The 2015 Texas Style Council CAMP is just one week away! Just a friendly reminder for all you fellow bloggers and Etsians and business owners who are also going. 🙂 I for one am pretty darn excited. Sleepaway camp with a bunch of awesome women? Where we also get to learn stuff that’s good for our businesses/blogs? AND pretend we’re 10 by doing the ropes course and other camp-y things? YES, PLEASE.
You should’ve looked over and signed up for your sessions already. Personally, I’m doing Lab A Capture (photography), Discussion C Shift (refocus), Discussion C Connection (network), and the Kickstart Lab (business strategy). Plus the keynotes and camp-wide things, of course.
Speaking of camp-wide things, here are some things every attendee should look over:
This past weekend was the 2013 Texas Style Council Conference. Speakers, staff, sponsors, volunteers and ~400 attendees gathered for 3 days of mingling, workshops and fun in downtown Austin. If you’ve been a blog follower for awhile, you may remember I attended this conference last year – my very first and very intimidating/overwhelming blog conference experience. I’m happy to say this year was a million times more fun and useful! Partly because I knew more what to expect and had been working on my shyness factor; partly because this year covered ALL SORTS of business/blog/DIY topics, not just fashion, and […]
This weekend I’ll be attending (and volunteering at!) the Texas Style Council conference. I’m pretty excited about it, and just a smidge nervous because, hello, introvert. But I went last year, so I know more what to expect, and know some girls attending, so it’s already that much less nerve-wracking. That being said, part of the reason behind going to a conference is to network and meet people, so please come say hi! I’ve been told by some now-close friends that I come off as a bit aloof upon first meeting, but that’s just my introverted-ness and suckiness at […]
Day 1 – Friday The TxSC corner at Taverna for happy hour was already full by the time I battled my way through traffic to parking, but I got a free drink and chatted up some fun ladies. This is where I first met Haley, Chelle, D’Andra, and Emily, all of whom are fabulous and I hung out with more later that weekend. I talked to Haley without recognizing her for a few minutes, even though I’ve read her blog for awhile now. D’oh. And it was nice finally meeting up with Emily, who lives here in Round Rock with […]
Things I learned from my experience at this weekend’s TxSC blogger conference: It’s harder to recognize bloggers in person based on their outfit photos/the picture in their sidebar than I had anticipated. I am still really bad at small talk and approaching people I don’t know to talk. I’m not trying to be unfriendly/unsociable, I promise. 2 hours is about my limit for really crowded, really loud parties. Then I go into sensory overload and need to get OUT. Even if you know DST is kicking in and you’re losing an hour, set a reminder! Otherwise you WILL still forget […]
