My head is spinning. Last week I attended Alt for Everyone, the first online rendition of Alt Summit, and have so many ideas racing through my mind about directions I could take this blog. The conference was, in a word, fabulous. (If you're a blogger and haven't heard of Alt, check it out. Now.)
Sessions focused on design and business aspects of blogging, and the instructors were all hot-shots in their fields. It's kind of cool to hear about building your brand from someone who has more than 14 million followers on Pinterest. Okay, it's really cool. (Joy Cho, you're awesome!)
I was able to select seven hour-long sessions and learned an enormous amount from each speaker, including Laurie Smithwick, Adrienne Arieff, Susan and William Brinson, Liz Stanley, Melanie Blodgett and Sara Urquhart. And one of the best parts about Alt was getting to network with the other attendees, who are all insanely creative. I'm looking forward to checking out their blogs this week for even more inspiration.
Thank you Alt for Everyone! (Now back to ruminating on where to go with Calm Cradle...modifications to come as soon as my children accept that sleep is a good and necessary thing.)
