Bloggers Unite

When tickets first went on sale for the 2012 TX Style Blogger Conference, I quickly rushed to buy mine.  By the time the conference came around, I honestly was very nervous and almost felt like backing out. Why? I don't know, maybe that scared insecure little girl inside of me saying...danger, danger...powerful, fashionable women that have amazing blogs.  Luckily the traffic, horrible weather, and my insecurities didn't keep my away.  

I was nervous walking in to the first event, but I was instantly welcomed by warm smiles and wonderful conversation.  Every woman I met had a great story, and I left every night of the conference extremely excited I had made new fashion friends.  I was seriously giddy.  One of the biggest things I took away from the conference was, I don't have a passion for blogging, and I probably won't blog much longer.  Is it weird that I would attend an amazing blogging conference, and I would come away realizing I don't want to blog?  I don't think so.  I do enjoy telling my stories and talking about life and fashion, but it is becoming more of a hassle rather than a joy.  I experience a bit of anxiety when I think of quitting blogging cold turkey, but lately I have been blogging less and less.  I'm still not 100% sure what I want to do, but I did learn a good lesson from Kendi, "Your blog is not your purpose. Let it drive your purpose."  Thank you Indiana and staff for a wonderful conference, and the opportunity to meet some amazing women that all have meaningful stories to tell. 

Here are a few pics that sum up the weekend.

Great swap presented by Swap.com & Lulus! I scored this awesome leopard print purse.

Got to meet the hilarious, Courtney Kerr.  I'm pretty much die laughing every time she has any commentary on Most Eligible Dallas.

 Loved the PoshMark Party! I'm about to post a ton of my clothes on the new App.

Made new friendships with these ladies.

Jesse, it was a pleasure meeting you! I'm so glad you had a great time at TxSC and I really do hope that we're able to see each other again soon!

Wow, such a great event! And the nerves are normal, I promise - bloggers are an intimidating group. I wish I didn't live so far away from EVERYTHING!

Loving all the photos you took...I was a terrible photog and snapped maybe three pics. What a fab recap, Jesse - it was an epic (and exhausting!) weekend, huh?
