I'm Speaking at FitBloggin!

I am thrilled to announce that I will be speaking at FitBloggin this year! I will be co-hosting a workshop on how to design a media kit and use it to pitch to brands for products and sponsorship's. I am looking forward to meeting so many 'friends' that I know from the blog world and learning everything I possibly can from the lectures/workshops I attend to help keep the amazing momentum of this blog going!

As much as I was excited to find out I was selected to present there - I think I may have been even more excited at the location. Here's a hint:


Portland, Oregon! If you all remember from my Happiness Concept Map travel was at the top of my wishlist for 2013 and even my Pinterest travel board had Portland on it.  How perfect is this?


The conference is June 27-30 and I'm not sure what days I'll be arriving/leaving. My ideal timetable was to leave early Thursday morning from Pensacola and catch a later flight on the 30th to enjoy the morning in Portland before heading home. Of course, neither of those times are available so now I'm looking at leaving and arriving a day outside of the conference. For the 3 nights of the conference I'll be rooming with the adorable Haley from The Saucy Apple!


We'll be staying at the same Hotel the conference will be at - The Nines. Take a look at it. I'm pretty sure it's going to be the nicest Hotel I've ever been in.

I'm going to start a countdown clock I am that excited for this trip. If you've ever been to Portland let me know what the 'must do' activities/restaurants are! I'm still unsure how much time I'll have there but I think it will be at least a full day outside of the conference dates.

Also - this is also going to be my first blogging conference. If you've been to one before what did you like best about it? Any surprises that you weren't prepared for?
