So here’s the thing. I love Jesus. Have you picked up on that? I do!
And about two years ago, I began reading two blogs. One called Naptime Diaries and one called The Tiny Twig. And then all of a sudden, the two of them announced that they were going to be hosting a conference together. A conference called Influence. And it was for people who felt called to make much of Jesus through their online life.
And I thought, “Hey! That’s me!”
And maybe that’s you. Or maybe you think it might be you, but you want to learn more because you’re just not there yet.
When I saw the announcement for the first Influence Conference, I knew I had to be there. And it did not disappoint. It was the most encouraging, life-giving, uplifting blogging environment I’ve seen.
Everyone was there for the same purpose. To learn how to share her own story for His glory. And to learn how to leverage the internet to make much of Jesus while supporting your family a little along the way.
At the end of last year’s conference, the Influence Network was created. Oh boy. The women who are a part of this network have encouraged me, inspired me, and challenged me in the past year. You probably already read a lot of their blogs.
I will be speaking with three other inspiring ladies, Natalie- The Busy Budgeting Mama, Lindsay- Hello Hue, and Nicole- The Style Hatch, on the Accessible Experts Panel. We will be answering all your questions about how we make real and consistent money, but are still all about sharing the Gospel on our blogs.
There is still time for you to come to the conference! And I will love for you to come! And then come say hello. Give me a hug. Let’s have some coffee and talk. It’s people like you and people like me. And this beautiful mix of people who are just ready to support and encourage!
So what am I bringing to the conference?
Aside from the obvious, I’m bringing…
1. Hair products. Well, not so much the products as the tools. I’m a hair tool junkie. Round brushes, paddle brushes, blow dryer, curling irons. I could pack a separate back just for the hair tools, but I plan to carry on, so I’m going to try not to do that.
2. Comfortable shoes. Blisters and blog conferences do not complement each other. So I vow to avoid the aching feet and to make wise foot-wear decisions!
What am I most looking forward to about the conference?
1. The community. Hands down. Hugs. Laughter. Maybe some squealing? I’m an introvert, but if I can see my people, I am set and oh-so-happy! Watch me come out of my shell!
2. A weekend away to worship and grow. I know I will learn so much from these wise women. I’m just so excited!
Okay… so here’s what we need from you. What kinds of questions would you like to have answered on the Accessible Experts panel? You can still join us at the conference September 26-28!
