In January 2011, I had the pleasure of attending the Blissdom Blogging Conference thanks to Therapon Blissdom is a networking, bonding, and educational conference on everything and anything related to the blogosphere. In my opinion, what sets Blissdom apart from other conferences is that is that it offers a rich, supportive and nurturing environment to help you tap into your passion and learn and network with others who share your same passions and interests.
Some of the highlights of Blissdom were: The Wisdom Workshop on Vlogging, the opening keynote by Brene Brown on the art of Balance and Living your passion; the closing Keynote by Scott Stratten of Unmarketing highlighting how to master social media; a wonderful dinner hosted by Therapon at Ellendale’s with some amazing bloggers, deelish Southern inspired food and a meaningful conversation about What Real Beauty is. I finished off this great trip to Nashville with a day of shopping in the adorably quaint little town of Franklin, TN with some of my fashion and beauty tribe members @JoLynneMusings (she took some of the fab pics below) @charmedvalerie and @blondemomblog (our tour guide!)
Here are some of the pictures that highlight what a great time I had:

Me and my extra-large BLING! This was right before the super-fab Michelle Branch took the stage. And don’t miss the “sloppy joes” on my plate!
