Hello friends! I had an amazing weekend at the Haven Conference in Atlanta. If you’ve never been, I’d highly recommend it. I learned so many things that are going to help me improve our blog and connect better with our readers. I also met brand representatives from key companies I’d like to work with in the future. The best part though was getting to meet so many of my blogger friends that I only knew through cyberspace. I especially loved being able to hang out with three of my girls from our weekly Think and Make Thursday link party. They’re even sweeter, kinder and more fun that I could have ever imagined!
Needless to say after an incredible weekend like that I’m exhausted, overwhelmed AND inspired all rolled into one. The first step though is putting away all of the amazing goodies we received from sponsors and vendors at the event. If that doesn’t convince you to be there next year, I don’t know what will! I’m already penciling it onto my calendar and telling every home/DIY blogger I know that I hope to see her there.
And now to get back into the swing of things with our regular weekly party. I can’t wait to see what you’ve been working on!
Think and Make Thursday is a link party designed to share Bright Ideas for the home with you each week! For those of you who aren’t bloggers or who may be new to the link party concept, link parties are a great way for you to find hundreds of different ideas for the home all in one place. At link parties, bloggers share their latest and greatest DIY projects, home improvement projects, crafts, recipes, kids stuff and home-related tips.
Bloggers, we’re so glad you’re here and can’t wait to be inspired by your Bright Ideas! Think and Make Thursday opens at 6 AM ET every Thursday for you to share what you’ve been working on with a chance to be featured the following week.
