Relevant Blogging Conference

 

I have been mulling around the idea of attending a blog conference in the upcoming year. After reading all the Blissdom reports, I feel like I'm ready to take that next step of learning more of the ins and outs of blogging and connecting with other bloggers in real life. I really had no idea which conference I should go to or even what was really out there for bloggers. Then today I stumbled across information regarding the Relevant blog conference. When I read their mission-statement, I was hooked. I knew that this is the conference I needed to go to at this time in my life. So, tonight I participated in my first Twitter chat hosted by the Relevant team

The chat topic for this evening was getting a sponsor for the Relevant conference. I have to admit that it was a little difficult for me to keep up with the Twitter chat! Things kept freezing on me, but there was a wealth of good information shared.  Tommy Nelson, a Christian children's publishing company that markets books, Bibles videos and more, is one of the main sponsors of the conference and also participated in the chat. They hosted several give-aways and one special person actually won a ticket to the conference compliments of Tommy Nelson

What makes me excited is that this conference centers around my passions: my Savior, my family, and friends. Here's a quote from their site:

"We support women turning their hearts toward home and using their blogs to bless their families while also engaging the world for the glory of God." ~Relevant Blog Conference

This evening, before I put my daughter to bed, she brought me her favorite book. We have read it so many times that she knows all the words. She loves the characters. I love that this story gives me another opportunity during our day to talk about God. When I flipped the book over I realized that the same company that published that book was going to be a part of this evening's Twitter chat. How cool! I am thankful for Tommy Nelson for making godly materials available for families. And I think it would be so awesome to be a part of a conference that they are sponsoring.
