Kind of late on the bandwagon, but as some who also works full-time I think my reason was valid. I attended the Bloggy Boot Camp Atlanta on October 11, put on by the fabulous Sway Group and SITS Girls. This was my first ever blog conference and it was as wonderful as expected. They put the focus on how to become a better blogger and how to make the most out of this part of my career. The support was amazing since they made sure you knew they believed in you. Along with that, I met some other bloggers who I will be checking out their own blogs. But I wanted to post a few highlights for those who never attended one. Plus this will serve me as a reminder on the things that I need to work on as I grow my own dreams.
1. Have an end game in mind.
I think this is a key to success. Knowing that you will get there and acting like it will assists you in the process. I do not need to believe in myself, I need to KNOW that I will achieve it.
2. Don’t over work yourself.
I got to admit, this one was a big issue for me. I work from the moment I get up, to the very early in the morning. I need to plan my days better so that I can take care of me and my work in a good manner.
3. Break out of my shell.
I admit it, I am shy. I loved the fact that Bloggy Boot Camp made me socialize with others. It felt good to step out of my shell and see things do indeed work itself out that way. I want to grow my “tribe” of blogger friends. This will not only force me to do so, but perhaps boost my confidence as well.
4. Step out of comfort zone.
Again, this is a huge problem for me (can you see a theme here?). I need to be okay with stepping outside of my comfort zone and try new things. I get comfy in my space with the fear of rejection from brands/companies. However, I will NEVER grow if I stay in safe zone. This will be a key life lesson I think on many fronts.
You may also now see a few more personality style posts, as this is part of my comfort zone breaking. This one is a little out of character for my blog, but I am liking it so far! I have plenty of notes to work through and I will be making my way to be who I want to become online. As for future blogging events, I will hopefully be making my way there as well.
Did you ever attend a Bloggy Boot Camp and did you attend the Atlanta one this year?
