Oh blogging… you are one of those things that I mean to do, I want to do, but somehow, you get pushed to the side. And pushed some more. And covered up. With envelopes. (Pretty ones, but still…) And before you know it I’m avoiding you because it’s been too long to go back to where we left off – at least not without apologizing. And that is annoying. I’m sorry. (See???)
But I’m back. And with a vengeance. Last week I attended Schoolhouse Craft’s first annual Bloggers’ Summer Camp. I did it on a whim. A friend was going, and I figured we could carpool, and I knew if I went I would not only learn a lot, but that it would light a fire under me to actually log into my WordPress dashboard. The rest, as they say, is history.
The camp was awesome – I learned a lot and met all these fine panelists:
I also came out with a whole bunch of to-dos:
- Get a decent camera and learn how to use it. (HELP!)
- Finally do battle with Photoshop actions.
- Set up an editorial calendar.
- Post about once per week, but don’t feel obligated just because it’s Wednesday or something.
- Make potato salad. (Their lunch was tasty!)
Lots more stuff that is involved and will overwhelm me if I list it. Basically, I’m gonna be changing some stuff. AGAIN! It’ll be good.
If you have a crafty blog or a creative business, and are in the Seattle area, check out Schoolhouse Craft’s offerings. I’ll be attending their Annual Fall Conference in September – let me know if you’re going, and maybe we can eat potato salad (and get our $#*!) together.
