Houston Blogger Symposium Recap

September 20, 2012

I wish I could think up a more catchy title for this, but I am awful at titles. Always have been. So that will just have to do! It’s right to the point, no?

This past Saturday, I was part of something amazing: the first ever Houston Blogger Symposium. (I won’t say first annual because you can’t call something annual until it’s happened at least times. But I have no doubt that this will become annual very soon!)

I have to admit though, I suck at taking pictures. I got so excited with everything going on around me that the only pictures that I took were one with Megan, the brilliant mind behind the symposium, and an iPhone picture of the Houston skyline(s) from the hotel. (Yes, you read that right: skylines. Multiple ones. That’s another story for another day.)

So, thanks to my lovely friends Meg O. and Meg S. I have some pictures to show you from the day. Without them, I’d be pretty bare, so thanks ladies!

Um, yeah. We’re basically besties now. We could totally be sisters.

The view from the conference room. I live in a pretty beautiful city.

Thankfully I had two familiar faces at my table, Meg O. and Michelle!

The Impeccable Pig has adorable clothing, jewelry and purses!

“You know what ELSE everybody likes? Parfaits! Have you ever met a
person, you say, “Let’s get some parfait,” they say, “Hell no, I don’t
like no parfait”? Parfaits are delicious.”

The “star blogger” panel. These ladies ROCK. My favorites? Mucho Mucho Bueno Bueno and Pretty Shiny Sparkly

Sponsor panel: RewardStyle, Francesca’s, and Langford Market

All of my Houston blogger lovelies. Lindsay, Jamie, and Selena are pictured.

What kind of blogger would I be without mocking myself? I’m not sure what I was going for with this look.

Look at that sexay thang! I mean, Megan the mastermind.

My right-hand lady, Lindsay.
My left-hand lady, Meg.
North Houston bloggers, whoop whoop!

How’s about a little squinty action to end this post?

I had heard that blogging conferences led to inspiration for bloggers but holy crap. I have never felt so inspired. As I mentioned the other day, I’m on a mission to find myself and my blog’s purpose. It’s going to be an awesome ride!

Have you ever been to a blogging conference? What was your favorite part?
