ProBlogger: The Weekend That Was.

You know what? After attending the ProBlogger conference I could rehash the pages of squillions of notes I took and talk about ebooking and branding and community and Karl Stefonovic on Jupiter's 42nd moon (don't ask) but there are others out there who are far more eloquent than me, so I'll leave it up to them. 

Attending Problogger for the second year in a row simply reinforced the fact for me that blogging isn't just a whole heap of words on a page. It's about connections. It's about community. It's about a fresh wave of new media rolling over the top of old, and nurturing fledging relationships with brands to create something exciting.

You know what it's also about? Feeling like you're right at home. Feeling like you're surrounded by those who just get you and don't think you're weird for being permanently attached to your phone and instagramming the crap out of everything. About connecting with some of the best friends you could ever have, even if you only see them once a year. Tony, we didn't get a photo together! How is that possible? You are amazing, and I'm so glad we got to catch up again this year! 

My girl crush Eden, the spunky Rah, adorable Liz,  fabulous Suger and my cosmic twin Danimezza

It's about doing the things you would never normally do. Like running between hotel floors in your PJs and bare feet to watch movies and eat cake in your friend's room. Like sitting on the floor of a hatted restaurant like Bar Maha with awesome people. Like being labelled presentation barbie. Like having the opportunity to listen to people like Sarah Wilson and Darren Rowse and absorbing all their info and advice. Like drinking the best hot chocolate while being surrounded by street art in Degraves st.

And yes, it's about fashion. While I pulled out the patterned tights and boots, I was in awe of how stylish Andrea from Fox in Flats was, loved the neon Danimezza was rocking and at one stage couldn't take my eyes off Nicki from Styling You's orange painted toes peeking out of her chartreuse heels. Awesome. 

I've saved the best for last. Dani, my cosmic twin, I love you to pieces. I can see us still doing this when we're in our sixties, consulting each other on what we'll be wearing, sharing Twirl bars and supporting each other every step of the way when building on our hopes and dreams. 

Now, it's time to decipher my squillions of notes and shape them into lessons plans and incorporate them into my teaching for my students. I'll be guiding a new wave of bloggers, and after giving them all the information from this weekend how could they not succeed? I also have a few new ideas (ok, maybe more than a few) to workshop for my own blog, and I can't wait to see them come to life over the next few months.

Problogger 2013? Bring it on.
