I’m On My Way To Blogalicious!

I can’t believe it! I’m finally attending my second blog conference, Blogalicious. After two weeks of being extremely busy, even too busy to blog at times, I am looking forward to a full weekend of learning, networking, meeting new friends and seeing some old friends too.

Right now, I’m blogging on the Amtrak train enjoying the unexpected FREE wi-fi! When I made reservations a few weeks ago, I saw that the trains with wi-fi were a hundred bucks more so I was a bit disappointed. I’m so happy for this unexpected surprise. Thanks Amtrak!

So, why have I been so busy? Let me explain….

Things in my household will be different come Monday. You see, I will be joining those who work outside of the home. Yup, the good ol’ 9-5.

I sent my resume for an office position, had an interview with 3 people and the very next day I got the call saying i got the job! I was so ecstatic. I will still blog but it will probably be done during the nights or weekends. With 3 kids, a needy (LOL) husband, a dog and a cat, I know I will be busier than ever! But I’m ready to take that challenge. I know there will be more stress along the way but at least I’ll have consistency in my life. With professional blogging (meaning getting paid), money isn’t always consistent and that’s what I need at this time in my life.

I have tons to post in the next few weeks. A few giveaways here and there, my trip to Vermont – courtesy of Green Mountain Coffee roasters and some random stuff.

I will try my best to blog while at the conference but I’m not promising. I hear Blogalicious will be full of great sessions and I plan on going to most so I will most likely be exhausted.

If you’re on twitter, look out for the hash tag #Blogalicious11 for all updates and information. And while you’re there, don’t forget to follow me as well, @newyorkchica. 😉

Enjoy your Thursday everyone!

    Hope you have a great time!

  3. I saw your Twitter comment about blogging not being about competition and I had to check out your blog. I couldn’t agree more- most of my readers found me because of other bloggers, be it guest posts, collaborative projects, or even blog hops. Sometimes someone would simply point and say, “That Doug guy, he’s worth reading.” I try to keep my blogging karma pure by doing the same thing somewhat regularly.

    Enjoy the convention- I am jealous.
