recipes a lot and my brother also really likes to watch her videos. And on the last day I got to meet Robyn O’Brien. She was super nice too. Robyn was speaking there because she is one of the people who is working hard to make food safer. I have a lot of friends with really bad food allergies and Robyn is really frustrated because she thinks a lot of the allergies are because of the chemicals that some companies are putting in our food. I think that we should not buy food from those companies and then they would go out of business.
I learned that some bloggers post things on Facebook every hour! I definitely do not have time to do that since I am in school and have other activities. But I might consider posting more often. I also got really inspired to start Instagram and I met a couple of people who offered to help me with that because they are really good at it.
I also gave out a lot of business cards to brands and some of them were really excited to work with me. Some of these were already my favorite brands so I feel very lucky.
All in all, I had a great experience at Shiftcon 2015. I can’t wait to go back next year!
