Normally I adhere to the rule, “What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.” But I couldn’t resist telling people about the amazing time I had at Blogalicious 2012 in Las Vegas.
Last year’s conference was my first. I was a bit nervous because I attended alone. But I’m so glad I took the risk. I was in a space that I identified with so much; a conference full of creative, passionate women with business dreams, who love social media and desire to learn more. I found myself among a group of people who work hard, but make time for fun too. I was in love.
I connected with a social media maven I’ve admired for a long time.
I met the first black woman to win a Sundance award for best film director (and she follows me on Twitter).
