Hi again IT’S MEEE. Yes, guys, it’s Saturday, and I’m breaking blog schedule and popping in with some newsies.
As much as we love being at home in our T-shirts and jeans (okay fine sweats) all day, Bjork and I are getting all profesh and hitting the road this fall for some food slash blog conferencing. Beep beep!
When we were living half a world away in the Philippines, I started to get that sort of buggy feeling about wanting to (brace yourself for the obnoxious term) network and eat num food and make friends by going to some conferences. But at the time when I was wanting that, I was, uhm, like, way over in the jungle getting my world rocked and eating full cartons of mangoes.
Last fall after we came back to the States, we headed out to an IACP conference in Seattle for some awesome learning and speaking and people meeting (AND THE FOOD. worth it.) You guys, it was so fun for us to travel together and have this cool conference experience and we totally got the itch to do more of this sort of thing.
Buuuut behind the scenes it was kinda super stressful because after a very full weekend meeting people, presenting, and learning, we took a red-eye flight home (no no no no no) and then – wait for it – I went to school the next morning. I tried to be Awesome Elementary School Teacher Who Is Patient With Kids while making a mental note that we better keep conferences reserved for the time in our lives when we not only in the homeland country, but also not so overwhelmed with multiple jobs.
So here we are coming full circle and then some – our primo conference time is right now! We’re in the US, blogging and related entrepreneurial things are both of our primary jobs right now, and as a result, we’re both super pumped to be attending and speaking at two conferences this fall. I am crossing my fingers that you and I will find each other at the snack table at one of these events as we’re both reaching for the same goat cheese crostini and our hands will touch and we’ll look up and… fate.
