Hey, blogger friends, here’s a heads-up about a LOCAL event! Even if you don’t blog yet, but want to learn more about it, you can come! Some info from the Arkansas Women Bloggers site about the conference:
We all dream of Blissdom, BlogHer, Blog Sugar and the like… but funds, family, time, location and reality get in the way. Here’s your chance to unplug for the weekend, network with other Arkansas women bloggers, pick up tips, gain inspiration and grow.
The Arkansas Women Bloggers Unplugged mini-conference is a networking retreat and informal blogging conference all rolled into one.
Feel free to bring those laptops, chi chi tablets and smartphones if you have separation anxiety, but don’t plan to spend any time with them. You won’t want to with the speakers, activities and old fashioned chatting you’ll cram into every spare minute.
So… plan now to just do it. Step away from the screen. You can do this. We’ll have an idyllic setting and real, live, face to face connections with other bloggers and inspiring speakers to fuel and refresh you to return home ready to face it all. You know, the work – the play – the cooking – the cleaning – the amazingly improved and refocused blogging.
