Is it just me or am I hearing, “On The Road Again” being played? Its quite possibly just in my head because I’m playing the part of world traveler these days.
The kids and I headed to Orlando Friday, in preparation for a week of fun in the sun at one of our favorite places, Disney.
But I’ve left those babies sleeping like, well, babies because popped up to Charlotte, North Carolina to
party like a rock star, er, I mean give the closing keynote to Type A Conference.
Type A Conference is part of TypeAparent.com and it’s all about professional growth for moms and dads and their blogs/brands. It’s chock full of great stuff, with sessions on everything you need to know to take your blog/brand to the next level. It’s also a great chance for sponsors to meet face to face with some of the people who speak directly to the audience they’re trying to reach.
Anyway, as you know, given my own reinvention, I just LOVE when people have a good idea, work hard incubating that idea, take their knocks, learn from them then work their way to success. I met a couple who are doing just that, in one corner of the exhibit hall.
Crash My Event is a company started by husband and wife team Reid and Wendy Stains who cut their teeth as wedding photographers. But they found a niche and capitalized on it, taking their expertise in photography, marrying it with fun events, a box full of props and social media to come up with this. Unlike traditional photo kiosks where you walk away with a handful of snaps that will likely end up in your junk drawer, the pics from Crash My Event are shared with your friends and family through Twitter and Facebook. Smart..
Kudos to Crash My Event for seeing into the future and for proving Good Enough Mother and all of us a really good time! So here I am in a few of my poses. Needless to say, they had to drag me out of there it was that much fun.
Danyelle Little of The Cubicle Chick and me… It’s pretty clear we both need to get out of the cubicle more.
Poor Tracy Beckerman of Lost In Suburbia, has NO IDEA what’s about to hit her.
I’m sorry, did you say something?
This has to be some sort of Greek tragedy.
I said, CLEAN YOUR ROOM NOW!
Anyway, thanks again to Crash My Event for the fun snaps and for Proxiproducts.com (a cool line of hydrogen peroxide products for the home and family) for bringing them to Type A Con and to the attention of the attention-starved Good Enough Mother.
I’ll have more tomorrow on the conference and my keynote!
