Carolina Girls Blogger Meet-up!

We attended our very first Blogger meet-up yesterday! What a great experience!! Needless to say, we were definitely the "newbie" bloggers but it was nice to hear everyone's advice and experiences. 

All the girls from the Blogger meet up in Columbia, SC on 9/15/12.

Blogger Meet-up Takeaways
(lessons learned)

1. Teachers can talk to ANYONE: it is amazing how you can drive 2 hours to a restaurant to meet people you have never met and feel completely comfortable for the next 2 1/2 hours discussing teaching, blogging, pinterest, family and life in general.

2. Apparently there are lows and highs when blogging. Well considering our blog has started off on the "low" end, hopefully we will be on the upswing very soon!

3. We need to blog at least once a week and no more than once a day. Thank you to Heather and Juli from Simple in Second for teaching us these blogging etiquette rules!
