Some exciting news!

I started blogging a little over two years ago. At the time, I had no idea where it would take me, I just wanted it to take me out of my yoga pants.

Well, two years and lots of fun, learning, friendships, opportunities later I have been presented with my biggest opportunity to date.

I am a panelist speaker for BlogHer 2013 Style Mini-Con in Chicago in July!!!!!

Yes, you read that right. Little ole me is going to be standing (hopefully sitting, actually) up there with Gabi from GabiFresh & Patrice from Afrobella. A speaker at BlogHer among so many other amazing men & women.

Are you kidding me??

I’m so honored.

We will be discussing how style bloggers are building rich, full careers leveraging their platforms but not relying totally on it.

I love it. I’m stoked about it. I don’t talk a lot about the business of blogging here, but I’ve been able to make an income and help support my family.

This is such a blessing. I have always wanted to be a speaker, to do something like this. And now, out of no where, I am getting my chance. I truly believe this is a gift from God and I’m not totally deserving. But he must have some different plans for me and I am open to see what they are.

For those of you who don’t know, BlogHer is the biggest network of bloggers in the world, and their conference is the biggest one held. You can obviously see why I am over the moon excited about this.

Will you be attending BlogHer ’13? If yes, let me know, I would absolutely love to meet you! And I will not be offended if you don’t come to my panel meeting. 🙂
