Friends, I was lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time (read: I’m pretty sure that Sal blogged about it at some point) and I snagged a ticket to the Minnesota Blogger Conference, which happened today (if you managed to remain oblivious to all of the crazy taking place on my Twitter feed).
What I embraced: That I am 23 years old and have absolutely no idea of what I want to do with my life. And more recently (since we all know I’m a life-planner to the extreme), I’ve come to accept that this is a totally appropriate place for me to be at in my life. Here? What you see is exactly what you get, because Tenaciously Yours, is about me living my life. I blog because I get a kick out of it, and because I truly believe that spending time writing every day makes me a nicer person. The fact that I happen to get to share my life with all of you is simply the best of all possible perks. It is a VERY cool thing.
What I love about blogging: The Universal Truth. For the record, Universal Truths (or “Big T” truths as I’ve heard them described) are the only thing I took away from high school philosophy class. There’s nothing more touching than when you stumble upon a new blog, or are reading one of your favorites and you find something that someone has shared and it helps you to realize that You Are Not Alone. Conversely, when I’m blogging + discussing different parts of my life and you all comment back sharing your experiences with the same thing, it reminds me that I Am Not Alone.
What was fantastic: I really had no idea of how LARGE the blogging community is in Minnesota. Reading “local” blogs outside of my immediate circle of friends isn’t something I’ve made an effort to do (ever) and honestly, I’m kind of excited to see the cities through the eyes of strangers.
In the meantime, I leave you all in pursuit of eight hours of sleep. Because if there’s one thing that my body is telling me, it’s that homegirl needs to rest. I’m tres excited to see where Tenaciously Yours, will take me in the coming months and could write about that for hours, but in the here and now, if I end up with stress-induced-the-seasons-are-changing-I-haven’t-been-resting-sickness, then y’all will have to bear witness to the trainwreck of the year.
