Who’s says work isn’t fun?? In my BlogLife it definitely can be especially when I attend a BlogHer Conference. My Day 1 at #BlogHer17 proves work and fun can go hand in hand.
I remember as I packed my bags earlier this week to make the trip to Florida. I was talking to my husband about how I want to try and fit in a bit of fun. I told him this was definitely a work trip for me because I had a set of things I wanted needed to do for networking, learning and promoting my business and my brand during this conference.
#BlogHer17 has Officially begun!!! Keynote Speakers @AnastasiaAshley and @gabifresh and host @taibeau are giving us the their keys to turning Passion into Profit . . . ? #P2P #BlogHer #BlogConference #BlogConferences #HiltonStory #Orlando #Florida #Blog #Blogger #BlogLife #NCBlogger #LifestyleBlogger #TheMrsTee
When I arrived and saw not only the amazingness that is the Hilton Bonnet Creek I knew that I wanted to be sure to have a balance of both work and fun. Let’s just say finding that balance wasn’t as difficult as I may have thought it would be.
Day 1 of #BlogHer17 started with me sending my dedicated roommate off to find the gym while I stayed in the room to order room service. Yeah, that’s how I roll! A plate of pancakes, a few mishaps with the in-room coffee machine and several social media posts later I was ready to get dressed to meet up with reps to finalize a few things on an upcoming hub reveal.
I continued my day by grabbing a quick snack from the lobby cafe and heading back to my room to make sure my bathing suit had a bit of time in the sun today. Once my roommate joined me we headed down to explore the lazy river pool.
This pool is! I mean just look at it! At first I was going to be reserved. We found two chairs a couple towels and sat for a few. We both eyed the pool, the people and the inner tubes floating nearby. It was time for a bit of fun! We grabbed our inner tubes and decided to take on the lazy river style fun of this amazing pool.
After a few tries and a few flips we found our flow and let the current take us. Okay, Andrea let the current take her. For some reason I kept feeling like I needed to paddle, flap, kick or something just to keep moving. That’s when Nono floated by and told me I was ‘doing lazy all wrong’. She explained to me the art of a lazy river – telling me to simply pick my feet up and float on by. Still, somehow when I saw her roommate Arlene taking an involuntary break in her inner tube near the stairs – I still felt the urge to paddle…LOL
Little did I know I would end up meeting these two Lovies again in the Registration line and then spending the rest of my day through Keynotes, Expo Hall straight through to dinner at the local Bahama Breeze. I was able to network my business, promote my brand and have a bit of fun all in the same day.
So if you’re ever wondering what makes BlogHer one of those Conferences you just have to experience. I’d say the ability to work your business and still have fun would be at the top of my list of reasons!
