This weekend was a weekend full of learning and loud, over whelming experiences - but, I survived, not because of anything I did but in spite of all that I did !!!!!
ProBlogger was an amazing event where I learned lots. And probably could have learned lots more had I not been quite so over whelmed by the amount of information that was pumped out in two days.
There were times I just went and hid in a corner because the noise was deafening and the feeling of not knowing many people was just too over whelming for me. I knew that I didn't do social situations very well (and have since realised that this is something that has slowly deteriorated over time because I never used to be this bad) but I never realised just exactly how inept I was at dealing with meeting new people - or even talking to people that I have met once or twice ! I felt more comfortable sitting, playing on my phone in the corner charging my iPad that I never used !!
The speakers were amazing. They had so much information and they were all happy to answer any questions that were thrown at them. A wide range of topics were covered and sometimes it was really difficult to know which of the three streams to pick because I always felt like I was missing out on something by not going to others !!! Thankfully the virtual ticket allows me to watch the sessions I couldn't get to although (a) I still have to find out exactly how to watch them and (b) find the time to watch them.
The other information I received was from JF Gibson who is offering a Social Media Audit Spring Special for $49.95. I received 3.5 pages of informative feedback on my blog and the social media platforms that I am using. I have these printed out and will work my way through her suggestions as I can. They all make total sense and she has given me some direction which I was badly in need of. If you are wanting more information on this, I really recommend getting in touch with Jodi and taking her up on the spring special. (Please note - this is not sponsored. I didn't receive a discount for posting this. I wanted to share it because it is really informative and I can see the benefit to me of following her suggestions.)
So, with this information overload, I'm guessing it will be a while between posts as I try to digest it all and get my blog going in the right direction for both myself and my readers.
It's Tuesday which means it's time to join in with Jess from Essentially Jess for #IBOT. Why not join in if you haven't joined already ?
Have a fantastic week !
